Bar-b-cue Cook off

Deep Down, Inc. manufactures subsea equipment and services for the oil and gas industry. Every year at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, there is a barbecue cook off party. Deep Down wanted to create a logo for their team. I guess Texans take their barbecue seriously. (:

A new client, W3 Advertising out of Stafford, Texas, asked me to supply the design.

Here's the winning selection I created for them.

Any opportunity I get, I try to use Studio on Fire (letterpress and design studio in Minneapolis) to letterpress stationery. It's old school technique and yet so very cool. Here's a calling card I recently designed for Love's Garden, a Christian ministry in Israel. They will love handing these things out.

p.s. be sure to click on the photo for a much better view.

Final Product

A while back I showed you my early progress on this annual report cover. Here's the final product along with a couple of the interior images. This project was an epic battle. I told Scott Di Girolamo from Design Center that if we ever survived this, I would buy him a beer. We celebrated this week over lunch at the Lexington in St. Paul.
