Identity for an up-start, woman-owned bakery specializing in tasty things that you want to shove in your face. Wedding cakes to candied apples.
The custom ‘Sucré Dolce’ logotype is intended to be elegant, but not too pretentious. ‘Bakehouse’ is set with Barmeno Medium.
Just finished revising the ‘Midnight Kiss’ cover. Cleaned up the type a bit—and in some cases, made it readable (had one of those ‘what was I thinking’ moments). Placed the final photography and voila.
Sometimes I see photos in a magazine and I can’t help envisioning how they should be. No photoshop here. Paper, knife, and 5 spare minutes.
Finally getting around to posting this. A tasty little logo design for the one and only Keysar Photography. The goal was to develop a clean and classy identity that can easily serve as a watermark and make breakfast. No dice on the breakfast.
Compiled and updated my portfolio of graphic design work. Greg Keysar shot the photos of my work. I shot the bad photos of the finished book. Hand-made, stitched binding—cover wrapped in linen. Turned out pretty nice. I would probably use a lesser weight stock for the pages next go-around.

Working on a logo for Peach Fuzz [handmade cloth diapers]. Still in the development stages — comments/thoughts are quite welcome.

Two straight weeks of production work gave me an itch to do something a bit more fun and interesting. I grabbed an Anthropologie catalogue I saw lying around, a few black pens and markers, and began bastardizing what was originally beautiful photography and clean design. For me, humor is an equally effective outlet for pent up creativity — so, inevitably the resulting work wreaks of my twisted sense of humor.
I had such a blast that I quickly gathered all the other catalogues laying around to produce future volumes. I don’t know how to categorize this — maybe simply sketches and funny thoughts is a solid description. Possibly more polished versions could be considered art or design — for now, I’ll call it fun. Try it for yourself — laughter is guaranteed.
Here are a few selects from METZ’D up Volume No.1.
