RSM CLASSIC

RSM CLASSIC

  This invitation, LGA designed for the RSM Classic held every year at Sea Island. It is a beautiful event in an amazing place and we wanted that feel to match the invitation. We sourced boxes that had the look and feel of Seagrass and Driftwood to allude to the location and sealed the boxes with a golf tee for good measure. The booklet that accompanied the invitation features the golf courses of Seaside and Plantation in blind emboss and the headline is a silver foil. The invitation features the…

Project 543

Project 543

  Project 543 tells the story of unique spots across North Carolina we hope will become some of your favorite places. Why 543? Because that’s the number of miles from Manteo to Murphy and is traditionally considered to be the width of our state. Here are some of my favorites from the first couple months of the blog that worked on at LGA. The goal is to design 543 entries that feature the entire state.     Featured in Garden & Gun this month in the Southern Bucket List section….

The Stitched House

The Stitched House

The Stitched House is a great new business started by Christy Parbst. She has started to teach young ladies the art of sewing, something that a lot of people have forgotten. She holds classes for all ages and will do parties and events too. The logo and business cards I helped develop needed to be fun and warm — and resonate well within the space of the sewing world. The mark could be made by hand and uses colors that can be found in felt or different fabrics. The hand…

NC Tourism Identity

NC Tourism Identity

This is a project that doesn’t come along that often, a chance to help brand your home state and develop a logo.

The typeface was developed with Sun Segura at T26 type foundry. This is a video we used to help with the soft launch for Governor’s conference and NC’s partners.

Recovering the Classics

Recovering the Classics

This was a fun opportunity to work with the Creative Action Network. If you aren’t familiar, CAN takes on different creative initiatives that range from political statements to pro bono causes. Their latest is to take on the average book covers that exist in the world of public domain. A lot of these classics are sadly lost to new readers because of the lack of attention put into their covers. So CAN paired with Harvard Press to challenge designers to redesign their favorite book covers. Here are three that I designed…

MAKING TRACKS

MAKING TRACKS

      I get a chance to work on this project every year with my client ATD. Each year I try to take a fresh approach with it. This year we wanted to show how ATD has become a huge force from the East Coast to the West and that their service and delivery is beyond compare. The cover was developed with HacJob out of Wisconsin using CGI and retouching. They also produced a handful of illustrations throughout the magazine. 2011 Here’s a little bit of the process involved…

Charlotte ADDY Awards

Charlotte ADDY Awards

This year LGA was asked to work with AAF Charlotte to help promote the local annual ADDY show. I worked with Margaret Bond and came up with the creative for the show. We also worked with the AAF to determine how and where the show would be. We toured a lot of the venues in Charlotte and found none nicer and more beautiful that the new Mint Museum Uptown. This helped add to our concept. We think that Art Directors and Copywriters have to go through a lot to create…

ATD Identity

ATD Identity

American Tire Distributors decided it was time to renew there logo and identity. They are a long-time client of LGA and I have worked with them for years, so I was excited to get a chance to develop something that was fresh and a bit more modern. We also got a chance to redesign their trucks an integral part of their identity that is probably the most visible. Below is a small piece of the work I designed or art directed. The New mark. A few sketches from the process….
