This project, done on spec for a private school, involved graphic design creation, branding, and logo work. Parameters for design submissions: "Use of graphic elements should highlight the classical nature of the pedagogy, the faith-based focus, and should evoke industry, growth, and cultured development." Loved this project - creating a brand from scratch is always fun.

Another ongoing project, begun on Instagram as part of the 100 Days Project. I have a lifelong obsession with quotations, and I wanted to get better at hand-lettering. When a new one is created it gets posted to the Tumblr account. Someday prints of some of these will exist...
Along with a website refresh, Carla Royder Designs & Co. needed an updated logo. The parameters included a symmetrical image incorporating the company initials with modern, bold lines. Square shapes ("no curves!") were preferred, that preference is reflected in the final design.

Bluebird Massage & Mobility was a new company, needing logo and branding design along with its web presence. Parameters for branding included the quotation that inspired the company name, a request for feather/bluebird elements, and a desire for a blue-toned and relaxing color palette.

My sister and I grew up listening to our grandfather's poems - he and my grandmother have lived a life of adventure and through it all he wrote poems. When I was invited by a local gallery owner to show some work, shortly after my sister began on a few painted adaptations of Grandpa's poems, it seemed like the perfect combination. My sister and I showed paintings and Grandpa read his poems at the show's open. I maintain a sub-site with some of the work, in case you're interested.
This began with an attempt to make a baby quilt for my new niece. I bit off much more than I should have been able to chew but it turned out okay. Shortly after finishing the baby quilt I had requests of two kiddo friends - the little girl wanted a Ninja Turtles quilt! Quilting (sewing in general, really) is something I do to keep me going on a hand-made craft. Otherwise, I tend to live as a slave to the computer.
