Resonate Poster

30 Jul

This summer has proved to be incredibly busy. Most days I’m on project overload. The other week I was asked to do a poster for AYM’s Resonate Retreat this fall. I’ll admit, I’ve waited for this opportunity. I’ve done t-shirts for them but to finally do an event poster was awesome. It was at a retreat such as this I fell in love with design and decided to become a graphic artist–so it comes full circle.

The retreat is held at Springville Camp and Conference center in Argo, AL. If you’ve ever been you’ll know that the heart of this camp is the gorgeous lake. This particular retreat is targeted towards college and young adult students and is a time for relaxation and time with God. This project was a great reminder of why I chose design as a career path.

Enjoy!

The Journey

I’m super excited that my friend asked me to help brand her upcoming health conference. She wanted a chalkboard look and fresh market feel. Her conference will be in July and focus on essential oils, healthy eating, and overall happiness and wellness. You can check her blog out here.

Here’s a look at a logo and business card I just finished. The company is located in Brewton, AL and wanted an old Southern/vintage feel.

Southern Bridal Faire Sketches

I always love looking back at initial logo concept sketches. It’s fun to see where something started and how it ended up. Sometimes, it also helps me launch off with a new project. I stumbled across these today while looking for some artwork that I made, but didn’t use. Waste not my friends.

Connect Student Ministries

12 Sep

I’ve designed for several youth groups over the last couple of years. I enjoy it. Nothing makes me happier then making a logo or t-shirt for a youth group. I have to say though I’m totally biased for this group. Last June my boyfriend became the youth pastor for Connect Church in Daphne, AL. The church had been developing some new branding so I had the liberty to create a new look for the youth. We kept with in the aesthetic of the overall church and kept the Connect theme. I chose colors that were youth friendly yet complimented the overall church. Their primary brand color is orange. I found out that the color orange means change. The pastor chose orange after reading the “Orange Revolution“. Pretty cool way to use color and meaning.

I created hoodies, student info cards, sign-up sheets, calendars, along with postcards that could be mailed out for birthdays and encouragement.

The cards actually were modified from note cards in the shop. I just set it up where they could be printed front and back, three to a page on colored card stock. (If you’re looking for something similar for your youth group, I’ll be happy to set up same system for you with your youth logo on the back and info. Just drop me line.)

The Race: Snapshots

26 Jun

Remember the banners and postcard I designed a few weeks ago for Montgomery First? I had a friend snap some shots for me so I could see how they turned out. Sorry that they are sorta fuzzy, but you get the idea.

Amanda Chavers & Antigone’s Business Cards

14 Jun

I’ve always tried to stay away from becoming a one style designer. It’s easy to fall into a rut and have a go-to design theme that works for you. Luckily, the past few months have been stretching me design wise to work with some clients who have different styles then I’ve tried before. I was contacted back in March by a talented soul who takes your old outdated furniture and paints it up like new. Amanda wanted an antique, almost french provincial style look to her business cards. (She’s also the one I did the Poorhouse design for awhile back.)

She does this on the side but she also works for an antique store called Antigone’s. After her boss, Donna saw what we did for Amanda, she decided to redo her store and own personal cards. Keeping a similar theme of the french provincial we went with a pretty blue and lavender with some gold in there. Who doesn’t love gold.

I’m loving the way they turned out and happy that I stretched a new muscle. Be sure to check out their pages and store if you’re close to Brewton.

I’m blessed to say that I’ve been pretty booked with design jobs over the past 6 months. God is good! If you need any work done, please feel free to contact me.
