Brand & Website Design – The Captain’s Coffee

Waaaay back in early 2008, I was hired by these wonderful people to do this. Now 2008 may not seem like a long time ago, but in internet years, it’s a lifetime. Web designers are born and die in the span of 4 years. Not really. In any case, I was quite the newbie back then, […]

Rebrand: Michael & Gloria Cotten | Antioch International Ministries, Inc.

  My parents are really cool. Everybody who knows them agrees that they pretty much rock. So when they asked Jessica and I to rebrand their traveling ministry, we said “Heck yes”. Maybe we didn’t say “Heck”, but we definitely said “yes”. My parents have had a ministry called Antioch Ministries for ages, yet as […]

Tammy Crowley-Deloatch owns and operates a family fitness center in Roanoke Rapids, NC called Crowley’s Fitness Center.  She recently got married, and has had some other significant life changes happen. She found herself re-examining her business and realized that while she had changed, the business had not.  She began looking for a way to move […]

Make Up Your Own Mind – Branding

The Greensboro Pregnancy Care Center (GPCC) wanted to launch a new pregnancy awareness campaign on college campuses in the Greensboro area. Their goal was to create a new brand identity and marketing materials around a theme that would attract male and female college students in the Triad area. GPCC wanted to let students know that […]

Affinity Art Gallery

The Affinity Art Gallery is a new non-profit art gallery located inside the facilities of Kernersville Community Church (KCC) in Kernersville, NC.  Kernersville is at the dead-center of a region of North Carolina known as the Triad.  It’s an area consisting of Winston-Salem, Greensboro and High Point.  KCC is home to several artists, and along […]

The Tap Logo

This was a new logo, and by extension, identity design for a college and career ministry at a long-time church client of mine.  They wanted to communicate humor while also showing themselves to have high quality standards.  They had a name: The Tap, playing off the ideas of both living water and beer.  I thought […]

Identity and Branding Project: Awaken City Church

I was approached by the pastors of a new church in Greensboro, NC about developing a corporate identity system for their launch.  In the beginning, I was given a design brief that was fairly vague, as often happens with any brand new organization.  Over the course of several months of doing sketches and meeting with […]

KCC Realign

I created the corporate identity for Kernersville Community Church (KCC) in 2007 to reflect the infancy of a new vision, coming from new leadership in the church. KCC was originally planted over a decade ago, but a new, younger pastor with a new vision came to the church 3 years ago. The original identity was […]

The Easter Offering Event Promotion

A local church is hosting a large, regional creative arts event, and hired me to head up the promotion for the event.  I did some printed materials, as you can see above, including a 4×6 postcard design that functions as an invite card, with map and event information, and stands alone as a promotional piece, […]

Awaken Youth Conference Website

Another marketing component to the Awaken Youth Conference, the website needed to be a simple blog format that would encourage the leaders, speakers and workshop leaders to write articles.  The purpose of it is to help the leaders get to know the students before the conference begins, and to let the students start conversations with […]

Kernersville Community Church Identity

A new corporate identity for a fast-growing church located in an area of North Carolina that’s an intersection between several large cities.  The target audience for this was primarily “unchurched” people, or people who didn’t grow up going to church.  It needed to impart a sense of “family, warm, friendly and inviting” I gave the […]

Living Way Church

Living Way Church, in Greensboro, NC is a growing church that’s getting filled up with young couples, but has some pretty deep historical roots dating back to the late 1970’s.  The meetings are a mix of contemporary music, conservative teaching and people that love being together in community.  I first created a corporate identity for […]

Zimmerman Carpet and Rug Cleaners

Zimmerman Carpet Cleaners (ZCC) is a company that I actually used to work for.  When I graduated from Design school, there wasn’t much work for a designer, as that was during an economic downturn.  When’s the last time we had an upturn? Anyway, Mike Zimmerman went to my church, and had been operating his carpet […]
