The Final Piece of the Clever Climbers Puzzle

Well, we didn’t actually design a puzzle, but we did finish designing the last segment of the Little Tikes Commercial Clever Climbers Curriculum Kit, completing our creative quota (say that five times fast). For more information about alliteration, consult your Clever Climbers Curriculum Kit. For more information about the project, consult our portfolio.

Only 336 new Pantone colors. Sigh.

pantone-plus-series-336-new-colors

Pantone® has released 336 new colors into its Pantone Matching System Plus Series, bringing the series total to 1,677 colors. Anda had big plans to work 337 new colors into a design project, but we just couldn’t complete our vision without that extra special color. Back to the drawing board.

Even without that extra special 337th color, we can still appreciate the new additions. The colors expand the book’s broad range of saturation, including pastels, neutrals, deep hues and brights. Subtle differences in color can make big differences in design, so we welcome the new color options.

2011 FFANY New York Shoe Expo: Dynasty Footwear Showrooms

Anda just returned from a great trip to NYC. Dynasty Footwear was showing during the FFANY Shoe Show last week (Nov. 29 – Dec. 1), so we jumped at the opportunity to visit with our cool and creative friends at Dynasty and to see the results of our latest collaboration: Makalu™ California.

We were tasked with creating a Southern California-influenced branding design for the Women’s, Girl’s and Men’s Makalu California shoe lines. This included logos, packaging and brand books. In addition, we designed fixtures for displaying the shoes in their showrooms.

The Dynasty Footwear showrooms looked fantastic! We were happy to see the project’s final pieces come to fruition, and to see exactly how well our graphic designs worked with Dynasty’s innovative and stylish shoe designs. Now that we have seen the actual space for this event, watch out for next year! Well, unless they change venues without telling us.

Thanks again, Dynasty!

One small step for man, one giant leap for Anda-kind

pex_logos_final_green

Last year Anda Creative teamed up with Los Angeles-based footwear company Dynasty Footwear, Ltd. to create a brand identity system for a new shoe called PEX. The synthetic EVA material used for the shoes creates a durable yet comfortable product, while the holes provide extra ventilation (less stink) and style (more cool).

Anda created a logo inspired by the shoe’s unique ventilation holes. The logo can be used in its entirety as well as a product-crossing, stand-alone P. In addition to the identity system, we also created presentation graphics, a brand/usage book, store displays, shoe boxes, and product hang-tags.

Now, after several months of design and production, PEX have hit the shelves and are ready to hit the streets on your feets. Find PEX in area shoe stores or purchase online: Bealls

“Here’s my card. My six cards.”

ANDA_BusinessCards_GroupLR
Anda Creative updated its brand with a new logo and series of logo treatments late last fall. The first project to implement our new look was a set of business cards. Besides being able to find the cards on our parents’ refrigerators, they’re also featured on a handful of business card design websites.  Check it out:

Happy Gumdrop Day!

Mark your calendars! February 15 is not just the day after Valentine’s day, nor is it just the day Anda Creative is filing its taxes. It’s National Gumdrop Day. Many of you may have received an announcement in the mail, but if not, don’t worry. It simply means you’re not on our mailing list. Send us your contact information so you don’t miss out on big events such as National Gumdrop Day (and if you hurry, we can mail you a GD Day card to help celebrate…and make your own GD’s). All the cool kids are doing it!
