Since moving to Ireland, I've found that I'm learning a lot of new Irishisms. As a countdown to Paddys Day, I thought I'd letter each new phrase, giving myself only an hour to do so, from ideation to finished product. Here are a few of my favourites. You can find them all on my instagram.
My husband and I honeymooned for two weeks traveling from Paris to Barcelona in a car. This multi-media, three-part book is an account of our adventure. Each part of the book tells the story of our travel from the streets of Paris, to the shores of Belle-Isle-en-Mer, to the artful parts of Barcelona. This book is an example of the designer I am and want to become–there's typography, hand lettering, illustration, colour, pattern and all types of paper.
Brandon Deepwell Identity
Brandon Deepwell is a talented videographer/photographer who happened to live in the apartment above us with his wife in Vancouver. We all quickly became close friends and as an exchange for doing my video for my travel book I designed his identity and website.
Brandon is a minimalist by heart. His videography and photography have a very documentary style to them. Brandon and his wife Karina spend most of their weekends outdoors treking through the Vancouver wilderness. When it came to designing his logo we decided to go with something minimalistic, analogue and something that evoked his love for the outdoors.
I worked with the store support team making everything and anything stores needed – from campaign posters to large decals to murals. Each day presented a new project with a quick turnaround and another creative problem to solve. In my six months there I handled 100 projects nearly all from concept to finished product.
Along Came The Fold
For three years I owned and managed a small business based in Vancouver making paper products for the home: from stationery to lamp design. It started with a need for a lamp for our dining room, two pieces of paper and my obsession for origami. All products are designed by my eye, made by hand, with paper specifically made to last.
Pegeen City Council Campaign
Branding for Pegeen Mulhern for Bainbridge Island City Council. The campaign intended to appeal on a local scale to a wide variety of voters. We incorporated illustrated iconic landmarks as examples of maintaining local history while promising new progressive legislation and social reform. Our message was directed to the locals, the people who would be directly affected by new policies.
