Pretty early on in my career I took on an internship. It was one of the worst experiences of my life, I was working 30 hours a week unpaid and was taking home books to read for homework, but it was a crash course in branding that gave me a skill-set that I still use often to this day. While I did have a rough beginning, after leaving I was able to work with a wide range of clients, large and small and this page shows a selection of the best of that work.
SEO Website Logos
My client was a web based ad-agency that created SEO based websites for emerging industries and tech. The logos are necessary from an SEO perspective because along with text they populate the webpage in such a way that generates more traffic via google and other algorithm based index searches. To that end I made countless logos for this client and his websites. This is merely a selection of the best, ranging from ones done for financial services, medical technologies and treatments, as well as smart devices.
Black Cat LES
My client was a Manhattan restaurateur who wanted to create a menu that could serve as a long term tool to promote their branding but also to serve as a promotional item to be given away at a one-off event hosted at the establishment, The client provided me with the logo but without any typography so my first step was to take the logo past the initial stage. From there I decided that I preferred the complimentary yellow/purple color palette to something more traditional for a cafe, as the purple served as a great replacement for the "black" in the title.
Wine Investment Cellars
My client was the owner of a monthly wine subscription program and wanted post-cards and branding to begin their email campaign which would ideally lead into their subscription based service. Along with some brief guidelines I created this logo. The logo combines the rustic worn feel of an old-world Italian winery with the modernity that is the essential aspect of the subscription based service. Unfortunately these folks never took the idea off the ground but the work generated is still beautiful nonetheless.
Queen Of Sheba
My client was an Ethiopian restaurateur who wanted some printed material for take-out menus and wedding catering that fit with their already established branding. Along with some brief guidelines from the client, I created this all of the artwork featured here based upon the art direction and colors of the logo. Takeout sales improved dramatically after the implementation of these neat menus.
Creative Sports Concepts
My client was a sports facility flooring installer who worked with professional sports teams, high schools and universities as well as private enterprises and wanted me to design a logo and create a branding package that aligned with their sales and marketing goals. To that end, I created all of the artwork featured here based based upon my starting point of creating the "Creative Sports Concepts Logo." After creating the logo I created business cards, presentation folders, letterheads, envelopes, and even t-shirts for this company.
