lets explore… YY Records

alright lets explore the logo process and treatments that lead to what is now the yellow year records music label logo. this project was commissioned by Prefuse himself and had a pretty tight deadline. thanks to my long time friend daphne for referring me as a solution in his ever search for a brand identity.

there was a second and third round on the focus of a few from the sheet. and ultimately all came down to the first logo at the top left. was a fun project for me. i hope it will go a long ways for them!

First logo of my career

Alright so i thought this might be an interesting entry. .. first ever commissioned logo was for producer / director.. Mr. Steve Vanasco…. whom now is widely known famous photographer @vanstyles and brand owner of V/SUAL Apparel. Crazy right? in the past few years he’s reinvented himself and is doing beyond well for himself through his art and brand. Its good to see how far he’s gotten.


Anyway, this logo was created in 2004. 10 years ago. completely inspired by Slum Village’s logo at that time. hahaha damn. his updated identity is obviously much better and current. dont judge me.

First time using pen tool

Heres a blast from the past. just got a new mac and illustrator. i wanted to trace and draw something. so naturally you teach yourself…


first time using illustrator pen tool and learning how to use curves. haha

peace to marie and trisha. and yes, i know theres the lame lens flare thing going on but dont judge me.

here we go

finally got some more current stuff up.. but something is still missing. doesn’t feel complete to me yet. for some reason this site is set up to only add up to 10 portfolio examples. which for some cases doesn’t fit all the work i’ve done for the client. also haven’t really figured out how i should showcase media projects i’ve done.. anyway this is all for another day. i hope at least i can keep this site up for a while. i chose to stop at 60 portfolio entries. im most likely going to change things again. ugh

anyway, heres something from the archives that i came across
Logo i made in 2011 for a non meat eating community project. although i eat meat. haha
