Logo Design with Aaron Draplin

Here’s another cool Skillshare class, this time taught by Aaron Draplin. I adore his design work, it’s simple but awesome. I picked up a few of the Field Notes memo books he designed and always have one kicking around with me. Check out the memo book archive – all that vintage design is scrumptious!

In this logo design class we were instructed on how to use simple shapes and type to create a family crest. I learned how to keep it simple and really work on the shapes and negative space. My crest includes a hummingbird to symbolize determination, a drafting compass which is where my roots are, a guitar because music saves my life everyday, and a stylized ocean wave because I live by the ocean and never want to leave. The Latin reads: This too shall pass.
I took the lessons I learned and used them to create this Chihuahua crest. I love the simplicity and colors and am discovering that less is sometimes more.

Beagle Beer Pub

It’s been a long time since I’ve created a new dog breed so here is a Beagle Bartender! Beagles are part of the hound family so I gave him a houndstooth vest. They were originally bread to hunt small game so he’s serving up Wild Hare Ale. While researching Beagles I couldn’t help but notice how darn cute they are! Prints are available on Ebay.
