The second award winner is for a large commercial bakery in New Jersey,Angel Bakeries. The award was for a new, high quality flat bread product called Sababa Bread. The goal was to create a totally unique looking home-style logotype design that included a symbol with dynamic sun burst behind a circular burst of wheat stalks and a custom,stylized hand lettering.

The third logo award is for a new, private security service in Jersey City,
New Jersey named Tavent Protection Services. The client wanted some kind of recognizable shield symbol with the letters TBS and a star included. Ted
customized a classic metal shield shape with metal rivets to accent the shield and designed a contemporary looking star with wrap around typography for the full company name. The logo will appear in American Graphic Design and Advertising 31 to be Published in 2017.
The forth award winning logo is for a high-end assisted care home in Upper Montclair, New Jersey called “Horizon Manor”. The award was for the logo created for two Victorian style manors. The old world,classy atmosphere of the homes inspired Ted to create an unique custom hand lettering with a spencerian script style and rich, gold Victorian textured background. The final result was a logotype that looked like a high-end hotel and conveyed the class and charm of their assisted care facility.
The final award winner is a new web site design for the same assisted care home in Upper Montclair,“Horizon Manor”. With the web site, Ted used the same Spencerian script hand-lettered logotype and rich, gold Victorian textured background on every page. Ted personally shot each photo including both exteriors and many interiors,including their living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and side rooms. An easy to navigate slide show enables prospective clients quickly view each room in each building. Ted used several stock photos of seniors, who have the typical look of their guests, but the decision to use stock was important to protect the privacy of actual guests.
