I worked with Sara and Rocky Garza who helped host an awesome hipster baby shower for their good friends Chantal and Greg. I loved getting to research Chantal’s styles and figure out what kind of type she loved from looking through her Instagram account.
I wanted to create some hand lettered cards to gift to people and to help encourage the movement of “Send More Mail.” After creating some cards for friends, I decided I’d make a series of hand drawn cards. I loved the freedom of being able to draw and create the kind of cards I would love to receive.
Bri Denton is a dear friend and a gifted floral designer at Blue Lotus Gardens. She asked me to do this board for her daughter Veda’s nursery. Bri gravitates to minimal and geometric design so I was excited to challenge myself and create a board that would capture those two elements. The board concentrates on precise lines and approaching the alphabet with more a modern flair.
I was ecstatic when I received the opportunity to do a permanent chalk piece for one of my favorite restaurants in Dallas, Oddfellows. I worked with the owners to create a collage of farm-to-table symbols mixed with some hand lettered typography.
I was thrilled to work with talented event planner Stefanie Miles to do the chalk for Alex’s colorful and fun wedding! The biscuit bar and chalkboard program were by far the largest pieces I’ve done yet, but it was a fantastic challenge and the biscuit bar is probably one of my favorite pieces to date.
Meaghan Cody of Sweet Pea Designs asked me to come on board to collaborate with some of my favorite creatives in the industry for a midcentury inspired styled shoot. After doing extensive research on mid-century typography styles, I decided to take a font I owned and customized it with the repeating contour lines to give it a mid-century flair.
Love how this invitation suite turned out and how well it complimented the rest of the shoot! So thankful to Meaghan for asking me to be a part of this awesome shoot!
I wanted a simple card that would show off my awesome friend Allie Brill’s photography, but still share some tid bits from our fun filled year. I decided to go with a nice contrasting color scheme with red against a bright slate blue to highlight the year on the front of the card, and then to be the main background color on the back of the card. Brevity is not a gift of mine, so instead of trying to think of a clever way to design our year, I decided I’d be straight forward and write out all the highlights 2012 had to offer the Jordan fam! Likely not too many of our friends and family actually read the entire update in its entirety, but it made me feel better to include it all!
Tiff is a dear friend that I’ve known since middle school and she’s always possessed an incredible eye for design, fashion and art. She graduated from UT with a Textiles and Apparel degree (NOT easy to do) and Tiff’s impeccable taste has only grown more refined over the years!
Tiff was the kind of client who was very confident in what she wanted in the paper goods for her wedding. She asked that her entire wedding suite have romantic components mixed with a little vintage and a little modern flair. Also Tiff wanted to include their love story in the save the date as well! Such a fun and personal touch and I know that all her guests were so excited to receive this in the mail! I really love the way the entire suite turned out and I especially loved getting to celebrate a friend’s marriage with a little TEP touch!
Loved getting to make this save the date for my sweet college friend, Rachael. Making this design was a cinch because Rach and I appreciate the same aesthetic. I love how the elements of this design work together mixing the minimal, vintage, typewriter and calligraphy fonts. If you like this save the date, you should see their incredible barn wedding! Beyond gorgeous!
Description: Back in my blogging days, I was fortunate enough to befriend the talented photographer Jennifer Young of the blog I ART U. After following her blog and corresponding with her for a year (she lives in sunny California), I had the opportunity to finally meet her in person at a blogger event called Snap It Pretty in 2011 and then again when I visited my brother in LA in 2012.
Jen kindly asked me to design her 2012 holiday card and I jumped at the chance to do so! She and her hubs have a clean and modern aesthetic and I loved collaborating with her to create this card. Organized, minimalistic, typography driven – love!
Thanks Jen for the wonderful opportunity! You can find more of Jen’s amazing work and adventures here: photo | blog | instagram
A bright baby shower invite for a dear friend’s precious adopted daughter, Anna Claire. I wanted to create an invitation that was girly, fun and cheerful to match my beautiful friend Lauren’s personality and excitement over her first daughter-to-be! Such a joy to create!
My favorite piece of the Farmer wedding suite and “day of” paper good I created: a single folded program that slipped into a kraft pocket. Brooke was an incredible client to work for and we both shared how much we missed our e-mail exchanges after she was wed! Thanks for hiring me to do your invites and paper goods Brooke! It was a privilege!
I created some prints to sell at the Walk The Light Arts Festival in February of 2013. I wanted to create a print that was light hearted and playful with the saying “Holler Back” using mixed typefaces.
