recent assignment for client, cardstore. the development of a series of seasonal cards suitable to the unique needs of personalized, business 2 business sending. these are a few of my favorites that were chosen to be included in their 2011 business holiday offering. inspiration was taken from the fresh, clean design that i would send to represent my own business and collaboration with a very aesthetically driven art director. yeah, for great clients!

great transom window above our front door was crying out for some love. a popular feature added to houses built at the turn of the century, it worked as a convection to cool the home in summer. found some great reference of flats in london which use the transom as an address space + worked up a few quick designs. thanks to the expertise of Allison + her etsy site singlestory ended up with the best address number in the OC! in 1906, the city of cleveland, in an effort to conform to one general system replaced many of the street names with a mainly numerical system. before that west 52 was know as “dare street.” i love that!
