Coa Portfolio

  1. 1. Hello, thanks for your interest. Coa thrives on the curiosity of new challenges and we believe design should be an enjoyable and collaborative process. We don’t pretend to have magical powers or arty ruminations that separate us from the people we work for. That’s not to say that creating a great design doesn’t require a bit of art and magic, but it generates from the formation of a receptive and open partnership with our clients. Following are some selections of our recent work, please visit our website for our complete portfolio and up-to-date news. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you. coa / A design CompAny Contact: chris ritchie 646 734 2377
  2. 2. Moby Last Night album design We worked with moby to art direct and design all of the materials for his latest studio album, Last Night. The album gives a soundtrack to the attitude and feeling of a long night out in new york City and the design of the album is inspired by all of the glamour, sex, energy and illusion that a night can come with. Both the Cd and the vinyl packaging revealed a large poster image on the interior, and our work included all designs for singles and advertising. photography by dale may. coa / A design CompAny Contact: chris ritchie 646 734 2377
  3. 3. Seed magazine, hiV/aiDs Gatefold Seed wanted to create a four-page infographic illustrating the current state of the HiV/Aids pandemic 25 years after the dis- ease’s discovery. Working with the editorial staff on what and how information should be shown, we developed a series of charts and graphics chronicling the science of the virus (its life-span, how it grows), as well as it’s impact on different areas of the world and society. Created in collaboration with Seed art director Adam Billyeald. coa / A design CompAny Contact: chris ritchie 646 734 2377
  4. 4. hoPe survey Volunteer booklet every year, the new york City department of Homeless services conducts a survey of the city’s homeless. Vol- unteers cover all five boroughs in one single night using detailed intructions on how to avoid double counting and how to offer outreach to homeless individuals. We were asked to create a compact booklet that would be an easy-to-use training guide for those volunteers. Clarity was essential to the design so that all of the instructions could be given in a short time and so that volunteers could easily refer back to specific details.

  5. 5. olana restaurant olana is a restaurant in new york City named after the 19th-century upstate new york estate built by painter Frederic Church of the same name, which is now a museum and historic site. The concept of the restaurant includes changing the menu seasonally and the dining room of the restaurant reflects the natural colors and textures of the region. We were asked to portray the tactility and richness of texture of the restaurant with the website and promotional materials to allow visitors to see the various experiences available in the space. We directed photography that captured the different aspects of the rooms and created a simple layout for the site that complimented the restaurant’s vision. photography by david prince. coa / A design CompAny Contact: chris ritchie 646 734 2377
  6. 6. Upwell Furniture and product design studio Upwell wanted a showcase site for their portfolio that was easy to navigate, subtle and elegant. We provided them with a Flash website that contained the modern look of the products yet did not overshadow them with superfluous features that would have distracted from the greatness of the work.
