Best part about volunteering? Other than the people? The inevitable Silly Face Contest. Which truthfully is just a bunch of faces, because when I’m there I make it a point to smoke the competition. I warned em. Creeper status achieved. Honorable mention to the lady front and center! She introduced me to Jack London’s work for which I am super grateful. Check out mom and daughter, mom like ‘How about peace signs and an awkward pose’ and daughter like ‘How about no.’ I swear the people you meet volunteering are the best stock. Simple peeps trying to do simple deeds. My kind of crowd 🌏 . . . . . . . . . . @henrycowellredwoods.sp #DOGOOD #dosomething #makeadifference #volunteer #giveback #calstateparks #100years #parkchampions #nocontest #sorryNeilbutIhadtotakebackthetrophy

Although the computer is my main tool for design work, I keep it old school with pencil & paper for as long as possible in the beginning. This is a timelapse video showing how I build out the main parts of a logo before taking the design to the computer.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #showyourwork #timelapsesketch #startuplogo #nonprofitlogo #processsketch #logogrid #logomaker #customlogo #logosketch #identitysystem #logoprocess #nonprofitbranding #brandingprocess #brandingforbusiness #logodesignprocess #sketchpage #logocollection #logosketches #veteransconservationcorps #logodesigning #vcc #parkchampions #logodesigner @logonew #businessidentitydesign #businesslogo @logoplace @logoinspiration @logotypeclub #logofolio #logopositive #customlogodesign #identitydesign #logoguidelines ⠀ ⠀

For this piece, I pulled a lot of inspiration from old graphics found in the 1930's-40's era of the Works Progress Administration & the Civilian Conservation Corps. I've always loved the logos, badges, posters, patches and artwork from that time period and I really enjoyed working in some of those elements into the initial sketches.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #logosketch #logodesignprocess #sketchpage #logoprocess #logomaker #brandlogo #logocollection #logosketches #processsketch #logodesigning #vcc #logogrid #parkchampions #brandingprocess #identitysystem #logodesigner #customlogo #businessidentitydesign #businesslogo #nonprofitlogo @logonew @logoplace @logoexcellent @logosupport @logoinspiration @logotypeclub #learnlogodesign #logofolio #logopositive #corporateidentity #customlogodesign #identitydesign #smallbusinesslogo #logoguidelines #brandingforbusiness #nonprofitbranding
⠀ Earlier this year, I created this badge style logo for the Veterans Conservation Corps and Washington State Parks Foundation. The VCC Park Champions is an internship program that provides parks job training to vets in an ecotherapy infused environment. The salmonberry, a plant native to the Pacific Northwest region, is a significant metaphor to the client and we chose to design a flat, symbolic version and use it in place of laurel wreaths often found on the badges & inginia of uniformed personel. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #parkchampions #vcc #timelapsesketch #videoprocess #brandingprocess #logodesignprocess #logoprocess #identitysystem #logodesigning #logomaker #logodesigner #veteransconservationcorps #customlogo #businessidentitydesign #businesslogo #nonprofitlogo #logogrid @logonew @logoplace @logoexcellent @logosupport @logoinspiration @logotypeclub @parks_wa #learnlogodesign #logofolio #logopositive #logocollection #corporateidentity #customlogodesign #ecotherapy #identitydesign #smallbusinesslogo #logoguidelines #brandingforbusiness #nonprofitbranding

Happy #EarthDay 2018 and #NationalParkWeek ! 🌎 Today is a day we honor the Earth, its conservation & preservation - it was first celebrated on March 21, 1970, the first day of spring in the Northern hemisphere. This annual event is a great reminder for all of us to do our part - not just today, but every day & support those who care about environmental protection all over the world. 🙏🏼 I just want to warn you that I will probably continue to be annoying about the causes I care most about haha - I'm all about actions speaking louder than words and I'm a little mad at myself for not doing something about these issues sooner. It sure does humble and inspire me though when I'm able to join in on clean-up events for the environment (swipe left for the trash collected 🚯 picked up ~45 cigarette butts, used tissue, used McD's cup, different bottle caps & my favorite: someone's @alamorentacar rental agreement in French from March 2016... crazy!). But, #EarthWeek is a great reminder to be more mindful of the daily carbon footprint we are leaving behind, to refuse single-use (plastic straws, cups, to-go containers, etc.) and the different actions we can take to help preserve our beautiful planet for future generations to come. And for Heaven's sake, please pick up your cigarette butts when you're done smoking! 🚭😡 When possible... remember to reduce, reuse, recycle - there's no such thing as "away" when it gets thrown into the trash can. Always remember to leave it better than you found it! 🌎♻️💜🚯 And it's awesome that people enjoy the outdoors, but please be responsible - remember to pack it in and pack it out, never take more than you can carry, and (last, but not least) always practice #LeaveNoTrace principles when exploring and enjoying the outdoors & our public lands! 🍃🌎💜🌲 @leavenotrace @outdoorresearch @parksproject #EarthDay2018 #DeathValleyNationalPark #SaveOurPlanet #DeathValley #HikeDeathValley #SweatyDirtyHappy #ParkChampions #ForceOfNature #NationalParkGeek #ExploreResponsibly #NationalParkLife #WWHSteward
Happy Earth Day! 🌎 @nmcgui and I spent the morning volunteering with the Park Champions at Cuayamaca State Park staining picnic tables and picking up trash at the new ADA compliant day use area 👐😎 it's also National Volunteer Week so get outside and lend a hand 😊 . . #parkchampions #volunteerweek #earthday
It has been such a beautiful day for my first volunteer beach clean-up with @calparks out at #SilverwoodLake ☀️ I am so humbled by these experiences, being able to give back to Mother Nature and learn so much from different #ParkChampions who come from all over CA to volunteer and help take care of the environment. I look forward to the next clean-up, wherever that may be! 🚯♻️ #CAStateParks #CaliforniaStateParks #CalParks #DontLitter #CaliforniaStateParksFoundation #LeaveNoTrash #LeaveNoTrace #EnjoyYourWorld #ProtectPublicLands #TrashFreeEarth #BeInconvenient #UnitedOutside #OutdoorResearch #EveryCorner #TeamSierra #LetsKeepItWild #EarthDayKeeper #WWHSteward
