Denver- obviously I have been underestimating this city for a long time. Recently I was able to really visit it for the first time and realized that there are SO many hidden gems. And they are all hiding in plain sight. If you like locally owned, non chain restaurants, coffee shops and book stores, you need to visit soon. Hopefully I will get around to posting a few pictures of spots that Marc and I really loved.

One of these gems is the highly talented, Anna Smith (AKA AnnaBode.) I was blessed to get to work with her while I was visiting Denver last month. Her style is everything I love in a home; Minimal, Eclectic, and intentional. And she has a particular eye for art and textiles. Here are some images from our shoot.

Kat Ambrose Photography logo

Kat and I graduated together from the Art Institute, and I have to say, she is one talented cookie. I was excited when she asked me to design her logo and immediately knew the direction to go in. She is modern, feminine and has Indian heritage. So I wanted to incorporate all these characteristics into her logo design. Here it is!


Blissful Hill

Blissful Hill is a wedding venue with two locations, Dripping Springs and Austin TX. If you are in to big white barns with lots of light and beautiful scenery, you will have to check them out. I think they even have ponies!

I was excited when they approached me to design their logo, which lead to business cards and their website, which is currently still underconstruction. I am happy that we made the connection and can not wait to see the beautiful weddings/ events that are held there.

Here is a preview of their logo suite and business cards.

Sandy Moss

Sandy Is a private jeweler in the Nashville area, basing out of Franklin. I was pretty excited when she contacted me about her business branding and couldn't wait to start sketching out some ideas. We kept things pretty simple with a monogram logo and using "mossy" green and gold for the color pallet. And, of course, it was only natural that, as a jeweler, she should have gold foil business cards. Take a look!

Lori Vrba's New Site

I keep meeting awesome people right and left. The funny thing is that through this digital age of social connections, most of the people I work with are thousands of miles away and I never actually get to see or shake their hand. But I love it! And I was so excited when Becki Griffin, who I had just finished business branding and website design for, introduced me to her very best friend who was ready to do some work on her own branding. 

Lori Vrba is a self taught film photographer who displays her work in shows all over the country. She is based out of North Carolina, and let me tell you, this lady is full on inspiration and spunk. If you don't already, you should follower her on instagram and check out what she is up to.. My personal favorite is her nest. Yes. She has built a nest thats probably big enough to throw a party in. Search the instgram hashtag to see what I am talking about #obsessedwiththenest.

 Instead of a traditional logo design, Lori decided that she wanted to simply have her signature vectorized! Before, she would write her name on the gallery walls with a black sharpie. Now, with her vector file, she can have a large wall decal made, which will keep her out of lots of trouble :) I am glad for that. 

Lori and I are so excited to finally announce the launch of her new website that we have been working on :) Here is a peak, but please hop over and check it out at WWW.LORIVRBA.COM


Precise Finishes Logo design

Precise Finishes in a local painting company here in Lafayette, Louisiana. They hadn't really thought too much into their business branding and identity since they already had so many clients simply by word of mouth. I think that is awesome that they could be so successful by reputation alone, however I thought it was even more awesome that they allowed me to work with them in designing a logo that they could be recognized by! We chatted about their ideas and vision, then I worked up a few visuals for them. Here are the final results:

Power Zone Logo Design

Austin First Church is sprucing their Kids Church events up with a new logo design! This one was so much fun to work on :) I designed several graphics that they could use interchangeably with their marketing materials. Sometimes it's nice to have a little stamp instead of the whole logo, you know?

I even got a little crazy with the display layout I created and photographed. Who doesn't like crayons and glitter?

Becki Griffin's Curious Details

For a while I have been pinning Becki Griffins work on Pinterest without really knowing. It wasn't until we started working with each other that I realized I was already a huge fan of hers! My "Dream House Ideas" features her work several times. (Don't try to look though, that board is private.)

She is a photographer, stylist and decorator.. and you have probably seen her work published in Country Living magazine several times! She is absolutely amazing at what she does.

A month or so ago, Becki decided she wanted to upgrade her blog. So we put our heads together and came up with a plan to incorporate her old blog to a new website/ portfolio. I was pretty pumped up about about the whole situation and after a few weeks, she had a new logo, website, facebook banner and emailing system. You know how it is, like when you go to the grocery store for milk and leave with a buggy full. Why not? She and I both believe that if you are going to do something, you might as well go all out! I'm just glad she chose me to tackle all of these things.

I have to say, it was so much fun working with Becki. She is kind, laid back and witty. And she reminded me that being professional doesn't mean that you have to be all business and uptight, because she definitely isn't. We laughed, freaked out, laughed about freaking out, we bounced ideas off each other, planned, and conquered.
