I recently did a logo for two entrepreneurs who are starting a tire business based in Halifax, called Trendy Tire. They wanted something simple, clean, with a bit of a friendly, old-fashioned twist to give it some character. So I went with a very simple tire shape, bold block letters for the type, and a vintage texture.
Here is a branding mockup I did with the logo to show how it would look on different products and business documents.
And last but not least, here it is on some t-shirts!
