Wedding suite

August 10, 2014

Never before have I been, and probably never again will I be, asked to design a wedding invitation featuring the Millennium Falcon. The trick with these sci-fi-themed wedding pieces was to keep them classy-looking with a touch of whimsy. It was all thoroughly enjoyable, especially since I got to draw a map, one of my favorite things.

Letterpress Christmas cards

December 25, 2012

I took a letterpress class, and for the final project I printed our family Christmas cards using my own calligraphic image on a variety of papers. The tree background was printed with a handmade photopolymer plate. To print the second color, I traced my own calligraphy in Illustrator to create a digital vector file and ordered the plate from Boxcar Press. It was helpful to learn the letterpress process firsthand, and I was very pleased with the cards, but I’m not sure how much chance I will have to personally print letterpress projects in the future.
