Arizona Coyote's Kachina Conference Room Environmental Design

Positive brand reinforcement invites employees to be a part of something bigger. To be a part of the team. For the Arizona Coyotes, the experience off the ice is just as essential as game day. The brief was simple. Using environmental design, elevate the game of their hockey offices. Transform the space into an arena where they feel empowered to strategize, make executive decisions and celebrate wins as a team. To begin, we
drafted a few conceptual plays of our own. The first blended the desert landscape with the idea that hockey belongs in Arizona. The second drew inspiration from the principal elements of hockey to echo the energy of the big game. Incorporating real hockey gear constructs a sense of preparedness and encourages the team's ambitious spirit.

HTA has built strong relationships with investors and tenants through their full-service operating platform. We were tasked with building an equally strong digital platform. The new design values accessibility, simplicity and a fresh approach to real-estate investing. In collaboration with S&P Global, we redesigned the Investor Relations portal. The result is a well-organized, easy to use library of financials. An intuitive
experience gives investors confidence in HTA and the future growth of the portfolio

Spahn Business Collateral

For many people, retirement planning is another task on a long list of to-dos. Other financial companies either over-simplify their process or over-complicate it. Kyle Spahn built a more transparent process with customized financial plans and long-term client relationships. By positioning retirement as an opportunity, we showcased the ultimate goal clients know is the target, with the understanding that their individual needs will
be met. A logo that is bold and modern differentiates Spahn Wealth from the traditional brands found in the financial services industry. The mark emerged as an excellent representation of the mathematical side of the retirement process. The emphasized ampersand represents relationships; the relationship of wealth and retirement, as well as the relationship between Spahn and their clients. The completed brand balances contemporary processes and nostalgia. It recognizes the importance of the past while welcoming the experiences of the future.
