Here is a logo I came up with recently for a local co-op that is getting going in Boise. I originally had a cityscape in the background. Originally I had a little inspiration from Russian propaganda type posters. I wanted bold shapes and colors as well as more industrial san-serif fonts. Also fun side note I was the one who came up with the name "Underground Produce" for the company. I like the way it turned out.
We were practicing caricatures in my Illustration class the semester I made these it was around the same time I combined Keith Richards with a lion. (my first blog post) The reason Keith Richards was combined with a lion was because of his hair. There is no association with bravery or leadership or something like that that lead me to choose a lion besides his hair. These I wanted to wait to post to my Blog. I really feel as though they turned out well and I don't mean much mockery with this: the combination of the person with a monkey. There were certain things as arbitrary as Keith Richards hair that lead me to chose a monkey. (plus then I got to draw my running banana)
This is an ESH poster I did to show that the ESH Adventure Company does custom chalk bags with recycled and repurposed materials. I love the way this poster turned out. The grid of the clothing and the "cut-out" of the chalk bag in the material, I think, was a great way to visually communicate their philosophy. It is hanging at Urban Ascent climbing gym and some other locations around town.
I designed the ESH Ambassador shirt. I got inspiration for the design from my heavy hands sketches. Perhaps heavy hands are good for bouldering? So he's hanging off the crux move of the climb leading it's way to the ESH logo. I think it turned out nice.
I decided to redo the conference cover. The top was the original layout and I chose to rework the text placement and colors to better compliment the illustrated background (bottom image). I think it looks pretty good. I like the color changes and it doesn't feel like it covers the background like it kind
of did before.
