THE PROCESS = THE PLAYOFFS
What a crazy few months we've had as Philly sports fans. A @philadelphiaeagles SB win, a 16 game win streak that propelled the @sixers into the 3rd seed of the @nba Playoffs, the @philadelphiaflyers currently at 1-1 in the first round of the @nhl Playoffs, and the @phillies becoming an exciting team to watch again. This is the energy that Philadelphia has been longing for.
On top of all this, the Sixers released an incredible brand they've been pushing for the last week. The mixture of the Liberty Bell and traditional snake are so perfect. It's a style that breaks the mold of your basic sports team logo while adding the grittyness that the city of Philadelphia exemplifies. I couldn't resist playing around with it in this piece.
I can't wait to see what the Sixers can do tonight in the first playoff battle this group will ever go through together. Who's with me in rooting them on?

CREATIVE BLOCK KILLER
I've been in the middle of a lot of "behind the scenes" projects and haven't had the time to post as often unfortunately. However, I've been randomly messing around with colors, textures and shapes to break up the hustle.
These quick, fast paced experiments are what add appreciation to graphic design. When you go into it not knowing what's going to happen, the element of surprise that a discovery creates is a feeling that can't be beat.
NEVER STOP EXPERIMENTING. NEVER STOP HUSTLING.

PHILLY FREERIDERS
I was stumbling through the archives and this little ray of sunshine caught my eye. It was created for a non-profit snowboarding club called Philly Freeriders and went unused. The weirdest part of this business is the amount of strong pieces that don't get love by clients. In this case, the customer wanted more options and fortunately we were able to find another logo that fit the PFR brand better that they were stoked on.
As a designer, every option has to be strong or you'll be pushed off to the side. I know that part of the job can be tiresome, but your art has your name on it and taking the extra steps necessary will always work out in the end. My favorite part of this strategy is the consistently growing collection of sexy gems like this one.

NATIONAL PUPPY DAY
Rye Bread, Rye Rye, Lil Riley. Those are all nicknames to a loyal, protective, no-bullshit pup. Most importantly, that pup is mine. Riley and I have been through a lot since 2015. 4 different apartments, a move from Lancaster, Pa to Philadelphia, many late nights together completing projects, and numerous adventures deep into the wilderness. It's been constant change for him, but time and time again he remains the same unfazed, playful pup he was when I first saw him at the SPCA. I'm glad he's been with me through all the extreme lows and highs this journey has brought. In dedication of him, here's a fun illustration I created✌️

JR SKETCH
The result of Sunday sketches turning into Monday motivation. No plan for this one yet but it came about while kicking it with the always inspiring @amongst_mountains this weekend. Still a lot of work to be done to this idea but stoked to figure out what's ahead. •

WOW
Huge shoutout to @thaddeusstevenscollege for featuring me in the latest edition of The Tower. Had a blast doing the interview and also representing @thaddeusstevensgraphics. I'm pretty damn speechless about seeing myself on a cover of a publication. All I can say is if you have a goal, make every big or small opportunity happen. You never know when that one little job can lead to greater things ahead.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
Happy Women's Day! I hope you enjoy this day of importance. Women should be treated with the upmost respect not just today but every chance you get. In celebration of today, us at @logowearhouse will be selling these WMN POWER shirts for $15 to support this cause and donate proceeds to @womenswayphilly. You can purchase these from the link in the bio of the Logowear House page.

Thanks goes out to all the powerful woman role models in my life. I especially thank my mother @lisaluu2 for showing me the ways to appreciate and respect woman the way everyone should.

CIRCLE CONCEPTS
Some minimal circle ideas I was playing around with. As you know, I'm a fan of the "less is more" mentality. The beauty in this approach is the high amount of avenues to be explored from here. Just adding one little feature to the right circle could set you up for an insanly successful logo. From colors, to patterns and to additional shapes, these concepts are the start of something big!

VICTORY LANE
Went from UNDERDOGS to TOPDOGS. I can't believe the Birds are finally Super Bowl Champs! It still doesn't feel real but here's the new @lanejohnson65 shirt to help this moment sink in! Just like the last shirts, these will also be sold to raise money for @fundphlschools online at lj65.shop this weekend.
As an Eagles fan since birth, there were times I never thought this day would come. It's even crazier that it's all going down within my first year of living in Philly. This beautiful city is about to have the celebration of a lifetime this Thursday. Hope to see you all out partying it up! Had a great time designing these projects. Thanks goes out to everyone who has reached out and shown their support, much love.

??QUESTION FOR CREATIVES??
On what platform do your artistic adventures begin? Do you start with pencil and paper, or straight to digital? Do you like to generate ideas in the comfort of your home, or surrounded by the fresh air of a solid hike? Everybody has different avenues they explore to generate new ideas.
For me, most of my logos begin within the beautifully gridded pages of @fieldnotesbrand notebooks. My sketches are quick and messy, yet just what I need to create an idea I was oblivious to 5 minutes prior. My favorite part about this process is that it can begin anywhere. I carry one of these bad boys on me wherever I go in case inspiration strikes. Whether it be on a street corner, park bench, coffee shop or bar the opportunity is always there when needed.
There are also times when I can start right on the computer as well. This usually happens while exploring old art boards from previous designs. When you do this with fresh eyes there's a good chance you my see something new in the old. Always save your work!!
Stoke to hear your guys thoughts on the topic. This question is for anyone who creates anything and trusts their own process.
