Our closest friends Paul and Candace Mackling own and operate Mackling Farms here in Millington, Tennessee. They sell mixed hay, bermuda and straw plus own a growing herd of cattle. Anyone that knows Paul will attest to his character, hard work ethic and honesty.
What they may not know is how creative he is! When Paul showed me the drawing he did for his cattle brand, I am not going to lie, I was slightly intimidated. It was on me to bring his vision to life and make a useful graphic for him to use on not only his cows, but other items like hats and shirts.
Once we finalized the design Paul picked out 4 colors of mesh hats to match his favorite brand of dri-fit shirts. They look great and make a great impression for his growing business.
We also got his wife (and co-owner) Candace specific colors she liked– and their kids too! Anytime I make a business design I enjoy finding creative ways to incorporate the design on useful everyday items that will get noticed by just the right people.

For his hats he chose a specific design that incorporated his logo and his cattle brand. His brand is created from the same font of the logo and made into a uniform circle for ease of metal working and branding.
And for the finished product…
Thank you to Paul and Candace for your continued support of me and my business… and I sure look forward to working together on our next projects!
