This is another group of logo concepts. The Forsythe Group engaged in multiple businesses mostly geared toward the business realty, mortgage, and business manufacturing areas. The logo was one of the Pearson Design projects that ended when the studio closed in 1996. As far as I know these concepts were never shown to the client.
The Employment Journal was a tabloid style newsprint publication for career and employment news in Louisiana. It was originally managed by Erik Pearson the brother of the late Alicia Pearson of Pearson Design. I did mostly the final design and production for several issues until Peason Design closed.
SunSplash Pools was a swimming pool construction and supply company in West Monroe, Louisiana. As a client for Pearson Design they needed a logo and print advertising for both color and black & white newsprint projects. They wanted a design that would mix a sun object and water without using some of the common sun graphics that you typically see. I think the final version here was completed after about three or four rejected revisions. Sadly I don’t have the original development work.
Bayou Internet might still be around. Pearson Design completed a full project for Bayou Internet soon after they started selling dial-up internet services. This was the first commercial project where I worked as account executive, designer, and art director. It was very cool to be given such responsibility before I even graduated from college. Pearson Design handled the logo, website, and some print advertising for Bayou Internet in late 1995 through early 1996.
I don’t have the original logo files or the print advertisements, but I do have this image of the final website. You should note this design was completed in HTML 3.2.
These are a couple of the projects completed for Community Trust Bank while I was working at Pearson Design. One was an informative two color brochure for their telephone banking program. The other was the design for a loan application kiosk. I find it ironic how the web has changed things.
This was a commercial for KMLB radio in Monroe, Louisiana. Video elements were put together with Formz and ElectricImage with final production using Avid Media Suite Pro. This is one of the few video projects that I have a copy of.

Technically this my first professional website. Completed for Pearson Design in 1995 during my paid internship. This site was designed in a text editor using HTML 2.0 before RFC 1942, so no
