logo for Hair Flow Salon
Logo for Hair Flow Salon
Designed for a upscale hair salon in Gilbert, Arizona, the corporate name of Hair Flow, LLC, certainly caused some design challenges, as I didn't want "hair flow" to in any way cause people to think of that vacuum cleaner haircutting device, the Flowbee. By putting a graphic of flowing hair behind the name, adding the word "salon", using a modern sans serif font with rounded corners, and adding a curly line beneath the word "flow", the name now works as a logo.
logo for Sun Valley Patio Door Service
Logo for Sun Valley Patio Door Service
When I originally created a website for Sun Valley Patio Door Service back in 2004, there was no existing logo, and the website was a no-frills, "I need a web presence" website, which did the job, tremendously, for many years. But 11 years later, this website really needed a facelift, as did the logo. The new website is still just one page, but the client loves this new logo and wants to have this brighter, friendlier logo replicated on t-shirts, etc.
travel brochure
Full-Color Tri-Fold Brochure
Designed for a travel agent specializing in trips to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico, the goal was to cause people viewing the brochure to immediately want to visit the Sonoran town on the Sea of Cortez. I was supplied with photos to use, as well as text, and used Adobe InDesign to create a layout that was pleasing to look at, while allowing the text to appear to flow naturally, for both the English and the Spanish versions.

Point-of-Purchase Display Piece

Click here to see the original POP piece. The actual size of the final piece is 18″ wide x 15.25″ tall.
Sofa assembly directions, English, Spanish and French
Sofa Assembly Directions in English, Spanish and French
This was a challenging project, as I had to take some very rough drawings from the client's engineering department and a single photo of the finished product, and turn them into very precise drawings and easy-to-follow written assembly instructions for the consumers. The detailed drawings were done in CorelDraw. After finishing the English copy, I found professional translators to provide the translations to French and Spanish. Click here to see page 2 of the 4-page brochure; page 3; and page 4. The actual finished/folded size of this piece is 8.5″ wide x 11″ high.
