There’s a first for everything. I had never created such a structured, geometric logo prior to Andrea’s! I love trying new things, executing new ideas and pushing my own boundaries. This was no exception. Though this logo took a little longer than expected, I am seriously over the moon with how it turned out! And so was Andrea! That’s a win-win if you ask me!
Small businesses are so stinking fun to create for! Why? Because the creative people behind the businesses are SO passionate about what they’re doing/starting. Joyride Midwest is a super fun company that will be launching in Springfield, MO soon. I can’t wait for it. Since it hasn’t launched yet, I will refrain from saying much, rather, here are the fun designs I created for them! Enjoy!
Last October I went to a workshop for creatives in the wedding industry. While I was there I met Amber, the owner of Moody Blue Events! I had a blast creating with her and getting to know her during the workshop. Little did I know that when I back home to Springfield after the workshop there would be an inquiry from my new friend to help her re-brand her thriving biz! Of course I was all in.
Amber’s company has a romantic and moody vibe to it, so combining night sky elements and floral elements seemed like the best direction to go. I ended up creating her Primary logo, Alternate logo, a submark and Instagram highlight icons. And this it the result!
Oriwia was a gem to work with. When she emailed me all the way from New Zealand requesting my branding services, I was completely stunned! I feel so blessed to have clients from all over the world, and I’m so thankful that social media makes that possible!
Oriwia is a couples photographer based out of a little beach town in New Zealand, which is the first place on earth to see the sunrise each day! Say WHAT! So cool, right?
Oriwia said that the NZ landscape and culture are important things to who she is and her business, so she wanted me to incorporate as much of that as I could into her branding! I’m all about organic and natural things, so I was game!
The logo she ended up choosing for her final primary logo is featured in the first photo below, a hand holding a bouquet of New Zealand flowers: the New Zealand Fern, a Daffodil and a Pohutukawa flower. The other illustrations incorporated some of the natural landscapes found in her town!
I loved working with Oriwia and I think the final pieces turned out great!
Kendal came to me with a simple idea, she wanted just one logo with hands intertwined. I'm so down to create for clients who already have a vision of what they're wanting. Of course I love building something from scratch, but I also dig bringing someone else's vision to life! It makes me giddy!
Here's the simple logo Kendal asked for, plus some of her photos included! Isn't she amazing? LOL. I think I say that about everyone I work with. I just get to work with the best people ever!
Illustration is my jam. I love creating hand-crafted, detailed designs for small businesses, it feels so personal and intimate!
Lizabeth was so fun to work with. When she was telling me about her brand she described it as "genuine and steamy love." UGH. I loved that. And I immediately knew some figures and desert had to be incorporated into the illustrations.
She ended up choosing the desert logo and the sun logo! You can check out her work here.
KT was a dream to work with! She's a photographer based out of LA and not only does she take warm, intimate and just downright beautiful photos of people in love, but she was so kind throughout the whole branding process! I hope to someday hire her to take photos of Parker and I when we're out west.
I created four logos for her to choose from and she chose the bouquet and the pinky promise as her finals! If you'd like to check out her website with my logo on it (and hire her to take your photos), click here.
