I’ve been caught up with various graphic design projects lately, which has eaten into my writing time a little. The creative tables are constantly turning between text and visuals, but that’s just how I roll. I wanted to share something I’ve been working on, a logo design featuring custom-made artwork and lettering.

This logo was so much fun to make, and I’m quite happy with how it turned out. I love anything that has a dash of tongue-in-cheek. The chicken is from a small design project at my day job. Rather than let my disgruntled chicken go to waste I figured I’d showcase it.

I listened to a playlist of mellow music while making this. It seems that movie soundtracks and smooth beats work well with my visual-creative half. Choice tracks include:

Flight, by Lycoriscoris. Beautiful ambient beats.
Princess Margaret, by Lorne Balfe and Rupert Gregson-Williams (from TV show The Crown)
Fireisland, by Aly & Fila and Solarstone, from Quiet Storm. I also love the Uplifting Mix of this track, which you can find here.

I am available for freelance work right now, so drop me a line if you need a logo or business card design, or a book cover!
