VOTE FOR MY POSTER DESIGN

The website Minted is having a poster contest. They are looking for personalizable nursery, children’s or family tree wall art. The winning posters will be sold on their website, and be available in 3 different color palettes.

With the help of my little Caroline (and our sleepless nights together), I created this sugary sweet poster. My wife suggested personalizing the "What Girls are Made of" Nursery Rhyme by replacing "little girls" with a child's name.

VALENTINE'S DAY FLASHBACK

Logoworks by HP was a custom design agency for small businesses. To help showcase the company's creativity, I frequently created custom illustrations and icons for our email campaigns. Here is an illustration I did for their "After Valentine's Logo Sale" back in 2010.


To carry the chocolate theme onto their website, I created a nutritional facts chart to display all of their logo packages.  


Later that year, this email campaign received an American Inhouse Design Award from Graphic Design USA.

IT'S A GIRL!

Last week my wife and I welcomed a new baby girl into our little family. Our sweet Caroline was born January 26, and weighed in at 6 lbs 9 oz.


To celebrate her arrival, I wanted to share another card kit that I created for Cherries Jubilee Creations. The Cutie Pie card kit was filled with everything you would need to create 6 darling baby cards. I filled the kit with Nursery Rhyme inspired papers, borders, embellishments and tags. Here are the papers and borders:


To help us showcase what you could make with this card kit, we enlisted the help of Melissa Phillips from LilyBean's Paperie. Here are the four darling cards she created:
