Lifestream Watersystems

Even though I have been designing for seven years, not once had I tinkered with the logo or identity of my parents company, Lifestream Watersystems. They work in one of the more noble and pertinent industries out there, reverse osmosis equipment engineering and production, or, more simply put, machines that turn saltwater into drinking water. This equipment becomes ever more important to embrace as our increasingly populated and thirsty world swallows up valuable freshwater reserves, endangering alpine and lake shore habitats.

I stayed within the shape of the droplet they had been using for years, and elaborated and modified the interior until we reached an appealing solution.

Los Angeles based My Fashion Database company has been quietly building an impressively massive, motion adorned and graphically razor sharp, online fashion directory. Following in the footsteps of an internet giant,, which pioneered the concept for the film industry, MYFDB sets itself apart with a honed and beautiful website that is going to put it's older, movie industry comparable to shame. It is also filling a vacant online networking site niche, and those are hard to find these days. The site is finally ready for full fledged traffic, and has been getting tons of media chatter at places like the Wall Street Journal.

My cousin's BF is calling the shots over there, and was syked enough to ask me for a screen captured 'sizzle reel' of some of the features of the site. It finally is on the front page, and MYFDB is go for lift off.
