A Crack In The Process.

(click image to enlarge for full photocopier details)

I was recently asked by an old friend to help create a design for their company, including a logo and a web-site for the business. Unfortunately, the farther the process went, the more I realized that they knew what they wanted all along and really didn't need me to accomplish the look for them. With that said, I really liked what I did for their logo (above) and will likely resurrect the concept in the future for another relevant project.

Note: I enjoyed the creativity the office photocopier allowed me for this logo. I've done this in the past but it was the discussion of this technique in the House Industries presentation (ala my boy Jeremy Dean and his Flyer Fonts collection) that resurrected the idea, got me out of my computer chair and into the "organic" world once again.

Myself and my family are involved in supporting the Humane League of Lancaster County, a wonderful organization who are trying to make a major difference for animals of all kinds here in Lancaster County. And if you've seen Oprah or studied up on Puppy Mills, you know the League is up against a lot in these parts.

The Tailwagger's Trot is the League's #1 fundraiser for the year and this is a certificate I whipped up quickly for them to give to special volunteers.

Design On Display.

The PCA&D Faculty Biennial opened on First Friday here in Lancaster. I included my final designs for Ricky Nelson and Louis Prima in addition to both the final, printed piece and the original artwork for Shadows Fall's The War Within album.
