Vogue Footwear was looking for a versatile logo that could be applied to their products at various sizes — from a large gold foil version on the outside of each shoebox to a tiny embossed version on the bottom of every shoe. I provided the final logotype, and its coloring and implementation on the products and web were the work of the Vogue design team.
Bettina and Brian were married at Gull’s Way Estate in Malibu, California. My calligraphy — all warm grey ink on cream paper — was letterpressed in the invitation suite, as well as hand-written on day-of items like place cards, menus, and dessert table labels.
Jacey & Grant’s wedding was an impeccably styled soirée at LA’s Smog Shoppe. My involvement started with calligraphing kraft paper invitation boxes in whimsical black script, and designing digitized calligraphy for the invitation and program. Calligraphy for the wedding day included escort and place cards, and hang tags for the buffet table.
Jessica and Jake wanted to greet guests to their Ojai, California, wedding with something special, so they hired me to design a rubber stamp to fit in the blank space of their gift tags, which they hung on the gift baskets they gave to each guest.
Cormier Creative is a Cincinnati graphic design studio specializing in invitation and publication design. Owner Sara Cormier was looking for a hand-lettered logo that captured her company’s fun side, while staying true to the clean, modern look of her own work. After a couple rounds of pencil sketches, we agreed on a direction for the brand and I had a lot of fun designing the perfect flourish to finish the logo off.
This small order of 40 white-on-red envelopes were for a birthday bash in Alabama. I was tasked with creating a more fun design than traditional calligraphy envelopes, so I settled on a combination of lowercase script splashed across the paper at a diagonal, and a block of small caps print. The #10 envelopes are a mouth-watering shade of red, which is utterly unbeatable when paired with white ink.
