Here is the final logo I wrote about 2 weeks ago in Part 1- Adding illustration to a logo design project. This is the logo project where I really put my years of illustration practice to work!
I was really excited about creating something for the city I was born and raised in. They wanted elements of both the City of Long Beach and the Fall Festival (which the logo was for). Who better than someone born and raised there?
I used the boardwalk, which Long Beach is know for, as well as the iconic City Hall building. And I had to include the bay, because after all, Long Beach is part of a barrier island. Our concept is to modify this logo for other events, by switching out the Fall Festival elements, but maintaining the City elements.

I am really excited about the redesign of the My Creative Resolution banner! The above is a little sneak peek. You’ll have to wait until we get closer to New Year’s for the unveiling! For the new banner I wanted a more simplistic look. I wanted more of a logo and I wanted it to have meaning.
My banner has been all over the place this year. It’s ironic considering I am a Graphic Designer! But, the more I think about it, the more it makes sense – I was finding myself, and finding what “My Creative Resolution” was all about, so the banner was changing, just as I was evolving.
Here are the varied banners I’ve had this year:
My first banner – not sure what I was thinking. I think I was going for a look that I didn’t quite achieve. It seems like so long ago.
The second banner was a reflection of what I was working on at the time. I realized I was painting a lot and wanted to show that.
This third banner was a portfolio of sorts. I was proud of all I had accomplished.
Stay tuned for the new banner design!
