As far as scrappy upstarts come, Anonymous LA might take the cake. With $50 and a box of quirky shoelaces for sale on the Venice boardwalk in '85, they swiftly became a neighborhood hit, simultaneously solidifying their style: intelligent goods at a friendly price.
Today, they remain one of the last brick & mortar boutiques independently-owned in Los Angeles. After over 30 years in business, I came along to help give their brand and website a simple, sophisticated update.

POP Media Holdings
This lovely group of people take money and invest it in bridging Asian Pop Culture with the rest of the world. They put it better than we do: "Our job at POP is like a DJ - we curate, we remix, we create, we entertain and we bring people together." See? Pretty great. We worked together to givePop Media Holdings a bit of a facelift. For culture.
TOKYOPOP is a global multi-media publishing company that established the market for manga in North America, introducing the term to the English language in the process. Over its history, TOKYOPOP has published thousands of books and led the way in e-commerce and user-generated content, but the onset of the digital age brought major changes to the publishing workflow and the company needed to reconfigure their business if they wanted to continue expand their brand. I came in during the middle of TOKYOPOP's exciting transition to help restructure their online image.
