Album Cover Love--LiveWater releases their first single

It's a bucket list type of thing. I have a never ending list of to-do's, want-to's, and gotta-see's. Designing an album cover is one of those things that hits all three. 

I don't believe in coincidence. But I do believe in divine encounters. Every Olive+Fig project has been more than a transaction of time and money. So it's funny (and SO very awesome) how new friends or meeting new people always holds the opportunity to turn into a project for O+F.  

This time, two guys--let me note: extremely gifted--singing, songwriting, praising Jesus, and ropin' some steers too. (not listed in any certain order ;)) They reached out to me and asked that I design their album cover for their first single, Road To Vegas. 

Drum roll please......

Maret's Soap: A Ranchmade Company

 A complete rebrand for Maret's Soap turned a simple packaging label, into a design forward display of Maret's soap artistry. Inspired by the rustic tones and ranch equipment logos, this logo communicates the simplicity and ranchmade business that thrives on small community.

Northeastern Junior College: Amping Up Classroom Artwork

 

Classrooms need to be inviting. So I was glad to work with the NJC Business Department to design some new poster artwork for their classrooms. I worked to create vibrant pieces to take the place of the slightly dated posters currently on the walls. 

I was able to combine my love for hand drawn lettering with my appreciation for simplicity. All lettering was done by hand. This growth poster was first drawn in pencil, then design in Photoshop. All Watercolor lettering was done with a Watercolor brush pen (my new favorite design tool). 

The rough hand drawn letters kept it traditional as most classrooms still have white boards and Expo markers. Hand drawn lettering keeps things comfortable, inviting, and relatable. 

Open House: IT WAS A PARTY!

The Open House was such a blast!  We couldn't have asked for a better turnout. It was so great seeing everyone enjoy the evening with wine, snacks, and our photo booth. Who knew that a few props and a background would be such a hit!

This event allowed me to work along side one of my best friends, Owner of Premier Events: Dakota Schuppe. We--of course--had a blast putting this event together. From craft store runs to the day-of set up, this was such a great opportunity for us to use both of our businesses, together!

I was able to offer up my design services and creativity to help Dakota bring her ideas to life. We had three event table scapes, all which turned out great! My personal fav was our Kate Spade inspire wedding table.

FREE. WINE. FUN.

 

 

Of course there are more than three words to describe what this event will be, but we will start with FREE. WINE & FUN.

 

"Open House" means you are free to come meander around The Studio to see what Premier Events Planning & Design, The Studio, and Olive + Fig & Co. mean when they say "IT'S A PARTY."  I'm not going to give it away (hint: GIVE AWAY(s)), but it's going to be awesome. And there will be wine. And food. And FREE stuff. 

 

What more could you ask for?
