Here are the latest designs for Peter’s Kettle Corn. The original logo design was created in 2007, back when gradients and detailed illustrations were still a thing. Since then, we’ve moved into flat and minimalistic approach to be more recognizable and appealing to a wider audience.
The logo is set in 2 colors, a burnt orange and a nice warm brown that complements all the flavors PKC has to offer. The simplicity of the kettle corn machine can easily be converted into outlines for use in stamps and one color applications.
Due to budget constraints, we didn’t have the luxury to design variations of the bag with different flavors, but instead had to come up with a solution to accommodate the 30 flavors they had. In addition to that, PKC allowed their customers to have a mix of up to 6 flavors per bag. Pretty cool for their customers but definitely a design challenge for me! Fortunately, we were able to come up with a solution. 3×1 stickers! I allotted space for up to (6) 3″x1″ sticker labels on the back side of the bag.
They should be going to print soon. I can’t wait to see the finished product!
I’ve always loved the view from my living room. It’s not as pretty as the lake but I still get to watch people walk by. That house across is my neighbor Sam’s house, and that dog bombing my composition… that’s Diego.
Sometimes I forget how much I enjoy doodling.
This wedding set was specially designed for one of my closest friend. We had it foil stamped on a linen navy blue card stock and it turned out just beautiful.
Today was going to be a good day for creativity. I love the ritual of making coffee every morning and thought I’d share my process using my Lumix G7. I think I’m starting to get the hang of editing videos on Adobe Premiere. I’m sure I’m not using all the features but I’m happy with how this video came out. I used a Nikon 17-55mm 2.8 and a Nikon 50mm 1.4 lens to shoot.
Today’s brew is Blue Bottle’s Honduras Santa Elena Catracha Quality Project beans, roasted August 14, 2017 so it’s pretty fresh. Here’s a list of the items I used:
My nephew’s 5th birthday today and we all got to experience this amazing animal show. Check them out at classroomsafari.org!
It has been 5 months since we got married and this is how everything came together. 🙂 So lucky to have amazing and creative friends around me. Photos by: Sweetpoppystudios.
It’s still in the works. I have a few more that I need to post but I can’t seem to zero in on a concept. So far I’m liking the idea of having imageries of San Francisco in the background – not so much landmarks but showcasing local scenes and the everyday hustles of the city.
Here’s another fun pro bono design for my friend’s niece.
I wasn’t too crazy about this logo when I first designed it. Maybe it was the tooth my client requested for in place of the counter of the letter “D”. Dentist – tooth – dentist – tooth… too much of a cliche perhaps.
But after revisiting my work archive a few years later, I stumbled across this logo and thought – hey… it’s not too bad afterall. Surprising.
