There’s a new cowboy in town, and he’s coming out with guns a-blazin’.
This little microdistillery is going to make big waves in the Midwest, brought to life by two people with a great vision and passion for their craft. I’m excited to have helped them develop a logo that speaks to the beauty and history of the river, and their vision for a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted product.
Congrats, MRD, and wishing you great big things to come!
His time here, too short.
In his weeks on this earth, Colgin left a huge impression on the hearts of many, even though his own heart needed healing. A congenital condition made him a beautiful, smiling angel to the Lohman family a few short weeks after he was born in 2001.
Colgin’s family carries his spirit with them in everything they do. And each year, around his birthday, the family has organized a memorial golf tournament to celebrate his life and raise funding for a room in his honor at Mercy Regional Health Center. Over the past eight years, the event has raised nearly $50,000.
The 2011 event is a milestone one for the Lohman family and the tournament. June 19, 2011 marks Colgin’s tenth birthday :: and to mark the occasion, the family has planned an extra-special weekend to celebrate, remember, and honor Colgin. As such, a special person like this needs a special identification, and I was honored to be asked to create a logo that helped to memorialize Colgin and everything he means to the Lohman family. I’m proud to share Colgin’s logo and to pay it forward in a small way to the Lohmans ::
Here’s also more information about the June 2011 event, to be held at Prairiewood Retreat and Wamego Country Club ::
This coming Saturday, June 5, will mark the ninth annual event. If you’re in the area and would like to attend, you may register your team and find out more information here.
Watch for another PIF this week to come, too!
So. For as long as I’ve owned my iPhone, I’ve been what some might call a purist — in that my phone was covered in a clear protective wrap (which rocks, BTW). It’s nice, durable and it keeps my phone looking great—but from afar, it looks naked. Bare. Blah. Um, hello…you know I am anything but blah.
So it was time to shake things up a bit. A few months ago I posted about this. I thought, ok, this is what I’m looking for. It’s fun, it’s cheeky, it does the job.
So, finally, in a few short days, my iPhone will be sportin’ a sassy new look. And this ends the story of the nekkid-looking iPhone.

Oh, my…all this sunshine and warmer weather has me thinking spring! I love this time of year and the renewal that comes with it :: it’s the earth’s way of saying that life goes on, no matter how difficult the winter may have been.
A few things that I’ve come across lately that I love ::
Doily Rug by Anthropologie :: Handbag by jennjohn :: Earrings by Ursulas Beaded Jewelry :: Felted Wool Bowl by Knitting Treasures :: Letterpress Bicycle card by Snow Owl :: Sunburst Wire Wall Art by West Elm :: Smart Candles from MOMA
The lovely publication from this has arrived!
And guess what :: a sweet (and very unexpected!) surprise ::
Ohmigosh, a back cover placement? I don’t know what I did to deserve it…but it is wonderful and gratifying to see one of my favorite projects in print, not to mention on. the. cover.
Here’s the spread ::
The Olympics have been huge in our house (especially with said three year old who can’t get enough sports) lately – we have found ourselves glued to skiing, snowboarding, skating, hockey and everything in between.
Part of the enjoyment of the Olympics is the beautiful signature brand that develops in each host city/country. Here’s a great piece about the process and research that went into creating the sea-to-sky palette and graphic elements of the Vancouver 2010 brand.
When I first considered starting the studio and developing design and photography businesses simultaneously, one of the hallmarks that I wanted them to be founded on is a truly boutique experience—in every sense of the word. As such, I often write notes to clients and vendors alike to share news, and often, my appreciation for continuing their partnership with the studio.
Being the paper junkie that I am, I thought it would be a great tool to have some new stationery printed. (So what if I’m always looking for an excuse?! ) Enter, the fabulous-ness of Sycamore Street Press, a letterpress paper goods shop. I’ve long adored Eva’s work and craft as seen on Etsy, Paper Crave, and several other paper/ephemera sites (of which there are several, ahem). I also admire their dedication to be eco-friendly in an industry long seen as traditionally less-than-responsible.
I am so over the moon with how they turned out. Simple, yet so authentic to the brand I’ve created.
I can’t thank Eva at Sycamore Street Press enough for her awesome work. She was fantastic to collaborate with on this! I would highly recommend her—and I hope we get the opportunity to create more beautiful things together in the future.
