Life in full color

Logo, business card and brochure design.

Cara Brown, an amazing watercolorist from California, needed a new brand to promote her work at the NY Art Expo. I was honored when she asked me!

Inspiration came from Cara's beautiful paintings. They are very vibrant and clear. They are also very distinctive, which meant I wanted to incorporate Cara's personal mark... her signature.

Andrew Lynch

Logo and business card design.

Andrew Lynch is a photographer and traveller. Before departing on a long trip, he wanted a logo and "non-business" business card that would represent him personally.

I went through a number of concepts before we narrowed it down to a flock of sparrows. We were both very happy with the symbolism.

Moonlight Picnic

Invitation

This birthday party invitation was inspired by the guest of honour's fascination with the power and symbolism of the moon.

I found the photos and illustration online, and altered them from their originals. I could not find a source for the photography, but did obtain permission to use the illustration. The original was created by Fyodor Pavlov and can be seen on the cover of "Moonlight Picnic", an album by Gelber & Manning (http://gelberandmanning.com/).

Antique Baby Shower

Save-the-date and shower invitation.

It was a lot of fun working on this atypical baby shower invitation. The parents' theme is antique black and white. I used Victorian imagery to create the antique feel, but kept it otherwise modern through it's simplicity. Color was added to soften the invitation.
