Kevin Shoun came to me with a draft logo that his friend made (left). After I noticed the stock imagery from the Photoshop Library, I really pushed to use a more unique and sophisticated feel for his logo with an updated facade. After some editing, Kevin and I were able to get the final version of his logo together (right).
He is very excited to be using his new logo for his new business cards and even made his announcement using the new logo. Over time, he may want to make some tweaks but he is pleased with the outcome of his new branding.
Ely Cyrus returned for the creation of a simple 5"x 7" mailer using photos from his Facebook. To maintain his branding, I used a modified version of his logo. For the phrase "Responsibility to Tribe," I matched the font from his name within the logo to tie both ends of the mailer together.
I made a custom pattern in Illustrator that matched the seems of Ely's jacket and used it as a border for his imagery.
I worked with Ely Cyrus on a logo and newsprint advertisement for the local House elections of District 40 in Alaska. I used Illustrator for his logo and background patterns, Photoshop for the background and portrait cropping/touch-ups, and InDesign to create the rest of the advertisement.
Ely reached out to me after the first designer couldn't quite get the logo right for him. He was provided with about 4 original designs that were too cluttered for his liking and the text didn't fit with the rest of the logo. I talked with Ely about his campaign identity and immediately envisioned the imagery to the right.
Ely was very pleased with the first proof of all items. He has returned for the design of another election logo and postcard, which will be uploaded to this portfolio upon approval.
One of my recent projects included the design of a logo and a powerpoint presentation with a fast turnaround. It's a Native-owned business looking to expand their services.
My first task was to design a logo. I was provided with the image of an Inuit drum with a raven and immediately opened up Adobe Illustrator and got to work. It was one of the first logos I designed for a client using the golden ratio method so I was unsure how it was going to be received. To my delight, the client loved the logo and didn't want to proceed with any other mockups.
Upon completion of the logo, I received the information for a powerpoint presentation. I used some of my own photos for visuals and was able to submit a 10-slide powerpoint within 3-4 hours, including back and forth communication with the client on changes. Below are some of the slides highlighting parts of the presentation:
