Probably my favorite thing to do in the world is design a logo. Taking a concept and condensing it down to a simple and easily identified execution is a welcomed challenge.
I do freelance logo work on a weekly if not daily basis. I love it. If I don't have a project going on, I am probably thinking of proposing one to someone someplace. To see some recent marks and concepts visit my dribbble page.
Just about all of these logos made companies, events or causes look more professional, however, one or two in there were concepts only and didn't make the final cut.
Each of the following logos and marks had a thought behind their creation. To see a good example of the thought I like to put into each mark I create, see the jackson motorsports page.
