Eko Wave LLC is a company started by two pals and myself to provide value to niche consumers through well-thought-out applications.

When designing the logo I wanted something that played off of the word wave found in our name, while keeping with a color palette we established in Eko’s previous life.

Taking things a step further I created a basic style tile1 document that helped me brainstorm how color, typography, and imagery fit and sell the concept to my partners. It would also serve as blueprint for me to design the site in browser — making for a more enjoyable and loose experience instead of being tied to a .PSD mockup I needed to CSSify2 exactly.
