  • Morrocco Method International
  • November 9, 2018
    the gist: While scanning my archives, I came across logo work that I submitted to Morrocco Method for review earlier this year, and I was reasonably pleased with it, so I thought I would post here as well. The task was to design labels for a high-end Sea Salt Scrub targeted at the luxury exfoliant market. You'll find three examples through the icon link below.
    I opted for simple graphic choices consistent with a 'sea' theme and started with a gold/silver-based palette to convey luxury - adding purple to the mix as an alternative.

  • South County Historical Society
  • October 31, 2018
    the gist: I've engaged with the South County Historical Society of San Luis Obispo to revamp their logo and website. I have access to a photo library that is proving a great source for concept generation. I'm chasing visuals related to victorian architecture, lace, and picket fences, with an early 'rough' illustrated below.
    Color-wise, I'm inspired by the warm sepia tones in those same photographs, and I envision a complementary palette that mimics society offices in the restored Loomis Library. I will almost certainly need to simplify this conceptual draft, ha!
    website: forthcoming

  • SLOCO Food Bank
  • October 28, 2018
    update: The Food Bank has delayed implementaion of their rebranding effort until well into next year due to budget constraints, so it isn't clear when (or even if) my work in this space will see the light of day - disappointing, but a valuable learning experience.
