Happy Friday! Lately I’ve added a new type of Graphic Design to my portfolio. I partnered with a new company headquartered in Boston and they specialize in menu design for restaurant re-branding.  I worked with them to design a series of various menu types.  One of them was for a Mexican restaurant – Sol Mexican.  The inspiration came from Cantina type graphics and  the idea was to keep the color palette minimal but to really play with Typography and allow for the design of the text to pop and me the star of the show. I loved working on this project. The menu format was a traditional 8 1/2 x 11 flip menu book. I didn’t design the logo so I’m not showing the cover. Here is a glimpse of the Sol Mexican menu…

I have been busy with wedding graphics lately. I have another Save the Date for you, but this one combines my two favorites – Fashion + Graphics. {Kaven} found me through my freelance work and had a vision to create a Save the Date invitation with a high fashion edge.  Him and his fiance took several photography looks with a high fashion vibe and the idea was to use these images as a series for their wedding suite. Loved working on this project. They really made my job easy with their amazing photo. Here is a glimpse of the first round of options + the monogram options…

Save the Date Infographic

Hello.  I’ve been working on some amazing projects and have been incredibly busy the last few months. I wanted to take time to share one of the projects I have been working on. I partnered with a couple {Lisa + Jonathan}. They came to me with an idea to create a unique Save the Date. The idea was to create an infographic and make it unique and very special to them.  Everything element of the design was collaborated together – fonts, stats, diagrams – all of it. I loved working on this project. It’s very unique and I wanted to share with you. Here is a glimpse…

Sounders Fashion

Most of my blog readers know that I’m a huge Seattle Sounders fan. Today was the last home game for the regular Sounders season. Happy to say we ended with a win and we earned a spot in the playoffs. I’m so thrilled. My friend {Molly} and I have been season ticket holders for many years and have really gotten to know the players and have admired their amazing athleticism, but we also noticed their fashion. Love. Here is a glimpse of Sounders fashion {Stefan Frei, Christian Roldan, Roman Torres, Nelson Valdez, Nicolas Lodeiro, Aaron Kovar, and Jordan Morris}…

Yves Saint Laurent {August 1, 1936 – June 1, 2008}

Tonight was all about YSL fashion.  The Seattle Art Museum presents Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style, showcasing highlights from the legendary designer’s 44-year career. Drawn from the collection of the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, the exhibition features new acquisitions by the Foundation that have never been shown publicly before. My friend {Maggie} and I had a fashion date and really enjoyed the work of YSL – master couturier and fashion pioneer.  The exhibit features over 100 couture pieces. It’s quite spectacular. Here is a glimpse…
