Bravo to our awesome client Vireo Health! For the people dealing with chronic pain, cannabis-based pain relief is a much needed alternative to opioid-based options that currently dominate the market. Vireo Health partnered with Replace to design the new brand identity and packaging system for this medical marijuana innovator. Vireo Health provides pain relief alternatives for the people of New York and Minnesota. Congratulations Vireo!

Tug and the Tooth!

Tug & The Tooth is a colorful story about a little girl named Liza who discovers she has a loose tooth! Liza meets Tug, a magical tooth, who becomes her guide through this wiggly time. Together they embark on a great adventure where she learns to handle the fear and excitement of losing her first tooth. To tell this story, we first worked hand-in-hand with the author to conceptualize and illustrate Tug and Liza. The author then had plush protoypes of Tug created locally. Once approved, we moved into producing a hand-drawn, complementary aesthetic for the background illustrations. When the book was complete, Replace developed a packaging solution that would tie the whole brand together.

Smash Burger Case Study!

Get Smashed! I am SOOOO dang proud to show off the work we did this year for Smash Burger. SB is a bit of hero of mine. Honestly great burgers with honest real ingredients. The SB brand has deep roots in Minneapolis. They are a great Replacement for the Status Quo in the Big Burger world. All the design & illustration work is inspired by classic American Neon, Cattle Branding, and even Ancient Hieroglyphs. A multi-faceted design celebration of The New Way to Burger. Enjoy!!!

Erik Brust on Venture Superbly!

Venture SuperflyI love this! My former biz partner and close friend John Benzick just did a great interview with Erik Brust: Also buddy of mine, client, and founder of Jonny Pops: The best frozen treat on the planet earth. I totally forgot this fun fact- both Erik and John have stayed over at my Mother-in-laws place in the OC while we were all on the road for different projects and events. In fact ONLY John, Erik, and 2 other Jonny Pops dudes have done the road time sleeping on the 1970’s era twin beds at Ma Wilson’s OC home while we all plotted to change the world: successfully it turned out. They would be in an elite group of the OC road warriors. Both John and Erik have dined on In-and-Out Burger with Ma Wilson in the Oc backyard. Enjoy!
