Group of logos designed by MLAY DESIGN
Moncla Fine Homes & Woodworking logo
Logo for Moncla Fine Homes in Elizabeth City, NC, alluding to the client's classical training in fine woodworking combined with the latest in sustainable, environmentally-friendly building techniques and materials
Richmond Navigator Media logo
Regional publisher Advertising Concepts, Inc. was seeking to unify its disparate media (four magazines, a website and four broadsheet shopper publications) under a single banner.  The Richmond Navigator name was already being used for the website and was selected as the nameplate that all the other entities would be organized under. The new logo (this stacked version and a horizontal version) ties into the navigation concept while referencing the colors of the original Richmond Navigator web banner.
Connecticut Repertory Theatre logo
The lighting used in stage productions provided the inspiration behind this proposed logo design for Connecticut Repertory Theatre.
Dan Schutt Band logo
Logo designed for the Dan Schutt Band, a Richmond-area band playing a blend of blues, rhythm &  blues and classic rock. Often performing as a 3-piece band, bandleader Daniel Schutt's emotive and often fiery guitar-playing is prominent in the band's sound and was a natural basis for the logo design.
Cottages on Roanoke Island logo
Logo designed for Cottages on Roanoke Island, a business providing a variety of cottage accommodations, as part of a website design project because the client had no pre-existing branding (Outer Banks This Week/OneBoat)
Roanoke Island DesignWorks logo
Logo for a proposed online art business based in Manteo, NC, a small town on Roanoke Island on North Carolina's Outer Banks.
Dining With Friends logo
Logo for a program of awareness-raising and fund-raising dinners sponsored by supporters of Outer Banks Hotline, a crisis intervention center and domestic violence shelter
Downtown Books logo
Logo for Downtown Books in Manteo referencing the bookshop's prominent "tower"
SafeNet Company logo
The gray diamond-shaped grid in this logo design for SafeNet, a construction risk management firm, represents both heavy industry, such as commercial construction, and the safety net implied by the company name. The Caution Orange and Caution Green colors have long been associated with the risk management field.
Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse logo
The original Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse was raised above the water on a steel girder framework. In this logo design the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse type below the lighthouse rendering subtly references that original steel framework.
Dare Education Foundation logo
The goal behind this logo for the Dare Education Foundation in Dare County, NC, was to create a identity mark that symbolized uplift, positive movement, support, striving for excellence, etc., without succumbing to the visual cliches that typically plague education-oriented designs.
Outer Banks Public Safety Auxiliary logo
Because weather is such a routine factor in safety issues along the Outer Banks, in this logo for Outer Banks Public Safety Auxiliary I chose to incorporate a blazing sun behind the nameplate at the center of the shield and waves at the shield's bottom.
Heron Pond Montessori School logo
Logo for Heron Pond Montessori School for use on letterhead, book bags, t-shirts and other promotional items.
EvansPR business card/identity
Business card for Elizabeth Evans, a public relations professional, reflecting the colorful, yet sophisticated elegance of the identity I designed for her firm 
Seaside Vacations logo
Logo for Seaside Vacations, a vacation rental company on North Carolina's Outer Banks
Northeastern Community Development Corporation logo
Sometimes the primary challenge of a logo design is simply the client's name. Like many non-profits, Northeastern Community Development Corporation is saddled with an extremely unwieldy name, so unwieldy that the organization is know community-wide as simply NCDC. I focused on that with an early 20th century populism-style sunburst design.
Take Back The Night logo
The Take Back The Night logo was a off-shoot of the event poster illustration process. During creation of the poster I realized that the sexual assault awareness-raising and prevention initiative would eventually need its own standalone mark and the artwork at the center of the poster design leapt out as an obvious solution to the problem.
Outer Banks Sporting Events logo
Outer Banks Sporting Events supports a wide range of athletic events, so its logo needed to depict boldness, movement and action while being flexible enough to be used in diverse promotional settings and strong enough to compete with numerous event specific logos and other graphics.
Onmi Community Services, Inc. logo
Logo for Omni Community Services, a foster care support organization, as it was used with the physical address on business envelopes
Logo for The Refuge on Roanoke Island
Logo and signage art for a long-term campground on Roanoke Island on North Carolina's Outer Banks.
