Neyborly is a venture-backed startup that provides affordable gathering space that anyone can rent by the hour, day, or month. It's a technology-enabled real estate company trying to find a solution to the rampant vacancy of ground-floor commercial space.
Even before I was full-time on the team, I was freelancing for Neyborly working on their wordmark and logo. Over my 3 years there I was fortunate enough to see this brand shown to 20,000+ people a month dotted across ground-floor venues along the West Coast.
Here it is in black & white and in San Francisco.
As Neyborly expanded away from the first location in Berkeley California it became more and more important to create beautiful and non-intrusive brand activations. These took the form of large murals, exterior and interior signage, and dozens of business cards and letter heads in between.
I wore a baker's dozen of design hats while at Neyborly. Most notably I was the steward of our interior and graphic design styles. I made paintings, built an interior style guide, painted and designed murals (like the above door mural), and much much more. I've collected a handful of the graphic design elements I was responsible for as the Head of Design.
My design with Neyborly is nearly as multi-media as you can get. From my recent leadership on the digital product design to my very first sketches of the logo, I loved every bit of it.
If you're looking for my UX / UI work with our product team - take a look here.
If you'd like to dig deeper into my process, I've built a small instagram where my sketches, ideas, and scratch documents end up for y'all.
