Published: March 2015

Short rationale: Mosquito have a simple offering- a champagne bar without the caviar and a dessert bar without frosting. Located in Gastown, Vancouver the small room contradicts the expectation of a traditional dessert bar - edgy with a fine balance of masculine and feminine details. The brand created by Glasfurd & Walker draws on the interior design details and adds a layer of sophistication and luxury through custom designed typography, deep colour palettes and accents of metallic finishing on printed collateral such as menu's, wallpaper and stationery.

Brand: Old Standard Moonshine

Title: Brand Design

Agency: Chad Michael Studio

Agency Website:

Creative Director, Art Director, and Copywriter: Chad Michael

Photographer: Rusty Hill

Published: June 2015

Short rationale: Innovated, designed, and named by the studio, Old Standard Moonshine is the world's first moonshine design printed on fabric. Each label is hand printed, stitched, and numbered for the local folk of Colorado. Old Standard's design is inspired by the past before the time whiskey was industrialized and when making whiskey was a craft truly done by hand. "For close friends and combustible engines."
