Logo Design

The Friends of Fort Malden, a non-profit group, hired me to create a logo mark for their organization. It had to be friendly and inviting, since their volunteers work with children much of the time, but it also had to pay homage to the military history of the Fort. The clients specified that they wanted a soldier, and he had to be in a military uniform appropriate for 1812.

Since 1988, volunteers have worked in conjunction with Fort Malden to create programs and special events that foster interest and help preserve the unique military heritage of the Fort. The annual Military Heritage Days are in August. Please come out to Amherstburg and get all fired up as you discover 200 years of military life. There will be tactical demonstrations by period re-enactors, military bands, and activities for the kids.

Art by the River will take place August 27th and 28th. It is held annually the weekend before the Labour Day and has grown into the largest Arts and Crafts show in Essex County. Stroll the grounds of Fort Malden and browse the selection of work available from over one hundred talented artisans from across Essex County and Ontario.
