Shown here below is a collection of logos that I have created for businesses and other concepts.
Double Bar Music
This logo was designed for a music school called Double Bar Music. A “double bar” is the thin and thick lines that appear at the end of a written musical piece. You can see the “double bar” in the center of this logo helping to create the initials “db”. I had also included a guitar pick shape created by a blue zig-zag “soundwave-like” pattern.
Drive Smart Southcoast
Tasked with creating a logo for the Drive Smart Southcoast campaign to promote safe-driving to teenage drivers, I designed this logo to effectively communicate these 3 important habits... both hands at 10 & 2, wear your seatbelt and no cellphone use. Hopefully, this logo and campaign will save lives.
2017 HFHN Fall Fling
This logo was created for a social gathering of parents and staff of the Holy Family Holy Name School. Since the event is held in autumn for a Catholic school, I chose to incorporate a cross within a leaf as the focus.
This logo was created for a poster listing the birthdays of co-workers during the month of May. The theme was based on Cinco de Mayo.
Bristol County Regional Alliance
This logo was created for the Bristol County Regional Alliance, which is a collection of 20 towns in Bristol County, Ma formed to tackle the opioid crisis within its area. Through my research, I found that the hammer is a symbol used in Bristol County's official seal. For this graphic, I used 20 hammers (symbolizing the building of communities) to form a ship's wheel (representing the Alliance steering the county toward a better direction).
In Memory of Prince
As a huge fan and collector of Prince's music for decades, I created this logo soon after his death combining his "symbol", a guitar neck and his face.
De La Soul
De La Soul is a popular Hip Hop trio formed in the 80's. The members sometimes use the aliases "Plug 1", "Plug 2" and "Plug 3". Taking that, I found a 3-prong plug to be a perfect symbol for this Rap group.
1 STOP Home Improvements
Created for a home improvement contractor in Florida, this logo uses the "1" as the entrance into a home. This is featured on business cards and a work van.
This logo was designed for a local Rock band covering classic hits from the 1980’s.

Super Bowl XXXIII Merchandise Hangtag

After seeing an increase in redesigned NFL logos and the popularity of superhero films, I decided to use my love and knowledge of both comics and football to combine a comic book character with every NFL team logo.
New England Patriots/Captain America
This Patriots logo was my first in the series and inspired this NFL Superheroes project. I’m a big Pats fan and back in April 2014, I had seen the Marvel film “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, which gave me the idea of combining the flying Elvis logo with the most patriotic of all superheroes. It was so challenging and fun, that I then decided to re-create the entire NFL in the superheroes format.
There is no better hero to use for the Dolphins than DC’s Aquaman. Sure, you may think Marvel’s Sub-Mariner is just as good, but Aquaman is already wearing Miami’s colors (or vice versa). It took many long hours to piece together the perfect, dolphin-shaped swim pose for him. But the longer it took, the more I got into it. This is one of my favorites from this project.
A large buffalo-sized hero to represent the Bills was hard to come by. Plus, what could I do about that red stripe in the logo? So then I thought of the possibility of opening up my project to include villains, and bam, it hit me — Marvel’s Venom! He’s a character with the perfect bulky build and his famously long tongue solved the red stripe issue in the best possible way. With all that, I even used the horn from the Bills’ logo as Venom’s eye.
New York Jets/Green Lantern
For the Jets, I knew I had to obviously use a hero closely associated with the color green, so I decided to go with DC’s Green Lantern – or rather the entire Green Lantern Corps. Plus, the most famous Green Lantern in comics was Hal Jordan, a former jet fighter pilot.
Pittsburgh Steelers/Iron Man
Since Pittsburgh is known as "Steel City", it should be represented by Marvel's metallic Avenger, Iron Man. The diamonds in the Steelers’ team logo were replaced by various helmets that have been worn by Tony Stark. The overall circle itself is actually redesigned as the Stark Industries arc reactor on Ole Shellhead’s chest.
The three stripes of the Bengals’ "B" logo brought only one hero to mind for me – Marvel’s most famous mutant, Wolverine of the X-Men. The three stripes now resemble the three claws that eject from one of Wolvie’s fists. Also, a simple 90-degree rotation of the “B” logo allows it to be modified into a “W.”
For this logo, Baltimore's raven head logo has been morphed into the head of a robin in order to sync up with DC's original sidekick, Robin. I was able to keep most of the raven elements, such as its eye and portions of its beak. The "R" worn on the Boy Wonder's uniform easily replaced the "B" shown on the Ravens’ team logo.
Cleveland Browns/Luke Cage
Although the Browns don’t have a helmet logo, they’ve actually had many logos in their long history, including the “Brownie Elf” logo, which reminded me of Superman villain, Mr. Mxyzptlk, and the “Bulldog” logo, which can recall the Inhumans’ canine alien, Lockjaw. I eventually decided to use the team’s “Football B” logo and adapt it to Marvel’s Luke Cage (aka Power Man). Cage is mostly known by his last name and chain link belt, so merging those elements worked very well.
