Industry Experience

    uniE621 Legacy Farmers Branding and Logo Design
    https://www.twine.net/signin As common-sense laws sweep the nation, New Jersey gains a brand new dispensary with a local legacy! This high contrast brand captures the loudness of the market while the campfire icon remains soft and inviting. #branding #logo #graphicdesignerWW
    uniE621 CavedxMan Gaming
    https://www.twine.net/signin This brand's identity required a logo, page header, and facecam border. An illustration for this logo was a no-brainer since the success of games rely heavily on the graphics and interactive artwork. I felt that we needed to reflect the gamer tag into this brand while still contain subtle modern aspects. The first thing that came to mind was week one of Art History 101, early human cave paintings. The backgrounds contain cave art with PlayStation button symbols, as if early-man was gaming since the beginning of time. Helps to have a logo designer friend. #branding #illustrator #graphicdesigner #logo #gamerWW
    uniE621 Bolingbrook Lions: 2018 Soup Crawl
    https://www.twine.net/signin Patrons needed a soup trail map that also acted as their ticket and rate card packed into a folded one-sheet lanyard. This project started as a rebrand from a success fundraising event back in 2016. The people were shocked when 2017 came up dry, so they wanted to come back full steam ahead with a new face for the event. Restaurants, bars, and even a movie theater participated in the crawl. #graphicdesigner #illustrator #branding #logoWW
    uniE621 Cheesy Pretzel 5K
    When a 5K fundraiser for Heart Haven Outreach was in desperate need of a rebrand, they decided to go the extra mile. After so many years of reusing the same stale graphic of clip art runners, they really wanted to reach for an Octoberfest vibe that still appealed to families and serious runners. Thus, the illustrated mascots of a running pretzel and kiddie cheese cup was born. This event certainly transformed into "knot your average 5K"! Whether you're in it for the race or for the family fun 1 mile walk, there's a warm soft pretzel with hot gooey cheese waiting for you at the finish line! Which is the perfect carb snack after a 5K calorie burn in October. #Illustration #LogoDesign #Branding #RaceDayWW
    uniE621 Hive Five Honey
    https://www.twine.net/signin When this client at Bolingbrook Signs+Apparel had asked for honey jar labels, we first had to ask if he had logo. After we saw he was without a brand, having less than a week to churn out the labels and logo… we still had enough energy to illustrate the honey bee mascot, Benson! Enjoy! #local #honey #smallbusiness #logo #branding #graphicdesigner #illustrator #mascot #packagingWW
    uniE621 UNAVIDA Logo Design
    This workout guru found a way to tap into the at-home market, turning homebodies into beach bods. He needed a strong graphic mark that symbolized strength and power while also lending to his name brand "Omar". #branding #logo #designer #workout #healthWW
    uniE621 Bright Events - Kids Coloring Book
    https://www.twine.net/signin Bright Event Rentals hired a consulting agency for coloring book that showcases their furniture and party supplies for children.​ They had plenty of photographic content used in their catalogs, and they needed these images translated into line work for a coloring book. For the cover, we decided to add a coloring effect to the fill of their logo. This followed our hands-on approach since this was heavily stylized in a consistent rough sketch motif. Scanned ink drawings of the traced assets, and bundled this into a print-ready production file for a perfect bound coloring book. #illustrator #graphicdesigner #designer #coloringbookWW
    uniE621 The Little Day (COVID-19 Wedding Giveaways)
    https://www.twine.net/signin 2020 was rough, and certainly crushed plans for major events worldwide, but the goal of this wedding's brand was to show the silver lining of following COVID-19 state guidelines. With a reduced guest list (including only the wedding party and parents of the bride and groom), the finer things in life were made possible. The collateral created included patches for the wedding party apparel, etched wine bottles as take home gifts, as well as a fun can-coolie. #graphicdesigner #branding #illustrator #weddingWW
    uniE621 Chick-Fil-A (Franchise Owner)
    Building branded internal assets and teaching tools for management. #branding #graphicdesigner #designerWW
    uniE621 St. Huberts (THE STAG) Vineyard Box
    Packaging design for a vineyard. #branding #graphicdesigner #packagingWW
