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...

Studio Sample album for Capitale, NY

Providing popular venues with a sample from your studio is a very wise idea. One such popular venue is called Capitale in New York city. It’s a stunningly opulent place for high end events that is in an old bank. Danny Weiss asked me to design a studio sample for him so that his name is in front of prospective brides! He likes to leave the cover material up to me….. we never just do ‘black’ for a venue sample – we want to stand out. Venue samples are designed way differently than an album for a wedding couple. The venue wants their unique offerings to shine...

nature&nurture – print & web

Elizabeth Weiss was launching her new health coaching business, nature&nurture, llc and needed some important print & web pieces designed. She already had an awesome logo and wanted the rest of her materials to match the same look and feel, colors – passion for wellness.  She had a number of logo choices which we showed to friends, family – and me – and we all put in our 2 cents on which ones we liked best. I’m glad this one ‘won’ ! 🙂 I designed her business cards, stickers, Facebook headers and customized her WordPress blog site so she could...

Website Renovation Service

Every few years some photographers like to change up their website to keep it fresh. This is the second time that I have had the pleasure of helping Jenny Nourse Photography renovate their website. In this case she moved her site over to photobiz to try them out.  After helping her choose a ‘template’ offered by photobiz that would best match her identity/brand we got to work importing over copy, changing colors, putting in logo, setting up the backend outlines for pages, about us and contact page.  I formatted the text on the home page, made custom graphics for the...

Tri-fold brochure design for Rising Tide

Rising Tide Natural Market were preparing to celebrate their 40th anniversary and wanted a flyer to invite their customers their party. Logo, photos and copy were provided. My goal was to keep the feeling bright, organic, colorful and in keeping with their store visually and conceptually. Used white, black and their bold green for the color scheme.  I loved their paned windows with the huge leaf graphics so I incorporated the leaf shape into the design in the various drafts to break up the text. This was a short run print job, 4/4, CMYK and printed via Staples Online – delivered...
