I hired Alphabet Arm to design packaging for a new beverage product. I had been impressed with their work on a colleague’s food company packaging. When I met the team and described our needs, I was impressed with Alphabet Arm’s ability to understand and focus the needs of the project. We were not only designing a product, but naming it as well. Because it had been years since I had employed an outside design firm (I have done much design in-house), I still needed convincing that a keen level of conceptual understanding would translate into strong design. I was also concerned that if I did not like what I originally saw, that we would struggle to find a solution that we both loved. My experience with Alphabet Arm ended up being nothing short of fantastic. Aaron and the group worked tirelessly (with me) to develop a naming strategy and then to design what is now brilliant packaging. The process was iterative, with several collaborative, thoughtful phases of evolution. Alphabet Arm’s attention to detail is unmatched. I was impressed with their knowledge and their design conviction. The team has a willingness to discuss options and present choices, but stood firm on certain design elements or solutions; this conviction displayed to me the knowledge and sophistication that I had been looking for in my search for a talented design group. Alphabet Arm is a hands-on, highly talented design firm that does outstanding work. They are also an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Alphabet Arm is a pleasure to work with. And I should know – we’ve partnered with them on hundreds of design projects for a wide variety of clients, including many Fortune 500 companies. They are creative, attentive, flexible and professional. And, most importantly, they are passionate about good design.

BzzAgent, Inc / Kate Grant

Alphabet Arm was hired to design a logo for our independent cinema in Providence, Rhode Island. The theater opened in 1976 and is considered a local institution. It is deeply embedded into the cultural fabric of the city. Alphabet Arm’s design challenge was two-fold: how do you retain the spirit of the place while also making an identity new? They succeeded by creating a logo that subtly speaks to the past by using a unique and specific color palette and an evocative form. Hire these guys immediately. They know what they are doing!

This might sound like a stretch, but I sincerely believe the logo helped attract a prominent investor to our business. She’s an extremely famous brand builder herself and she recognized the genius in the logo execution; it was part of a number of factors that made her step out of a venture capital forum audience where I was presenting and say, “I want to back this business.” And, since Alphabet Arm brand work was the first initiative of our start-up, it helped people to visualize a business that only lived in my mind for several months. The logo combines several qualities of our business: we’re real people with passion, humor, and sincerity for our mission of finding great products and telling their true stories. I see all of that in the logo.

The Dr. TATTOFF logo is a core piece of our branding. The specific design of the original Dr. TATTOFF logo, which was created by Alphabet Arm Design, helped launch an active brand and establish ourselves as the leaders in the laser tattoo removal industry.

Dr. Tattoff / Ian Kirby

Everyday at least one customer comments on our logo and it’s always a great conversation opener to tell them how it came about and suddenly I have the platform to describe the heart and soul of The Wine Bottega and develop a strong personal relationship. The creativity of the logo sets us apart from other wine stores and let’s people know from the moment they see it that this is not your typical shop. We have noticed a large increase in foot traffic since we emblazoned the logo across our windows. As we are located in a tourist area, we have always had people stop and peek in the window, but now they are coming inside and making a purchase. The incredible crew at Alphabet Arm, (who are great to work with), took the time to understand what it was that I wanted to achieve and the result is a logo that is the foundation for all of our continued branding efforts. The logo is a touchstone that we can refer to when we need to make sure the message is staying on track while allowing us to have fun and be creative.
