As a designer I’m often finding myself dealing with color. I say dealing because it’s a big deal if it doesn’t match when printed and it feels like you have to make a deal with your computer just to make this happen. This post isn’t about getting around all of the hassle, but instead it’s converting from Hex to Pantone. Read More
The 2014 animal is the Mountain Gorilla. 1% of my 2014 revenue will be donated to support Mountain Gorilla Conservation. Throughout this year my logo will also feature an image of a mountain gorilla.
Thank you to all who provided some input for this year’s logo/endangered animal donation. Some options that came in were Snow Leopard, African Elephant, Sharks and Polar Bears. We’ll see what 2015 brings. After some thought I decided to focus on those animals that are critically endangered which is what brought me to my decision.
So while 2014 progresses and business ramps up, here are 10 Ways to Protect Mountain Gorillas.
Thanks again and hoping that 2014 is a great year!
I’m still in deliberations for this year’s logo, but I’ll have it live by next week. If you have any suggestions for endangered animals to support in 2014 please write me in the comments section.
I’ve been volunteering my graphic design and web skills to Give Back Cincinnati’s Fall Feast for the past 6 years. Now that it’s November again we’re kicking it into high gear and beginning our push beginning with coat drives and coffee stations. These flyers will be handed out this weekend to promote the event that will be held at the Duke Energy Convention Center on Thanksgiving morning.
I’ve been volunteering my design services to Give Back Cincinnati’s Fall Feast since 2008. I’m continuing this year with design for posters, flyers, website updates and marketing. I love the event and hope to continue my involvement.
Here’s a new poster for this year’s Coat Drive.
If you have an older coat or one (or more) you don’t wear anymore please consider donating to this year’s Coat Drive.
Additionally, why not plan on coming out for this year’s event on November 28th, Thanksgiving Day, at the Duke Energy Convention Center. The doors open at 10am. You can register to volunteer by going to fallfeast.org where we hope to have updated volunteer information soon.
My friend, Dean Lutton (of Reztark) and I worked with the Mt. Lookout Community Development Council a few years back to conceptualize a whole new square for Mt. Lookout. Yesterday as I drove through the square I saw our vision realized.
Always cool seeing your work out in the open like this. Hope you all like it.
Here are the original designs:
