Every March/April, I hide myself away in my office, find a good holiday station on Pandora, and get to work designing for this year’s November/December holiday season. While I still have a bit more holiday work to do, I’m finally coming up for air and excited to share some of this year’s work for Minted’s 2019 holiday design call!
Today I want to share a quick process video I was able to export from the Procreate app, on my Ipad Pro. This video takes a roughly 3-hour drawing session and speeds it up to 23 seconds! ‘City’ is a recent submission to Minted.com’s latest foil-pressed wedding invitation design challenge. Enjoy!!
Motor Om is a new non-profit in the Detroit area, with a mission to make an impact in their community through yoga. This summer, I had the honor of designing the Motor Om logo, as Tina and Amy prepared to share their mission with the world. I’m so excited about the finished design - I think we all got a kick out of the subtle nod to a ‘mobile-home’ (or trailer). It’s been a few months since the logo has been finalized and Motor Om has made their big debut! I recently had the opportunity to participate in a Motor Om yoga session and it was such a great way to start my day! Not only are these ladies talented yogies, you can’t help but pick up a little bit of their beautiful and creative energy through spending a little time with them. I’m so excited for all of the people who will have access to yoga with these amazing ladies!! Logo featured below in this super cute photo of Tina and Amy, by Val Weiss Photography.

Two years ago, I had the great honor of designing a suite of wedding paper goods for my awesome and inspiring friends, Tina & Jim. Not only did they plan a gorgeous and thoughtful wedding – it was featured in this fall’s issue of The Knot - Michigan!! I’m so humbled that my work was included in this feature, alongside so many incredible wedding vendors and this beyond lovely couple. (Special thanks to The Billings for capturing my work so elegantly, and to Tina & Jim for being one of my favorite couples to work with!)
This is just a small sampling of the many wonderful photos I've received over the last few months, from friends and family, of my 'Mother Like No Other' Mother's Day card - available in the Minted section at Target!! You guys - all of your support, encouragement and excitement mean SO much. Special shout out to my mom - who has always been my #1 fan, and was the first to run out to Target and snap up my card. This card's dedicated to you, mom <3
The Detroit Flyhouse presented the Celestial Bodies Student/Teacher showcase last Tuesday night - and needless to say, I left feeling ridiculously inspired. My friend, George, said I was 'high on circus'. That seems to be the best way to describe it! If you ever have the opportunity to check out a showcase, or see the Detroit Circus perform, I can't recommend it enough! I also had the pleasure of creating this hand-lettered design for the event. The opportunity to combine two of my favorite things - design + circus arts? Priceless! Thank you to Micha and the Detroit Flyhouse for the opportunity!!
Super excited to announce my Evening Bloom wedding suite, featuring hand-painted florals and delicate typography, is now available at Minted! The suite includes a variety of matching pieces to help you meet your wedding paper needs! Special thanks to my lovely friend, Daniela, for inspiring this suite!
