Over the years Holch has worked on a variety of other projects and logo designs. Below are just a few of these projects and links to their websites or contact information.
For 2020, Holch and Gilson (www.gilsonsnow.com) have teamed up to produce a line a Nantucket-centric snowboards and skis! Gilson is the fastest growing American snowboard and ski manufacturing company. All skis and boards and made in America to the highest quality and variety of rides: All Mountain, Freeride, Freestyle and Powder. Something great for every Nantucket Proud rider or skier.
For 2017, Nantucket Race Week is reviving the old Nantucket Regatta on the two days leading up to the annual Opera House Cup regatta in August. I was asked to design a new logo that reflects on the historic aspect of the old regatta. Visit www.nantucketcommunitysailing.org for info.

On behalf of the Egan Maritime Institute and the Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum, Holch designed a weather website for Nantucket sailors, fishermen, surfers, beachgoers and general travelers. www.ACKweather.com has been a huge hit so Holch designed a free iPhone app too! At the iTunes store!
Holch has been working with a new company, Cottage Press, to develop a line of list pads, memo cubes, journals, mugs and boxed notes. The new items feature four of Holch’s popular images; “Day at the Beach”, “Grand Afternoon”, Upstairs/Downstairs” and “Sunset Sail”.

The Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum built a 3 million dollar addition during the winter of 2008 and updated their interpretive exhibits and artifacts. Holch chaired the Building Committee that oversaw this exciting project that tells the story of Nantucket’s many famous shipwrecks and the brave lifesavers who risked their lives to save others. Open daily July – Oct.
Marblehead Greens, a new clothing line offered through F.L. Woods, hopes to successfully tie together two parts of Marblehead’s nautical past – a chart shop that’s been a town mainstay since 1938 and the green color that helped keep the town on the yachting map. The so-called “Marblehead Green” paint was developed by Sterns-McKay Manufacturing of Marblehead to prevent marine growth on the bottoms of yachts. while it was a fine anti-foulant, its color quickly led to its notoriety. www.marbleheadgreens.com
Holch has designed many custom ties for the famous fleet of Broads One Designs, in Norfolk England, The Phi Society, Opera House Cup Regatta, Hobart College, and Nantucket Cottage Hospital. Holch needs about 3 months lead time to do this if you are interested. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Alynn Neckwear has used many of Holch’s designs for a line of women’s accessories. Very popular for a summer season, they quickly sold out.

Holch has also done special commission editions for the Nantucket Yacht Club, The Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island and art galleries in Bermuda, Woodstock VT, Marblehead and Martha’s Vineyard.
Dooney & Bourke was a client of Holch’s back in his advertising days. “All-Weather Leather” was created to brand Dooney & Bourke’s new line of weather resistant handbags back in the 1980’s, but adaptations of the logo still is in use today. www.dooney.com
