Awfully Aud Designs

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.

Web Design

Soaring Eagles Veterans Ranch

Picture 2 of 2

This is a website design for the Soaring Eagles Veterans Ranch, a non-profit out east of Colorado Springs. They serve homeless veterans struggling to adapt to civilian life by teaching them a variety of lifestyle skills, related to agriculture. The website needed to serve as a place for people to send donations and volunteer to help out at the ranch, so it needed to be informative and easy to navigate. Visit this website here.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Ball Postcard Front

Picture 1 of 11

The Save the Date postcard is the first thing patrons see about the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Ball, so I wanted it to be eye-catching, but straight forward. The theme that I came up with for the Zoo Ball was simple black, white, and a neon green. So naturally, I went with zebra stripes on everything, given the zoo aspect. Thus, the save-the-date is a close up of a zebra's face, with eye-catching pantone stripes across it, and straightforward text.

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.
