High vibrational products. High vibrational life.

 

The founders of Sakred and Deux North connected in early 2018 and set out to create a series of uniquely different yet equally impactful products for those seeking a high vibrational way of being – all under the umbrella identity, Sakred.

The founders of Golf Crest Tours approached Deux North to create a new identity for their first luxury golf venture. Skilled golfers themselves and well-versed in the business of luxury travel, they had a clear vision of what they wanted.

Golf Crest Tours provides a bespoke experience with your every need taken care of. From your tee time to your lunch reservations, your bookings to your translators, they’ve thought of everything.

They aim to be the best premium operation in the luxury golf space with a friendly yet exclusive identity system that places them firmly above their competition.

While most know Spain and Scotland to be the golfing meccas of the world, Golf Crest Tours is breaking new ground in France, an undiscovered golfing gem.

The founders of Il Rimedio approached Deux North Studios to create the identity for a simple product with massive goals: eliminate the stigma of using hemp as a medicinal factor, empower women of all walks of life, and provide a holistic product to combat all types of stressors and PMS symptoms.

In order to elevate the conversation around hemp use

 

and women’s wellness, we first needed to elevate the aesthetic away from that of typical cannabis and PMS-related products. We sought to create a sleek and modern feel without falling into the “millennial” branding rut, pink-washing, or being aggressively feminine. We want women as well as men to feel not only comfortable but proud to purchase this product for themselves or the much deserving ladies in their lives.

What we achieved is an identity that is both accessible yet aspirational, professional yet friendly, authoritative yet humble.

Each detail and supporting graphic is intentional and directed at a consumer who cares for their health, the health of others, the beauty of their space, and the availability and legitimacy of alternate medications.

New business owner, Jay Ponciano, contacted the team at Watson Creative to help bring his new cannabis business, Delta Mantra, to life. We were tasked with creating his new brand identity, strategy, responsive website, marketing, packaging, and printed collateral.

The cannabis industry is booming here in Portland, and Jay intends to be a major contender.

The city – and now much of the nation – is flooded with cannabis related designs and new dispensaries. In order to set Delta Mantra apart from the competition, we created an identity, collateral, and a digital presence that uses a bright color scheme in a more elegant, minimalist way than typical, psychedelic executions.

DIGITAL

For the e-commerce site, the brand colors were used sparingly and intentionally to identify strains and call attention to messaging. The site itself is fully responsive and comprised of custom wireframes, elegant photography shot in-house, and subtle parallax effects. 

PRINT

We created a full suite of printed materials and products including business cards, brochures, labels, bags, and packaging designs. We chose matte materials across the board with pops of clear foil to accentuate colors and create a luxurious, yet accessible feel.

The founder of YWorkshops reached out to me to rebrand their new business. She already had a signature that communicated, in part, her desired aesthetic, but it fell short of her vision for a scalable, potentially global presence. YWorkshops is a speaker and mentorship series helping local Portland

 

entrepreneurs learn how to build and grow their businesses, identify what success looks like and how to achieve it, and strengthen their network. This is achieved through curated events and local meet-ups at which accomplished people from around the country and all walks of life share their skills and stories.

In order to create an identity that is inclusive, scalable, inviting, and energetic, rich blue hues with supporting pastels were used to incite feeling of trust, curiosity, and the youthful mindset that comes with being a lifelong learner. The palette is meant to address all sexes, 20 and older.

The modular and dynamic construction of the logo lends itself to multiple configurations that can be customized to fit a wide range of applications, target demographics, and occasions. The elements of the logo were intended to represent the building-block nature of learning and discovery, a concept we're all familiar will that transcends cultural divides. 

 

Kaleidoscope Fighting Lupus, formerly known as Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus, approached Deux North for a complete rebrand and print/digital overhaul. As the company matured and was acquired by new management, they felt the need for a new, more professional look.

 

Lupus is a widespread and chronic autoimmune disease and is known as a kaleidoscope disease due to the many combinations of afflictions that may be present in each individual. It is also commonly accompanied by a facial rash in the shape of a butterfly. With this knowledge, we created a kaleidoscope-like mark out of butterflies.
