Common Sense Films Unaired Treasure: Lazy Links

My pals Justin and Mac of Common Sense hit the webosphere with their latest! So good!

Hello Tomorrow- Latest project

Check out the latest fruits of my freelancing labour! When Mac approached me to ask if I would be interested in helping him and Erin with an identity update for their company, Hello Tomorrow Wedding Films, I was instantly smitten! A big fan of their work, and some of my favorite people to hang out with, I jumped at the chance! Although the entire scope of the project is still in progress, here’s a peek at the latest…

Voila: The We Have So Much To Give Show!

I’ll let you in on a little secret. There was a slight delay in printing, and as the show was fast approaching, I decided to hit up Kinko’s for some quickie digital copies. Its like searching for your favorite pair of gym shorts right to the bottom of the lost and found bin. Even if they are still in there, it’s quite likely the sweat and whatever else grows/festers in those bins has discolored/scented them in a way you didn’t think possible. But do you still go for it? YEP! I did. To save on cash moneys, I trimmed the cards myself…enough said. Luckily, Jukebox Printing pulled through slightly ahead of schedule, and Chris and his clever friends came up with some real innovative ways to use the “special” ones.

The show was held in Chris’ backyard, with paintings hung on fences, sketchbooks on the patio table, couches on the grass, and collaborative pieces for every one to join in on. Once I knew the vibe Chris was going for with the show, I stuck with a palette you might have seen on your elementary school pencil case, and a Saul Bass influenced background which I think fits with the show vibe. Chris asked if he could make a huge sign version of the postcards, it turned out so amaWzing, plus it doubled as the guest book!

Art Show Postcard: Roughs

One of my pals Chris asked me if I would design a postcard size flyer for a group art show he was hosting with his other artist friends. I was real excited to work with Chris, he’s so easygoing and I love his paintings! See the next post for samples of his talents.

The idea behind the show was pretty simple. For several of the artists, it was their first show, so they were quite literally bringing everything they had, pulling out all the stops, if you will. I remember how I felt at my grad show, a little vulnerable, but excited, then nervous, etc. As far as the design of these cards, Chris asked that the type start by bleeding off the edge and would prefer a sans serif typeface. From there I did a bit of exploring with textures and backgrounds, trying to get in to the wonderful artsy-ness of it all. And by that I mean I found left over silver spray paint, some watercolor paints, and a bright yellow plastic bag in my closets and ran with it. See the final result and event pics on my next post!

Bowties and Birthdays

My friend Carly warns me on a regular basis not to fall in to the hipster cesspool scene just because I moved closer to the city after spending the majority of my life in the suburbs. I felt this was mandatory to mention as this post is dedicated to bowties and she would likely sell my soul to the river people if I didn’t. That being said, A) its almost my birthday, B) I stumbled across this really cute bowtie company, Forage (made by Something’s Hiding in Here) and their celebrating their first company birthday, watch the video, worth the smile it will leave on your face and the marketing seed it will inevitably plant.



Recently went to California with my boyfriend and his family, here’s some of the shots!
