logo design and branding for russo's roots

Russo's Roots is a first generation vegetable farm nestled in the hills of eastern Connecticut. Farmers James Russo and Libby Tarleton are focused on farming their land using organic methods, combining ecological sensitivity with techniques in permaculture  to create an agro-ecological system rather than just an agricultural one.

Below, their primary logo to be used for signage, packaging and more:

We also developed a secondary logo that they had liked from the original concepts presented and wanted to somehow incorporate as part of their story. This logo will be used as a complimentary design on apparel and some packaging. It stays consistant with the brand using the same hand drawn inspired font, style and color palette.

a lot of love went into the making of the wedding suite for shawna and joseph who were recently married at saltwater farm vineyard in stonington, ct.

i love the fall palette and special touches like their custom tag and belly band. the two color letterpress was printed on cranes 220lb double thick cover making it seem like you were opening up a present. remember jordan of noteworthy and blue? her beautiful calligraphy is featured on both the response and outer envelopes. the white hand lettering on the orange gives it a great pop.

congrats again to shawna and joseph, it was so much fun working with you guys and i loved seeing you on your special day. thanks for letting me share!

pura vida, k
