Logo - Awfully Aud Designs

Picture 1 of 8

When creating the logo for Awfully Aud Designs, I had a few guidelines to follow. The owners wanted a "spirograph" feeling flower for their logo, so I came up with a five-petaled flower, which I gave a dashed stroke to to imitate stitching. The three partners who own the business all had different ideas for the color palette of the business, so it was a balancing act to finally come out with the yellow, turquoise, and blue. I chose the yellow for the flower initially because it was eye-catching and cheerful, while still being feminine and youthful. The deep blue for the text was a nice contrast, dark enough to easily be read without being a plain black. I chose a script font for the main part of the name and juxtaposed it with a "stitched", sans-serif font for the second part of the name, again to help drive home the sewing and embroidery aspect of their business.

Buzz’n Bagels

Buzz'n Bagels - Logo

Logo design for a new, local Bagel shop. The owner really wanted to emphasize the "bee" part of the name, so I created a fun honeycomb backdrop which is then echoed throughout the branding.

Metric Brewing

Logo - Metric Brewing

When interviewing the owner of Metric Brewing, he kept coming back to an industrial aesthetic that he was trying to capture in his new brewery. So I came up with a hops inside of a gear, to encompass that industrial, hard work feeling he was aiming for, while still showing that this is the logo for a brewery, and not an auto parts store. For colors, I came up with a burnt orange and grey scheme. The orange evokes a sort of "construction" feel, without being "hazard vest" orange.

Print Design

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Ball Postcard Back

Picture 2 of 11

The back of the Zoo Ball postcard is utilitarian. It's necessary to list the sponsors for the event, so I left space to the left of where the barcode for mailing prints, and used a green stripe imitating a present box to lead the eye to the need-to-know information box, bordered with and backed by more zebra stripes.

Sewing and Vacuum Newsletter mock-up

A 20-page newsletter design for a local sewing and vacuum store, geared towards holiday sales. The owner expressed that he wanted to see a completely new version of their monthly newsletter, and I delivered just that. For the cover, I simplified what they currently have, making it more like a magazine cover, and removed the table of contents that they currently insert on the front page.
