Develop logomark for storyteller who wants to build a publishing company
Robert Emmers is short story fiction writer. He’s been published in a number of prominent magazines, but his goal is to begin publishing his own stories as well as other fiction authors under his own brand.
Robert asked me to develop a black and white logo to present the name Dog Soldier. The challenge was two fold. One, Robert didn’t want any representational association, or cultural appropriation with the term Dog Soldier. I wasn’t familiar with the term and had to ask as well as look it up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog_Soldiers Two, the name was inherently representational, dog and soldier, automatically conjure imagery even without the knowledge of the Cheyenne military societies. However, he wants the mark to be minimal and abstract in juxtaposition with the name.

“My art, as far as it goes, involves words. When I needed someone whose art is images and pictures and design, I turned to Steve Miller. His work for me was terrific and I highly recommend him.”Robert. Emmers
