Covid 19 Interview on Creative Hub

Covid 19 Interview on Creative Hub

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with @creativehubstudios and discuss my perspective on the current state of affairs. I really enjoyed spending time with these two fellow creatives and awesome community members.

Big happy birthday shout out to local community pod casters Making it in Asheville!

Big happy birthday shout out to local community podcasters @makingitinasheville. I won their birthday giveaway contest, which included some awesome home baked chocolate cookies, this super comfy shirt from @moonlightmakers, a sweet little note and some one on one brainstorming time with Sarah and Scott. Way to bring some physical deliverables into our screen fatigued new normal.
Also a big thank you to fellow designer @ampd_designs
who tagged me in the contest. I might share a cookie with you if it weren’t for social distancing and all.
If you haven’t heard their podcast yet, there is a recent one with Moonlight Makers. Go check out Making It In Asheville on @spotify @applepodcasts or wherever you download your digital ear snacks.

Last year I was tapped to design the holiday card for the Van Winkle Law Firm.

Last year I was tapped to design the holiday card for the Van Winkle Law Firm.

Interestingly, many of the lawyers are also musicians and each year they record a holiday song. One of the requirements of the brief was that a lot of the members of the firm had to be represented. It was also the 50th anniversary of Sgt Peppers. So I pitched the idea of the holiday card being a “record” that played off of the classic album design. It included a printed insert that had download instructions for listening to their collection of holiday tunes.
This was definitely one of my favorite projects from last year.

Here’s a simple straight all American style logo

Here’s a simple straight all American style logo I did a little while back for my mechanic, crane operator and all around good guy Jeff Dover. A little stars and bars monogram for a stellar client and operational partner.

Times are tough right now and so are we. Let’s design a better future.
We got this!

Riparian Turtle Moodboard

Riparian Turtle Moodboard

Here’s a moodboard for a current logo /branding project I’m working on for Blue Earth Planning, Engineering & Design.
šŸŒŽ
The moodboard is part of the collaborative design process where we select inspirational imagery that represents the mood we are looking to evoke with the brand design. The imagery is not intended to be taken too literally and just helps establish some boundaries within which to focus our creative work.
šŸ’¦
As the client is a unique values based hydroengineering firm, we’ve focused on drawing our primary inspiration from riparian topography and turtle imagery. Through our detailed discovery process we’ve identified these as our key elements.
šŸ¢
Stay tuned for more to come!
