Cross Livestock Auction Logo

I thought I’d do something a little different today.  I have been working on this logo for 2 weeks.  It was hard for the client to settle on the right critter.  The rest of it I had on day 1.  Funny how logo design goes.  This is going to be a great account and is starting with a bang.  Their first auction is Tuesday and they need several signs by then.  So much for my weekend off.   🙂

About Helen Keller

American author and activist Helen Keller was born in Alabama in 1880; she became blind and deaf after a childhood fever. When she was 7, Ann Sullivan famously coaxed her out of her sullen, angry shell and taught her to communicate. From then on, Keller took on the world. She graduated from Radcliffe, traveled the world visiting sweatshops and speaking out for the powerless, helped found the ACLU, and wrote eleven books. She died in 1968.

Logo Design – Whole Hawg Day

“We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.”
– Abraham Lincoln

Logo Design – Whole Hawg Day

A lot of what I do at Signs by Beth, LLC is logo design.  I have been doing Whole Hawg designs for many years.  It’s so fun for me!

I give them a lot of choices each year.  This little pig had swim fins and tennis shoes, too.  Right now I am working on a website logo for a gun company.  It’s really challenging, so I’ll go through a lot of designs before I end up with one that they (and I) will love.  I’ll share some of these designs  with you when I’m done.  🙂

Have a great weekend!

About Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln, the American president remembered as Honest Abe, is renowned for his strong leadership during the Civil War and for ending slavery in the United States. He was born in a Kentucky cabin in 1809. He taught himself law and passed the Illinois bar in 1837, the same year he first spoke out against slavery. The Southern states seceded in response to his election to the presidency in 1860. Lincoln was assassinated in 1865, mere days after General Robert E. Lee surrendered to end the war.
