Minted Eye of the Beholder Art Challenge

I recently joined the Minted design community and submitted a few designs to their Eye of the Beholder Art Challenge! For those of you who are not familiar, Minted crowd-sources design and art from a global community of independent designers, then sells their best designs as products such as stationery, wall art, and décor for the home and holidays. If you’d like to see Minted sell my designs as art prints, just head over to vote and give them a 5 for me! If they get enough votes, Minted will add them to their shop, and with multiple color variations as well! Just click on the photos below to bring you right to the listing on Minted. You’ll have to quickly sign up for a Minted.com account before you can vote but it’s super easy. Please pass this along and share away on social media if you’d like to support my designs! Thank you so much – as always, I appreciate your support!

Design Portfolio: Amelie G Magazine

Amelie G Magazine got its start in 2009 as an online fashion magazine and printed its first issue in the fall of 2010. If you’ve been around for a while, you may remember me attending the launch party. I posted this project to my portfolio, but I realized I never wrote about it here on the blog. Amelie G is a quarterly style magazine based in New Orleans featuring emerging artists and designers, and distributed throughout the United States.  It covers international fashion, art and design from the Gulf Coast perspective and is the only full-gloss style magazine in New Orleans. I worked side by side with the Amelie G team from 2010 through 2012 to design and produce their first five issues.

Branding and Blog Updates

I am so so so happy to share my new branding and blog design with you guys today! It’s been a slow process but is finally live and I’m loving it! I have been incorporating my new colors and fonts into my posts for a few weeks now, but finally got the final push out! I have also updated my Twitter and Facebook pages to keep my brand consistent. I’m sure there are still a few more things that I missed but it will all get done with time! Another thing crossed off of my 30 before 30 list! If you are in a reader click out and let me know what you think!

I ordered some new stickers and business cards will come next!

Design Featured in PaperSpecs Gallery!

What great news for a Monday! A job that I produced in December is featured in the PaperSpecs Gallery! Head on over and check it out, leave a comment or rate the design!

Rose Crescent is a New Orleans based software design company that provides world-class business-focused, goal-oriented systems with exceptional quality, stability and usability. The name of the company was inspired by Rose Crescent, a street in Cambridge, England and the city of New Orleans, which is also known as The Crescent City. The goal was to create an identity that is clean and simple as well as references the origin of the name and conveys the utility and reliability of the brand. The crescent petals scattered in an irregular way on the business card give a sense of the logo being a solution to a scattered problem.
