Like many high schools, Kankakee Valley used a number of different logos and wordmarks to represent themselves. They wanted an identity that was modern, bold and most of all cohesive. Below are a handful logos that I created for the new KVHS Kougars identity, including a secondary mark that will be used with their basketball team.
Recently, I participated in the Fuse Sessions Sport Branding Workshop with Joe Bosack. During the workshop Joe guided us through a quick history of sport branding, his professional experience and gave us some great information on how to concept and design sport identities.
For the workshop, I chose to create a new an identity for a new MLS Expansion team in Nashville. The final mark was inspired by Nashville's music scene, printing/letterpress studios and the Gateway bridge. The color scheme was pulled from the neon signs that line Broadway.

Chef Dyke Michaels of BEAST food-truck came to me to create a new logo for his new culinary video series, SMASH Indy.
Over the last few months Lodge and I have had the opportunity to create a mascot from scratch! Brackets for Good came to us with the mission to create their perfect MVP. Champ. A mascot that embodies charitable giving, and who's sole mission is to encourage philanthropy all across the USA. With the help of Avant Garb in Indianapolis, we we're able to bring him to life with a complete physical costume!
Yesterday the United States lost one of our greatest heroes. John Glenn was one of the original seven Mercury astronauts. He set the transcontinental speed record, flying from LA to NYC in 3hrs 23mins. In 1962 he piloted the Friendship 7 and became the first American to orbit Earth. He served as a United States Senator for 4 terms. During his last term as senator, at the age of 77, he became the oldest man to go back to space.
John Glenn was always a hero of mine growing up. Getting the opportunity to watch him go back to space when I was 8 will be something I'll always cherish. His sense of curiosity inspires me each and every day. Rest in Peace.
While in the process of creating all 30 teams for my Marvel/NBA Logo Mashup Project the Sacramento Kings unveiled a brand new identity. The Latveria Doom was my original take on the Kings logo before I updated it to fit their current identity.
I got my start in Adobe Illustrator by drawing different people with the pen tool. I hadn't done a portrait in a while so here's me!
Indiana is turning 200 this year. Here is a little lockup to honor our bicentennial!
Before I launched my new identity and site I had explored the idea of completely committing to sports design. Here is an initial idea for a completely new brand created just for my sports work.
In March of 1984 the Baltimore Colts packed up in the middle of the night and headed towards their new home, Indianapolis. This is an unused t-shirt idea.
These are logos for fictional sports teams, the UFOs and the Hounds.
I just wanted to welcome you to my new blog. Here you'll find random work that I have no better place to put. Unused work from various clients, as well as various personal projects.
