One of the last projects I got to do for the marketing director at Faith Family Academy was to design the new billboards. Under her direction and with some great photography, these are the results.
My latest James Hough: artist • illustrator • designer postcards are in and will today begin going out to art directors everywhere!
A selection of logos I created during a period of painting that was awash in graphic design and branding influences.
TAF is inspired by the UPS shield logo redesign; Koby Teith is an homage to the country singer; Beachfront is a lifestyle brand modeled after toothpaste packaging design; Omoo comes from the Melville novel of South Seas adventure; The Horror is a logo for a would-be garage band; Mississippi is what it is; and, Paint is a treatment of the word if it were a Las Vegas nightclub.
I am working on my current postcard that I mail out to art directors, and it occurs to me that I have not shared my design from April. See? If you need drawings of gardens, furry monsters, or hovering robot artists, I’m your man!
While I worked at Faith Family Charters last year—with an amazing team of electives teachers and many beloved students—the Fine Arts director gave me the opportunity to redesign the school mascot. I’m proud of the results: here they are…
Last year I designed the postcards for our annual SCBWI North Texas Chapter Conference, including an illustration of three Texas-shaped kites.
Here are some graphic design pieces I produced for one of the leading benefit auctioneers in Texas, Andrew Bost. I had redesigned his logo a little while before we did these advertisements.
