Thanksgiving Update

Thank you all for a wonderful 20 months of design, growth, and fun!

This is my first newsletter but I figured Thanksgiving would be the perfect time to send it. I am so grateful for you, one of my many wonderful customers, coworkers, friends, and family who have helped me grow my business since its founding last February.

These past few years have afforded me many exciting opportunities to try new things, meet new clients, and make new friends. I developed new skills in animation and film, worked with my first international client, and was able to hire my friends to show off their skills in a number of collaborative design projects. Check out some of my favorite jobs of the past few years below and more good stuff in my portfolio.

It was incredibly exciting to work with my heroes, Brian and Leila, to develop branding for this incredible team of students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the Lawrence University Conservatory in Appleton, WI. The Music Education Team creates unbelievable immersive musical opportunities for the public to participate in at Mile of Music, Oktoberfest, and other community events.

 
 

I had a blast building this animation for Aeon Power to demonstrate how their incredible energy storage and heat transfer technology works. I used watercolor fills and animation software to bring these simple hand drawn shapes to life. Check out the video here!

 
 

I had a wonderful time developing branding for Lake Country, a new food truck based in Ithaca, NY. I was also excited to get this logo printed as a huge 3x4 foot sticker to put on the side of their food truck (a trailer really...). Eric's Facebook page is here!

I created this series of four posters as a Christmas present to my family a few years ago but after showing it around it became clear that it might appeal to more people. I've since sold copies to the parents of a student at Cornell, a Cornell alumnus in Colorado, and plenty of local customers at Ithacamade. I am also more than happy to make posters to "advertise" other cities and places.


Hit me up!

I'm very excited for the next few months, which will include designing my first can, many exciting projects for each of my bands, and website and branding projects for friends new and old. 

Please reach out if you need anything tuned up on a job I've done for you, need some new component of your business' marketing strategy, or just want to say hi!

Thank you for your business, friendship, and support!
