in practice

we had some ideas of our own but just couldn’t pry the hand saw from drew neisser’s - renegade’s ceo’s - hard grip. so we waved a white flag and let the negotiations begin. we traded in the old trusty saw for a brand new, razor sharp one - visible in the logo above.  we left nothing else unearthed: derived from the logo’s typography, renegade got a custom typeface, stationery - complete with mailing labels, letter head, business and note cards -, a web site and brochure. after the job was done renegade painted a wall and installed metal logo plaques in chelsea market too.  we are glad to report that nobody ever got seriously injured in the making of the new renegade. it could be because sharp cutting tools are less prone to hurt people accidentally than dull ones.


renegade is still getting compliments for the site, four years after the fact. they just recently asked us to think about what we wanted to do for a re-design.  digital or not. we think design needs to last, otherwise it’s simply a bad business decision.
