I was very inspired by the watery textures and soft colors in my darling daughter's paintings, and thought they would lend themselves to a coastal themed series of illustrations. I snipped and nipped and played with negative space, and love that they are perfectly imperfect.
I teamed up with college buddy Geoff Deen to put a face on his brainchild, Hardball Cider. Together, we developed his logo, bottle and can labels, and 4-pack carton designs. Geoff's products are now available at the stadiums for the Philadelphia Phillies, Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, Reading Fightin' Phils and Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders, as well as many other locations. It was important to Geoff that the logo give off a classic American baseball vibe, and I thoroughly enjoyed bringing his apple/baseball idea to life. We also developed branding and labels for containers of his non-alcoholic, sweet apple cider, dubbed The Minors.

BGA Holiday e-cards
Each year, I design a holiday e-card for Boddewyn Gaynor Architects. This year, I flexed my illustrator muscle and had a whole lot of fun with this snowy skyline.
A bridal tea invitation
I was tasked with creating an invitation for a bridal tea. I found a beautiful set of floral letters by aleph corporation, which paired perfectly with the vintage look the bridal party was after. I also designed tea bag wrap labels, which the party hosts were able to print out and assemble around store-bought tea bags. A very sweet touch!
A longtime client, Boddewyn Gaynor Architects keep me busy with their business development needs. When the business name changed from Alan Gaynor Architects to Boddewyn Gaynor in 2014, I developed their new logo, keeping the company's heritage in mind. Other projects include an e-newsletter template, magazine adverts, and a promotional magazine celebrating their 40 years in business.

St. Luke's Blue Ribbon 5k
I had the pleasure of designing the race shirts for the 2015 St. Luke's 5k, incorporating their blue ribbon as the main component of the design. I just finished up work on the 2016 edition, which features my own hand-lettering. Stay tuned!
Rainbow flower illustrations
A sweet little series celebrating spring and some of my favorite types of flowers: daisy, dianthus, pansy, peony and tulip.
