Reflect: Convicts’ letters to their younger selves.
The captivating portraits offer a rare glimpse into the minds of convicts who will spend much of their adult lives behind bars.

Holt then worked extensively in post-production to transfer the words of each letter into a perfect silhouette around each compelling portrait. In addition to the large, still photographs, live interviews with the inmates were also documented in a powerful video.

The absurdly well executed Ponysaurus identity and packaging by Raleigh, NC-based Baldwin&.
From an excerpt on the Brand New blog:
As if the pony and dinosaur illustration weren’t enough, the packaging and coasters show the logo inside what looks like an egg, adding to the absurdity of the brand — yet the application and execution are pure class. The giant paper wrapper feels luxurious but without being stuffy, like a street drunkard’s brown paper bag but awesome-r. With clients like this who needs fake projects? A warm round of applause to the clients, for letting wild stuff like this be designed and produced.
With a broad target audience in mind, we developed a fun, light-hearted, yet classic identity that was extended across a variety of applications including signage, menus, merchandise and website.
