Bring back nature.

Project by Chris Vogel Design, 2008

A dreary factory is transformed into a living natural environment through changes in color and form. The idea behind this piece was to communicate environmental awareness to a global audience. Not using words was therefore extremely important to me. I was excited to find out it made the shortlist for the 2008 Green Earth design competition organized by Design Boom.

Lensflares and fog...

In 2006, I went through an intense digital composite phase. I spent a lot of time photographing buildings and landscapes with the sole purpose of clipping and reassembling them into digital matte paintings. It was a great exercise to practice fundamentals such as lighting and values.

Rappelling down a building.

Project by Dotvita, 2013

The City Skyline Challenge is the annual fundraiser organized by Outward Bound California. The challenge consists of rappelling down a 23-story building. We donated our services to support the cause and designed the event logo. The goal was to create a showpiece that would communicate all by itself without having to rely on supporting art direction.

Targeted smells.

Project by Chris Vogel Design, 2009

Exploring dynamic identities has been a passion of mine for quite some time. The goal behind this exercise was to differentiate target categories while simultaneously referring back to a consolidated umbrella brand. A series of logos was developed – each in a different font. At a distance, the logos create a silhouette of an elephant. Each logo is accompanied by a custom pattern and color palette to strengthen the tie to its category.

My first love.

Project by Chris Vogel, 2005 - 2015

Identity design has always been one of my favorites. Helping shape the appearance of a business at its core is incredibly rewarding. To me a logo isn't everything, but as the brand ambassador, it is a company's main anchor.
