I’m usually not a huge fan of staged photography, but the shot on the cover of this book is absolutely stunning. My favorite part of this collection of photos is how it captures what it feels like to be in this part of North Carolina. Blueish grey skies, thin damp air, and lots of quiet.

Font choice was my first consideration when making this logo. Readability is especially important when considering an audience with limited vision. I chose the Gotham typeface because of its large counters and simple design.

Green is the color of life. We equate green with growth, health, and renewal. DCSL offers a chance at t afresh experience to an audience that doesn’t often get a chance to try something new. The aim of using green is to evoke feelings of fulfillment and rejuvenation.

Health, friendship, and personal fulfillment are the promise that DCSL offers. I believe that those are all achieved largely in part because of the community that it offers. This is what I am trying to illustrate with the acronym’s design. I chained the letters together to symbolize unity, serving as a metaphor for the DCSL community.

I put this logo together for a friend in college who was starting a dog walking business. The only guidelines for the logo were that it had to be text based, and they preferred orange. I chose the font because I wanted something fun and relaxed, and so that I could work the paw print into the B. I added the wavy division between in the letters to convey a sense of motion.
