Many people get the opportunity to meet great men in their lifetime. One on my list that I’ve had the opportunity to know, is Kelly Kellogg. I am also lucky to be married to his beautiful daughter.

Kelly is a story teller. He has some adventures under his belt that belong in books or movies. When the opportunity arises, he’ll share a relevant tale of honor, respect, and other virtues. Often times it leads into a story that we can’t validate it’s authenticity. He’s told us time and time again when questioned on the reality of the experience, “I never let the truth get in the way of a good story.”
My wife said she wanted a Stand-up Paddleboard. I did a little research, and then said… “I can do that.”So I modeled out a board after looking at several designs online, I couldn’t find one I loved. So I took some of my favorite features, and made a 3D model.
This was a fun little project we did, just because we could. Sometimes making a little something for ourselves gives us a little boost. My wife asked me to make a stand for her phone. I couldn’t just make a stand, it had to do …Something.
Here is what I came up with. This is what we’ve nicknamed: The iGrammaphone.
A friend of mine who is a volunteer firefighter, opened an automotive garage. He came to me to have me design a logo for him. He had some inspired ideas and really wanted to have his firefighting heritage somehow represented. We went on to design a logo for him that he loves. We always take the extra care necessary to create a logo properly, as VECTOR ART. Too often customers come to us with a logo that their nephew “designed in photoshop”. This type of file is not universally compatible with different forms of print and web use. A properly designed logo is done as a vector, then it opens the doors to so many possibilities. One such thing that comes from a well designed vector logo, is our ability to turn it into a 3D sign.
