As many of you know, I had a wonderful experience working at Nickelfish, and left it for my new home in North Carolina a few months ago. While cleaning out old project folders on my computer I uncovered a few internal projects that never quite made the portfolio...
The National Identity & Publication Protection Service is an internal project designed to poke fun at government agencies / design firms that tend to defend the status quo. This was only one part of a larger ad campaign, but the mark we invented was pretty fun.
Shortly before I left, Nickelfish split their staff into three production teams, each with some sort of hilarious name. Our team name was Bombadil Battalion, after the famed Tom Bombadil of The Fellowship of the ring. A team logo was also charged, and I included the feathered cap, beer stein, and music note as symbols of our patron saint.
Blowing Minds Since 2002
This last project was simply a t-shirt design we developed for our own team. Internal stuff like this is usually a ton of fun, and every once and a while you have to work on something that distracts from the day-to-day.
