Logo Design For Iampeth: Created By Don Marsh

This year has a completely different work load in store for me. I have committed to my usual local teaching venues but I have cut down on my travel venues to do the work as President of Iampeth. One of the first decisions I made was selecting the designer of our new logo. If you are not familiar with his work, please let me introduce Don Marsh. He is a Cincinnati based artist, designer, calligrapher and author. Don is a long time friend and his work has been admired by many of us online. His professional work may be seen on branding for Febreeze, Butterball and John Morrell among many others. Don began his career as an illustrator in 1970 and by 1980 his professional focus was exclusively letterforms, especially for commercial use. His passion for letterforms is as great, if not greater, today as it was 33 years ago. I have long admired and appreciated his design skills and his knowledge of the history of English Roundhand. He is passionate about the history and progression of script lettering and is so generous in sharing his knowledge and skill. It was so exciting to watch him draft and complete this beautiful logo that Bickham himself would be proud to display. Enjoy the abundance of ovals in this elegant design and please visit Don’s website at or find him on Facebook to see his beautiful calligraphic artwork. I look forward to putting this logo to good use at our conference. It is the first of many wonderful things I have in store for you.” Heather
