Great to see your ad here Jeff.

Folks our company has been using Jeff to do our graphics work for some time. He's done our new logo for us and several ads that we run in trade magazines. He's also done graphics work for catalogs that we send out to all the hospitals in the US. His work is top notch and Jeff is a pleasure to work with. :)

I just wanted you all to know that I "hired" Jeff to do the logo for my guitar business. He did an AWESOME job at a reasonable price. Lots of extras too because of my needs for several variations of the logo for different purposes.  Need a new Logo? Jeff is Da man!

CHeck it out !



Thanks Jeff!

Jeff did my logo design for my personal site. He spent the time and made what I wanted for a reasonable price.

This is what Radar67 first described and the drawing he did.

"Picture a log with a slab taken off the top, the bandsaw blade making a second cut. A short distance past the bandsaw blade, the log changes to a board, like it is pushing it's way out of the end of the log. In the board, there is a saw blade cutting a kerf from the forward end like it's being pushed through a table saw. The board morphs into a table or bench with a wooden bowl and pen resting on the top.
 
I'm looking for a line type drawing similar to what wood burning would look like. Black and shades of grey for the "color". I have a rough sketch I could scan if it would help."

 


And this is the drawing I came up with for him.

Today an old client requested a new logo. I've been working with a company called Pro Hood for many years. He makes hunting hoods and hooded jackets. He has just started into a new market creating jackets for the Biker crowd. He wanted a new spereate logo to reflect that market to put on t-shirts and stuff.

You can see the old logo I made a few years ago at www.prohood.com (hes also having a sale on his remaining inventory, only large left)

This is what the new logo looks like. He had the idea of pipes and flames, and I took it from there.

You do great work Jeff.  I wish I would have stumbled upon this article before I shelled out all the money I did for my logo and I created it myself for the most part, they just cleared it up for me.

I may need to talk to you about websites also.  Stay tuned

We went and played darts last night, and my team played a team named the "Dart Broads." They had been admiring the logos I had made on some of the other team's shirts so I offered to try to come up with something for them. I woke up at two in the morning with a "vision" of what it should look like.  I used to do that when I was painting too. 2:00 am is my most creative time. Always has been for some reason. Weird eh?   Anyhow, below is pretty much the image I had in my mind when I woke up.

Today I was requested to take the image below and make it bigger as this was the only electronic copy of a logo they needed bigger. Not knowing what it was, the first one I did the character was not acceptable, because I did not know he was a "Car Doctor", I didn't make him a doctor.  I got it right the second time.  :)

First image is what I was sent to work with in it's actual size, the second one is the first draft which I got wrong, the third and forth are the final images back to the client. :)

Tammy and Stacy are going to a State Dart Tournament this next week and wanted something new to put on their team shirts along with thier team logo to show the Forestry Forum, as last year they ran into several teams that worked for different logging outfits. So, I threw this together for them last night.
