Personal Symbolic Art Commission

Personal Symbolic Art Commission

I recently completed this personal commission which was a gift for a spouse. I got to treat it similar to a branding project where we dug into imagery and symbolism that had personal meaning. Out of that process I developed this piece which we printed up poster size and had framed. I had the pleasure of handing it off to the happy couple today, so now I can share it here!

I was recently commissioned to make this illustrated head shot for a client to use on social profiles and such. A fun little quick project. Who’s next?

Custom Sign Design in Asheville

Custom Sign Design in Asheville

This was the first sign I designed for @giganticavl when we started teaming up last year. Always fun to play with double sided asymmetry.

It’s taken a little longer than the typical project to fulfill due to permitting hurdles and fabricator foibles. But we got it done and we’re all happy with how it turned out. Shout out to @chukkb for helping save the day with some last minute plasma cutting.

What I love about sign design is the blend of disciplines. Form and function. Architecture, construction, information design, graphic design, way finding, experiential design, typography… They all come together on a project like this. Lots to explore and play with. Never a dull day.
