Working on logo variations for Bagel Dots
Blackjove is relentlessly focused on styling men and restaurant staff that to make clients look and feel great. Their site got a major facelift that focuses on their past projects and more clearly explains their new restaurant outfitting service.
After three and a half years at the good ol' TGT/Tar-jay Boutique/Bullseye, I'm saying good bye to GTKYs, TB about Project Q, and OEs.
I cannot begin to describe the kick ass projects I've been able to be a part of (Launch of Threshold, New Direction for Room Essentials Product, FEED, Neiman Marcus, Justice League, Poppy Talk, Wit & Delight, Rebrand of Spritz) and the insanely talented people I've had the pleasure of working with.
So what's next?
I'll be joining the team at Style-Architects as their Director of Branding and Design. After working freelance with the team for over five years I cannot be more excited to see their faces during business hours!
Sneak Peek direction for Toby Clark
Rumor has it that there are a few spots the Instagram Class taught by Style-Architects + MaeMae.
Head on over to LAB MPLS to check out their Spring 2015 Schedule. New classes this season include a watercolor class and a photography class that I'm sure you don't want to miss.
ALSO! Style-Architects and Mae Mae Paperie have expanded on the Instagram class so now it's even MORE GOODNESS (you didn't think that was even possible right?) We've extended the hours to put more focus on YOUR business and are diving even more into photo editing.
APRIL 25 & MAY 30
Loved working with the Simply Elegant Group on their rebranding and website launch last Spring. I switched them over from a flash based website that was too difficult to change to a responsive site that's easy to update. Ashley, the owner and brains behind the business, just radiates when she talks about her planners and the weddings they've helped create. Go ahead and check out the site yourself: here
I'm a huge believer in having an online presence that can grow as your business needs grow and is easy to maintain. Setting up a website shouldn't give you a headache and is actually a very fun process when you work on Squarespace's platform!
The latest project I've completed was for Jennifer Norman (who has a bunch of amazing things in the works and is teaching a Gift Wrapping class through LabMPLS). Like many entrepreneurs, Jen knew she needed a website but had no idea where to begin. I was able to quickly set her up with a responsive-site that will look great on any device, use her existing images to give her website personality, and link to her social sites.
Style-Architects has a new online home! The team has been working on repositioning our services to focus on Design, Social Management and SEO work for businesses. Our new website now explains our areas of expertise and will soon show all the projects that we've been a part of!

Tasha, from Red Bird Hill Photography, has a unique way of capturing the smallest details about life. And that's exactly what drew me to her. Her images tell beautiful stories of love, loss, happiness and new beginnings.
Early on, we settled on a red cardinal to represent her branding because it reminded Tasha of her Grandma. We went after a few variations of cardinals and font until we landed on the designs below.
Each day seems to go by faster than the last so when I had planned to publish the new branding for Red Bird Hills Photography I was shocked that I had been working on this new brand for almost a year. Below are a few of the options we explored for the main mark. Huge thanks to my gals Amelia Allen for creating a bunch of beautiful watercolor cardinals to work with and Ashley Hohnstein for throwing her branding talent into the mix.
