Pretty little things...Before and After

I recently had a chance to work on a food label design in which the product was moving from the farmers market arena into the higher end food market arena.  The label had to go from the previous farmer friendly look I designed to a more sophisticated polished feel. I had the option to scrap previous illustration branding and really bring in a cleaner look. Check out below for some of the final products...

Pretty little things...Logo

I recently had the opportunity to work with a crazy talented chica on her branding. The Bridal Stylist is a service in which a bride can hire a stylist to ensure that they look absolutely fabulous from head to toe on their wedding day. The overall feel of the brand was to be chic and elegant, and to def stay away from the usual tacky wedding logos that you see out there. Below are some of the options that I presented in the early design stages...

And the winner is....

Latest.....Poster Design

The other night I had to come up with a quick poster for a dinner and music night happening at a restaurant that I do some design work for. As usual it needed to be done yesterday. The specs were basically Italian food, acoustic guitar music and send me something asap. Below is what I came up with. I case you were wondering I was listening to Bob Dylan at the time. lol who says music doesn't influence art!

In Love with...French Macaroons

So i have recently fallen in love with french macaroons. Everything from the flavors to the colours to their cute little bite size shape has me dreaming about them at night!

And with the help of Martha Stewart I was some what successful at this mission. Please note that this is two attempts, one you tube video and a quick call to mom later! lol

Ridiculously Great...Mustache Parties!

Last weekend my sister threw a random dinner party with a theme. That them being mustaches! Ya that's right.  I have to say that I can totally rock a mustache. They make everyone's face much more interesting. I think there should be a national mustache day. Oh and instead of mustache it should now be pronounced moustache...emphasis on the moo!
