New Work: Tom Poland. A Southern Writer.

We're excited to share the new logo we created for Columbia-based author, Tom Poland. Tom is the author of twelve books, a columnist and frequent lecturer about the South, its people, traditions, lifestyle and changing culture. Tom is first and foremost a Southern storyteller, so we wanted the logo to be symbolic of his contributions to that grand old Southern tradition of spinning yarns on the front porch and in the parlor, yet still be at home in the modern world of blogs and social media. We found visual inspiration in the wood-type posters from the 40s and 50s that were created to advertise another subset of Southern storytellers: bluegrass and country music artists.
