Throughout the last 12 years, Armin Vit and Co.'s Quipsologies blog was one of my daily stops for design inspiration. Sadly, 10/17 was the last Quip, a goodbye from the man himself! Way back in 2014, on a whim I sent in some (bad, I know that now!) photographs of my lettering that was laser engraved on some big slabs of beef jerky and my heart stopped when I saw it pop up on Quipsologies. A giant THANK YOU to Armin and everyone who had a part of bringing all the great inspiration to me and countless other designers for over a decade!
A few years ago I had the great pleasure to work with Nickelodeon's awesome team to create the title lettering for their new show, Sunny Day. And at the beginning of August 2017, Sunny Day goes live! Here's an official synopsis: "Sunny is the best hairstylist in her seaside town of Friendly Falls, and the 10-year-old is also a natural leader who thinks every problem can be solved with determination and a bit of creativity!"
Earlier this year I had great fun in producing three cards for Sellers Publishing High Note line. The printing techniques are just beautiful on these, I wish everyone could just see them in person because they're so tactile. We've got gold foil, embossing, metallic foil, just to name a few.
I was asked by the DSN+DEV+OKC group to give a presentation on my work and I had such a great time! I apologize for getting too excited and knocking my own glasses off my face! Not my finest moment, but I think I won the crowd with my enthusiasm. And I got to talk about what I love most! Thanks to everyone that came out and hopefully I've spread the gospel of type and lettering successfully.
Last year I created a series of geometric style icons for the new app, Bout. The official description: "Get inspired with a daily snack of pin-worthy content about design, architecture, decorating, art, photography, fashion, cooking & travel—personalized to your unique tastes. Pin your favorites."
