Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! Here are my fellow cohorts who just completed our @mtnbizworks Foundations class. Plus a few not shown who had Easter weekend plans. We’re heading out into the world as early startups with a renewed focus on our plan, mission and values. Ready to propel our business to the next level! ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ™๐ŸŽ‰ #ashevillebusiness

Event Design

Event Design

It’s been a week since Climate Con wrapped up. Producing event related design is one of my areas of expertise that I truly enjoy working on.

Big shout out to the folks at Hnycmb Creative who built the brand and website for the Climate Con event. Credit due where credit is due and all. My role on this one was more signage layout and consultation for our mutual client the Collider. ๐ŸŽ‰
Back in the day I was the director of the art department for a large special events company that pulled off large scale events every day. I also used to have my own venue where mostly live music events took place. I’m not bragging just sharing my unique experience that I bring to the table. ๐ŸŽ‰
When you work with John Hornsby Creative, you can benefit from the advantage of that experience along with our other background in promotions, signage and event based marketing.

As can only come from years in the trenches, I understand the unique needs and challenges involved in the design of not only “outside of the box” event brand and graphics but also flow, timing, set design, marketing and communications and more. It can be stressful, but I bring a steady calm and sense of fun to help ease the process. Some other Asheville events I’ve collaborated on include Moog fest and the NCSHRM conference. I’m not a full time event planner but if YOU are, we should definitely be talking about how I can help make your next main event more successful, through the power of well thought out and executed branding and design.

Everywhere Are Signs

Everywhere Are Signs

Last night I had the pleasure of presenting at the Asheville Design Salon along with some other amazing local sign pros. Honored and humbled to be part of the talent pool in this amazing city. Much respect for the sign painters and makers pushing boundaries while honoring tradition, signcraft and local history.

They say the eyes are the gateway to the soul. How about the keyhole to the heart? There’s something about a heart for a head that I’ve been playing with lately. Still trying to work out where I’m going with the idea but I feel a series of pieces around this coming on… #art #artist #artistsoninstagram #arte ย #instaart #illustration #artoftheday #illustratorsoninstagram #illustrationartists #creativity #creative #topcreator #draw #drawing #drawings #sketch #sketchdaily #ashevillartists #sketchbook #hornsbycreative #heart #keyhole #eye #portrait
