I tell everyone I'm from Seattle, because it's easy. But I'm actually from an island west of Seattle, Bainbridge Island. Bainbridge Island is a small town community. The island itself is about 10 miles long and 5-6 miles wide. After moving into our new place in Meath, we're finially starting to decorate our walls. I drew this up so we can hang it on the wall next to all our other maps.
Paddys Day Lettering
Since moving to Ireland, I've found that I'm learning a lot of new Irishisms. As a countdown to Paddys Day, I thought I'd letter each new phrase, giving myself only an hour to do so, from ideation to finished product. Here are a few of my favourites. You can find them all on my instagram.
This multi-media, three-part, saddle stitch book is an account of our honeymoon. Each part of the book tells the story of our trip from the streets of Paris, to the shores of Belle-Isle-en-Mer, to the artful parts of Barcelona. This book is an example of me as a designer–there is typography, colour, hand lettering, illustration, pattern and all types of paper.
Brandon Deepwell Identity
Brandon Deepwell is a videographer and photographer in Vancouver. When Brandon contacted me about branding his business, I immediately thought this would be a great opportunity to explore his love for illustration.
Brandon is a minimalist by heart. Brandon and his wife Karina spend their weekends outdoors trekking through the Vancouver wilderness. When it came to designing his logo we decided to go with something minimalistic, analogue and something that evoked his love for the outdoors.

Along Came The Fold
For three years I owned and managed a small business based in Vancouver making paper products for the home: from stationery to lamp design. It started with a need for a lamp for our dining room, two pieces of paper and my obsession for origami. All products are designed by my eye, made by hand, with paper specifically made to last.
