I was happy to work once again with Roy Baudoin of Smyrna Bowling Center, who also acts as President of the TSBPA to create a new business identity for the organization. In addition to a striking (no pun intended) new logo design, we applied the new logo to the business papers for the TSBPA to give mailings and such to its members a separate identity from that of the Smyrna Bowling Center. This is an excellent mark and I have been happy to assist Roy in creating something singular for its members to identify with.
JK Design | Graphic Communications and Smyrna Bowling Center are happy to announce the launch of their new web site at www.smyrnabowling.com. The web site has been a large project and is expansive and treats their patrons to an online environment that feels visually much as the center itself does. We feel that it really captures the personality and the fun of Smyrna Bowling Center, and utilizes excellent information design to be easy and intuitive to navigate, and to keep their customers in the know about all the fun things going on at SBC.
Smyrna Bowling Center is the largest most modern bowling center in the state of Tennessee. I had the recent pleasure of meeting owner Roy Baudoin at a Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce event being held at the Smyrna Bowling Center facility. They will be receiving a new web design. In addition to the web design, we are giving their corporate identity, or logo a facelift in the process, to help create stronger brand awareness. The logo can be seen at left. As a result of the new corporate identity’s creation, we are giving their business papers a matching facelift.
King’s Funeral Planning is a startup that I am now working with to assist in branding their company. To start, we have produced their logo mark which figures prominently into the design of a beautiful tri fold brochure which will be their primary first marketing vehicle. I am very excited to assist this company in creating their branding and marketing materials as they get of the ground. All the more so, as the company is the brain child of Jessica and Karen King, my own niece and sister. I wish them much success, and look forward to assisting them with their future marketing needs.
I am happy to announce new client JD Designs, owned and operated by Jennifer Davenport, an interior designer and home stager. Our goal was to give her company an updated and tailored business identity. In addition to a new logo design, we produced new business papers for JD Designs which included new business papers. Her new logo is also finding its way to the front page of her web site. JD Designs has received awards for work in Parade of Homes. Jennifer prides her company on being able to work with any design budget. Give her web site a look.
I am happy to announce the completion of a project in which I got to collaborate with my dear friend Rita Frizzell of Dakini Graphics. When the fine folks behind the down town revitalization project in McMinnville, TN needed a new identity, they came to Dakini Graphics. Rita saw an opportunity for my skills to help fill the bill, and tapped me to handle the illustration work. Congratulations to Main Street McMinnville on their new design.
Went live with a interactive web application for online gaming group The Avant-Guards / Blackguards. This expansive, pro bono project afforded me the opportunity to learn two programming languages that allow a web interface to speak to a back end data base. The net result is an application that allows users to dynamically insert and retrieve vast amounts of information regarding this online social group’s primary resource: it’s members. It incidentally also stands as what is most likely the most advanced membership accomplishment tracking system of its kind for any group within the massively multi-player online role playing game, City of Heroes™.
I designed the reunion book for my 20 year reunion. I was very pleased to be able to offer my classmates a keepsake that will I hope they will treasure for years to come. It represents a level of design work which a high school reunion committee budget would not be able to normally afford. It now resides proudly in my portfolio of work.

Produced a half page advertisement for the book When You Come Unglued… Stick Close to God for the General Board of Discipleship, the publishing arm of the United Methodist Church. This was a project secured by Dakini Graphics and turned over to me to work up.
My first paid job! Woot!

Continuing internship with Dakini Graphics in Nashville, I created submissions for a set of business papers (business card, letterhead & envelope) for sister companies Oxford Real Estate and River Birch Homes.
The design on the sets of business papers were quite daring. While they were not those chosen for print and usage by the companies, I was very proud that Rita felt that they were strong enough to put in front of one of her higher profile clients for consideration.
