Logotype branding for Seams Weird Fabric Arts, an independent alterations and tailoring shop whose proprietress serves the GVRD. She has contributed costume work to “Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins” (2021), Disney productions such as “Under Wraps” (2021), and the latest season of the CW’s “Riverdale”.
She specializes in dark, occult and horror-themed imagery in her personal work and wanted a design to reflect that. I went with an ’80s “Paperbacks from Hell” horror paperback cover look and applied it to her embossed business card as well. The “Seams Weird” portion is original typography; no typefaces or fonts were used. The “Fabric Arts” portion is in Romic, a typeface seen in posters for Hellraiser and other media of the ’80s.
A revised (but perhaps not final) version of the logo for “Scarlet Vengeance”, one of my current projects. This gritty, retro piece combines existing typefaces with extensive modifications on my part and a handmade shiny chrome look. I have an immense amount of respect for ’80s airbrush artists because creating that distinctive chrome text is quite a challenge!
Logo and wordmark for a rising arts collective here in Vancouver. The client desired something simple and elegant with an urban flair, but broad enough to suit an organization that’s devoted to many different types of art. Many rounds of back-and-forth with the client narrowed the design down to this one.
Full on branding package (logo / logotype, business card, custom WordPress site) for the business of a talented lady, Jeanine Chau, who I’m proud to call a friend. Her operation is named for the Tom Waits song, so of course I had to include all kinds of Waitsian themes — burlesque girls, gambling, smoking, and of course guns. In true Waits spirit, I’m trying to capture the ferocious fun of an old-timey cabaret, suitable for an artist who does a lot of make-up for alternative events and noirish photo shoots.
I roped in my frequent collaborator Molly to provide the femme fatale illustration that I based the card design around. As always, she knocked it out of the park.
