After the 2016 election, I was looking for a way to get involved politically in my spare time. When I Googled, “Democrats of Coos County” the screen capture below is what I found when I arrived. Needless to say, it needed some help right away. I contact the CCD that evening.
I knew I could help.
First, we started off with designing a logo. I took the old video stills of a donkey kicking and traced it. Can you guess which frame my version is from? Which one would you have used?
“Animal locomotion”, 1872/85. Eadward Muygridge. Scan of 2 d images in the public domain believed to be free to use without restriction in the US.
Next up, we planned out some simple content strategy, organized a turn-key solution for members and used SquareSpace so I wouldn’t have to manage the day-to-day opporations of the website. We launched the website in August of 2017! Check it out here or by clicking on one of the images below to visit CoosDems.org:
RRCT asked WRCA if they could donate some design hours to their new logo. It was approved! We submitted a lot of great logos and here is the final result!
Here was the official submission:
What a great brand for the south coast of Oregon! Here is a link to their website.
Logo submissions that did not make the cut:
I was asked to make a t-shirt logo for Coos Bay’s March For Science!
Here are the national brand graphics I started with: https://sites.google.com/view/m4s/home

I grew too much oregano! So I dried it, branded it, jarred it and then passed out to friends and family.
Friends, family, and every once-in-a-while, when a leaf falls on the ground, the dog tries to eat it. 🙂
My main goal is to show how much fun it can be to grow organic right in your back yard! Perhaps a ‘strawberries by tim’ post coming later this year?
Here is the oregano right before the drying process:
Here are some designs that didn’t make the cut:
I love comedy! My wife will tell you that I’m obsessed. My most recent phase in this comedy obsession is a Podcast called Professor Blastoff. As a branding exercise I decided to mock-up some fun logos, letterhead & business cards for each of the hosts. The beautiful painting was created by Blastronaut Jacob Sanders. I’m not sure who took photos of Tiny Calves, Beach Poop and The Wig but I thank them dearly.
Blastronauts of all ages!
My mission was to create logos for the three hosts of Professor Blastoff (Tig Notaro, Kyle Dunnigan & David Huntsberger… sorry Aaron Burrell) and an overall logo for the show.
Thanks for making me laugh, Professor Blastoff!
UPDATE: As of July 21st, 2015 Professor Blastoff has now closed it’s hatch door. Luckily, I have the Blastronauts Facebook group to help get me through these sad times. As a joke I made a t-shirt graphic out of a comment a fellow Blastronaught had made. A few people contacted me and wanted to actually have the shirt printed up. This… is for them! Love you guys… AAAAANNNND GIRLS! Warning the file is 10MB and liftoff is imminent. You can find the free font here, which was created byAdilson Gonzales.
I was the lead designer on the official Punchbowl logo! The logo was inspired by a small sketch from a VIP at KS. Many golfers like to add a personal meaning to the logo. For example, it could make some think of the infinity symbol, or the PB could look like a putter-head reflected.
No matter what the logo means to you or your golf buddies, taking home a keepsake from one of the most fun places in the world for golfers will spark fond memories.
Golfers at BDGR.
Inspire amateur and retail golfers who are looking for a keepsake from their experience at The Punchbowl! What an incredible experience, both on and off the putting green! The Punchbowl is like putt-putt on true links greens but twice the size and undulation. Putts you’ve never dreamed of. Fun for all ages. Free for guests or travelers coming down the 101!
The Bandon local community garden asked me to mock up some logos for them. Check out the logos that didn’t make it, as well as the winner below!
One of the first major projects I worked on when arriving at Bandon Dunes was a menu header for each restaurant.
Bandon Dunes patrons.
Create a lively and interesting menu header for each outlet. I worked closely with the Food and Beverage director and her team as well as KS to craft different graphics to help differentiate each restaurant’s voice. Later, we used those menu headers as navigation to the ‘Food and Spirits’ section of the new BDGR website,
