IDENTITY AND LOGOS

IDENTITY AND LOGOS

I love working on logos — whether it's for clients, or personal use, there is something visceral about creating a foundational piece that will likely affect any communications that follow. I love the challenge to create something so simple, but memorable, that can stand alone, or as part of a system. Here are a few I'm working on for a client right now that are part of an overall system. Simplistic in style, but with very real parts that will lend itself to shape and create a brand feeling when coupled with messaging and content.






These are a few that I have in the works right now for a client. Meant to evoke letterforms at first glance, these represent a birds-eye view of plans, a macro arrangement of objects, or a filled wire-frame of shape.

Woodworking

Woodworking

As my side gig -- I have been doing a lot of real work and prototyping with woodworking! Really enjoying the design and fabrication process. Here are a few examples to check out:

Having fun!

I get really excited to work with new projects. It's the thrill of working up possibilities with almost free reign to try new ideas, new ways to look at things and to provide an outside perspective. It's why I still love what I do, and know I'm doing what I was supposed to do.

It's been far too long...

What a great adventure I've been having with the furniture design/build! Have met tons of great people, and done a ton of work! I'm so very blessed to be able to work with such great people, and have such great projects!

 

Furniture Design

I've always loved furniture design -- and now I'm slowly learning to build!

Presentation Materials

Turned in materials today to a (hopefully) future client. Going through the same process I ask my clients to do is never an easy task. But, it is a good reflection of the work I have done over the years. I have been very lucky to have some great clients!

Shopping Malls

I remember spending countless hours in these massive malls with my friends... Now they're empty indoor ghost towns.

Some still have the broken neon signage hanging, beckoning us to come in and see what they have to offer...

Now that our tastes have changed, and we shop boutique stores...all we have left is these behemoths awaiting the wrecking ball.

WELCOME

Welcome to the new site brought to you by the fine folks at Bottlegreen... After an eternity spent like the cobbler's kids with no shoes, we have finally gotten our act together to create this website. Visiting a site like this on the internets will only bring joy to my wife, my family and a few close friends...but, that is enough for me. Thanks for stopping by...

Yuck!

Went to a really good live music show last night:
