Salt and Light

Recently, I had the chance to create the Summer Collection, “Salt + Light”, for the clothing brand Walk in Love. The goal of their company is awesome – create products with inspiring messages and imitate God by loving others. I had a blast creating unique typography and illustrations for these tees.

Columbia City Bouquet

Recently, I had the pleasure of creating the branding and collateral for the talented florists at Columbia City Bouquet. Their work is beautiful, modern, and fun. It was a pleasure creating visual pieces for this local company and crafting a style that fits with their company. Below are some images of their final logo as well as some unused concepts.

Estadio Font Family

I’m super excited to share my first font, Estadio, which is now available online. Estadio is a hand-drawn font family in two different san Serif weights, thin and heavy. I’ve also created a handful of rad little illustrations, shapes, and inked ornaments which are available with the complete family or can be purchased separately. All english letters, special characters, and basic latin are included with each font. More purchase options may be viewed here.

University of Washington

My wife and I tag teamed this fun little project and I’m super excited how it turned out. The Math Academy is a summer camp held at the University of Washington and brings in underrepresented high schoolers from all over the state. It’s always nice getting to work with your friends or family on a project and so this t-shirt design was a special treat. Take a peek at a few of the different versions below.

NY Times Magazine

A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of working with the NY Times Magazine for their Food and Drink Issue. Recently, I have been on a cooking spree so it was fun to get to do some hand-drawn typography for the issue. Take a peek at a few of the titles throughout the mag and fun images to get some cooking inspiration. Art direction and design from the very talented designer, Jason Sfetko.

Aquafina Flavorsplash

It’s been a total pleasure getting to do some hand-drawn typography work with the team at Pepsi for these new Aquafina Flavorsplash bottles and water goodies. I’ve been waiting to get to show this project for the past few months and it’s rad to see the final result. The playful branding and healthy approach behind the drinks are a refreshing take on the current soda pop market. Take a peek at a couple screenshots below…

Dan Koch

Dan Koch is a music producer, composer, and an all-around rad guy. His work is phenomenal. I have spent a good hour or two listening to his assortment of composed tracks in his music library – such beautiful stuff. Anyways, a few weeks ago I had the chance to meet him and work on his new branding. Take a peek at a few looks for his brandmark.

Radical Kids

I had the pleasure of working with one of my best friends on this fun little branding project. He came to me with the idea of starting a non-profit, afterschool program for kids. The focus would be on engaging activities, solid moral values, and giving the kids a foundation of love and nurturing that they might not receive elsewhere. The program hasn’t begun yet, but when it does, it’s gonna be radical.

Studio Jkoe

Jason Koenig is a very talented photographer, director, and all-around passionate dude who just recently put out one of the raddest music videos ever, Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us“. Recently, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jason and his wife Jenny on their new brand identity. Take a peek at their logo below, as well as a few hand-drawn, preliminary concepts.

Nordstrom Campaign

I’ve been super grateful for the opportunity to work on this campaign for the Nordstrom Shoe Clearance sale this past month. I created the illustration and typgraphy for the piece with Art Direction from Toby Milner and Moon Chang. Take a peek at a few screenshots below and some versions that didn’t make the cut but are pretty rad too. Edit: Recently, this campaign was featured in the book BASIC, which highlights nice typography from around the globe.
