Graphic Design in Asheville, NCGraphic Design

At heart, Blue Dozen Design is about graphic design and graphic art. Because it IS an art.

Since graphic design (and advertising design and web design) can so easily encompass all types of art – illustration, painting, design, photography, yadda yadda yadda, it stands on it’s own two feet as an art form in and of itself.

While we’re graphic designers by profession, we’re artists by the grace of God. We were born with it, raised with it, and we live it every day.

Sure beats a real job!

Honey Bee Steward Logo

HONEYBEESTEWARD_LOGO_DESIGN

We’re privileged to work with some pretty special people – and the Honey Bee Steward is certainly tone of those. This fellow has dedicated a huge portion of his life to the preservation of honey bees, educating folks about honey bees – and just about everything else you can do concerning the little buggers.

Blue Dozen Design developed a lovely, subtle logo for him, and a bold, bright website. The logo captures the honey cell and some good, earthy tones – and comes out warm and subtle. The site, built with WordPress and WooThemes, is as bold as the logo is subtle. The site is easy to update, and the design really makes it all pop.

Infographic for the History of Star Wars

We’ve got some really great clients. Can’t say who this one was for, but we can say it was one hell of a lot of fun to design. We love Star Wars. We love design. It was a match made in Photoshop heaven.

You’re welcome to download it (high-res here) and forward it like it’s hot.

Glam Canvas Logo Design

GLAMCANVASBeth Phoenix, professional wrestler, WWE Diva and 3-time WWE Women’s Champion, has an artsy side. She makes some really sweet art – painted on genuine canvas from wrestling rings. She needed a logo, and she came to us. Being wrestling fans (from back in the day,) we were thrilled, and we’re really happy with the results.

She’s a big fan of pin-up art and the whole retro thing, so – that’s what we did. A little retro, a little modern and a whole lot of fun.

We designed a good looking, marketable logo that really fits the bill for her product and her audience. Then, we made her an Etsy banner to help get her art career off the mat. Get it?

Check her out in the green pants. Then, check her out on Etsy.

Mutant Rooster and Pig Tshirt for Guys

Tshirt Design - Chick-o-Pig

Well, I threatened to bring back some of the Tshirt designs that were sold locally and through Etsy. Now, don’t get me wrong – I don’t have a problem with Etsy, but I am a control freak.

So, I opened up The Store of The Crassest of Commercialism.*

It’s only got a few of the “classics,” meaning the ones that I sold lots of and have had folks beg and plead for me to bring back – but I’ll be adding a lot more, including some one-of-a-kind models with swirled inks and weird crap.

Yes. I like to make money. All this coffee isn’t free, you know.

*For what it’s worth – it’s a WordPress ecommerce site. I do that kind o’ crap, too.
