Client: Josh Taylor (singer/songwriter)

Objectives: To create a series of graphics that can be used as promotional ads for various live performances.

Taylor needed graphic artwork that would reflect his mainstream, radio-friendly style. To reflect Taylor’s style-characteristics, treated photography combined with handwritten and simple sanserif display fonts were selected as the consistent elements throughout the series of graphics. The above graphic was used as an 11×17 poster.

Josh Taylor Logo

Client: Josh Taylor Band

Objectives: To create an identity for a popular, local singer/songwriter.

Details: Josh Taylor Band, known for their spin on popular covers and original pop/rock songs needed a logo and business cards that would reflect their mainstream, radio-friendly style. The logo was designed to appear as a guitar pick with a modified version of Taylor’s signature on it. The font face, drawn from scratch, is a hybrid grouping of calligraphy elements and handwritten serif fonts. The business cards were constructed by combining distressing techniques, photographic elements, and typography.

McKinnley Street Pub

Mckinnley Street Pub

Client: The McKinley Street Pub

Objectives: To update an outdated identity for a popular
college bar in Lafayette, Louisiana after a change in ownership.

Details: The bar has used an Irish theme since it has been open. I was asked to keep that theme yet update it into an aesthetically- pleasing solution. Research for this mark included  investigating the previous McKinley Street Pub artwork, numerous beer labels, and  analyzing other bar logos around town.
