LOGO AND BANNER

logobannerMy client wanted an eye-catching banner and logo to showcase their organization’s inclusive platform and mission statement. I provided several concepts to the organization and worked with their team to deliver artwork that met their needs and goals. The background design is an original, hand-painted design crafted specifically for the organization, which uses rainbow colors as a symbol of welcome. The logo and mission were created using graphic design software. The new logo and banner have improved visibility and recognition at local and national events, and the organization has gone on to use the design on letterhead, brochures, and posters.
