Please watch this video as it will help you understand why your logo can't be designed in Adobe Photoshop - and why your logo can't be a photo. Maybe back in the day your logo could have been an image file, now in today's world imagine your logo moving and becoming an animated gif on your website. If this is something that interests you then you need Vector artwork.

College & NFL Work

Before I ventured out on my own in early 2009. I worked for Conder Flag Company where I was laid off because of the down economy. Conder Flag works with a ton of sporting associations and very large format printing. Although it was sad to be laid off for the first time in my life, while I was there I got the chance to work with the ACC as we transformed the Time Warner Cable arena into the ACC 2008 Arena. Having the ACC Tournament and the Carolina Tarheels come to Charlotte was not only my brothers dream to get to attend the tournament by awesome to be able to create all graphics for the players and attendees to see. Not to meantion the exposure on TV. I went and took measurements of everything square inch of the arena and designed banners and layouts for the entire event all to scale. It was something that I will never forget.

I was also given the job to redesign the Carolina Panthers sidelines. How awesome is it to attend a game or watch a game on TV and see my designs on the sidelines. Check out the link below to see my pictures on Myspace. You don't have to sign up to see them. Really cool stuff.

Before I left the company I also got to work with the Charlotte (Lowes) Motor Speedway's new ZMAX drag strip. I designed the layout of the poles at the entrance and the flags that we printed for them. They were 5' x 20' giant printed flags using the Zmax graphics and colors.

Moving on now to new ventures. My next blog post will be about teaching!
