Two Colorado Springs business partners came to me because they were looking to branch away from their corporate real estate jobs and venture off on their own. How exciting! They were in need of a real estate logo design and brand/identity package for their new project, and prompt. In fact they needed a 24 hour turn-around time. Not to rush the project but… Luckily I just happened to have some free time towards the end of this week. They weren’t 100% on the design concept, but they did have some sketches, which gave me some insight into where their heads were at. Being that they weren’t set on anything in particular, I had some creative freedom for the project. Here’s what I came up with for the Colorado Springs real estate logo design.
Here is coffee truck logo design for a gentleman out of Colorado Springs. Despite the fact that the coffee world is an ever growing business, and competition is fierce, I think the creative brain behind Frantic Nomad Coffee Company is on to something pretty cool and unique. Since his life is built around the love for the outdoors, and all the adventurous activities that come with it, he decided to tackle the outdoor adventurists market. He and his VW bus will be hitting the road and setting up shop at events like downhill mountain biking, rock climbing and kayaking. Serving up a hot cup-o-joe to all those adrenaline junkies out there. Pretty cool concept! Super excited to help Jason out with his project. I love seeing those tiny ideas manifest themselves and come to life.
Just playing around on the computer today. Here’s a 1965 Volkswagen Bus illustration, just for fun. These are still a work in progress. I’m thinking I’ll add in some sort of background scene in there. Look’n pretty good so far though.
Just whipped up a new logo design for Cerberus Brewing out of Colorado Sprigns. This logo design is for their Mountain Juice Hazy IPA. Pretty tasty I must say. And the design is nice too.
Every year I design the All Colorado Beer Festival poster. This event is run by a non-profit that donates a tremendous amount of money to local charities. So I donate my time by designing their posters, tees, and promotional material. Here’s what I came up with.
Here is a hippo logo design for a company out of Colorado Springs. These guys design and manufacture skylight protection covers for homes. Here’s what I came up with.
Cerberus Brewing asked me to design a new logo for their brand. They wanted to go with a full dog this time, as opposed to just the head. During the brainstorming process, I started thinking about Black Label Society and how their band logo embodies that old biker gang style. Something you’d see on the back of a leather jacket. Rough and tough and full of piss and vinegar. the design, not Cerberus’s beer, their beer is great. Here’s what I came up with.
A couple Fort Carson brothers came to me with an idea about starting a small business here in Colorado Springs. They were essentially rebuilding old dirt bikes to new condition specs. They would also be working with the VA in some way. So they asked me to design a motorcycle logo for their new venture. The company name was going to be Death Grip Motorsports. Here’s what I came up with.
A roofing company out of Colorado Springs is looking to expand their business into the Arizona territory. Which is where the family owned business is originally from. They were looking for us to develop a roofing logo design and start building on their brand identity. Originally the owner wanted to incorporate the Arizona state flag. However I’ve never been a big fan of this idea because so many other businesses utilize these same elements within their own logos. So I went a different route, still utilizing Arizona colors and elements from the desert landscape. For the logos icon, I wanted to incorporate an Arizona mountain with a rooftop. Seems to work, I dig it. The font is a simple and bold sans-serif font with some minor tweaks. I did keep with the Arizona colors, however I replaced the yellow with a soft grey. Overall it seems like a strong design concept. Lets see what the owners think.
I painted these wall graphics for Whirly Bowl in Coloardo Springs last summer. Apparently I forgot to put them on my portfolio. Whirly Bowl just opened up last July. During their construction they contacted me to paint their logo in the bowling alley area as well as the Whirly Ball rooms. Each logo is approximately 20ft in length. Love this kind of work because it gets me out of the office and off the computer. Good stuff!
