Schooner's Seafood House

Logo Design St. Augustine, Graphic Design St. Augustine

Schooner's Seafood House is THE BEST restaurant in St. Augustine, Florida. Well, ok- we're very partial since they are family. Even still, they do have one of the best menus in town- stop in and see for yourself. We do every chance we get.

We combined some classic illustration sources with some stylish type design to create the familiar logo that represents hearty dinners from the bountiful sea. You can almost smell the salty sea air...

NUWAY Biodiesel Logo

Logo Design St. Augustine, Graphic Design St. Augustine

Award winning brand design from GO2 is available to all clients, big and small. We were very interested in this project as we are very supportive of new fuel and alternate energy resources.

The design represents the transformation from organic green source to the golden energetic burst of color. We also intentionally mixed in some classic (or old fashioned?) industrial style typographic design so the name could also stand alone without the icon in some applications. We rarely render a brand ID but in this case we made sure that this could be converted to flat art without redesigning.

Since our experience includes some industrial design, we are always thinking beyond the computer screen or drawing board.

Hemlock Hill Farm Logo

Logo Design St. Augustine

Hemlock Hill Farm is a long standing, working family farm in Westchester County New York. The DeMaria family took their farm online with a website we built for them. As a part of the overall design work we did, a logo was a main component. We worked closely with the client to deliver their vision, and were successful in making something that is warm and welcoming. See it in place on the Hemlock Hill Farm website.

Francke The Lyrical Yankee Logo

FLY stands for Francke The Lyrical Yankee. Our client is a "rhymer" and quite prolific in her writing and rhymes. She has recorded her own debut collection of original work and is actually quite different because she is a senior artist competing in a rather youthful arena. We believe she holds her own as a storyteller and an entertainer.

She chose the classic pen and the sword as symbols in her logo and we added a dash of a hip-hop grafitti style, featuring her favorite hot pink. She is always promoting and very in tune with the latest viral marketing vehicles including CD Baby, Cafe Press, and her own website/blog. See MoodExpressions.com and check her rhymes.

H2O Guard Logo

Logo Designer Saint Augustine

THE GUARD. That's the image for H2O Guard's initial set of products. They represented durability, conservation, and value. The customized armored sentinel was created from many source references and finally rendered as the stylized shield created from a head and chest piece. We originally wanted a stamped look and feel for the typography.

The Diamond Doctor Society Logo

The most credentialed group of doctors anywhere. The Diamond Doctor Society was developed by Dr. Scott E. Newman for the public to be able to find the most credentialed physicians in all fields of medicine. This rendered logo brand is completely original and created digitally.

Classic Toy Train Display Logo

Classic Toy Train Display

This is a studio favorite so we keep it around. We also like to show it as an example of some great typography design. It's got a classic feel to it... funny, eh? Well, it is important to us to communicate with images, letters AND words too. Can we really tell an entire story with only one word? It's fun to try. 

If you think about it, each letter is a little picture too. Bottom line: we absolutely love to work with typography. 

SembleTech

St. Augustine Logo Design

The SembleTech logo was for a division of an Internet service provider in Westchester county, New York. They began to offer workstations with preloaded software for companies. The image represents "fitting together" in a bold way.

Spiritual Java

logo designer saint augustine

Spiritual Java was a unique program of yoga and nutrition developed by Marilyn Diamond, Co-Author of the visionary 70's mega-bestseller, Fit for Life.

This brand ID was a composite of one original photograph (the hand), an original illustration (the jewel), and the typographic icon "SJ" within the jewel image.

Hendrick Hudson Free Library Logo

Logo Design St. Augustine

A logo doesn't necessarily have to be the same all the time. Some may argue. We see the logo to be an opportunity to identify a business or product but why not have some "extra" fun?

Some things, some places, are hard to describe in a single image. So why not use several? We designed the Hendrick Hudson Free Library logo with a revolving set of images, each to represent another service or material. The vertical strokes of the upper case "H" were perfect for supporting each image acting as the horizontal stroke or "cross bar" to form the letter. It works well, it's fun, and there are many other fun images to use.

ReInvent Business Logo

ReInvent Business needed something that was contemporary yet not over the top. The ribbon element represents the unwinding of traditional business and marketing. It also took on the familiar "e" to represent the new "electronic" medium.

Our clients say...

"I looked over the site again and the only feedback I have is positive. I really love it...look of the website is exactly what I had hoped for.  It is professional, yet inviting and warm and has the same feel as the brochure which I like."
