Cincinnati Children's Sign

This is what it's all about. Forget about design as a job. Design is about making a positive difference in people's lives. A comped piece for this special young boy.

New Yahoo! Logo Coming...

Good idea/bad idea to tease the excitement of a new logo, but to not have any true identity for 30 days except displaying design concepts? I guess it's all about drawing interest to the upcoming changes, and will leave room for debate...

Yahoo announced on Wednesday that it's changing its logo... without showing off the actual logo itself.
In an initiative called "30 Days of Change," Yahoo will debut a different version of its famous purple logo across its various websites every day. At the end of the month, the company will settle on an official new look.

New Farmers Logo Vector

Sometimes I like to recreate logos from scratch to get a feel for the make-up and details of a logo. Farmers Insurance released this a short while ago. I enjoy discovering the little nuances such as the amount of degrees in the rotation of the rays.

This recreation should in no way be used in lieu of the actual logo (it ruins the purpose of branding).

I made all this happen in less than a day (plus more) based upon this one image...

This led to a proof my installer is to follow...

He installed this (phone # updated)...

...and all this...

Our Place Channel Letters

I was given a photo with one measurement for reference, and client's design preference, and turned it into this... 42" capital letters, black channel letters (approved by the township with my engineering drawing.) I'll have to take a photo at night because it is designed to glow any color from behind the black letters.

Subtle charcoal design printed on perforated vinyl for Vision Center (you can't see in, but you can see out.) NOTE: Our installer doesn't take the best photos :)

How To Train Your Dragon

A small project I worked on for a kid's birthday party...

Wendy's Hidden Message

This isn't my point, just a re-post from somewhere else...

"Look at the clever way the word Mom is hidden in Wendy's collar," noted Stocklogos. "The trick is most apparent in the single color variation of the logo used on packaging." Like this all-red example on a plastic cup.
