Puerto Vallarta

I shot this photo in Puerto Vallarta last year and it had been sitting in my Downloads folder since we got back. I knew I wanted to do something with it, but no idea what. So I started playing with the colors which I think gave me 80's vibes so I tried to make a modern 80's throwback. For some reason purples, pinks, magenta and neon outlines say 80's to me.

Clothes & Clothes Sans

Over the past month I've been developing a pair of complementary fonts titled "Clothes" and "Clothes Sans." I wanted to do something that was completely hand drawn because It's an area that I know I need to practice more. I use vector as a crutch with illustrations and wanted to get out of my comfort zone.

Surf Van

I went out to take some photos in Venice on Sunday and this van drove past me. There was something super fun about it so I tried to make something using it. Also, pen tooling out the van out was a major pain.

Sports Design

A few months back I added some sports promo design work to my Pinterest. I decided it was about time tried my hand at it.

Nuehuevo York

Last year I posted about how I had an idea for a restaurant name and made a logo for it. Well, over the past few days I decided to blow it out. That includes an identity suite, headlines/brand voice, in-restaurant design, social posts (with animation), a website and other collateral. See it here.

Jessica Garcia Shafer for School Board

The other week a friend of mine asked if I could help her with an impending run for school board. She wanted to play off her Mexican heritage, specifically Dia De Los Muertos. Obviously skulls were out of the question for a school board (or any political) run, so we decided to take cues from these little banners that get made. She also wanted to play off a pear flower, since it's for Pearland school board.

Here were some of the designs I came up with for her after studying real Dia De Los Muertos banners.

Riot Grrrl Scout Cookies

I played around with this idea for about a year. After months of batting around the idea and how best to execute it, I finally finished it up this past week. You can see the whole project by clicking here.

Nuehuevo York

Yesterday I had a dumb idea for a breakfast restaurant that would be based in New York City, so today I took a few minutes to mock up a logo for it. Decided on the color because of it's similarity to an egg yolk, obviously. And Picked Gotham for the font mainly for the obviousness of the New York connection.
