Aqua Clan Logo
2018 Logo Design
This design for Aqua Clan of North Carolina was inspired by the trident of Poseidon. I incorporated a water droplet to emphasize their mission to keep our waterways clean, and I chose to reflect that in both the shape of the trident's prongs and the water droplet itself. The clean and open font for "aqua clan" is simple yet elegant, communicating calm balance.
FloLogic: Instructional Booklet
2018 Layout Design
For this project, I designed a fresh, clean layout from scratch in InDesign for FloLogic's new CONNECT App User Guide. All of their branding had recently changed, so I made sure to incorporate their new brand and identity through the use of color in paragraph styles and section headers, an airy sans serif typeface, and a lighter, more open layout. I also created the line illustrations for the equipment, which was used in both the booklet and in the accompanying instructional video (which I also created! Coming soon on my video page!)

ClearBlue Waters: Pool and Spa logo
2013 Logo Design
 This was a collaboration between myself and Erika Gibson for ClearBlue Waters of Greenville, NC. The owner wanted a re-design of his old logo, so Erika took point with concept design while I refined the vector art and offered creative suggestions along the way.

This was the original logo that the owner wanted us to re-design.
The final re-design.

I designed for both print and web, including (but definitely not limited to) logos, business cards, letterheads, magazine ads, retail literature, and web banners.
