This is a logo I made for my friend Hank Yates’s music project, Mousy Magazine. He wanted a logo that recalled the patches and emblems from space missions of yore. I was happy to help him achieve this look. After studying the shape, color, and design of these patches, we landed on a design that he liked. I think it worked out well.
Back in September, I was tasked with creating this poster for a flood relief benefit that was organized to help victims affected by the south Louisiana flood in mid-August. At the time, I had just read books on Massimo Vignelli and Michael Bierut, and I had been looking into Swiss grid design and their strong, successful use of Helvetica. I was ready to put what I had learned to use.
This 22×36 poster was one of the first results of that research and education. As always, I tried to keep it simple, bold, and readable/legible (yes, in the graphic design world these are actually two different things). The relief benefit was held at WFR Church, and I’m happy that we were able to help some of the many folks who lost everything they had in the flood.
A while back I created this logo for some friends of mine who are in the production business. They handle services such as marketing, content development, filming, video editing, etc. We put our heads together, and after multiple iterations, we came up with this logo. The idea was to have a wordmark that was simple, clean, and says local, yet professional. I’m happy with the result…it’s bright, bold, and very legible.
Earlier this year I was hired to design a logo for a new jewelry company, Trinity Diamonds Direct. These guys had been exclusively in the wholesale business for a while, but were looking to move into the retail space for the first time.
Although they are still continuing their wholesale business (as their company name implies), I sought to design a logo for them that emphasized elegance and quality. They loved the logo, and it seems that their business is off to a great start.
