Just wrapped up work on Gaia Property Group’s new logo and we couldn’t be happier!
Gaia Property Group is a high design, and fully green, building and development company. This fledgling company seeks to make the biggest impacts, with the smallest footprints. It’s a cause that we, at TINbox, are more than honored to support.
When developing the logo for Gaia, we were asked asked to express the following:
– a clean/modern logo, that didn’t feel too clinical
– something that expressed nature
– the use of an ensō
A few brainstorms later, we decided that the concept of earth & sea would properly represent the elements that Gaia strives to ultimately protect. Delving deeper into that idea, we incorporated the owner’s deep appreciation for water and surfing. A natural fit, for both, is the beautiful ocean wave. And so, our first element was born!
Moving along that path, we looked at how valuable water is to life (thanks Cosmos, for the late night inspirations!) and, in particular, what it’s life infusing qualities have grown…
…like a plant…
a majestic plant…
…like a tree!
And thus, our elements were born, from which the Gail’s logo could be created:
– an ensō
– a wave
– a tree
Having all the pieces laid out on the table, all that was left to do was assemble the puzzle. It was quite fascinating, actually, how the entire process came together quite organically. By looking at all of the pieces, you could “form” the following mantra:
the circle of life is one of enlightenment, respect and admiration for the gifts that sustain it
To express that idea, we merged all of the images together, with color and form merging at key points. What we ended up with was quite satisfying, especially with the knowledge that we were lending our efforts to help support a company with a great goal in mind 🙂
Thanks to Chuck and the rest of GPG for the opportunity!
Some very long days have been had, this past few months. One of our biggest tasks, this year, was to update the site as much as possible, especially in the realm of the portfolio. We’ve been blessed to be in a surge of client work and can’t wait to post all of the fantastic projects that we’ve worked on in 2013 and 2014. Stay tuned!
Sorry about the mess, everyone. In honor of our 10th birthday, we’re going to give ourselves a treat: a facelift! This portion of the site will be up and running soon, promise!
Santa Rosa’s newest brewing sensation, Blue Beagle Coffee, has tapped us to design and market their grand opening! In addition to designing their site and social media, we’re also handling all of their print and marketing. First wave of marketing is in the books: business cards, loyalty cards and preliminary mass distro. Take a look in the portfolio =)
Keep in touch with their developments here
Thanks for being wonderful, Blue Beagle! Good luck on your grand opening!
TINbox Solutions would like to welcome brand-new coffee shop, Blue Beagle Coffee, to the family!

They have tapped TINbox to design all of their marketing material, including their website. We are thankful and grateful!
Please feel free to check out their splash page here and connect to their Facebook and Twitter. Santa Rosa, be ready to get your fix!
