We designed this invitation cover to reflect John C. Brittain's work as a civil rights pioneer and law professor, specializing in education law and housing and school segregation. Mr. Brittain loves to read and travel, so we thought logos reminiscent of travel stickers & stamps would be a nice visual way to portray his meaningful work.
Sometimes we get to start from scratch. Sometimes it's best not to break a good thing when you've got it! When Brenda Trigg asked us for a fresher look of their existing signature, we were happy to jump in. With a fresh use of existing colors, exploration of a clean san serif font with roots in tradition, and the addition of "Jackson, Mississippi", the new look was launched.
What do Mississippi highway signs, blues guitars and the George Washington Bridge have in common? A visual marriage representation of Mississippi Center for Justice's event in New York City. We had fun dreaming up the look of this invitation.
We modified our existing logo to work well within the tiny space requirements on the Expedia and Orbitz search pages. Now you will see Southern Airways Express alongside the big cheeses like Delta, United and American Airlines! iflysouthern.com!!!
It's ALL about the color, but sometimes it just looks darn good in black and white, too :) It's also ALL about the pressman, and we got a good one at Hederman Brothers today for EastGroup Properties' annual report. (with Jim Garrison, Ramey)
Columbia Pictures picked it up and produced a movie starring James Stewart. My grandfather was welcomed onto the set as part of the team and monitored its accuracy to the series which was eventually published as a novel. He was very meticulous about the details in his stories. He researched and lived in the locations where his stories were set to assure that every last detail down to the color and style of a table cloth were historically and culturally accurate.
In 2014, the United Nations Foundation connected supporters with the work of the United Nations to HELP change lives and change the world. Through our work together to build support for the UN, improve global health, advance Sustainable energy & climate solutions, and promote girls’ and women’s rights, we helped give more people the chance to lead healthy, productive lives and helped move the world closer to a sustainable future. Here are highlights of the work our supporters made possible in 2014.

Margaret Deavour's passion for cycling inspired her to come to Flynn Design for a custom jersey design for her business, Two Rivers Realty. The design incorporates meaningful personal visual messages such as: a tribute to her parents, a nod to Mississippi, and an eco-friendly encouragement to others to "Ride More! and Dive Less!".
With a new design concept, old soda bottles become stackable blocks, toy trucks, and other useful educational tools. In a remote rural village in Kenya or Malawi, you won't find a toy store, but you'll probably find a shop selling soda.
Sitting in the fourth-floor conference room of the New York offices of Pentagram, the world’s largest independent design consultancy, Paula Scher alternately describes The New School’s new visual identity as “beautiful,” “revolutionary,” and “something that’s never been done before.” Which is “amazing,” she says, considering that it could have easily ended up being “one big mess.” “If you had asked me from the outset, I would have said that with the number of individuals involved and with all the needs that had to be met, designing something recognizable and distinctive would be incredibly difficult,” says Scher, a partner at Pentagram and one of the world’s leading graphic designers. “That many opinions on a design are usually bad for the design.” But when it came to her partnership with The New School, Scher says, “the opposite was true!” Employing its own iterative, design-inspired process, the university harnessed [...]
Flynn Design's insight:
"...harnessed the collective creativity and problem-solving skills of hundreds of people in various disciplines across the university to achieve a unifying visual identity."
“Something miraculous happened with this dynamic,” says Scher, ... “You could say it was a happy accident, but really, nothing ever happens accidentally.”
The Alignment Jackson Career Exploration Fair gave JPS freshmen the chance to check out various professions by actually doing the work.
Flynn Design's insight:
What matters to us: our children! And getting them excited about new technologies and careers that they may not be aware of or that they want to learn more about. That is what this Career Fair was all about and we were so happy to be able to participate. Students asked about the process, about summer jobs, if I brought "work" home with me (haha) and what they should study to prepare for a career in communication design.
Just found this news clip coverage (that's me in the background in the hat :) demonstrating how augmented reality works with Mohawk Paper, who generously donated lots of printed samples that students took home with them.
