SAWYER YARDS

In 2015 Jon Deal, of the Deal Company, asked me to help create a community of artists from a collection of loosely related art studio buildings in Houston's historic First Ward. Sawyer Yards was the result. Sandwiched between two very active train tracks, this former rail yard is now home to one of the largest creative communities in the country and features an active schedule of special events, art exhibitions, and maker markets.

CONCEPT TO PRODUCTION

Since 2015, I have rebranded or branded Spring Street​, Silver Street, The Silos at Sawyer Yards and Summer Street Studios.

In addition to designing and overseeing fabrication of custom outdoor signs for Spring Street and The Silos, last year I developed a campus wayfinding proposal that's slowly being implemented. With so many stakeholders involved, decisions can take time and things feel like they're moving slowly, but the amount of progress since 2015 is remarkable.
