Chicago Muralist Logo

Although mainly a muralist, I get a good assortment of projects.  Logo design is one of my favorite things to do; it’s simple, but has so much impact on a company’s image.  This is my own logo, and surprisingly, it came together very easily.  Usually when I have to do any sort of artwork for myself, I can’t decide how to go about it.

I came up with this while sitting in a car dealership waiting to sign some papers. I saw the outline of the Chicago skyline on a plaque, and suddenly it clicked that I should turn the buildings into brushes. People don’t always see the brushes right away, but when and if they do, I’d like to think the logo becomes a little more memorable.

    Haha! Love it. It probably took me .001 seconds to focus, putting me at .01 seconds. The record stands.

    I assumed they were paint brushes. Which means that my understanding of this logo transcends time. Record broken. #win
