I’m a firm believer that a logo is not a brand. A “brand” is the story people tell about a person, product or organization. You can’t design a brand. But you can take control of the imagery people commonly associate with a brand and put your best foot forward. I love designing logos and would love to be part of your creative branding project!

MusicStrong is a service that helps musicians in a rather important way. From their website, “Allow me to help you understand your body and how it works, to train your body to make it stronger and how to use your full body to play your instrument and prevent injury.” So the logo needed to reach out to two worlds – the musical world and the fitness world without alienating either.
“You ROCK! Thanks so much for helping me give my company an identity! I’m super excited to start plastering your work on everything. :) Thanks again for your AMAZING work!” ~ Angela McCuiston, MusicStrong
Grace Hills Church
I designed the logo for the church we will soon be planting to privately identify us with our heritage as a Saddleback Network church, which has since its beginning used the shape of a baseball diamond to represent how people grow spiritually. The “hill” merely connects us with our Ozarks surroundings and culture.
Bethel Baptist Church
This was the logo I developed for the church I formerly served as Pastor. The church was situated beautifully on a hill and we wanted to the community to easily identify us as “oh, you guys are that church ‘on the hill’.” It worked.
Mount Olivet Lutheran Church
Mount Olivet Church was seeking a new logo to represent their spiritual family that was fresh and green and gave the feel of an oasis in the midst of desert surroundings.
Pier 59 Project
Pier 59 Project is a network of small groups (or cell groups) spread throughout southern Alabama. Their logo needed to convey that groups, or cells, are many sizes and different shades, but the cross unifies them into a cohesive movement.
Baptist Missionary Association of Missouri
The BMA of Missouri wanted to be represented by a logo that was professional, that identified it with the state of Missouri, and that had a “fresh” feel, symbolizing their goal of planting healthy churches throughout the state.
The Storehouse is a nonprofit organization meeting the physical needs of people in the northwest Arkansas community. Their name comes from a verse in Malachi chapter 3 that talks about bringing the tithe into the storehouse “so that your houses may be full.” Since the verse was set in times of bringing the harvest of wheat into the storehouse, we used that as the symbol for their ministry.
EndowmentBuilders is a business that assists organizations and nonprofits with the management of their finances and devises investment strategies. The logo needed to look solid and stable, professional, and clean.
Go ShortTerm is a missions organization based in a single country that was seeking to create a very simple logo that would convey their heart for the entire globe. Their goal was to expand into every other country possible.
Danny R. Kirk
Danny Kirk is a Pastor and missions leader who needed a personal logo that would be simple, stylish, and easily identified.
The Pulpit Points logo was designed for an online blogazine about pastoral ministry and preaching run by a seminary student. The logo needed to make a point, so I allowed the little “i” to become the focal point and used it as the microphone on the pulpit.
Mark is a nationally-known leader in the small groups arena and I actually submitted this logo to him unsolicited and he loved it and uses it on his blog.
This wasn’t the final logo chosen by the client, but it was the one I loved. They wanted to represent themselves as bold, but humble. Hence the lowercase letters in a bold typeface.
2Live4Him is the name Nat Karsten Chearis chose for his blog. The logo was intended to crown “Him” as king and have “Him” as the largest element of the logo.
Blog About God
The idea behind the “blog about God” logo was merely to play off of the reflective element. The blogger wanted people to reflect on the meaning of God and life, so we created essentially a mirror image in a super bold typeface.
This logo was offered to a church that decided not to re-brand at the time, but the idea was that lives grow out of the foundation of the Chief Cornerstone.
Church Tech Today
Church Tech Today is an online magazine devoted to helping the church have a better handle on technology and media. I was given specific instructions to use the image of the computer with the church on the screen, but wanted to add a bit of pixel effect to the lettering underneath.
Gaming2Go is an event marketing company that offers business opportunities using trailers set up as interactive gaming centers that can be parked outside retail stores for marketing events. The logo is merely a rounded font in the shape of a trailer.
New Creation Church
This was my concept for rebranding a church’s logo that needed to represent itself as offering a fresh new life while keeping things very simple.
WalmartHelp is an online magazine devoted to breaking news about Walmart and the retail industry at large. I kept coming back to the concept of the lightbulb, the flash of which mocks the newer, softer Walmart logo itself, as does the typeface of the logo.
Serving Strong is the online home of Life Coach, Scott Couchenour, who wanted to represent how strength and a servant’s heart were both mixed together in Christ and His cross.
