My personal logo (reworked) 2017

I developed this logo over a period of several months, I actually loved my old logo but it just wasn’t geometrically correct: in other words, the shapes were mostly guesswork and it wasn’t as smooth and polished as I would have liked. A few months ago I introduced a very sharp logo that I really liked but I didn’t like the way it looked at a smaller size.

League of Nations Imports logo 2015

The idea behind this logo was to create a strong brand that evoked the feelings of a 1920s imports house on the docks. This logo is very vector heavy but that’s the point. One huge distinction between the current trend in logo design is simplicity, symmetry and scalability (will it work as an app icon?). While these are all praiseworthy design principles they preclude some of the beautiful logos of the interwar period where designers relied a lot more on illustration and telling a strong story rather than just creating a brand identity that could be reproduced almost anywhere by almost anyone. I hope that the League of Nations Imports logo harkens back to that time.

Gem Mine Logo 2017

Gem Mine is a location based social network that I am working on and off (not officially launched yet). This logo was created for a pitch, I really like it however if the name changes between now and release I’ll have to create a new logo.

Watercolor 2017

This may look familar, it’s based on a classic Monte Carlo poster. No plagerism, I’m willing to give credit where credit is due. I sketched and painted this in my sketchbook in an attempt to familiarize myself with watercolors and also to get a handle on the awesome glyphs that the original designer used.
