The Buckhorn Bar badly needed a new logo. They had been using low-resolution clip art (graphic designer cringe!), and it wasn’t working for larger posters, sweatshirts, signage…or just in general. I gave them a clean, crisp new logo that kept the feel of the northwoods. It was inspired by an actual deer mount in the bar, right down to the nontypical antlers!
The small town of Gordon, WI takes extreme pride in their tradition of a stellar fireworks show and other 4th of July events. However, their logo changed each year and really wasn’t so stellar…usually a combination of clip art. It didn’t reflect the tradition and their pride in the 4th of July festivities. I created something with a vintage feel to capture the tradition, combined with more refined firework graphics to serve as a badge of sorts for the town’s events. If you ever get a chance, check out their fireworks show…it really is awesome!