As far as I can remember, Spider-Man has always been my most favorite literary character of all-time. So I HAD to find a spot for Marvel’s most famous hero in this project somewhere. Based on the team colors alone, the Texans made the most sense. The “star/bull’s eye” becomes a web-swinging Spidey and the entire bull’s head shape is turned into New York City. The crane is a wink to the climax of the 2012 film “The Amazing Spider-Man”. Lastly, the 3 lines across the white plain are to represent the Williamsburg, Manhattan & Brooklyn Bridges. Overall, this one logo could either be my best or worst of the bunch. I’ll just let you decide.
Indianapolis Colts/Professor X
What hero could possibly work for the Colts? Well I’ll just flip the horseshoe upside down. Add some cables to it. Then, place it on the head of a bald man – and voila – It’s Professor X of Marvel’s X-Men using his mutant-finding device, Cerebro! Notice the circular X-Men logo as a final touch. How's that for creativity?
Jacksonville Jaguars/Rocket Raccoon
For Jacksonville, it took some work to morph the team’s jaguar-head logo into Rocket Raccoon of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The eye, teeth and teal tongue have been carried over from the original Jags logo. Since Rocket starred in one of the most popular films of 2014, this logo is particularly timely. If I had done this project prior to that, only true die-hard comic fans would have been familiar with this angry raccoon.
Tennessee Titans/Human Torch
Since the flame is a key part of the Titans’ logo, I wanted to find a hero with fire ability. The top fire-related hero has to be the Human Torch of Marvel’s Fantastic Four. The foursome is known for their blue uniforms and the number 4 chest logo, which replaces the “T” in Tennessee’s team logo.
When I got to the Raiders, one character immediately came to mind – Marvel’s The Punisher. The Raiders of yore and lore were always out to punish teams for entering their stadium. Victory was had by any means necessary. Also, Raiders fans are diehard and menacing, just like the Punisher when he’s dispensing justice to those who break the law.
The Broncos presented a huge dilemma. I couldn’t find a way to do anything successful with their current horse head logo, so I turned to their retro logo. Immediately, I knew I had to find a character whose name begins with a D – if he wears blue and orange, even better. Thankfully, these details exist in DC’s antihero Deathstroke. I just had to create his pistol to replace the white horse and added in his trademark left eye.
San Diego Chargers/Quicksilver
For most fans, the Chargers’ lightning bolt logo represents electricity. I did consider using Spider-Man villain Electro, but I felt that the bolt also represents speed. Since the DC hero Flash is red, I instead decided on Marvel’s blue speedster, Quicksilver. His color and the lightning bolts that run across his chest and waist made this a perfect match.
Kansas City Chiefs/Flash
Originally, I tried to make Green Arrow’s sidekick, Speedy work here for Kansas City. I instead opted to use a more famous DC hero who also wears red and gold – the Flash. I incorporated his chest logo and some speed lines into a slightly skewed arrowhead to give it a sense of motion, which obviously is what the Flash is all about.
The Cowboys’ star is such a simple and classic logo, which actually makes it harder to “hero-ize.” I had hoped to find a hero to complement the star’s two-color simplicity, but instead I went with a whole organization that also uses a simple two-color treatment – Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. Like the Cowboys, this agent organization can also be known as “America’s Team”.
New York Giants/Superman
Yes. I am aware that Superman does not have the Giant-Man ability to grow as tall as Godzilla, but he is considered a “giant” among all-time comic book characters. With the blue & red colors shown in the 1950 New York Football Giants logo, it was meant to be that DC’s Man of Steel is placed among the converted Metropolis skyline. You may easily notice the Daily Planet building, but it was my 6 year-old son that told me to add LexCorp Tower as well (second building from the right).
I had considered many different American Indian heroes (ie, Marvel’s Warpath and DC’s Apache Chief) for Washington. I almost considered Marvel’s The Vision, due to his actual red skin. I instead chose to avoid any association to American Indians and leaned toward the skin of a different color. Sure you could call him “Greenskin”, but Marvel’s Hulk might have a problem with that name and you won’t like him when he’s – y’know. I had thought about using Red Hulk, but decided to stick with the original character. The feathers were replaced by a piece of ripped clothing and I was even able to sneak in the radioactive logo behind the Green Goliath’s head.
A funny story about this Eagles logo . . . I initially figured the beaked helmet of DC’s Hawkman would make for a good look. My biggest problem was creating the giant wing on the side of Hawkman’s helmet. I had spent time sketching it out and had just finished building a frame for it when it suddenly dawned on me that the Eagles have a wing on the side of their football helmets — duh. For me, that one additional element elevated this hero/team combo from good to great.
Green Bay Packers/Green Arrow
Struggling quite a bit with which hero to use for the Packers, I eventually decided on DC’s Green Arrow. A suitable balance between the white “G” and the actual “green arrow” hidden within it was difficult to find. Many attempts were made to make it work, which evolved into what you see here.
