2016 TVC Kit





















This year marks a big sponsorship and a new design/logo for Team Velocause.  These will once again be printed by Castelli.   http://velocause.org/

Pete's Garage Logo





















Pete's Garage in Green Bay, WI was looking for a new logo.  The owner's truck made a perfect icon to use for the logo representing the shop.  https://www.facebook.com/tcctradingpost/

Retail Benches













I love using reclaimed materials whenever possible.  There is true beauty in materials that stand the test of time and show their life in a beautiful patina.  These are 4 reclaimed Elm rough sawn benches I made for a client using them in a retail (shoe) store.  The bases are welded steal legs with plastic caps.

Lab Midwest had an outdated logo and wanted a new one incorporating some of the elements from the original.  I recreated the plumb line and used that element to update the overall look for their new company logo.  http://labmidwest.com/

Velocause Van Wrap
















The new Velocase van gets a face lift with some custom vinyl graphics.  These graphics were created at 1/20th scale so they can be scaled up, printed and applied.  http://velocause.org/

Hodous Save the Dates & Wedding Invites

 


Mike & Erin's Save the Date & Wedding Invite.  The Save the Date photo is a beautiful shot of the proposal.  The original was out of focus so I refocused it in Photoshop by combining multiple layers and blending them to refocus it

Paukner Wedding Invites






















The Paukner invites for Jessica & Steve turned out great.  The concept was a tear-off system where there were multiple versions sent out to wedding guests.  You then could tear off the response card and wedding info.  Jess & Steve had a beautiful barn wedding in the country. 

Copeland Wedding Invites


















This was such a fun project to work on with Preston & Stephanie.  These are wedding invites that fold into themselves to ship out, no envelopes necessary.  They also used a wedding website to cut down on response cards & wedding info details. 

A Novel Idea Logo and Business Cards





















Andrea creates beautiful folded book art- I designed a logo and identity to go along with her products.  These are the bookmark business cards she will be using.

Custom Breakfast Nook




I must like large pieces of furniture that are just barely manageable with 1 person.   This was a fun project for a family in our neighborhood.  Custom breakfast nook- bench, table and bench.  The benches tops open up to allow a ton of room for storage.  The bench slides in under the table making a smaller kitchen more manageable while allowing more than enough room for the whole family to eat together.   Built with Oak and birch plywood, painted with Benjamin Moore Aura paint which is fantastic for cleaning. 

Custom Adjustable Coffee Table

  


This project posed quite a few design challenges.  My customer in New York wanted a solid Maple coffee table for a keyboard and misc items that could adjust 6"-8" in height yet remain solid.  I came up with adjustable feet that I think met the challenge of Form and Function keeping a mid-century and clean aesthetic. The "feet" were on a pinned hinge system that allow them to rotate down and lock in to raise the while coffee table up.  I added in some brushed hardware and bits of Cherry wood to accentuate the Maple to finish it all off. 

Wedding & Memorial Benches






















A friend of mine wanted a custom wedding bench for her wedding.  After making the initial one I loved the idea of having a unique way for guests to sign something aside from a book.  After wood-burning the top with the info, guests can sign this and it's a great keepsake for many years to come.  These are built out of cedar, usually about 4' in length.  Check them out here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/221611688/cedar-wedding-bench-custom-made-and?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=wedding%20bench&ref=sr_gallery_3

Mudroom Locker Build





















One of my larger builds to date.  This was a custom built locker for a mudroom in a newly built home.  All solid wood construction with a wainscoting backer.  The galvanized handles and coat hooks were all painted a similar grade of gray as the galvanized parts.  Solid Oak top stained to match the floors in the other rooms.

Custom Wedding Bench






















Still populating more items to my Etsy store.  This was a handmade cedar bench for a wedding.  Guests will sign the top and then will be sealed in to keep forever.  I also wood-burned in the couples wedding date and a large heart.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/HardrathDesign

Extreme Endurance Logo and Jersey's






















I developed the logo, identity and jersey's for the 2015 Extreme Endurance Team based out of Milwaukee, WI.
