My fiance and I decided to get some tintype photos taken for our “Save the Date” mail-outs. This past summer we were poking around Salida, CO, checking out the local scene. We ran across Tim Brown’s Photography studio and thought what a great idea for some wedding invites. Tim was so awesome, very informative on the entire process of taking the tintype photos as well as some history on how chemists by chance stumbled across the effect of light on silver back in the early 1800s. We even got to go into the dark room to see the development process. Heck we even got play around with cyanide!!! This is the fixer for those of you who don’t know. Long story short, the experience was great and the photos turned out awesome. If you’re looking for some vintage tintype photos and in the area be sure to stop by Tim Brown’s Photography studio in Salida, CO. My fiance looks real grouchy in the third photo!
Just playing around with some weird stuff today. It’s a great day for a bike ride.
Cerberus Brewing wanted to incorporate the new Cerberus design we did for them into their delicious Elysium IPA. Here’s what I came up with. If you live in Colorado Springs, make sure you stop by Cerberus Brewing and have a pint of this beer, so stink’n good!
The president of Cerberus Brewing out of Colorado Springs asked me to put together a new design for their company. The owners want to build on their brand by taking their company logo / mascot and putting him (could be a lady, I didn’t ask) into various poses and facial expressions. Here is the first design that will be used for their upcoming 2nd Anniversary. Just sent this off to be thoroughly examined by their team. Hopefully they dig it as much as I do.
Just finished working on the first concept for the 2018 Breckenridge Oktoberfest hockey tournament logo. That’s a mouth full. I almost always start with one design concept and present it to the client. As opposed to two or three. That way, even if they hate it, at least we have a frame of reference and some direction to go in. It’s not always necessary to spend an extra hour or ten working on multiple designs. I find that almost all my clients need some sort of starting point before they actually figure out just what they want. However, it’s always nice when they like the first design, definitely makes my job easier.
Just finished working on a hockey logo design for the 2018 Hockey Mountain High tournament in Aspen, CO. We went with a vintage patch style design for this logo. We didn’t want to pound out this design with too much flare. Instead we focused the design around the the big mountain Rockies. Aspens junior hockey program uses a forest green and gold for their team colors so I figure that’s the color palette they’ll go with for this design. Clean and simple tw0-color print. It’s gonna look pretty good on some new tees.
Put together a hockey anchor logo design for Bleed Hockey. This will primarily be used for their social media platforms. Would make for some cool tees in the future though. “It’s a hockey life for me”.
Here is my second attempt at this logo design. The client wasn’t a huge fan of the wire haired dog I used in the first design, which was based off a wire haired pointer. So we used the clients dog for this one. Probably should have thought of that in the first place.
This small start up out of Colorado Springs is going into the dog hiking business. I can’t think of a better time than blasting through the big Rocky Mountains with a trail of pups behind you. Sounds like a good time to me! The client wanted to go after a badge style design so here’s what we came up with. Simple and bold as always. We don’t always put together this many color palettes, but they all just looked so darn good. I’m sure the client is going to have a hard time deciding which to go with. Oh well, hope they dig the design.
Here is a handyman logo design for a new Colorado Springs company. These guys wanted to go after a retro logo design with a bit of hotrod influence. Sort of has that gas monkey feel to it. Here’s what I came up with.
