This is a logo completed for the Phergie project. Phergie is an IRC bot written in PHP. It is software that can be used to handle automation and other communication tasks within the Internet Relay Chat network. This project was completed pro bono and as an exercise in logo design. This was completed part time so the project spanned a little over a month with a vacation and some minor communication with the client. The logged work time was roughly 10 hours.
The focus for this logo was the technical nature of the Phergie project combined with statements of diversity. Phergie is an autonomous bot that can respond to chat users, so it has a feminine nature, yet this project is also supported by PHPWomen.org to promote more women in the PHP programming communities. The final logo is an attempt to show the technical and feminine aspects of the Phergie project with respect, professionalism, and some whimsy. The Phergie logo uses a digitally drawn image combined with the Midiet typeface by Yasuhiro Yamaoka.
The Blackhorse Association is a non-profit organization made up of previous members of the 11th Calvary Regiment of the U.S. Army. The organization focuses on the scholarship, support, and commemoration of the duty it’s members and family have made as part of the 11th Calvary. This website is focused on communication with the members . related organizations, and the public. The Blackhorse Association uses this website to collect donations for operating expenses and scholarships that are offered to the families of fallen members of the 11th Calvary Regiment.
This website will never be finished for me, and it is annual contract with the Blackhorse Association. I hope to have a better revision soon because I feel the illustration and design were completed too quickly. The website uses WordPress for content management with a custom theme using the Funbox theme framework. The Blackhorse Association website uses a WordPress e-Commerce plugin to process and track donations to the scholarship and operating funds.
The Loose Caboose Coffee House in Monroe, Louisiana as owned and operated by my roommates. I even had a small percentage stake in the coffee house, and help out from time to time. Most of my assistance came in the form of creating cleaned up logos, newspaper ads, fliers, and maintaining the Loose Caboose web site.
This was another project where I worked on the final production. The original book design was by Jennifer Anderson and I was asked to set up the final files for print. There were a couple of special pages using velum and spot colors that required some special production work.
Southern Voices was a publication highlighting a collection of entries into an annual writing competition for the Cedar Creek School in Ruston, Louisiana.
This was a quick logo done for a collective group of Ruston, Louisiana based musicians. It was just a very quick logo to help them promote their gigs as a collective group comprised of two normally separate bands. This was completed sometime in 1994 while I was still enrolled at Louisiana Tech.
Inspiration was the center label for classic blues vinyl records. This is the color version. The logo was mostly used in black and white for fliers.
