About Us

Boy Blue & Co. designs and builds unique, idiosyncratic brand identities and web presences for creative professionals, small businesses, and nonprofits.

We view our role broadly, collaborating with clients to showcase their talents and develop their madcap schemes into real-world enterprises. We provide logos and branding, whip up illustrations, spruce up photographs, and help you negotiate obstacles from print shops to social media. (We’ve even been known to contribute to blogs we’ve built.) We’ve been at this a while, and nothing makes us happier than deploying our expertise in the service of people’s dreams.

Boy Blue was founded by Kenan Rubenstein, an artist and designer in Brooklyn, back in the dark ages of web design (circa 2003). As a creative professional, small business owner, non-profit board member, and ex-patriot from the age of analogue, he has a whole bunch of first-hand experience with the thrills and challenges of committing to a project you believe in.

Here’s some fun stuff we’ve been building on the side.

    DecisionBot

    Boy Blue’s friendly decision generator and tool for considering all manner of considerations. Born of the realization that a lot of us spend a lot of time fretting over questions of very little consequence, DecisionBot generates random answers to trivial queries, and helps you weigh your options in more serious matters.

    Available as a web app for iOS devices, so you can take DecisionBot with you in your pocket and never again get caught in a burritos-or-felafel loop.

Services

Boy Blue is a full-service design house, crafting unique, idiosyncratic brand identities and beautiful, user-friendly custom web presences for a diverse set of clients.

Whether you’re starting from scratch, in need of a logo and a color scheme, or just looking to spruce up a trusty old site, we’ve got you covered. Here are some concerns that Boy Blue can take off your plate:

Logo Design

Starting from scratch? First things first, you’ll need a logo. Everything else flows from here.

Brand Identity

These are the rules that govern the look of everything with your name on it, from your web site to business cards to ads to invoices. Consistent branding makes your operation memorable and recognizable.

Web Design & Development

With your logo and brand identity established, it’s time to build a home for what you do that’s worthy of how well you do it. This is what we do best.

Illustration

Even the best-designed site is only as good as its content, and strong visuals make for the most compelling user experience. With a network of affiliated artists and photographers, we can get you just the right image to announce your project, showcase your work, or illustrate your argument.

Print and Promotional materials

The revolution may be digital but the world remains analogue, and nothing commands attention quite like a physical object in someone’s hands. We’ll work with you to create eye-catching, memorable business cards, posters, mailers, and more, and take care of finding (and dealing with) the right print shop for the job.
