My flag football team decided to take our game to the next level this season and get some jerseys printed up. Naturally, this means we needed a badass logo that was going to not only make us look good, but also strike fear into the hearts of our opponents, so I opened up Illustrator and got to work.
Close friend and talented producer Dan Perichino needed a logo for his music production alias, Yakky Beats, and this design popped into my head. This quick logotype was created using a custom font I designed, inspired by the rhythm and consistent curves of audio waves.
It’s hard to believe my 30 Days of Design challenge is already over! I’m happy to say that despite a few close-calls and a semi-neglected social life that I was able to successfully complete a design on each of the 30 days. It was a great learning experience, allowing me to try styles I wouldn’t normally work in, hop into programs I don’t use often enough (or even learn new ones), and grow overall as a designer.

I’ve always had a thing for glitched out, glow-y 80’s graphics and I recently had to use the style for a video at work, so I figured I’d use it for a personal piece in today’s daily design. Something about the randomness of the glitches on old VHS footage is almost like abstract art to me. That and I’m a sucker for neon.
