My most recent logo design. The logo is for Palenscar Building and Remodeling. This is for a contractor that specializes in high end remodeling. Christopher Palenscar can build and remodel kitchens, livingrooms, and other home projects. The client wanted a subtle and elegant logo to reflect the work that he does.

Moxy Creative. It is a fun take on these movies. They are very simple but that is the trick. You are immediately attracted to these posters. I don't think I have ever seen movie posters quite like these. For more posters do to their site, you will be there for awhile.

Cambridge Symphony Orchestra. I have been designing this brochure for three years. They have added new and very elegant photos. They wanted to have a more sophisticated color scheme and look to the brochure. I am continuing the look and branding I established three years ago. I just ramped it up a bit. I also feel the new photos do add a new level of sophistication.

I was was trying to be more stylized with drums and drumsticks without looking like a weber grill. My client expressed an interest in using blue as a main color. After looking at these proposed logo, he has asked me to use my judgement in adding in other colors. The next round will be refining some of the looks that he likes and adding in some new colors.
It has been fun to work with all these circles and lines. The second round this week.

Sometime ago, I posted a story about seeing a postcard and poster exhibit at the Boston Public Library. I was able to see the Greetings from Boston and the Vintage Travel Poster exhibit. I used to send postcards probably up until my early thirties. Now with all the technology we have now, postcards are not as popular. I do get a few here and there from friends traveling. Some of the subjects seem so funny to us now. Why would you send a postcard of a baby hippo?
I like the bottom postcard, I used to work at Symphony Hall and it pretty much looks the same as when it was built. Actually this view is same as it is now except for the age of the cars and the little bit of neon in the background.

The Dedham Junior Woman's club asked me to design a logo for them. I am also, a member of this civic organization. A bunny was suggested because of the history of Dedham Pottery. It has become a symbol of the town. I decided to give them some choices of a stylized bunny and some alternative ideas. I was looking for something that symbolized our group and what we do as an organization. The club awards scholarships, works to help people in need, and other worthy causes. We narrowed it down to three and then we all voted on a final logo, that will be posted tomorrow.
