Here is a fishing bait packaging design for Grand Junction, CO company Dynamic Lures. This Sneak Attack Soft Swim Jig is designed for multi-species. Since we didn’t have to go after a specific fish, the client was open to whatever we thought was cool. So we chose a Walleye for the fish design. We mocked it up in a few different color palettes. Dig it!
We’re inching closer to a final veteran logo design for Colorado Springs non-profit, The Home Front Cares. Here’s a branding mockup to demonstrate how this logo will be applied to various applications. The design can be used with and without the badge. The Home Front Cares helps out veterans from all military branches. The image on the back of the business cards will be swapped out with various photos to promote each military branch. Since the client wanted to go with a WWII feel, we’ll be using vintage photos of old war planes, war ships, and infantry soldiers.
We’re currently in the process of developing a real estate website design for Colorado Springs company, Mountain Peak Realty. I always put together a mockup of the home page to give the client an idea of how the site will look and function. This also allows us to easily make changes prior to actually building the site in WordPress. Here’s what we came up with.
Here is another logo concept for veteran owned non-profit “The Home Front Cares”. Same general layout as before but with some tweaks. The font is a bit more aggressive than the previous design. This layout seems to works pretty well with the structure of the company name. I’ll be putting together a badge style design as well just to see how it flows.
The gentlemen over at The Home Front Cares, asked me to put together a new logo design for their military veteran owned non-profit organization. Their original design was definitely in need of an overhaul. They wanted a fresh look that strongly represented the new direction the company was headed in. After brainstorming on some ideas, we decided to go after a vintage 1940s style theme for this logo concept. Along with the logo design, this included developing WWII type graphics to build on the theme. Very excited to be working on this project. Shawn and Tony have great vision for the direction of this organization. Looking forward to seeing where this project goes.
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.
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.
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.
