Three Creek Ranch
Founder of GSDM, Steve Gurasich owns a ranch in Briggs Texas. He approached Zócalo Design, the design studio I worked for at the time in search for a sign that was clean, simple and felt like Texas. The result, a bold and masculine logo with some subtle Texas symbols that can easily be made into a metal or wood sign.
Able City is an urban architecture company based in San Antonio Texas. Integrating "able.city" was a must. It plays into the idea that their websites url is "able.city". To bring in a bit more concept the "a" is made into the shape of a ping, like you would see on a map on any device.
Viola came to me in the early years of my design carrier. She desperately wanted something that could fit the entirety of her business name while being unique. Being that VLL is a brand for children the use of friendly type and a custom hand lettered logo not only makes it inviting to its target audience, mothers, it also brings in Violas personality.
E + E Fitness
Becky owner and founder of the East Austin gym, E and E Fitness, wanted to stand out from the rest of the businesses in the neighborhood. The intention behind this logo was to convey a feeling of energy and balance.
Órale is my first branding system as a designer. However, it has now morphed into a side project that is soon to be launched in the summer 2018. As a Mexican I have always been fascinated by Mexican slang. Like much of the slang in Mexico, the word órale has several meanings. In this case it expresses excitement and approval. Indicating that something is awesome.
