Riverside Cultural District of Monroe
I submitted this logo for our local cultural district, basically a long strip of galleries, studios and museums – i haven’t heard the results yet. I’m in competition with 3 other artists i think.
As of now, the city only has plans for flags on lightposts, hence the format.
I have to give props to Blaine Fontana who’s work inspired this design. He has this little icon he uses often, sort of his trademark or something, of a house with roots coming out the bottom – ultimately it looks nothing like what i did but it put the seed in my brain to design this. He also uses the sunrays/starburst background occasionally, along with several neo-contemporary artists i guess – and as you can see below, i worked that in on the 2 color version. So look up Mr. Fontana if you get a chance, his work is stellar. And if you dig his style, check out Jeff Soto too – I should get a finder’s fee. – j
