The Partnership of The Sounds Logo Family

If you've ever been to the Outer Banks in North Carolina, then you had to drive through Washington, NC to get there. Nicknamed the "Inner Banks," Washington, NC is home to flourishing waterways in addition to wildlife in the area like black bear, endangered red wolves and millions of migrating birds. Sounds pretty cool, huh? Well the problem for The Partnership for The Sounds was despite the myriad vacationers that pass through on their way to the beach, they whiz right by without stopping. Our mission was to establish The Sounds as a fun family destination and a break from the beach. We proposed giving a road map to the visitors as they traveled "The Sounds Discovery Loop" and created illustrative logos to mark the various stops along its route.

This work was fun for me for two reasons. First, I was able get out the old pencil and paper and illustrate  logos by hand, something I rarely have the opportunity to do. Secondly, this was one of my first projects I encountered after moving to Raleigh. This project was a great way to get introduced to North Carolina's landscape  and get out in the elements…something else I rarely do.

Sadly, this work was killed by the client, but it lives on here for all to enjoy. To view the logos in detail, click here.


Voice of Play Website Redesign

The Voice of Play website promotes the importance of play in the lives of children. Its goal is to increase the quality and quantity of children's play and educate parents on the many benefits of play, including the development of cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills. The website redesign includes the addition of the "Play Cafe Blog" where users can interact with each other and access the site's latest developments. Illustrations were created for each page combining families and children at play with outdoor elements.

Sign Typography

Came across this fun sign over the weekend while driving through Meyersdale, PA for the town's Maple Festival. As if the all-you-can-eat pancakes weren't enough, I came across this sweet sign for Donges Drive-In. Loved the typography and had to capture it with the Hipstamatic on my iPhone.
