Our Client

Gator Creek Gardens in Carson, Washington offers high-end landscaping and gardening supplies and other related services to our surrounding community. We annually enjoy a load of Hemlock (splinter free!) bark mulch from their store. Tony and Abby Coates are generous with their time contributing much to our local community, and they bring a smile every time I see them. The approached me to develop a logo for them, along with supporting vehicle graphics.

Our Process

The name was catchy for sure, and while gators are fascinating and enjoyable, they are not especially native to the Pacific Northwest. Consequently, while we did some research on alligators, the "gatorness" of the logo was to take a back seat to the objectives of approachability, readability, and self-containment.
