My passion? Hand lettering. Good ol' pencil to paper lettering. Don't get me wrong, I love digitizing my lettering so it can be used for multiple applications, but my favorite part is the initial sketching process. I also love sharing this process with others through hand lettering workshops and events—contact me if you're interested!
CD packaging design for Midnight Brigade. Their music is characterized by strong, identifiable lyrics, rich melodies, and warm tones. Inspired by that music, I combined handmade elements and scanned texture to create a rustic, layered look.

Pure Synergy Organics Packaging
Pure Synergy® Organics is The Synergy Company's first line of single ingredient products. Bridging the gap between health supplement and food, we wanted to create something that looked authentic, organic, and rich, just like the ingredients themselves. Inspired by farmers markets, I combined bold type with vector illustrations for these friendly product labels.

I've been obsessed with crafting for as long as I can remember. Growing up my favorite "toy" was the craft bucket—a giant plastic tub filled with a whole mess of craft supplies. Some were leftover an hand me down supplies from family, some were new, and I loved rifling through to se what I could make each day.
These crafted letters are my way of combining my love of typography with my obsession for crafting. Crafted letters make a great statement in branding, editorial layouts, and special event decor. Contact me if you're interested in a custom crafted letter project or workshop!
