Branding Mood Board Sneak Peek

Branding Mood Board Sneak Peek

Here’s a sneak peek at a mood board for a new brand I’m working on. After initial client interview and preliminary research, this collection images and color serves as a general inspiration tool and guide post to agree upon feel and tone as we work to develop the logo and branding.

Typography Illustration on Father’s Day

Sending out a little love this Father’s day.
❤️
Teaching our kids to choose love over hate, fear, tribalism, the list goes on and on, is a never ending labor of… Love.
💜
Thanks to the father figures in my life who’ve set the example and shown me love even when I was difficult. ♥️

Working hard on brand messaging

Working hard on brand messaging

Projects I’ve touched today include three logo / branding jobs, poster designs and recording a radio spot for a non profit, measuring an arm for a veterinarian’s tattoo design, digging into a slide deck and gathering data for a climate info graphic. I’m probably forgetting a few other things.

Like why is there no beer in my house?

Mood Board : Logo Branding Sneak Peek

Mood Board : Logo Branding Sneak Peek

Sneak peek of a mood board for a current branding project.

I put a lot of preliminary work into each logo design including digging in deep with the client to explore both their values and those of their ideal client. Then I research the competition, history, folklore and color psychology building a common thread of visual iconography to provide the framework from which to design.

The discovery and research process is as every bit as rewarding for me as the actual creative graphic design. And it helps ensure a final result that doesn’t just look good. It works.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day

“We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.” Moina Michael
