Early last week I was contacted by Justin, who was starting up his own remodeling/construction business called Castlerock. He contacted me to create a logo for his new company, and he had some good ideas in mind. After going back and forth with him, looking at some samples, and figuring out what he was looking for, this is what we came up with. I think it’s a very professional, clean logo that should serve well in many different medias. It was great to work with Justin, and I hope to do so again in the future.
As I announced a few days ago, I am interning with the Kentucky Xtreme (an professional indoor football time in Louisville). I will be posting a lot of the work I do for them here, so I hope you enjoy it. Here is a schedule poster I did that will be printed 17×11 and distributed around town and at the stadium. Also attached is a FaceBook cover photo I did for the team page, which you can follow here.
I am happy to announce that this coming season I will be a graphic design intern for the Kentucky Xtreme. The Xtreme are a professional indoor football team in Louisville that are part of the CIFL. They play their home games at Freedom Hall and will host 6 games this season, starting in February. I am excited to be part of the team, and I look forward to helping the team promote and grow in the area. Here is the first piece I did for them, a wallpaper featuring a stylized version of the logo. Visit the teams website to view the schedule, the roster (several former UofL players), and ticket information. It is a very exciting brand of football, and I look forward to seeing you all at games this season.
RIver City Craft Wear is a Louisville based clothing company that focusing on apparel for those of you that enjoy a cold beer on occasion (often). I’ll let Ryan (the founder) explain the company more by posting a blurb from their site, but I’ll take a second to explain the wallpaper. Basically, I turned the Louisville skyline into beer, what more could you ask for right? RCCW has a great logo, so that is the focus of the design. Take a second to check out their website, purchase a few awesome shirts, and represent a local up and coming business on your desktop.
Welcome to River City Craft Wear!
Our goal is to bring you the highest-quality apparel and goods to show off your love for locally-brewed and micro-brewed craft beer. The idea for RCCW started after a local beer festival when we decided we wanted to be able to wear something that stands out while walking from booth to booth sampling beers and munching on pretzel necklaces.

I have recently come across a company, 44 Pro Gloves, that I wish was around when I played baseball. They create custom gloves at a reasonable price, and their customer service is unmatched. I have heard nothing but good things about the quality of their gloves, and may order one in the near future. If you are looking for a baseball/softball glove, 44 is definitely worth checking it. They allow you to completely customize your glove, complete with embroidery of your choice. To say “thank you” for the great customer service I’ve seen them give to people, and for offering quality gloves at a good price, I decided to make this wallpaper for them. Check out their site, their online glove builder, and get you some new leather.
The past few years I’ve had the opportunity to work with the Harrison County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, and I had that opportunity again this year. The group focuses on keeping drugs out of the community, this year focusing on prescription drugs. I created an ad for a local magazine that is published annually, and this is the result.
Last night I did my first studio photo shoot, and thought I’d share a few of the pictures. The shoot was for a project in my studio lighting class, and I had to utilize 4 different lighting styles; broad, short, rembrandt, and butterfly. The following are the results, plus a few other shots that I just liked. Thanks for looking, I hope to be posting more pictures in the near future.
If you have followed my work over the years, you probably know that Terrence Williams is one of my all time favorite Cardinals. When he was drafted 11th overall, I was excited to see him make a name for himself in the NBA. As I’m sure you all know, things didn’t go as planned for Williams, as he ended up jumping from team to team and eventually ending up in China. After having a successful year over seas, Williams has been given another chance in the league with the Boston Celtics. He made his Celtics debut last night against the Lakers, and played well in limited minutes. With just a 10 day contract in Boston it isn’t known how long Williams will be there, but I’m going to rock this wallpaper until something changes.
I’ve had the opportunity in the last few weeks to work on a few projects, that I thought I’d share.
The first was for Greenwell Plumbing. It is a shirt they will be wearing at their booth at the 2013 Home and Garden Show. The booth will feature a game similar to cornhole, where the visitors will toss a bean bag into a (hopefully empty) toilet.
The other project I work on was for a friend of mine who recently became an insurance agent with American Family Insurance. We wanted to put together a card that would be both professional, and also stick out in a crowd. I used the color scheme from the American Family logo to give the card some pop, and used the same font to give it some continuity.
