3 Projects Past

For whatever reason these projects got passed by without being posted. Rather than spread them out over the next few weeks (and get more behind posting projects) I’m going to combine them into this one post.

First up is a logo for Kimberly Jane Photography. Fortunately her favorite flowers are lilies (which can look very different depending on what kind they are). It made for a really interesting logo mark. So I created this vector lilly to compliment the color theme and text.

Next is a Coaster for Hoppers. Based on the Chill concept I created previously and the piranha I did for their t-shirts. It seemed an effortless project. Like putting puzzle pieces together that were meant to be together in this perfect space.

Lastly is a website header I did for Money Desktop in Flash. There are 5 animations meant to run continuously with small pauses in between or to be clicked around using the navigation at the bottom. It all came together quite nicely. Click Here to see the animation

Reef logo texture illustration

Posted on Thursday, February 11, 2010 in Business Identity, Graphic Design, Illustration, Logos

So my client found this photo of this colored swirling glass that she thought was perfect for her logo. She couldn’t get ahold of the photographer to get his permission to use it. Not only that but part of it was too dark and made the logo difficult to read. So she asked me if I could illustrate something similar for her to use. I said yes not knowing how I was going to do it. The result was surprising even to me. I built it from scratch in photoshop. This is what she had to say about it, “WOW, that turned out WAY better than I expected!  I love it! It’s better than the photo. Super, awesome, amazing, tubular, sweet, etc.”. In addition to the logo it will be used as part of the business identity (letterhead, business cards, etc.

For reference I am showing the original photo.
