Good graphics attract the eyes. We had a short story to tell and needed an accompanying photograph or graphic to attract the reader to the story. Since we were talking about the story behind the name "Charlotte's Law" we decided upon a graphic that made the logo the central element drawing the visitor's eye to the story.
These two horses, Mia and Dusty, were the Queen and King of the Korns family horse farm. The best photo we had of them together was "not so great" because it cropped off Dusty's ears. We decided to zoom into their heads; fix the ears; extend the sky upward; apply a filter to make the photo appear as an oil painting; and then matted and framed the result.
An important component of a website these days is the inclusion of a small icon reflecting the website or business. The icon can be used for other useful functions including: as a Favicon seen with the website's bookmark and in browser tabs; as a socicon to identify website posts on social media sites; and as mobile device home screen button allowing one touch access to your website.
The military has a tradition of challenge coins bearing an organization's insignia that is carried by it's members. When the Texas Army National Guard 236th Engineering Batallion deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 the 1st Platoon Crazy Horse needed such a coin developed. An artist in the platoon provided hand drawn insignia artwork that we blended with a phrase often heard around the platoon.
On my last day of work I managed to get a group photo of all my co-workers I was going to miss working with. Turns out not everyone was there that day and given flu season and vacation days it took another 7 photos over several weeks to get everyone's photo. I had the pleasure of cutting, pasting and cropping the add-on photos to assemble this shot of 38 of my favorite co-workers.
