Custom illustration and print design for PatternedApp.com

patterned-thumb

Becca at PatternedApp.com has an amazing application that simplifies the fulfillment process for Etsy sellers and other creative businesses. She was heading to a bridal show and needed an illustration and a print postcard to pass out to the attendees to promote her app. I created a simple illustration that showed the confusion that can happen to a customer between purchasing an item and receiving it. I then created a two-sided postcard design using the illustration and some promotional copy. While at the show, she offered one of my pre-made logos as a free giveaway! There are plans to create a more detailed illustration that includes some character design in the future. I can't wait to work with Becca again. If you have a creative business, definitely check out PatternedApp.com. ...continue reading

For a good time, design free printables

deep-breath-cards-ex

I don't normally dabble in print these days, but I can and sometimes still do, especially when the project is fun. The blog I work for, Offbeat Bride, commissioned these "Deep Breath Cards" for brides and grooms looking to be reminded to take a break during the wedding to make sure they're not rushing through it and are having fun. Printables are awesome because it's a real value add for readers and has the potential for some viral marketing. Plus, they're just fun. I really hope to find more ways to provide free printables and web downloadables, especially when I launch my new secret project. Tease tease tease! ...continue reading

Redesigned: BillieGrissomLaw.com

billiegrissom-port

Billie is a collaborative law attorney in Washington. She is also one of my latest (and amazingly nice) clients! Billie's site had a calming, tranquil feel, since that's probably what all of her clients really need during times of legal stress. So we kept that zen feeling with an interface refresh, new contact form, plus lots of SEO changes. Adding in the power of WordPress on the Genesis platform gives Billie the power to change her site content herself as well with tons of search engine cred.  (That's the beauty of WordPress. /fangirl) So if you're in need of collaborate law services in the Bothell, Washington area, I think we all know who to call.
