The Mountain Monorail project is a proposed solution to a high-speed, mass transit system along the I-70 corridor, which winds through the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The design concept for the identity utilizes qualities that reflect the pristine, dynamic, and unique nature of the mountain environment. Other suggestive elements in the identity help illustrate the idea of the monorail: the abstract shape of the monorail in the logo, the dynamic curved shapes that emphasize how the monorail wraps around its guideway beam, and the oblique type implying speed.
This memorial is meant to capture a moment from the morning of September 11, a day that stands strongly in everyone's mind. The beginning of the memorial, essentially "ground zero," was designed so visitors walk through a path of destruction. Obstacles in their way will be life-size sculptures of people running from the towers and helping others, demolished vehicles, fire trucks, and other emergency vehicles. There will also be briefcases, cell phones, facemasks, and paper scattered on the ground.

Sushi Taira is a restaurant that serves authentic Japanese food within an atmosphere ranging from casual to high class, as well as from western style tables to private tatami rooms in a more traditional Japanese seating format. In order to attract a wide range of different people, the mark had to be elegant enough to attract a high-class clientele, yet modern enough to better familiarize people with sushi. Research shows that not many sushi restaurants have their own logo. Even if they do, the logo tends toward a generic fish.
