I was very fortunate to get an awesome design firm to present in class. I visited Moxie Sozo over our AIGA spring break trip, and I fell in love. This firm has some really amazing people working for it, including some of our very own. After further ado, I would like to present you with Moxie Sozo...

This info-graphic reveals the way in which they work. The color fields are a good indicator of how they narrow down their ideas and process to one final solution. They develop original and creative solutions that can involve an ad campaign, re-designed marketing collateral, a new website, or even a company re-branding. Regardless of the job, their process is the same.
Eat Pastry is a company that came to Moxie Sozo in hopes for a look that was different from all of the other eco-friendly products out there. Moxie took it too an art deco, hand illustrated approach.
Moxie Sozo also specializes in helping starter businesses get off their feet with new websites. Some of the companies do sometimes not succeed, but some flourish. This one, unfortunately didn't have a sufficient enough budget to stay in business. Non the less Moxie gave them an awesome site.
The Hurricane Project was done in response to Hurricane Katrina, and was initiated by Moxie Sozo. It goes to show how involved and self-less they are. It is a great idea that was executed beautifully, and was successful.
The Haiti Poster Project is also a response to a world changing disaster, the earthquake in Haiti. The idea is pretty much the same as the Hurricane Project. World-renown designers create posters for Haiti and sell them. All of the money earned goes to the Red Cross, and directly to Haiti.
