Koru Logo for Photographer Melanie Burford

Mel Burford, a photographer with The Dallas Morning News contacted me about designing a logo for her big push to get herself and her work online.

I completed this design a little while ago and am waiting to see it on her website.


Mel and I met 10 years ago in Chicago over pancakes, blueberries and freshly squeezed orange juice. We hit it off straight away as if we had been friends for years. We laughed so hard.

Yes, the memory is that vivid.

Over the years, she has shared much about her beloved New Zealand – the beauty, the customs, the history, the land, the people, the wine, the sheep jokes... I digress :-)

Often when she returned from her trips to New Zealand, she would bring me all sorts of beautiful jewelry and one in particular is a beautiful jade Koru.


So, this logo has two parts:
The icon which is a Koru and her name which is set in the wonderful, lively, warm typeface, Bree.

One day I hope we'll get to travel together to New Zealand.
