Gypsy Heart Paper Co.

This was an idea for a logo that I created for a stationery business. I gave the design an earthy, vintage, bohemian feel because I felt that best communicated my design style. I wanted to give the feeling of being out on the open road and having no destination. Like the open road, with design there are no limitations.

I played around with the logo and put it on various backgrounds. I gave the logo a stamped effect to see what it would look like on marketing materials.

Paper Crown Designs

This is a marketing postcard I made for a stationery company that was a sister company to an event planning studio. I also created the logo for the company as well. The idea behind the logo was a vintage stamp look. I also designed the southwestern stationery suite that is pictured on the card. The company was located in Gilbert, AZ.

This Is Oregon

This was a postcard redesign I did of This Is Oregon. I didn't have to, I just wanted to. It was one of those creative rainy Saturdays. Looking at it now, I don't think I would use the same cursive font and I would definitely change the sizing on a few things. I think it's always good to reflect after letting something sit for a while because it shows how much you have grown as a designer.  I really loved the photograph used and the way the layered opacity gave some depth and interest. 


Valentine's Day Greeting Cards

I made these for someone I used to like for Valentine's Day. I no longer like him. Maybe I should go back in and put "dis" in there. 


Hand Lettering T-shirt Design

I had a lot of fun with this. This was a design a silent nod to my dog Gypsy. A friend of mine had a booth at a farmer's market and wanted to start selling t-shirts as well as organic items. This is one of the my designs for that. 


1920's Style Wedding Invitation

An invitation suite I created for a 1920's inspired wedding. The suite included a directions card, a menu card and the invitation itself. It was wrapped in a cloth style pocket with a silk ribbon to tie everything together. The presentation was beautiful and the bride was elated with the finished product. The suite was also shown in one of Arizona's most popular bridal magazines.
