FIRST is a high-end water brand. The approach was to go against the tide of consumer water. No images of water, mountains, or deer. Blue? Nah. Green, maybe? Nope. Intrigue and mystique were the name of the game, and the leading player was a symbol called the monolith. The monolith embodies the essence of the FIRST ID: simple and stoic. Exactly what it needs to be, nothing more or less

Balabeam is my bala-baby. This is a personal project that was born out of grievance. Long story short, I purchased a balance beam for one of my tiny humans, and it was garbage. So, I decided to make my own.

Georgia, and the nation as a whole, has incredibly limited support systems available for parents and their children living with autism. The team at Elevation pushed to rectify this gap in care. With the founding of this new venture, a brand that spoke and assured not only the parents but also the children was a must. It was a pleasure to work with the team. The opportunity to create a truly impactful, life-buoying service is rare.
