Fall 2017 New Design Work
Gah! How is it already going to be December this week?! Thought I’d share some recent of my design work before the snow flies (again). It includes handlettering more 8×10 prints, dream clients, and my work popping up in unexpected places. 🙂 Scroll through to see my Fall 2017 new design work:
Joon+Co Seasonal Prints
You’ve heard me talk about Joon+Co. quite a bit (here and here) if you’ve been reading BG for awhile. Joon + Co is an online ethical fashion shop for the conscious fashionista and part of my Fall 2017 new design work. I created a few handlettered prints for their Fall and Holiday collections. The cheeky and sweet quotes that owner Becky came up with were so fun to letter. Extra sweet: Your print purchase will be donated to the Bay Area Women’s Center in my hometown of Bay City, MI as part of the Artists Giving Back series!
The Lipstick Lens Brand Design
Can you really go wrong with gold foil and Millennial pink vibes?! Of course the answer is NO. 🙂 Especially when it’s for The Lipstick Lens, a new girl boss photography brand in Grand Rapids. Colette, TLL founder and photographer, offers empowering photo sessions for fempreneurs and women needing a brand refresh (headshots for your website and profile photos, anyone?!) Her mom’s life motto was definitely my inspiration while creating the logo and graphic elements. Keep an eye out for her website coming soon!

No Man Left Behind apparel at Seattle Starbucks Roastery
My No Man Left Behind illustration I created for Has Heart was part of the Starbucks x Has Heart pop-up shop in Seattle this September–November. I’ve been not-so-patiently waiting to tell you guys and shared more about it here. 🙂 I couldn’t have guessed how far this design would travel when I first illustrated John’s Vietnam story 3 years ago. Seattle is probably the furthest my physical work has reached so far and it’s all thanks to the Has Heart team who is spreading an even deeper message about our nation’s veterans. Read their mission.
Shut Down Line 5 Print Donation
I donated a handlettered Lake print to my friend’s effort to raise money to Shut Down Line 5. Line 5 is an old pipeline spanning the bottom of Lake Michigan west of the Mackinac Bridge into Canada. It’s owned by a Canadian oil company who has a bad rap in oil spills and who delivers 23 million gallons of oil EVERY DAY through these old pipelines. There’s serious concern an oil spill can happen the issue isn’t acknowledged properly. As a Michigander who relies on & loves our Lakes, you can bet I’m doing what I can!

BRAND REFRESH FOR THE NEW YEAR?
COMING WINTER 2018
I’m really excited for upcoming work in the new year; more handlettered prints for a Grand Rapids-based shop, event materials and brand theme for a national event, and a little sumthin’ sumthin’ for my very first freelance client who’s been with me since 2014 (hint: involves Artprize 2018!) 😉
