High School Senior Album Design

Here are a few pages from Shana’s senior album that I designed for Mark Shangraw Portrait Art the other day. His studio prefers a design style that is layered with different textured backgrounds – no white backgrounds.  Shana is the sibling of a book that I designed years ago! Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! The launching of a young adult is such an impactful time for families with a lifetime of raising and school years they are about to leave the nest and possibly go away to college. The senior has their own unique sense of self with boundless visions of their new...

High School Senior Album Design

Here’s a fun and colorful album that I designed for Carey Anne Photography for her client Samantha. The murals are SUCH fun in this shoot!! They really emphasize the senior’s artistic personality in a huge way.  I’ve said this before……. but Carey Anne is awesome. She makes the most amazing videos of her clients during their sessions. If I was her client’s mom I would be a weepy mess and ready to purchase every product offered! 🙂 I just love designing albums for High School Seniors. I could go on and on about why……… and have.  I wrote...

Vector Logo illustration for E1

I was asked if I could help edit/create a logo for a group of Texas A&M University Galveston Maritime Academy engineering majors.  One of them is the son of a beloved photographer client of mine so of course I wanted to do anything I could to help them out! A friend of theirs drew the eagle and then they painted it – and hung it on their wall.  They wanted to add crossed wrenches and a marine propeller to it. All they had was a photo of the wall painting of an eagle with their name E1. They wanted to use it in print and knew that they needed a proper vector logo created. It...

Logo for Mark Shangraw Portrait Art

Logo for Mark Shangraw Portrait Art

Mark Shangraw was looking for a new logo as he was restructuring his photography business – something more boutique, more hand crafted. After listening to the goals for this new venture I knew that they needed something with his ‘hand’ in it. After some pencil sketches I knew we needed something authentic and uniquely representing his own namesake. I asked both he and his wife to send me his name both in manuscript and cursive to compare….. and sure enough his own signature shone as ‘the one.’ It wasn’t perfect….. it was a touch filled in and...