The Vikings’ hero was a no-brainer, since Vikings are Norsemen and Marvel’s Thor is the most famous Norse God in comics. The helmet is based on the one worn in the recent Thor films. I loved all the detail in it. Adding Thor’s beard, long hair and chest disc made this logo into one of my personal favorites.
After drawing a blank on Chicago’s “C” logo, I switched gears and focused on their orange bear head logo instead. I figured no one is bigger, fiercer, and orangier than the Thing, from Marvel’s Fantastic Four. The jaggedness of the Bear’s logo worked well with the jagged rocks on this hero. The one big tie-in is that Mr. Clobberin’ Time’s ever-lovin blue eyes are taken directly from the bear head logo.
There’s no better hero to represent Detroit’s blue, hairy lion than Marvel’s own blue, hairy mutant, Beast. I had a lot of fun with this one by re-creating the hands, feet, and head that would humanize the lion and transform it into one of the X-Men’s original members. The eye and wavy lines were carried over from the Lion’s logo. Credit to my nine-year-old daughter for reminding me to include the “X logo” belt buckle.
New Orleans Saints/Batman
For New Orleans, I saw the team colors and re-imagined the shape of the fleur de lis into a version of the famous Batman symbol. I chose to use the Saints’ 1967 shield logo and replaced the team name with “Knights” in honor of DC’s Dark Knight.
For the Falcons, I went with — the obvious — Marvel’s Falcon. Using the throwback Atlanta logo is an ideal fit for the throwback look of the Falcon’s classic costume. Obviously, the name and the red, white, and black colors fit perfectly with both team and hero. All it really needed was a new head and to replace the claw with an arm.
Carolina Panthers/Black Panther
When it came to Carolina, I knew that I had to use Marvel’s Black Panther. The colors worked out just too well. I love the way the blue highlights and gold necklace pops on the shadowy black to carryover the same mysterious look from the team’s logo.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers/Ghost Rider
With the focus being on the skull, Marvel’s Ghost Rider seemed like a good choice to represent Tampa Bay. To carry that through, the crossed swords became motorcycle handlebars. Also, I turned the orange football into the flames around his head and included the penance stare eyeballs. Lastly, the large sword holding the flag became Ghost Rider’s chain weapon.
The focal point of the Seahawks logo has always been its eye. Therefore, it seemed fitting to use Hawkeye of Marvel’s Avengers. I simply incorporated his classic purple mask onto Seattle’s team logo. Admittedly, my six-year-old son wasn’t that impressed at first. He suggested that I needed to include an arrow somewhere, just to emphasize the character’s archer identity a bit more. As usual, he was right.
Los Angeles Rams/Loki
For the Rams, it’s all about the horns. Trying to find a hero with curved horns is a tough task, but a villain is much easier. Marvel's Loki, has the most distinctive golden horns in all of comics. I managed to include the eye, teeth and back of St. Louis' ram head logo to create this God of Mischief.
San Francisco 49ers/Daredevil
The 49ers’ interlocking “SF” logo is tricky, because not many heroes have interlocking letters on their chest. But one well-known exception is Marvel’s Daredevil, who coincidentally has lived in San Francisco a few times in the comics. But instead of using San Fran’s plain oval logo, I opted to get creative with the Niners’ retro shield logo. I replaced the “SF” with Daredevil’s “DD” and replaced the football in the top-right quadrant with a scale to hint at Daredevil’s alter ego as criminal lawyer Matt Murdock. But my favorite part of this logo is that DD’s billy club creates a “4” while the moon and city form the “9.”
The Cardinals needed a hero that has a red mask with some heavy black around the eyes. Got to be, Spider-Man, right? . . . Nope! This is Deadpool, dinkus! Aside from the colors, the clincher for me is the point at the top back of his mask, which is always drawn in comics and mimics the same spot on Arizona's cardinal head logo. Since Marvel's “Merc With A Mouth” does occasionally get decapitated, it seemed fitting to have his head appear ripped off here as well.
This collection contains items designed for my fantasy football league. As much as I love playing, I admittedly am not very good at it.
Partly inspired by the original logo for the NFL Network, I designed this logo for the Braga Fantasy Football League. The league is named after the Braga Bridge from my hometown of Fall River, MA. The 3 stars shown here represents the league's 3 divisions. The colors of navy and green represent the current and original colors of the bridge itself.
For a fantasy football team named the Pylon Pythons, this logo combines both a pylon and a python which forms the letter "P".
A comical logo created for a fantasy football team named Urine Trouble (a.k.a. UTI). I thought it'd be funny if maybe the football shape was perhaps a kidney stone.
With a team named after Tampa Bay RB Doug Martin's nickname "The Muscle Hamster", I drew inspiration from Leonardo DaVinci's famous drawing of the "Vitruvian Man".
Sunday Flag Football
