Elizabeth & Jared were married in a quaint country church in June in a small town in Missouri. Their reception was perfect, and perfectly them, in a hall not far from the church. These sweet chalkboard signs fit their country wedding seamlessly with Elizabeth's beautiful florals and rustic charm that she decorated the hall with.

I worked with a local STL photographer (www.alibrasselphotography) who creates beautiful photos and is downright incredible to work with. We worked together on rebranding her thriving business and capture the beauty that she captures every day. I created a moodboard, lettering styles, and ultimately a logo that is fresh, organic, clean, and reflects her passion for photography.
This phonetic alphabet tee was created for Southwest Airlines "Southwest The Store", the corporate shop for employees and Customers of Southwest. This tee started out as a hand lettered design and was then digitized and sold in the brick and mortar store at Southwest's corporate headquarters in Dallas, Texas, as well as online.
For Southwest Airlines' Communication & Culture Department: hand lettered quotes chosen by Southwest's VP of Communication that conveyed the department's attitude towards communicating with employees and customers. I created a series of quotes in a coordinating color scheme and lettering style that were enlarged and hung in meeting rooms throughout the department.
This chalkboard was designed and lettered for a 30th birthday party that was 80s themed. The client, the wife of the birthday boy, had selected facts about the year 1980, and I lettered and illustrated them with chalk. Note the 80s hairdos and neon chalk!
I designed a theme for the 2015 Communications & Outreach Annual Meeting for the department at Southwest Airlines. The theme was set by the department as "perspectives", and this branding utilized the perspective of a donut versus a donut hole. With this sweet (pun intended) and fun theme, I was able to created a cohesive brand that carried through a poster, a notebook for participants, donut stickers, a tshirt, a PowerPoint template, and a "teaser" materials for employees leading up to the launch of the theme.

I love to letter on surfaces, especially those that pose a bit of a challenge! This lightbulb was long burned out, and was headed out the door. No object is safe from a touch of spot calligraphy!
I created a series of murals for the Billiken Teacher Corps, a service program in which teachers live in community, teach in low-income schools, and earn their masters in education. The program is through Saint Louis University, and the first cohort of teachers chose the "Suscipe" prayer to be painted onto the wall of their community's chapel, as well as the "do small things with great love" quote by Mother Teresa. The Billiken Teacher Corps logo was painted onto the wall above each teacher's bookshelf in their communal study area.
This series of hand painted quotes was created for Pallotine Renewal Center, a local retreat center. I created a series of quotes centered around peace for an upcoming peace retreat. The colors were chosen to reflect the gorgeous stained glass windows in the retreat center's chapel.
This just-for-fun project combines three of the things I love to do most: find one of a kind items at thrift stores (like this fantastic bowling bag), traveling, and lettering. After sourcing this leather bag, I cleaned it up, added some typography, and discovered that it made the perfect carry on and an even better conversation starter on planes.
The DASH launch was a project within internal communications when I interned on the Visual Communications team at Southwest Airlines. As an intern, I was given the incredible privilege of branding a launch campaign for the Technology department. This included a series of internal advertisements to run on TV screens throughout Headquarters in Dallas, Texas, as well as in Southwest stations at airports across the country. I created materials including tshirts, stand up banners, info cards, and stress balls. I was responsible for the copywriting and design of the launch, which centered around a theme of "do IT yourself", as this was an employee-centered alternative to calling the IT desk.
This hand lettered tshirt was created for Southwest the Store, the employee (and fan) corporate gift shop.
