the naming of Lucky No. 13

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

I like to name my projects.  Like naming an animal, a car, a drawing or a painting, anything dear to you, there’s something about personalizing things at this level that creates a stronger connection and bond.  I try to allow the things that resonate with me about a particular project to be the things that influence the naming.  Sometimes it works, and sometimes, well…I stick with [insert last name here] Residence.

Lucky No. 13 as a name evolved naturally – I’m not even really sure when I decided that this would be the official name of our homestead project, but at some point I just started calling the land Lucky No. 13.  And it stuck.

I knew that I wanted a logo to accompany this project through its development, and invited my friend Allison Bozeman of BirdDog Press to visit the property with me so that we could talk ideas.

Fortunately Alli knows me well, and we’ve collaborated on lots of fun graphics projects, so when I told her I wanted something a little western, a little mod, something that spoke to the fusion of industrial and organic that I like to achieve in my work,

and something unique, she didn’t look at me like I was asking for the moon.  Thank you, Alli, for creating a fun and fabulous logo for Lucky No. 13!
