Best of Savannah

Best of Savannah Party

We had a blast at the Best of Savannah Party last month! Thank you to all who make us the Best Design Firm in Savannah, and thanks for all the kind words about the cover design for the September/October issue of Savannah Magazine. Not to brag, but we think Cari definitely knocked it out of the park. (Thanks Caila!)

We loved the 1920’s and Art Deco-inspired party theme created by Joel and Erika Snayd — and this wasn’t our first rodeo with the dynamic duo of Rethink Design Studio. We previously worked with them the branding for the modern apothecary  See Jane (we designed the logo and collateral materials), located in Downtown Savannah, and to develop the brand platform and name for high end luxury cat product designer Catouri Cats.
