Sometimes, I am called on for my handmade book making skills. I had the pleasure of making this beautiful 8 page accordion fold book full of inspirational quotes over the weekend.
75 is a handmade, completely one-of-a-kind accordion fold book. It contains 75 inspirational quotes in multiple media formats. From digital booklets to hand glittered typography, 75 illustrates quotes and tantalizes the imagination with discoverable words and quotes. 8 pages fold out with multiple mini booklets within, as well as a quote wheel that can be turned for daily inspiration.
A special thanks to my executive assistant, Burt.
I love my clients!
Corporate identity is so much more than just a logo! This diagram I created gives examples of other places in a restaurant that branding (logo, colors, fonts and icons) can be applied to influence customers and create a positive, lasting impression.

Amy Zane is a custom jewelry designer in Kalamazoo, Michigan. She asked me to do some promotional materials for her new store, and I had a lot of fun making her designs! Thank you Amy!
The Colorado Project is a non profit group of some of the nations (at least Colorado’s) best glassblowers. Every year they choose a person or group to assist in some way through the donations, the sale of their visionary glass and events that raise money for their target charity. Its really a pleasure to donate some of my time to the cause through this thoughtful group of artists.
Hoxeyville Music Festival celebrated their tenth anniversary this year with big names like Bruce Hornsby, Mickey Hart, 7 Walkers and Michigan favorite Greensky Bluegrass. I was very honored to create this years poster and theme. Jake Robinson, founder, luthier and musician came to me with this great idea to have campers all crammed together at a festival. He collects and refurbishes Airstreams, and thought it appropriate to have those along with some Sparty’s and other vintage campers. I got a LOT of inspiration from that and ran with it. What we came up with was a really fun look that carried across all the applications we needed: posters, advertisements, handbills, facebook profile and timeline covers, t-shirts, hats, map and schedule.
In addition to the graphic design needs, I took over social media marketing. I gave them a month-long social media calendar with goals, promotions, contests and more. I gathered PR photography from photographers and vendors, gathered videos, wrote engaging copy for each post and scheduled posts. From July 18 to August 21 total reach on Facebook grew from 33K to over 93K, likes for the page also had a positive growth of 400+ in that month.
