Professional Voice Artist Bob Ball approached me recently to design a logo that could be use on his website as well as future collateral like business cards. He is a big fan of old school microphones, and old school is what I'm all about. I wanted to evoke a mid-40's to mid-50's vibe while still keeping the logo entirely timeless. I loved the idea of being able to point to elements of the logo that represent different era's but not being able to place the whole in any one era.

I also created a handful of patterns for him to use in anyway that he pleases, here they are displayed on mock business cards:
