I took my designs from the 100 day project and developed a card line. At first I was going to print them out and sell directly and wholesale. After looking into it I decided to sell digital downloads. I have had my own creative business before and I realize that I enjoy projects more that running a product based business. You can find all my cards in my etsy shop
I love minimalist patterns. Here are a few I am working on.
My friend Michelle always makes me laugh and she has a style all her own. I wanted to make a calling card that reflected her personality and according to her I accomplished my goal!
Here are the business cards I designed for Edna Vees. The colors have changed from the style sheet I created.
I have also entered a few of my designs into the Minted + Pottery Barn Kids/Teen Challenge....
Here is one of my entries for the competition....
3 Rivers Rugby asked me to design some monsters. Here is what I have designed so far...
I am excited to work on the branding identity for Edna Vees Pub n Grub. Here is the style sheet I put together for them.
Summer in the Pacific Northwest is the best!
A friend asked me to design a logo for her fitness business. Here is the brand style guide I put together.
Here is an illustration I have been working on for a friend to go on a navy blue t-shirt.
Here are some designs I did for clients. I really enjoyed designing the illustration for the women's retreat. I love the colors.
I usually start my designs by cutting paper. Sometimes I find it easier than drawing. The duck ended up as a design but with a different color palette. I used some of the shapes and flowers in another design. I didn't end up using the entire composition. I really like using paper because the shapes can end up a surprise.
Every year I make peppermint bark for Christmas. It is by far my biggest weakness. I use both dark chocolate and white chocolate. My favorite is the white chocolate. I think if I just used white chocolate I would eat the entire batch.
I use a bag of Guittard Extra Dark Chocolate Chips and Guittard White Chocolate Chips. I melt the chocolate separately and then swirl them together. Then I add crushed candy canes on top. After it has dried just break into pieces and put into a cello bag with ribbon and you have a gift!
I am excited to hear Lisa Congdon and Kate Bingaman-Burt speak on Friday!
This is my most popular post on the 100 day project so far. I am on number 52. I decided to do this project so I could be consistent and develop my skills as a designer/illustrator. It is a bit nerve racking putting yourself out there each day but has been well worth it. :)
