A few new logos that I want to try to work into my label design.

I've determined that my label is going to be 4x6 inches. It's a good size label that can be placed on the center of the packaging for my wood signs. (The signs are 16" in diameter).

I have begun creating my own wall decor out of reclaimed barn wood. The graphics for the first batch were inspired by 40's and 50's milk bottle caps. Each piece is hand painted/stenciled. Eventually I want to sell these but in the meantime I need to create a brand/identity for The Lumber Farm.

So far I have turned some preliminary sketches into rubber stamps. I intend to use these in various places on the packaging or maybe the receipts.

I am inspired by the first half of the 20th century. I like to think about early professional football teams and their uniform letters, patches, and pennants. Picture a group of boy scouts in the 1930's sitting around a camp fire learning how to make an authentic indian head dress. There's something about the outdoors and the old days that I love to think about (and all of the heritage and product quality that went with it).
