Earlier today I received an email to inform me that I had been chosen to participate in a celebration for 25 years of the LGDA. I jumped on the opportunity, creating logos and identities is truly my favorite so when an organization such as LGDA offers you a chance to display your work you take it.
Each participant receives a year. The designer must create a logo that represents the year given. It's kind of funny that 2009 was the year chosen for me. I feel like 2009 was when I really started develop myself as a designer so it was pretty cool to revisit this time in not only design but my infancy as a designer.
I decided to do a trend mashup combining a sequential style with gossamer keeping it colorful and bold. I would love to hear your thoughts! 2x for a closer look.

The Louisville Graphic Design Association's "25 Years of the LGDA" features artwork and design from 25 different artists. Each artist is assigned a year for inspiration. I had 1991, the year Nirvana released their album 'Nevermind'.

Upon the 25th anniversary of the Louisville Graphic Design Association (LGDA), 25 designers were asked to redesign the LGDA logo using one of the 25 years as inspiration. I was given 2005 and harnessed the power of bold display types from that era as well as Pantone's color of the year Blue Turquoise.

The Louisville Graphic Design Association is celebrating 25 years of awesomeness this year! To celebrate this, they have assigned one of those 25 years to 25 designers. I got the year 2011. Since that is so recent I decided to lean on major events for inspiration. Turns out, that was the year Steve Jobs passed away. He was a true visionary, and had a tremendous impact on how each of us work with and appreciate design every single day. Naturally, I dressed up the logo as 4 Steve Jobs. Enjoy.

To commemorate the Louisville Graphic Design Association's (LGDA) 25th year, twenty-five designers were asked to create a piece of art using the logo, and the year they were assigned. I was given 2012, so, naturally, I focused on the apocalypse.
2012 saw the Red Bull Stratos, the fall of Joseph Kony, Hurricane Sandy, the Arab Spring, the discovery of the Higgs Boson particle, and the narrow avoidance of the Mayan's prophesied doomsday. Looking back, I'm inspired by mankind's propensity to turn great devastation into great progress. This is a bit of an homage to that effect... In the midst of great destruction, there is great hope.

The louisville graphic design association its 25th anniversary and asked 25 designers to redesign the LGDA logo, inspired by an assigned year.
I was assigned 1998, the year the imac was released. I loved the idea of drawing out the letters as if they were components of the actual computer. I remember the first time i saw one in person when my friend Aaron got one. It blew my mind that the entire computer was the size of a standard PC monitor.
You can see the full piece in attached.

One of 9 logos significant to 1994 that we recreated as LGDA logos to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the organization. You can see all 9 this Friday (December 6, 2013) at the LGDA 100 Show along with a bunch of other talented designers and illustrators takes on other years.

My logo for the LGDA 25 years project. Inspired by design styles used in 1997. The biggest cultural point I could find for that year was Titanic being released so I based mine off of the style of the time rather than the culture. I found lots of designs mixing fonts, orientation, and colors, so I based my logo on that.

My contribution to the LGDA 25 year tribute. 2001. First thing that came to mind was Sept 11. Didn't want to go there with this kind of project. Next association with 2001 was the movie.
