We've done cause marketing and "creative consulting" for Cabot, Solid Threads, Music Dojo, Benito's Hot Sauce and others; and we also work with college students and local non-profits to improve charities' marketing and visibility. Please contact us to discuss your goals.
Logos and slogans capture a concept or feeling quickly and concisely. Here and here are a few of the logos and slogans Splice Cream devised.

Please contact us if you're interested in "Slogos".
