Branded


Wasn't part of our projected budget this year but we wanted a logo to identify with the yard haunt as one of our future year projects. As opportunity would have it, haunter and graphic designer Derek Young, a familiar face at Facebook's "Haunter's Hangout", was offering logos at such a good price we couldn't resist and we pushed it up the priority list this past week.

Derek has been a graphic designer for over a decade who has worked specializing in name branding and re-branding existing logos of some pretty major companies, so putting together logos for some yard haunts is probably a good way to keep his skills from getting too rusty while our economy does it's slow recovery act. In addition to graphic design he also does video production work and some sound design. You can check out his work at thefortythieves.com.

He is great to work with and given the fact I had no idea what we wanted, but just a few things we didn't want, I think he worked a small miracle over the course of a couple emails.

Here are just a few more of his recent haunt logos.

    1. Thank you Ms. Lisa! Could have had one more extreme but we were just looking for an ominous feel and those trees are typical to our area.
