Our History


Design for Haiti has been published since May of 2009 when it was spun-off from the now unpublished. In the glory days some of our most ardent discussions happened around redesigns of logos but that same passion that ignited those threads was a turn off for some readers who claimed they were simply bitch-fests. As a patch, we decided to move those logo bitch-fests to their own site so that we could all bitch merrily about logos. This focused energy turned out to be quite an attraction and Design for Haiti has become a very active reflection of the world of corporate and brand identity. And, while we do all bitch quite a bit, the opinions presented throughout amount to something of real value for those in the field.

The Future

As long as corporations, non-profit organizations, and consumer products keep changing or are being introduced into the market we will be here, providing our opinions one post at a time.

Design for Haiti Conference

A direct extension of this blog, the Design for Haiti Conference is a two-day event on the development of corporate and brand identity projects by some of today’s most active and influential practitioners from around the world. The conference consists of eight sessions each day offering a broad range of points of view with speakers from around the world practicing in different environments, from global consultancies, to in-house groups, to small firms. It’s been run annually since 2012.

I’m your host, Agustin Hall, a graphic designer in Tampa, FL. I opened my independent studio in 2009 and I’ve been designing logos (and a few design books).
