Logo Design & Branding
Logo designed for a new company specializing in land and property investment management. The design needed to portray wisdom and integrity as well as trustworthiness. Although this was a new company I needed to provide the client with a design that gave them an established look.
After completion of the logo, I began the design of the letterhead and business cards, and then the company website.
This is a logo design for a new company offering a service for (obviously) secure document storage and needed a logo to reflect that idea. After brainstorming with the clients to get an idea for what they had in mind, I created a set of design comps to begin refining the logo and get to a final design. Each design was created using only 2 colors for simplicity as well as saving on printing costs. With each logo design that I presented I included a stationery design at the client’s request.
This was my personal favorite of the designs though the client chose another design. Below are some examples of the designs I provided during the creative process.
Moore Capital is a new business in need of a logo design and branding strategy. I provided the client with three concepts including a 2 color design with logo elements that would be integrated into the company’s branding. The “owl” option was my favorite though the client chose “columns”.
Sometimes logo creation can be easy. I was hired to create the logo for Pilates Revolution – an in-home pilates gym. After one round of revisions we finalized the logo with this design and color scheme. Below are the original design comps I presented to the client.
Sometimes the creative process can be pretty extensive. After several meetings with the clients and trying to reproduce the client’s original “sketch” I created these designs.
The client was selling unique, wooden, or organic material, toys and clothes for children. I needed to relate those kinds of ideas into a logo.
The round logo pictured here was my personal favorite although it was not the choice of the client.
caringgrandparents.com is a custom wordpress driven site designed to promote grandparents rights. The logo needed to be simple and established. The loop on the letter G ties grand & parents together and I like the idea that caring is what makes grandparents grand!
The website utilizes wordpress as CMS to take full advantage of the SEO benefits as well as putting content control in the clients hands. Other technologies used in the function of caringgrandparents.com are PHP, MySQL, CSS, & HTML. Custom features to the site include ad space, name capture, as well as a custom design.
The greatest benefit that I see to a design like this is the capacity to organize a large amount of content – There are several months of published articles and resources on the site. The grid and structure of the design along with the stability of wordpress to manage the backend of the site is a perfect pairing or form and function.
details coming soon… I promise!
This was a new logo designed for a new business. And Pack provides industrial packing materials – most of which come in roll form. I played on that idea in creating the logo. Letterhead Package was designed for this as well as the logo.
Details coming soon… I promise!
This rocks! I was hired to develop the logo and website for the Stuck Clutch Amps Collection. Fender made a series of amplifiers in 1968 with some newly designed features and a local collector has every one of them.
I was hired to first photograph the collection, design a logo to represent the group as a whole, and design a web site that showcases each of the amplifiers.
This was such a fun project for me to work on because of my love for music and instruments – especially Fender Amps ( I own a vintage replica amp myself )
The site uses wordpress as the content management system and the design and photography is all my original work. Go check out the website at stuckclutchamps.com – did you notice the knobs are tuned to 1968?
Jam in the Park is a series of concerts organized by a group of music lovers in Spartanburg. I was hired to design a website and logo that would give them an attractive way to display and organize event information, photo galleries, sponsors, and schedules.
The icing on the cake? Well, all the concerts happen in my own neighborhood here in Duncan Park!
Check out the features like WordPress, SEO, PHP, CSS, Social Network integration, and in case you don’t care about the features – check out the schedule and come to one of the concerts!
This was another really fun project for me to work on. Shane has been a friend of mine for a long time and I’ve been a fan of his for just as long. I designed the logo and website with a longer range goal of implementing these elements into album art, and promotional materials.
One of the challenges to keeping up-to-date with a band is keeping your content consistent across your social media sites as well as your official page. I provided the SPB management with a solution that seems to be working out well for them. Using wordpress as CMS, I have incorporated reverbnation widgets into the site and social media sites (Facebook & Myspace) so that they only have one calender and media player to update and the changes are automatically loaded to each site. Next time Shane’s band is playing near you, you ought to go out and watch them.
This project incorporates logo and web design. The logo is new original artwork and the redesigned website gives users a feature rich and user friendly experience.
Custom forms for tenants as well as property owners were created and implemented into the design. The client has greatly enjoyed the increase in traffic and business as a result of the new web presence.
Since launching the new site I have seen an average of 10 organic leads per week inquiring about properties directly through the site’s contact form. I believe this is a great example of how using wordpress to manage content and incorporating the right meta data into a well designed site results in increased business to the client.
Crunchy Promotions is an event marketing company and they needed a website to showcase in a visual manner, how they can promote a product or brand.
I am going to be adding some new features to the site which will give the client some added functionality on top of just web presence.
Here is a newer site I have been working on. This is my wife’s photo site. We shoot a lot together and needed a nice place to show off the pics. I am still tweaking the design though.
The objective is to give the client an edge over the competition by utilizing the SEO and CMS technology included in WordPress. The visual side is always the same – Make it look great! Check out the galleries page to see some of my photography integrated into the site as well as the redesigned logo and branding throughout the site.
The logo was designed using an actual lemon peel that I cut and shaped to the position I wanted, then photographed, converted to vector art and finally used in the logo design. The example below shows an unused design as part of the art refining process. You can see in the rough draft that I had used the photograph of the lemon peel whereas in the final logo it had been converted to line art. The client was opening her shoe parlor in a renovated building that had some art deco architechtural flourishes and they wanted the typeface to reflect that style.
