Golden Real Estate
A long time client. I had created this logo back in 2009 and all necessary branding, which included a moving truck wrap. In addition to the truck wrap image here, I've attached recent advertisements (2012-2013) for local grocery food chain shopping cars, business networking organization yearly publication, a yearly art fair event publication, and another yearly event publication commemorating Buffalo Bill
Original logo was not created by me, however, soon after the logo was created the client and I began working with one another (about 2006 or so). The client desired themed logo art to represent holidays and times of the year. The first image is the original logo from another designer (blue/green)... the following image are the themed co-brand images. I also continue to work on marketing pieces -- business cards, brochures, labels, packaging, notepads, etc
