Fancy That's Lisa Komer asked for some pep in her shop's (visual) step. Lisa had developed a logo for the opening of the shop, but knew that as her business grew, so would her brand. We streamlined her logo, gave her a set of complimentary icons that tell a celebratory story, defined a bold color pallete, and had a ball putting all the elements to use on custom wrapping paper, packaging, signage, her website and even her pink (!) Fiat.

After ten years of creating under her moniker Polly Danger, Polly was ready for a more cohesive and modern identity. What you must know about Polly is that she is a force. This woman gets.it.done--a true whirlwind of creativity. Together, we sifted through her varied visuals of yore, identified common themes, colors and core principles and pushed them into the future. The bright and shiny outcome marries the lively edge of Polly herself with the softness of the cuteness she creates.
The opportunity to work with the Utah Chapter of the Sierra Club is what prompted me to start my own business back in 2005. Since then, our partnership has resulted in numerous newsletters, annual appeals, and event invitations--all in celebration and defense of Utah's beautiful wilderness.

Annual reports are always the icing on the design cake. A complex project, typically involving much cat- and data-wrangling, they stretch project management skills and design chops. As a bonus, sometimes you even get to use a die-cut or emboss!
When time permits, I love to work alongside my students--testing my own assignments and modeling solidarity. We work through roadblocks together and the students have the opportunity to critique their instructor, thereby showing me what they've learned. It's great fun for everyone. The HUNY Honey Company was a fictitious company that served as the subject of our final in my branding course at Pacific University; this was my final submission. (I should note for good measure that the website mock-up photo is not mine and I've since lost the original source. Apologies to the original, talented photographer.)
