Sifter letterpress business cards 1

I recently completed the Sifter logo design, and was truly excited, and chuffed, to see how the letterpress printed business cards ended up.

I really am quite proud of how the Sifter logo turned out, but more pleased that Garret's vision for the card design came to fruition. Garret was super intent on going as minimal as possible with the card design, and I really think it turned out brilliantly. The mono version of the Sifter logo looks particularly striking with the letterpress adding the finishing touch.

Garret has written up a neat little post, on the background of these cards, over on the Sifter blog: Practicing Craft via Cards

Dark Knight 'Unofficial' Version of Sifter Icon

Playing around with the Sifter app logo this afternoon, and ended up with this righteously moody Dark Knight styled mono version.

Trying to get my client to make this the official Sifter brand logo.


Continuing from the Sifter logo and iPhone web application icon I have just about wrapped up the web application icon design for the Macintosh dock.

We had a few options to consider in terms of overall "polish" which saw me putting out a test-strip on Twitter and Google+ asking for what option people preferred. You can see the test strip below.

We saw a majority response for #3 which is the one the client ultimately opted for. Polling can work.

Sifter is work-in-progress with the end in sight.
