Branding, Logo Design, Web Design, Product Design: J.V. Hilliard
In August of 2021, Pittsburgh-based fantasy author J.V. Hilliard asked me to help create his identity. His logo, website and branding were most pressing, but I became a design and marketing consultant as well.
I started with the identity and being a proud Pittsburgher he wanted to stick with the city's iconic black and gold color scheme. We began to discuss logos and being in the fantasy genre a medieval dragon theme just made sense. I designed a monogram for smaller projects and an expanded logotype for main projects. You can see the use cases for each in the convention signage, bookbag, authenticator stamp, etc below.
