I stumbled upon Koralie last year while searching for women street artist and immediately fell in love with her style. Lately, I’ve had dreams about getting back to Visual Arts; combining my Graphic Design and Fine Arts background. I’ve been taking the past couple weeks to get re-inspired and just when I thought I totally forgot about my love for Koralie, I stumbled upon her and Supakitch this week. Their style, color choices and dreamy scenes are the equivalent of a perfectly baked cake to me…amazing and makes me feel very happy!

SNOW DAY!!!! I’ve decided to set up my work station in the living room today; facing an open window so that I can see the snow falling from the sky! Why? Because I love snow days! Throw a sweater on, cuddle up in a comfy blanket and drink some coffee, tea or hot chocolate and enjoy this snow day while we have it!

Working directly from inspiration is the best way to work. With Kashmere Kreations, the inspiration was a beautiful fashion sketch for Oscar de la Renta that was provided to me by Erica Nicole; Fashion Stylist and Founder of Kashmere Kreations. When receiving this piece of inspiration, I was immediately inspired by the gown and pops of color. The end product was clean and fun, while adding a little edge with the rich black text. I loved it and so did she!

I’ve been working with Aid Through Trade, a fair trade jewelry company based out of Annapolis, MD, for over a year and love the projects we’ve been working on. We have worked on branding, print design, product catalogs, web + social media ads, photo shoots and more!
Below are samples of some of the social media ads we’ve created. It’s great to see people embracing social media promo and branding it to their business.

Hey everyone! It’s been a while! So much has been going on with me and my business. All good! In the past couple months, I have had the privilege of working with some amazing bloggers, small businesses and creators on their design pieces. This week, I’m going to take the time to highlight some of my favorite jobs of the year!
First up: The Feisty House
Krystal Knight has not only become one of my favorite bloggers, but one of my favorite people. She has put forth so much dedication to her blog and it shows. When she wanted to spruce up her blog, she contacted me. I helped her with the overall look and feel of her blog; making sure everything was clear, concise and consistent. The end result was a blog that I feel represents her blogging style and spirit.

…can go a long way. Lately, I’ve been paying a little more attention to type and the fonts I use to design with. My favorite fonts to design with are web fonts. They’re clear and you have clean lines, which is right up my alley. Here are a few of my favorite examples of fancy text.

Kimbra has become one of my favorite singers in the last year! Her voice is amazing and you can feel her energy through every song. She throws herself into her music and her band is equally as talented as she is. You’ve probably heard her as a feature on the oh-so-popular Gotye song ‘Somebody That I Use to Know’, but her vocal and performance skill go far beyond that feature.

It’s a beautiful thing when talented artists get together and make…well…magic! I love seeing what happens when people from different genres and sounds create when they get together! Here are a couple of my new favorite sounds!

I have had the pleasure of not only working with Fortique, but receiving some great referrals from them and now doing a guest blog for them. I have been loving their blog and am so excited to be apart of the line-up of style and design.
