Anytime Fitness Skokie Logo

Anytime Fitness Skokie desired a logo for the Fall 2016 release of apparel. They gave me complete creative freedom, so I created six logos for the client to choose which direction to go in. I used photos of the beach in Chicago, mountains, and an etching that I made. I played with different fonts and logo shapes in order to give them a variety of options.

Upon their feedback, I developed more logos with the Chicago skyline and stars. I decided to make four final options, with the Chicago skyline as the focus of the logo. Using Photoshop I was able to paint the background of the logos to create a unique effect.

Barky's

Barky's Dog Treats needed a cheerful, bright and energetic logo to bring in new customers for their new line of dog treats. The overall vibe of Barky's was spirited, hip, and professional, therefore I wanted to create a logo that fit with their personality.

The client sent several images to start from, above left. From there I created six logos with different text and a dachshund dog in different poses so the client could decide which direction to go from there. Upon choosing their favorite logo, I finalized the details and Barky's is extremely pleased with their new logo.

Exhibition Gallery Cards

In conjunction with fellow artists, I have designed and overseen gallery card design for several exhibitions. We wanted to create original and clean gallery cards to invite guests to our opening receptions. Together, we designed modern gallery cards that were distributed in Savannah, GA, across social media, and on our websites. Thanks to our designs, we were able to bring in over 200 guests to each of the exhibitions, [Middle-ground] and 'Hunny'.

Branding

For the year 2016 I was in need of a cohesive branding scheme for my promotional material. I teamed up with two talented graphic artists, Holly Broderick http://www.hollysbroderick.com/ and Alex Werbickas https://www.behance.net/alexwerbickas
and used one of my etchings, "The Flower of Life", to create a clean, cohesive, and modern design.

Together we were able to create a contemporary design that I have used to promote opening and closing receptions, promotional material including business cards, postcards, gallery cards, and flyers.
