Out of the goodness of my heart, and being that the boys that run the Bud Cup Hockey Tournament are so generous to me, I offered to design a website for them. They don’t really have any online presence to promote this hockey tournament so I thought it would be a nice idea to put them on the map. Below is a JPEG mockup of the hockey website I designed. I did use the Budweiser logo for a bit of influence on the website layout. Not a lot of imagery, just some cool graphics. The actual site is already underway as I type. Should be wrapping up in the next week or so.
The logo concept is based off the new Bud Light logo, the new Budweiser logo and the old Budweiser logo. I didn’t want to completely rip off Budweiser, but I think it turned out pretty nice. Clean and simple, nothing to flashy and nothing to contemplate. It just works. I also used the old time AB crest, it adds a nice touch and helps to push the Budweiser theme a bit more.
Dynamic Lures asked me to put together a packaging design for a new fishing lure, “The Mighty Trout Attack!” Below is a concept in a few different color combos.

Littleton Hockey Association asked me to put together a hockey poster and logo design for each of their upcoming hockey tournaments this season. These designs would be used for promotional material as well as tournament tee’s for the players. I wanted keep a general concept for all three designs so I made sure certain elements remained in each of the designs. Here’ what we came up with for each of the tournaments.
Dynamic Lures out of Grand Junction, CO, contacted me to design some new apparel for their fishing lure company. The first design they wanted to tackle (no pun intended), was a new hat design. The owner wanted a patch design on a soft mesh flexfit style hat. Below is the design I came up for the fishing logo along with a mockup.
While designing the poster for the “All Colorado Beer Festival”, they asked me to incorporate their logo into the poster somewhere. My first impression was that their logo was a bit out dated. The layout made it hard to read, plus it just didn’t flow and wasn’t very user friendly if you’re trying to apply it to different applications. So I came up with a simple logo that I feel encompasses all the elements that make up the name for this beer fest, Colorado and beer! Here’s what I put together.
The USJDP is working with CCM Hockey for their upcoming youth hockey camp. They asked me to design for the players participating in the CCM Challenge Cup game. Here’s what I came up with.

I recently designed a new logo for the Steamboat Wranglers Jr hockey team out of Steamboat, Colorado.
Punch Card Research started as a small personal blog out of Michigan. They research the data from both large and small businesses. Their idea is to give readers some detailed insight into which companies are worth investing in and which ones to avoid. The concept behind the name ‘Punch Card Research’ is that if a potential investor only has ‘X’ amount of investments to make over his/her lifetime, they might choose a little more wisely before investing their hard earned money into a potentially hazardous business model.
Do to a high demand from their extensive readers, Punch Card Research has hired Hi-five Design to put together a simple branding package for them along with a new website that proudly promotes their knowledge into the business world.
Here is my first approach towards the logo. My thought process behind the design was to incorporate a graph for the companies logo. So within the box is both a line graph and a bar graph symbolizing growth. The lettering is very bold and simple. I used navy and gray as the main colors since they represent both a professional and corporate mentality. Being that you’re doing research on companies growth and success, it seemed fitting. I used the red as something to catch the eye and make the logo a bit more recognizable. The red also symbolizes the word “research” which and is also used in the bar graph within the logo, so the two coincide. I imagine most people stick a punch card in there wallet so it gets a bit beat up from being taken in and out. This is why the logo has a bit of a grunge effect to it.
And that’s the silly psychology behind the logo concept. Lets see what the client thinks.
