Each new year feels like a fresh start—a chance for new beginnings! It’s the perfect time to finally get working on that great business idea you’ve been playing around with in your head!!! You’ve already got the name picked out, and maybe you’ve already registered it too… so what’s the next step? A unique and great-looking logo to start branding your business! I can help you with that! My work process is very collaborative… from the first consultation to the final design stage, YOU are involved every step of the way. Are you ready to get started?
I’d like to share a special new logo created for my longtime client, Randy Pike, owner of Airborne Beans. Randy is starting a charity called Angel Foundation tied to his coffee company, which is why this logo is similar to the one we created for Airborne Beans. The foundation is in honor of his wife, Nina Petrow, who recently lost her battle with cancer. Nina was also a BlackStone Studio client, but most importantly, she was my friend. I’m so sad she is gone, but I am glad to be able to help Randy with the artwork for this beautiful endeavor. Money raised through the charity will go to help mothers battling cancer. Check out the new logo above!
BlackStone Studio just finished a new custom logo for the Montessori School of San Antonio’s 2019 Annual Spring Gala. I had the pleasure of working on their 2018 Spring Gala logo and invitation, which was recently awarded an American Graphic Design Award and now we are gearing up for next year’s gala, themed “Dream Big — Restoring the Past. Building the Future.” The 2019 gala is focused on raising funds for the renovation of their main building, so we made the school entryway our inspiration for the artwork. Check it out above!
I’m thrilled to announce that BlackStone Studio has been awarded three 2018 American Graphic Design Awards! This annual competition by Graphic Design USA honors outstanding new work from creative professionals from all over the country. Roughly 10,000 entries were submitted this year alone, and only a highly selective 10% were recognized. I’m so honored to be a part of that group! Check out the winning projects below.

I’m happy to share a new project that BlackStone Studio just wrapped up for one of our newest clients, the San Antonio Central Catholic High School, one of the largest all-male private secondary schools in the state of Texas. I was tasked with digitizing their school seal and helping them colorize the new artwork. It was a fun challenge as we couldn’t deviate far from the original graphics, but we wanted to have a new cleaner, scalable vector image that could transform smoothly from black and white to color. Check out the end results!

Take a look at this new logo that BlackStone Studio just designed for a Rhapsody Realty Services client, Richard Heller Custom Homes. This San Antonio custom home builder was looking to refresh and revamp their brand with a completely new visual identity. In collaboration with Rhapsody Realty Services, I was able to design a new and more contemporary logo for them. Check it out above!
