I am pleased to announce I've been chosen as Featured Designer on the LogoLounge blog this month. It's quite an honor considering how many wonderful and talented designers are contributing to the LogoLounge series of design books all the time. You can catch my interview with Dorothy Ayon on the blog.
Here's a new logo illustration project I completed for San Jacinto College, located in East Harris County, Texas. There are three campuses, each with its own rather established sports mascot. The assignment from their agency Whole Wheat Creative, was to help create a cohesive look and illustrative mascot style to the group of new logos, complete with custom typography and ligatures to be emblazoned on their newly updated uniforms. This was a particularly challenging project as there were many individuals with separate ideas, needs and opinions on how these designs should be handled. After several rounds of sketches and type explorations, here are the final results. Also included is a script direction, primarily for the baseball/softball uniforms that was not used in the final deliverables, but was fun and challenging to design.
Just received word that a number of my logo designs will be included in the new LogoLounge Masters Library Volume 2 coming out some time next year.
I am very excited about the recognition of such a prestigious collection of logo work from around the world. There will be approximately 24 pieces appearing in the volume entitled, Animals & Mythology. The book will be available from Rockport Publishers. These are the winning entries.
Some of you logo design fans have probably already scoped out the new Logo Lounge 4 (Rockport Publishers). This is the latest in the Logo Lounge series of design books—and I might add, every one of them is excellent. The level of work is superior and the logo design is nothing short of inspirational.
So, of course finding out that I had a handful of pieces selected for the latest edition was definitely a shot in the arm and a good reason for taking a two hour lunch!
Anyway, here are the selected works. Hope you like them. By the way, I have a collection of other logos that were in the previous editions: LogoLounge 2 and LogoLounge 3. They are listed under my other identity, Hubbell Design Works. You can also check out their website at: www.logolounge.com
