Q3 Roundup: My Favorite Projects
The first day of November is the perfect time for a Q3 project roundup, right? September and October with both insane when I moved a few states east - it's crazy how much time moving eats up. Now that I'm finally settled (and actually have a desk space again!) it seemed like late was better than never to profile a few of the great projects I worked on in July, August and September.
The biggest branding project I worked on this summer was with The Perfect Shirt, a custom shirt company. With a strong vision for their growing company, it was easy to translate their vision into a beautiful brand. You can read more about the branding process for The Perfect Shirt on a previous blog.
As their business has continued to grow, it's been awesome to see the way they've used the logos we created in action!
Website UI Design
I work with Ponya Bands on a regular basis to manage their online presence. Last quarter, Ponya wanted to update their website homepage to have a more modern look and feel. I worked on the UI for this through new homepage graphics based on existing branding. and a new homepage heirarchy.
I worked with cleaning supply distributor Key-4 Cleaning Supplies to develop a postcard and line card to distribute to new and interested customers. The postcard served as a mailer to Columbus, Ohio-area businesses that might not be aware of the service that Key-4 offers, and the line card will serve as an on-hand material for any new customers looking for the company's full range of options.
I've also had the opportunity to work with the Girl Scouts of North East Ohio on several print design projects. One of my favorites were a collection of folders for recruitment events, including a STEM-centric folder and a creative folder that hopped on the coloring book trend, leaving a few designs blank for girls to color themselves!
Snapchat filters are all the rage these days, y'all. Since Snapchat announced the ability to create on-demand geofilters for an event, it's been the greatest geographical marketing tool since Facebook checkins. Geofilters are especially popular for weddings and over special events; the designs below were developed for a high school dance and a fall wedding. It's probably obvious that I developed these around the same time; they use one of my favorite fonts (Hello Sunshine) and similarly sparkly repeating graphics.
Invitation + Card Designs
One of my big goals for this quarter was to add more to my Etsy shop, where I list wedding and special event invitations for sale, as well as cards and other paper options. I had cards professionally printed for the first time ever (!) this quarter, and it was so awesome to finally list them for sale. Here's a few of the designs I worked on this quarter:
Looking ahead to Q4
There's lots of good things on the way for Q4! I'm currently finishing up two large-scale social media + design projects, which will make room for some more small-scale projects like you see here. I'm looking forward to creating a few holiday card designs, as well as beefing up my invitation designs since wedding season will be here before we know it! I'm also looking to sell some illustrations on different products, such as stickers and printed posters.
And if you're looking to collaborate -- give me a shout anytime! I have availability in the coming months and would love to chat.
