Krysta Sumabat and her Checkmat Jiu-Jitsu teammates came to me with a name, a couple of visual elements and an idea of what their logo may look like.
I came up with a load of sketches and ideas and presented them to the team with the hopes that they would approve.
Not only did they approve they wanted all three design options I presented!
Below is some original sketches and then the three final logomarks.

Love's Arm Outreach

This logo was created for Love’s Arm during a 12 hour Make-a-thon held in Chattanooga, TN by Make A Mark. Sam Grandel, Sabie Crowder and I worked together to rebrand Love’s Arm. We created an updated logo that replaced the outdated version with a more modern, simple take that held true to the values and mission of the organization. We also created a simple and effective website for them powered by Squarespace.
Below is the logo and brochure created to educate and inform women of the services Love’s Arm provides.
