Logo created for a local restaurant from my hometown. The client and I worked together to capture the ambience of sitting out on a cool summer evening and enjoying a meal of home-made Italian food together with friends and family.
A poster created while working as a designer for my hometown coffee shop, Barefoots Joe. This poster was one of my first experiments with the style and feel of letterpress, and I was happy to put those skills to use for an incredible band like Seryn.
Identity and collateral created while working at Union University. Family Weekend is a celebration where family members of current students are invited to come join in several events and festivities as an opportunity to spend some time together as a family.
A poster created while working as a designer for my hometown coffee shop, Barefoots Joe. The Kernal's music embraces old Country and Americana roots, so I created a poster that referenced that classic spirit, as well as the Kernal and I's Tennessee roots, with a Hatch Show Print inspired design.
Identity and website created for photographer, Haaken Reed. When discussing with Haaken what he wanted in a logo, we both agreed to try and avoid overused icons that normally come with the territory when creating a logo for a photographer. Inspired by diagrams explaining the process of how a lens works, an icon abstracting "light through the lenses" was created.
In addition to the identity, Haaken is also expanding his web presence, and wanted a website that matched his new identity. I created a clean look that puts emphasis on the photography, and allows Haaken to proudly show the photos he has taken for his clients.
Identity and collateral created while working at Union University. Focus is the orientation program for incoming freshman and transfers to Union. Visually, I worked to put a new spin on and capture the energy of a event like Focus, while also not drifting too far from the identities of the previous years.
Goldfish on Wheat
Identity and visual overhaul for Goldfish on Wheat, the blog of photographer and writer Josh Garcia.
Identity, collateral, and proposed web redesign for Barefoots Joe, a coffee shop and venue.
Named after a former President of Union University, Dr. Hyran Barefoot, I created the identity as a way to pay homage to Dr. Barefoot as well create a new flexible logo mark. Dr. Barefoot was notorious for always wearing a bow tie, and even bought bow ties for the staff of Barefoots Joe. My concept was based around bow ties; which played out in several fun ways, such as using a die cut window in the business card to allow some one to "wear" a bow tie.
In addition to print collateral, I had the opportunity to hand craft physical objects: a menu board, a listening station for featured musical artists, and traditional light-up signage that displayed the logo.
