graphics // baby shower invite

hello

My best friend is having a baby. This will be her second child and it’s a boy.  I was honored that she asked me to design her baby invites.  For the look and feel, she wanted a California Vibe, palm trees, and a clean modern palette of greens and gold with pops of color.  I told about the brand A Beautiful Mess.  She took a looksie and said that’s exactly the look and feel that she wants.  For privacy, I did change the names and details.  The first one was the invite design she selected and the other ones were the options I wanted to share with you. Please comment and tell me which one you like best. Here is a glimpse…

A new soccer year, a new team. Last year, I was fortunate enough to partner with the USL (United Soccer League) Team – Austin Aztex. This year, it was all about the Tulsa Roughnecks. I love working on event posters.  I partnered with the team to design all the home game posters for the 2016 USL Soccer season.  We kicked it off with a vintage photo of the head coach, who actually was a Roughnek in the 80’s. Here is a glimpse of my favorite posters for the season…

hello London

London

Hello my lovelies. I’ve missed you! I’m back from Europe. My trip was so magical. This trip was in celebration of my mom’s retirement. Congratulations to her and I’m so lucky to have been able to celebrate with her. I loved everything that I saw and the people I met.  I’ll be sharing my trip with you city by city. London was the first city. I so loved London and I think I would say it’s one of my favorite cities I visited so far. I could so see myself living there.  Here is a glimpse of my London…

I loved the signage. London had beautiful graphics all throughout the city.  Our first night, we wandered through Carnaby Street and had a lovely dinner at Sketch.
