This guy. One of his first loves is surfing. He used to surf once or twice a week. Now he surfs once or twice a year, that's the kind of dad he is. He's been putting us first since day one. Here's to all the great dads out there who selflessly sacrifice their needs for those of their family. Just know it doesn't go unnoticed. Happy Fathers Day!
Wrapping a few last minute gifts, doing a quick tidy up of the office, and it's off to hang by the pool and bbq all day. If that's not a Sunday funday, I don't know what is! Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful and hit weekend!
#lategram from earlier this week - these peonies lasted over a week and just grew prettier with each day. Ever since I worked with @christaroselipinski and she educated me on the importance of buying locally grown flowers, I usually try to do just that. Peonies are usually my one exception to the rule. Rumor has it, there is someone in Orange who not only successfully grows them, but does it well....I must find them and hunt them down 😉
Next Wednesday is our first complimentary Calligraphy practice night for all who have taken one of my workshops! If you have taken Beginner 1 and are on the fence about taking the second, come on down! Admission is free, just make sure to reserve your seat through @m.lovewell 's event page. Also, registration is open for our next Beginner 1 workshop on July 9th and the full Beginner series.
Guess its about time we did #fridayintroductions again! The last round was a little more on the personal side so this time is all about random tidbits and about me and the work I do: -I am a Southern California based graphic designer who crafts unique small business brand identities through hand lettering, illustrations (and sometimes non hand lettered) - I originally went to school for Interior Design where I finally realized my true passion was graphic design when my instructors told me I was spending far too much time in photoshop and illustrator -when I'm not designing I'm teaching hand lettering and Calligraphy workshops For a few random and odd facts -I have a weird obsession with paper, so much so that wrinkled paper gives me anxiety (no joke) -the only topping I prefer on my ice cream is sea salt -I'm a crazy cat lady -I'm a small town mountain girl -I have two crazy littles who always keep me on my toes, and I love to death - I'm terrible at spelling, so don't ask me to proof anything for you, I have others do that for me before submitting client work etc 🙈 That's it for now. Don't forget to Introduce yourself if you're new around here (or if you're not ;) )
(internal) Beauty, heart, grace and charm.
Simply stated, yet so perfect for this brand. This is one of the final logo variations for our talented client @ashleygaughaninteriors. She is definitely one to follow since I'm pretty sure she's the next big thing in the interior design world. 😎
A good reminder for any creative.
Around here, Monday's are designated for running errands, getting (semi) organized and preparing for the week ahead. I'm trying to also finally get my office whipped back in shape since it's been in utter shambles lately. On another note, I'm mildly obsessed with these quartz magnets discovered while going through some old boxes. (I think that's what they are? Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong).
It's the perfect upbeat inspiration needed for this #moody #moodboardmonday. Ms. black skinny jeans + heels are on repeat these days. She's the perfect model of our clients' client, and we love her. And that coral marble? Yassss. Can't wait to see the rest of this brand unfold and launch later this summer. . . . . #luminouslines #beautybranding #orangecounty #graphicdesign #branddesign #logodesign #webdesign #website #california
Just a little snippet of a concept for small project I'm sending off tomorrow....this summer is already booked full of julia-like-jobs and I'm loving it. 😎😎
This little guy didn't make the cut, but I'm still loving this gold foil mockup.
Still loving the newly designed kits for the Beginner Series taking place in collaboration with @m.lovewell. It makes prepping for each workshop a little more fun. I always look forward to workshop weekends, they are always such a nice change of pace. Maybe this time I will get a better story to share on insta stories, last time, each video looked like it was taken by a saucy, heavy breathing, pegged-leg sailor on a boat on very rough seas. No seriously. I have a knack for making awkward insta stories videos. It's my thing. Interested in getting your hand on one of these kits? And getting a free bonus of a side of my cheesy sense of humor?

I found a new kind of dance in a magazine, try it out, it's like nothing you have ever seen. ;) (song?) @interviewmag is seriously becoming one of my favorite publications to read right now. It's busting full of amazing articles written about interesting people by interesting people. It's been hard these days to find the time to sit down to read all the books piling up on my nightstand, magazines make easier quick reads so I am making more of an effort to take a couple minutes here and there to channel my inner Martin Lawrence and take time to woosa (can you guess the movie(s) )? and read a little every day.
