I was inspired by the spacious, modern, light-filled architecture of The Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Burlington, Vermont, and combined that with Episcopalian symbolism to create an updated identity package for them.

Burlington High School Mascot

Burlington High School Mascot

Sometime around 2008, my son asked me to design a banner for a BHS Homecoming game for the next day as a favor for the Student Council. I kvetched at the short notice, but obliged, and did a quick banner on the computer. After reviewing the banner, he asked me to add the school’s mascot, a seahorse. I quickly looked online for some clip art and not finding anything I liked, I drew a sort of calligraphic one with the pen tool in Illustrator. I started to fuss with it, and wasn't happy with its tail at all, but my son put his hand on my shoulder, and told me it was great — and by the way the football team would be tearing through the banner and no one would ever see it again anyway after its one shining brief moment of glory. So I called it a night and sent the file to his school account so they could print it out. The following week, his advisor asked if he could use the seahorse I drew for the cover of a report, so I sent the original file. Flash forward to today, and Burlington High School uses this seahorse on their website, paperwork, uniforms, and it’s even in brushed steel on the Athletic Field entrance. Out of everything I've ever designed, this little seahorse will probably outlive it all. I would have loved to have refined the artwork if I’d known it was going to be a logo, but Pandora’s box was opened and this one got completely away from me from that one little computer sketch.
