Short Suit ProductionsShort Suit Productions is a bilingual, agile production team. The logo is a bow tie which is what a person would wear with a short suit in a fashion sense. The bow tie consists of a play button and a video recorder reflecting the services of the production team, namingly production and post production. The bow tie stands alone in the T-shirt design, however a view finder is added in the logo to bring attention to the bow tie as if seen through a camera lens.

Leaf-shaped Business Card
May In Harbor CafeThe cafe is located in the newly developed suburban Beijing where streets are not yet named. The challenge was to communicate the accurate location along with other elements of a standard business card, while following the existing branding direction. To solve this problem, I illustrated a map demonstrating the cafe's geographical location with relations to local landmarks on the back of the card. On the front of the card, icons are used to indicate the variety of services. The leaf-shape was inspired by the "branch" in the exisiting logo. The idea was to hang the "leaves" to a "branch" that would act as a business card holder, serving both aesthetic and functional purposes.
