What’s your story?
Using compassion, hard work and determination I create Designs and Photographs to capture not only the story of a client but communicate it effortlessly to their audience.
This t shirt design was created for a local bar in Ranier,Mn. As a one color, over sized crest logo, it was an quick turn around for printing . I was taking into consideration three things when brainstorming ideas for this company. The first, the audience they wanted to target were 21-35. Second, the location of the bar which is located right across the street from a beach. Lastly, the customer wanted to start selling these at the beginning of June, thus I thought a summer style would be most appropriate. I was the lead designer on this with the help of Melody and Jim Woods at J2m, Apparel.co .
These images were taken for a senior photography project. Using long exposure photography and strobes, I was able to capture the essence of the individuals. The thesis was the interaction of depression and happiness. Strobes were used to show the hidden emotion of the project participants. Text on the images is a poetic explaintion for this project.
Solmate is a local glass etching studio that reuses glass jars and bottles while customizing etching designs for other local customers . I worked with the owner to take pictures for their etsy shop to help sell their products . This was a great learning experience as I learned how to light glass bottles just right so the etching would be shown without looking unrealistic. Using post editing software i was able to clean the glass up a bit to help show the etching off . Many of these jars have been sold since I have taken the photos.
Here are a few examples of clothing designs I BorderBoxes here in the falls. The juke box design was for a bowling team and they requested to have a shirt for the team that echoed the activities the team was interested ; Bowling, music and drinking.
The equipment design was for a logging company that uses that exact log cutter . I was given a sketch from the client and finished it with digitizing it adobe illustrator.
Finally, the Haunted house design was the final design for a young girls figure skating team . They discussed how they liked horror but didn’t want it to be too scary . Noted how the colors needed to pop on dark colored outfits.
