Recently I was asked to design a print and digital catalog for With Love, a non-profit in Oregon that supports foster families. This amazing organization lends aid to foster children and their foster families by providing safe, clean and quality clothing and supplies to children ages 0 - 5.
I was absolutely thrilled to tackle this project with such a wonderful team of generous people and you can now access the digital catalog here.

Your designs don’t necessarily need to be complex, in fact many of the best selling graphic tees are very simple, however, they do need to connect with your audience and stand out.
Here are some great articles to help you on your way to starting your very own online t-shirt business:
Signs. You need them.
Just for fun, this week I'm doing some research on iconic, historical signs, as well as vectorizing and stylizing them. Feel free to download my vector files and use them for your own. I'll be uploading a new one every day this week.

I do wedding sets that include save-the-dates, invitations, bridal shower invites, custom postage stamps, thank you notes, e-vites, wedding websites, etc.
Congrats to my good friend Andrea. I did a trade/barter with her (she's an excellent hair dresser) for her Save-the-Date email invite and her printed ceremony invitations.
Loved this article - great reference for providers and clients!

Evan came to me with a pretty good idea of exactly what he wanted for a logo, which is rare in a client. Check out the logo and site at Templar PSD.
