Thistle is a non-profit organization committed to providing affordable housing for working families, disabled and elderly residents in Boulder County. They work to ensure Boulder is an accessible place to live for all income levels.
When approaching their rebrand, I decided on a geometric Thistle icon paired with approachable typography. The five dots above the flower symbolize community and also represent their brand pillars.
Colorado-based Stonewear offers women’s athletic apparel for climbing, hiking, running, and yoga. For their Fall Preview guide, I was able to apply their newly re-designed brand assets to a catalog layout.
I was also involved in the photoshoot of lifestyle images featured in the layout, directing specific shots for the catalog. Recommendations were also made to style the model shots, focusing on natural postures and varied poses to highlight each garment.
I also worked on various print collateral pieces for this client.
Sir Bananas is a drink that combines milk and bananas in a fun and unexpected way. I was involved in this project from the start, exploring name options, design styles, and creating supporting illustrations. After a design direction was selected, I illustrated a variety of different flavor profiles to better inform consumers on this new product.
Jacki + Ryan Wedding Invites
Jacki and Ryan's wedding invites were designed to fit their outdoorsy, adventurous lifestyle. For a rustic, farm wedding, I incorporated hand lettering and simple mountain illustrations on kraft paper. The overall invitation suite was tied together with teal baker's twine, printed envelope liners, custom postage stamps and washi tape accents.
Instead of printing wedding programs for the big day, I hand lettered a large chalkboard, carrying in elements of the invitation design.
Twisted Pine Brewing Co.
Crafted in Boulder, Colorado, Twisted Pine experiments with new flavors throughout their wide variety of core and limited-release varieties. In keeping with the brand's off-the-wall style, I designed a number of limited release labels following their package system, incorporating playful typography, collaged illustration and quirky copywriting.
Cultivate provides premium, on-site gift experiences for companies that want to reward their top performing employees. When updating their brand, I wanted to create something premium and inviting. The icon represents a wrapped gift and the positive experience that Cultivate provides event planners and attendees. The new identity was applied to stationery systems, digital presentations, building signage, and a website.
Camber Outdoors, formerly OIWC, advocates for women's leadership in the outdoor industry by providing professional development programs and mentorship opportunities. I was involved with the naming process, brand strategy, development and building of brand assets.
Koko is a Japanese term meaning "here" – and combines the welcoming atmosphere of a local coffee shop with the convenience of carry-out. The owners drew from their extensive background in the restaurant industry to bring together this unique space to Taos, NM. The identity design features a geometric butterfly – a modern take on the traditional Japanese kamon, or family crest. The name Koko is also carefully incorporated into the custom pattern created for this project.
