Lach Makes

May 2017

Stencil logo design for Lachlan Tobiason, a handmade knife maker based in the Berkshires. Lach requested that created a logotype around the idea of a "lock", a homonym for his nickname.

I interpreted this and created a mark based on his name spelled out in Braille—a tactile system of language that unlocks communication for a set of people.

I also got to co-design a carbon steel knife that with a custom-fitted burled ironwood handle.
