New Branding: The Little Drawer

We've had so much fun designing the branding for The Little Drawer, a new lingerie boutique store, in downtown Fairhope. The store is located on 19 North Church Street (right next to the lovely Bliss Bridal) and will be opening early to mid-September. They'll be offering the finest in lingerie and sleepwear in Lower Alabama so get ready people.

Like them on FB or Instagram @thelittledrawerboutique for an official countdown. Stay tuned...much more coming soon!

Here's the BEFORE shot (to the left of Bliss Bridal). We're working on the signage and other details of course now. Can't wait to the share the AFTER exterior shot soon!

image There's something about helping artist's with their businesses and branding, that I just LOVE. From the moment Katherine Bramlett contacted me and I saw her beautiful artwork on Instagram, I knew we'd make a good pair. I can't wait to get started on her new branding. Think watercolor brush strokes + pretty blue/greens and pinks. Definitely something simple and refreshing, just like her work...

Branding: Mobile Mardi Gras style

I'm killing two birds with one stone today. Here's a “Throw Back Thursday Wednesday” post + branding project. Thankfully, tomorrow I'll be far away from my computer and in the Tennessee mountain land—eating lots of turkey and being thankful for a much needed break! I'm so excited to re-share this branding project I designed back in-the-day (see original blog post here). I completed this design project in March of 2011...so it's pretty old school now...but still one of my all-time favorite projects.royal_2 Throwback from Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Kings and Queens and Beads, Oh My!

Yes, Mardi Gras was last Tuesday, but I wanted to share with you some design work I did for the King of Mardi Gras Juvenile Carnival Court, Benjamin Partridge Cummings Jr. I met with his mother, Laura Cummings, before Christmas and we have been working diligently ever since. Laura was an absolute joy to work with and I loved getting to know her and her family.

As you should know, Mobile is the original Mardi Gras. Believe me, as a "transplant" to this town, you can't help but notice the pride Mobilians have in that title. For weeks, the streets of downtown Mobile are filled with the sights and sounds of live marching bands, brilliant-colored floats and of course the crowds of parade goers that is Mardi Gras in Mobile. I've grown to love it, but when you experience it for the first time it is a very foreign culture and like nothing you've ever seen. There's a lot that goes into Mardi Gras, especially for the King and Court's family...whew...it's a different world around here. It really reminded me of planning a wedding!

King Ben's royal monogram was custom designed and began with pen and paper. The rakes and cowbells symbolize the history of Mobile Mardi Gras. Ben's family played a major role in the Mardi Gras history, which made it even more special. Here is excerpt from the Press Register article: "Most Mardi Gras royals have relatives who were involved in Carnival festivities in the past. But Benjamin Partridge Cummings Jr., the 2011 juvenile king for the Mobile Carnival Association, has a unique claim to fame. His fourth great-grandfather (that’s the great-great-great-great grandfather) was an antebellum Mobile hardware store owner whose rakes, cowbells and other tools helped found Mobile’s very first mystic society."

Here's a great picture and article of the fabulous King Benjamin in the Press Register Screen shot 2013-11-26 at 4.43.54 PM I designed these neckties for the family to give out as gifts. I've never designed clothing before, let alone neckties, so this was a fun and challenging project.

And finally, one of my favorite creations was Ben's royal crest, which illustrates and symbolizes everything that he loves. crest

What an incredible memory for the entire family, and I'm truly honored to have been a part of it.
