This past saturday was the 10 year anniversary show for ISM:A Community Project. Some of my closest friends and family came out to celebrate the show’s opening and award ceremony with me. I was honored to be in the list of founding “architects”, those who contributed to the development of ISM over the last 10
I’ve worked with the non-profit ISM:A Community Project for several years now, both curating and exhibiting works. I’m especially excited about this show, as I’ve been involved in a couple different ways. I was to help ISM re-brand their identity with the relaunch of their site, by designing their logo and 10 year logo. The
One of my best friends is a lead singer in the Seattle indie band Pocket Panda. Earlier this year I was asked to help them re-brand, and created a modern new logo for them. After many different renditions, we finally came to agreement on the logo you see below. (photo by kiliii fish) Since then,
Last year I worked on a holiday program for the Art of Dance and Ballet Academy. I guess they were happy with my work as they asked me to do their program again this year. This year had a really unique theme, “Emergence”. The program’s main cover was an image provided by the company that
A friend of mine recently approached me about doing a redesigned logo for a friend of her’s company. I looked over the brief and wanted to do something that had the same feel as their old logo but with a more modern approach. The original logo was a one color sans serif font, very basic.
I was recently contacted by a client looking to brand a prototype brew he was creating. I was asked to come up with a logo for his company “Hall of Fame Brewing” a play on words with his last name Hall. I picked a very emblematic format, with a more contemporary feel highlighting a “first
As I’ve been graduated for years now, I sort of miss the challenge of a good assignment. My boyfriend is currently taking a type course and his most recent assignment is to redo a restaurant menu. Being the designer//competative girlfriend that I am, I’ve decided to try the assignment myself! Who knows maybe he’ll learn
Sometimes I find myself in a rut, busy working, but creatively stunted. Its times like these when I turn to my favorite friend…the panda for some cheering up! Looking at pictures of them always makes me laugh and feel good. I had an opportunity to do just this when a friend of mine recently starting
One of my favorite design project is LOGOS. They are essentially the mark that brands your company, product, or service. It gives me a chance to play with type and layout along with a selective color pallet and guidelines, its a fun challenge! I was commissioned to work on logos for a company to use
I recently had the opportunity to pick up some freelance work from the company CitizenNet. (www.citizennet.com) The project was to create some badges for a new twitter game in development. Each badge is a symbol for an award achieved through certain actions. I created two versions, one very flashy and dimensional and another flatter series.
(fan art by Enkayeff) My husband laughs at me for being so invested in some of the games I play on my ipad, but its actually his fault, since he bought it for me in the first place. Every once in awhile I find a game, one of those build a village, aquarium, or zoo,
This last week I’ve had a couple encounters into other artist’s works where I couldn’t help but notice the striking resemblances. The age old saying that there is nothing new is in a way true, but also untrue in that things are constantly being reinterpreted or altered. The illustration was a hair study done with
Font: Munchhausen This weekend Matt and I journeyed down to China Town in Los Angeles to ring in the new year at the local temple. We journeyed around the area to shoot photos and take in all the festivities. After searching through my photos I found a good amount of ones I really liked, and
This weekend I had the pleasure of going to a colleague//friend’s exhibit at the Japanese American Museum in (Little Tokyo), Los Angeles. The show is titled “Supernatural” and its description states: “Traditions are an integral part of every community. Some of these come from superstitions that our ancestors carried with them…Supernatural features the work of
For my bridal shower I wanted to create these super cute tea bag cookies, which I had seen online, as a party favor for my guests. I saw these cookies a few different times, and thought about how amazing they would be. The cookies are listed to be made with shortbread dipped in chocolate. (Photo
One of the hardest things for me planning my upcoming wedding reception was figuring out how to design the whole thing. There’s so many beautiful pre-printed designs available these days that itd be easy to head to Michael’s and just buy a box set, add some names and send them out. However, being a designer,
Its always a struggle to figure out what to do for the new years. While its fun to go out, its expensive, and crowded, and takes a lot of time and energy, but staying home just doesn’t seem to do justice for the new year. This year, we found the perfect medium, when we were
I was really excited when I received an invitation from an old roommate letting me know she was getting married… in Hawaii! I think a lot of people have “destination” weddings knowing not many people will come, but there was no way I was gonna miss this. Of course, the wedding was the main reason
I had the great fortune of being asked to do some freelance work for the Great Park in Irvine, CA. I posted before about the seasonal pins I had done for them, and that project actually came after this one. However, I’ve been lazy and haven’t exactly been posting things on time (sorry!) Back in
One of the best things about dating another designer is getting to bounce ideas off one another. Often times I’ll send Matt ideas for things I’m working on, and he’ll send me projects he’s working on and we’ll get one another’s take on things. Recently Matt has been doing some extra freelance work for his
I am a graphic designer//illustrator based out of Orange County, CA specializing in packaging and print design. My goal is to design clean, appealing, and functional pieces that are contemporary, and fashionable. My designs are done primarily using Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign.
