Matthew Wiltz is a Louisiana logo designer from Carencro, LA. After seeing a Michigan based logo designer take on the task of branding the great lakes, he was inspired to tackle the many bayous of Louisiana.
Louisiana has a vast network of bayous that run throughout the state. We contacted someone from the state wildlife and fisheries department and they were able to send us a spreadsheet of all the bayous in Louisiana!
Because of the unique historical background of Louisiana the names were derived from Spanish, French, and even German languages. Such diversity made it a fun project and incredible branding exercise. Giving each bayou it’s own unique brand identity was really interesting and made them feel special.
Below are the collection of Bayous that Matthew created logo designs for:
