A new client of mine GK Records, is starting a record label. So he asked me to put together a logo design for his rap / hip hop record label. This is definitely the first time I’ve designed a logo for a record label, really anything music related. If you can’t tell there’s a bit of American (aka China Motors) automobile influence in there. Yes the client was advised of trademark infringement laws.
Here’s a finance logo design for Focused Compounding out of Dallas, TX. These guys are starting a WordPress blog about finance and investing, focusing on the Punch Card theory. I’ll start building the site early next week. To get a feel for the design of the site, I first started with the logo (as always). Being that the concept is built around the Punch Card theory, I incorporated that feel into the logo design by adding the numbered circles. I don’t like to overwhelm a design with too much clutter but the numbers are soft and not overbearing, so they work.
Here’s another logo concept for Cloud Nine Marketing. This logo design has some flow which makes it a bit playful and almost a bit whimsical-ee.
I reworked my friend Jon’s pine cone logo. He liked my previous design but wanted to incorporate Fibonacci’s Golden Spiral into the design. Here’s what I came up with. The font from the previous design still seems to work so I kept it.
Here’s another logo concept for Cloud Nine Marketing. The client wanted to incorporate sun rays / sunshine into the design so that’s what I did. I started with a some simple shapes and went from there. Nothing ground breaking here but a simple and recognizable design. Lets see what she thinks.
Logo concept for Cloud Nine Marketing out of the east coast. I gently incorporated the number nine into the clouds. Didn’t want to make it too noticeable. The font is built from scratch. It’s a bit playful but still feels professional.
Here’s a pine cone logo design for my hippy buddy Jon. I’ve known this guy since we were 10 years old, over twenty years. Still the same old Jon, love this guy. He’s a traveling musician that makes/sells some amazing jewelry out of Colorado pine cones. Jon travels around the country with his girlfriend living out of their van, doing whatever it takes to keep liv’n the good life. The rest of us suckers are settling for big mortgage payments and 401Ks. Keep up the hustle my friend.
The folks at Breckenridge Distillery asked me to paint their logo on the new restaurant they were building in Breckenridge, Colorado. This was a pretty simple job, and that’s probably why it turned out so good. The carpenter used some materials to give the wood a charred finish, love it, looks awesome. And being that the logo is pretty vintage looking, it makes the painting look that much cooler. Thanks to Bryan for letting me take a crack at this project, looks great.
The painting was done using a projector and some basic house paint from the folks at Ace Hardware.
By the way, if you haven’t been to Breckenridge Distillery or if you haven’t tried any of their spirits, I highly recommend it. Great flavor, high end flavor, and always goes down smooth. Awesome folks working their as well.
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.
