CNBC 25th Anniversary

Last year CNBC sent out a creative challenge to the ArtWorks team to create a logo to celebrate, commemorate and mark CNBC’s 25th anniversary in 2014. The logo will be used everywhere the CNBC logo is presently used, replacing it for the year and also be incorporated into a big business day campaign roll out.


I was ready for the challenge and started sketching. The project had a tight deadline as 2014 approached, so I dedicated my free time to get a logo developed. I submitted two logos to the cause.

My main logo submission integrates the “25 years” element seamlessly into the traditional logo but with added weight, which emphasizes the milestone without overwhelming this crucial part of the network’s brand identity. The compact horizontal flow enables it to be used across media platforms, particularly web and broadcast.

The second submission brings on a fresh look while maintaining the integrity of the original CNBC brand. The asymmetrical peacock relies more on modern design, creating an expression that reflects how the network will remain vibrant well into the future. The bold colors and shapes take the logo in a new direction that remains familiar, yet is also new and exciting.

Eisenhower State Park

It was a chilly February afternoon at Eisenhower State Park in Denison, Texas, but that did not stop me from enjoying the scenic hiking trails along Lake Texoma.
