Brand identity and web design for Veteran Empowerment Transition Training & Coaching. VET Training & Coaching is a veteran owned company founded by a Marine Corp Veteran. The organization’s mission is to equip ambitious transitioning veterans with the tools, resources, and strategies to live a high performing civilian life.
As Art Director/Designer I conceptualized and created: Logo design, stationery, color schemes, brand guideline, UI/UX development, web design, market research, social media marketing graphics and promotional materials.
The main concept of the project was to communicate and relate directly with veterans about the difficulties of the transition from soldier to civilian life. My creative process centered on: bold type design, digital content organization, empowering images, signature program design, vibrant color schemes and intuitive call to action elements. I produced social media campaigns as a complementary outlet to give veteran access to the organization’s signature programs. This achievement led to a painless, confident and successful transition from soldier to the civilian community.

I conducted an extensive research in the Baby Boomers’ younger days (Starting from 1940s, ending in 1960s) to find out what type of technology or trends impacted their lives in the most significant way. I discovered a trend starting in 1950s, which ended in the late 1960s that was very interesting to me. I analyzed that trend and decided to use it as the main concept to connect with Baby Boomers today. The trend that caught my attention was the Golden Age of Traveling. I noticed that most Baby Boomers were between the ages of 18 – 21 during that time. Traveling by land, air or sea was to them an exceptional and exciting experience. So I came up with this slogan “Embark on a New Adventure” with Credence Cultural Center as the vehicle that will take them on a creative cultural journey.
My Logo Design Process:
The first step of my logo creation always starts with a word map. The reason for starting with a word map is to focus my attention of the path or paths I will need to follow in order to reach the most effective and direct creative ideas. The second step is the production of sketches, icons, marks and doodles with step one in mind to keep me on track during my creative process. The last step is transferring the most promising sketches to Adobe Illustrator for further refinement.
This is the point where I would create multiple digital versions of the logo in Illustrator by manipulating: colors, scale, font sizes, font weights, textures, assets composition, icons orientation, assets reduction, type choices, proportion, contrast, balance and unity to see which versions work best visually with the initial direction that I attained during the word mapping process.
The most importing phase of the logo process is testing the different versions of the ideas that I executed in Illustrator and apply then to various forms media. This task will determine if the logo versions I created will translate well and consistently when displayed in different environments. Once the logo designs passes the consistency phase, they are ready to be presented to the client for revisions until the logo process is complete.
