project peek: the garden nannies

The Garden Nannies is the brainchild of sassy and smart landscape architect Janson Ardinger. Janson wanted to stand out in the sea of landscape management companies in the DC area who were, quite frankly, a little bit boring. Inspired by the housewives of the '50s, she came up with the concept of apron clad, pruner wielding ladies who can tend garden. In turn, I designed a bold and fun, vintage-inspired identity and website. The brand includes retro type, colorful icons, and happy patterns. 


I am available for branding services. If you need help with business naming, logo and website design, or consulting, please get in touch. I'd love to hear from you.
