I’ve gotten a few nibbles over the years inquiring about purchasing the rights to use my Beehive Hair Salon logo. Apparently it shows pretty high when you google “Bee Logo,” probably thanks to its popularity on Pintrest. Since it wasn’t created with a specific client, I’ve been willing to sell the rights, but the planets have never really aligned until recently.
About half a year ago I was again approached about it, and it was finally sold to a small business just starting up in Wisconsin called Honeycomb Salon Collective. They opened in late October, and here is how their designer ended up using it!
Business cards, social media presence, coupons, it’s pretty exciting to see this thing everywhere. I hope to get some better pictures soon from their designer (especially of the inlay on the receptionist’s desk). I nabbed these from their Yelp page.
Here’s a cool little project I got to work on earlier in the year, but have just recently received pictures of it. It’s a type mosaic of a bunch of biking trails near a little hotel called Moab Flats. I think there were five different color schemes, to match the unique decor of each flat.
Moab Flats is a mom-and-pop small business offering luxury lodging in Moab, Utah. You can check out their beautiful website here. I also got to work with them on their logo.
This year I got to design the label that went on the company Christmas gift (although I couldn’t say “Christmas” on the label, of course). I went ahead and did some custom script, because I feel like any designer in their right mind does custom type whenever they can!
You can check out the sketch I posted on Dribbble. The digital version stayed pretty much the same (other than some alignment/sizing issues and other small tweaks).
Hope everyone has a great holiday season!
Tonight was the fifth Under The Radar talk with AIGA Austin, with Trina Bentley of her own Make & Matter (also check out her great blog here). She a local designer who does fantastic, very clean package design.
She’s one of those people who’s funny without even trying, so her talk was educational, inspirational, and amusing. And she was a delight in person after the talk.
This is how you know you’ve made it… seeing your work, printed on a pastry.
Apparently local Austin bakery Hey Cupcake is making the rounds to media companies today! We got all seven stations as tiny little cupcakes.
Thanks for the sweets, guys.
I’ve been hearing about this since 2011… I’m pretty excited to finally attend this event, and holy heck it already sold out yesterday. Hopefully I’ll see y’all out there in 2015!
Here are some things that I made for a Día De Los Muertos themed art auction that I’m participating in tomorrow. I posted some process shots on Dribbble; research and sketch phase.
You can see larger images on my portfolio site; I took some scans before framing them.
Here’s a snapshot of what one of them looked like before color (click to view it larger). I kept it simple; line art with three colors of ink.
Never really done any work concerning this holiday before. There’s some beautiful stuff out there related to DDLM. And I saw Book of Life (nicely done, Reel FX) last night! It’s been a very thematic week.
Also, Happy Halloween!
