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.
🌎
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.
💦
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.
🐢
Stay tuned for more to come!

The view from my desk this morning. A little light weekend reading stacked up. Always be learning, revisiting the basics, exploring the edges and finding new inspiration to push beyond what’s accepted.

Another 5 Star Review

Another 5 Star Review

Another 5 star review from a happy client at @hallfletcheravl ! “John Hornsby worked on the rebranding of our school’s PTO logo and did a wonderful job! Mr. Hornsby was organized, creative and all responses were timely. The outcome logo fits our school’s theme perfectly and everyone loves it. Thank you so much Hornsby Creative! Great job!” It’s a joy and an honor to help organizations working to improve the world improve the impact and effectiveness of their visual communications and story telling.

Creative problem solving is my jam.

Creative problem solving is my jam.

Creative problem solving is my jam. Visual communications is one of the primary mediums in which I manifest that. But that’s really just the end product of a more in depth approach to understanding my clients, the landscape and their audience.

Connectedness is my core strength. Seeing how tweaking something here will effect something over there, in time. How connecting this person with that business will create mutual positive impact.

I love applying this skill to clarify and amplify the story of organizations whose values align with my own.

Together we are better.
