New Year's Eve Spirit Ball

I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with Lauren Bjelde of Royal Jelly to create a poster and some other assets for their New Year’s Eve event this year, the Spirit Ball at JaM Cellars in Napa, Ca.

Lauren illustrated the main figure for the poster, which I colorized, embellished, and incorporated into a final design. I then adapted the design to be printed as a t-shirt for the band:

The final piece I created for the event were these “good fortunes” for guests to receive as a lucky token for the new year. Each card featured a different Rumi quote on the reverse side, beautifully printed in embossed gold ink by Moo!

Happy New Year!


 

Paper + Goods shop

This is long overdue, but I wanted to share the shop design I collaborated on with Paul Wagner, the Design Director at Princeton Architectural Press this fall.

PAPress opened a second office on Warren Street in Hudson, NY last year, and left space for a small brick and mortar shop called Paper + Goods. In November Paul and I designed and arranged the space, and created a holiday window display for the season. I was really proud of the result! 

Go visit Paper + Goods if you're in Hudson at 204 Warren Street!

When I was a student at USF, I worked for three years at the Graphics Center, an on-campus, student-run design firm where we created promotional materials (of all sorts, but mainly posters) for organizations on campus. I actually owe my design career to this place; I started there barely knowing how to use illustrator and photoshop, and left as a Design/Art double major, and manager of the center. Thanks GC! Here are a few of my favorite posters I made during those three years:
