Launch Day: Consciously Connected Soul

Launch Day: Consciously Connected Soul

How do I even begin to describe my work with Bethany? She has a huge heart and passion to help women find their purpose and remove the fear that holds them back from their full potential. I feel honored I was able to share in her story and come up with a plan to help her launch her baby.

LAUNCH DAY: GENTWENTY

LAUNCH DAY: GENTWENTY

Today is the BIG REVEAL of GenTwenty's newest look! While it isn't their very first launch day (GenTwenty was founded in March of 2013!), it's still a launch day of their beautiful new brand—something to really celebrate! 

Nicole expressed wanting to work with me all the way back in May (can you really believe it's been that long, Nicole?). I worked closely with her as I discovered the hearts and minds of not just Nicole, but all of the many amazing contributors of the GenTwenty blog. These girls KNOW what it's like to live life in your twenties. In their own words: Our tried and true advice about growing up and navigating the real world will help you define your goals, figure out what your next move will be, and have fun along the way. And seriously, you can tell all of the hard work and pointed advice that goes into the content of their blog.

We wanted to give GenTwenty a clean, classy look that embodied sophistication—but also a bit of fun. The yellow and teal pairing were perfect in communicating this, along with the font paring of a more traditional "gen" with a fun, hand-lettered "twenty." 

I loved working with Nicole, and—as a twenty-something myself—can't wait to follow along on her incredible journey as her and the contributors of GenTwenty continue to help us as we make the most of this decade!

Client Spotlight: Reveal Ministry

Client Spotlight: Reveal Ministry

I first heard about Amber and her boutique, Beautiful and Beloved, at a conference. Her table full of beautiful items was too crowded with people for me to get close enough to her to chat—but I knew I loved what her boutique did and the amazing values it stood for—empowering former trafficking victims through the sale of their handmade items.

Then her boutique popped up right in my very own town of Palmer Lake! I followed her on Facebook and loved browsing the beautiful items and stories that would appear on my feed. One day, she announced a new ministry—reveal ministry. This ministry would be funded by Beautiful & Beloved's sales, and become a hub for those searching to live fully, love deeply, and find freedom through Christ—no matter what their pasts held.

I was sold, and I wanted to help tell the story of reveal ministry. So we sat down in her little boutique one morning, and over a delicious cup of coffee—talked about the the visual message of reveal ministry. Together we designed a logo and strong color palette, and then brought the brand into all areas of social media and web.

National Poetry Month — join in!

National Poetry Month — join in!

Being that I have so many writers dropping in on my site, and have some extremely talented clients whose writings I adore, I thought I’d invite some of you poetic writers to get in on the fun!

If you would like to have your poetry featured in the month of April right here on my blog, check out the details here and then send me a message letting me know! I know, I know… I probably should have started this process back in March. But who knew that April was National Poetry Month? (Probably most of you, I get it.) Depending on the type of response I receive, I’d love to feature two poets each week.

Beyond the month of April, I’ll also be looking at doing weekly writer interviews. So let me know if you’d be interested in that as well!

So I read this book... 

...and it's AWESOME. It has challenged me in some crazy ways, so I encourage all of you creatives to grab yourself a copy. I discovered this book before I discovered "Steal Like An Artist," but that's definitely going to be my next read.

So at the end of the book, the challenge is, obviously, to SHOW YOUR WORK. I guess you could say that the moral of the story, the end of the day take-away, is that people are interested in your process. They're also interested in you being a real and imperfect human being. Showing your work, your process, and your failures (alongside your successes) makes you tangible, discoverable, and followable. So, that's what I'm doing!
