I was asked to design a logo for this year's "Company Christmas Party" at the W.E. Skelton 4-H Center at Smith Mountain Lake. We're still in the design stage at this point, but here are the first round of logos for them to look at:
They requested black & white versions, along with full color versions. The concept is pretty cool - they sell tables to small businesses to host their company Christmas party along with other small businesses, providing food, beverages, and entertainment!
This is a work in progress, but I thought I'd share what I have so far. A local gym (in Roanoke) asked me to design a logo for them, with the idea that they really liked the Foo Fighters logo. Here are the ideas I've sent them so far:
Hopefully they'll find something they like out of these choices, that we can then modify and/or build upon.
The Burnt Chimney Elementary PTO asked me to design a logo for their 2017 Bulldog Color Walk. An idea instantly popped in my head and they loved it! This has to be the quickest design I've ever done... we're talking start to finish, from their first contact to approval, right at 2 hours. That's the way I like to get things done!
My amazing hairstylist, Holly Fox, chose this logo to use! She asked me for a few options with floral backgrounds, so I searched one of my all-time favorite free stock photo websites (https://unsplash.com)for pictures and found several gorgeous options. This is the version she ultimately went with, but I'll post the other options below:
After many ideas and design evolutions... my bf still hasn't found what he's looking for. :P I think it's tricky for him because he's creative & artsy, too, but isn't sure how to explain to me exactly what he wants. Maybe one day we'll be on the same page!
Here are the next 4 variations of his logo:
v. 2 - These are totally different from the first version; they're simple and versatile with a slightly vintage feel. Not sure about the fonts, but there are a couple here I really like (mostly the black oval with red brush stroke under auto upholstery & the bottom left solid blue).
My hairstylist is opening a new salon, so I decided to design her a few logo ideas she could have (if she wanted- no obligation, I just enjoy making them). I think she's leaning toward something a little more instagrammable (is that a word? it should be) than these, but I think they're cute enough to share:
Adorn. Catchy, I think! She's an amazing colorist, so if you're looking for a stylist in Roanoke, you should find her!
The principal at BCES, where I used to work, asked me to submit some designs for his teenage daughter's softball team last fall. They didn't use any of my designs, but it was still a fun little project to work on, and I am really happy with how they turned out!
The VP at my company asked me to design a little label for the handmade guitar he built! How cool is that? Hmm... I wonder if I could build my own ukulele...
Anyway, I thought since he was looking for a vintage style label, I'd try my hand at a little hand lettering (for the logo only- the rest is digital). He graciously trusted my judgement and let me choose my favorite of my designs to use; and after numerous attempts (and multiple digital tweaks), here is what I settled on:
I think it turned out nearly as awesome as the guitar itself! :P Though seriously- how cool is it to build...
