Logo Design: Virginia Heritage
had the honor of designing a logo for my friend
Richard Williams, who had just debuted his new tour
business in Lexington, which focuses on the
religious heritage of this beautiful, historic
Shenandoah Valley village. I started with a
familiar graphic line-art image of a southern
steeple-church. I then used Photoshop's filters to
give it a rough appearance. The font I selected is
called 'Texas Hero' and I wanted to create
something that would be elegant and strong no
matter what color or size that it was used for.
Also the logo had to work in reverse printing.
According to his web page
announcement at: Lexington Virginia Attractions: VA
HERITAGE TOURS: Historic tours of Lexington guided
by award-winning historian and Civil War author
Richard G. Williams, Jr. Our tours focus on the
religious heritage of Lexington with special
emphasis on the Christian faith of Thomas J.
"Stonewall" Jackson and General Robert E. Lee.
Sites on the walking tour include Lee Chapel on the
campus of Washington & Lee University, Virginia
Military Institute, Stonewall Jackson Memorial
Cemetery, Lexington Presbyterian Church, & R E
Lee Memorial Episcopal Church. Considerable time is
also spent visiting sites related to Jackson's now
famous Sunday school for slaves & free blacks.
This is an inspiring and unique tour unlike any
other you will experience. Tours may be customized
and generally last approximately 2 hours. For more
