Been on a creative benge lately. my home friend Delron Young has been doing karoke at local clubs on here in NW Arkansas for years hoping to get noticed so he can go into music full time. I tell him one night while at Jose’s Pizzaria (a place i also did the signage for) you really need to put together a demo or something. I tell him I can produces and arange his music and also design his album cover.
We both agreed that “Careless Whipser” by Wham would fit his tenor range best. So i recorded it and made it free to the public! I think we’ll be able to get Del some gig’s in Southwest Mizouri by summer.
I’m excited because not only is he getting his big break but this i my first professional album cover art works! I used a photo taken by lightingfla and added my typeography work and personal flares. Checkout our bandcamp site to check out
Sory I’ve been gone so long. a year and change of computer problems and I back. Stupid XPS! I just can’t aforda a another Apple again. Anyways totally different subject matter for another days.
I’ve been working a real lot lately on rebranding. I think that’s the best way to get my name out there and would be a good basics for my Fantom Advertising Group Inc business. I’ve targeting several heavy hitting well know brands starting with McDaonal’s. There logo is alway just been a big yellow M. The arches done’t do any purpose. So I say to myself it’s time for #New McDonald’s Logo. Drop the arch but retain yellow and black (having something familiar helps the client fill more secure sometimes).
A mojor thing they were lacking in there logo was depth so i make sure to add that with some drop shadow and a spectered lens flare. I also use a more exotic font choice that will engage the viewer more. This font is call Papyrus (pronounced Pop-eh-russ). Giving it more pop i used a special emboss feature on photoshop (as Xisco calls it) and us a bend filter to give it more dimensionals.
next step is find out where McDonald HQ is and sell this logo to the owner Ray Crocker. I’ll keep you up stay tuned.
Now this logo pitch was done another lifefime ago in one of my previos job.This is a logo that i didnt excute my-self but was a Creation Director of. Todd the intern used the computer and Adobes programing to bring my creation to life.
It is like a couple years old but i think it’s still relavent for the times. Koolaid has used the same logo for ever and needed to change it up the for the new milineam. So my idea was to make it slicker than now an add more newance and symbalism. In fact the Koolaid Star is supposed to reparsent the joyfil spark of flavor in each packet. I showed the logo in red and green so you can seeing how it work in diferent colors.
I still think it’s delicios looking logo that woud be perfect for them however Koolaid shelfed the logo and said they woud use it at a later date. I don’t know where it is now. It coud be in the same where-house as the Ark of the Covnent for all I know. Maybe one day it will be used-fingers crossed.
Becase its black history month; I wanted to honor grate Africand-Amercans in a unique new way. So I thougt maybe i shoud make t-shirts and sell them to celibrate the festave ocassion. I just discovered about a site named Zazzle.com. i now know how to make a shirts, hoodies and many kinds apearal and sell them on-line!
Since he freed every Africand american in the world who better than to put on the shirt than Doctor Martin Luthar King Jr. The pic above is just a screan shot. It will be for sale after i get aprovle fromt the King istate to use that particuler image of Doctor King.
This is a song about road safety I make for Lil Watch it & Watch It Kids. I really think this will encourage kids to do the right thing in the way checking for cars before crosseing the steets.
