New Branding and Website Project, A Military Coin Design and Inspiration

Hi,

It’s actually turning out to be a pretty busy week. It surprised me as I wasn’t expecting it to be—but—here we are. As you know, I recently wrapped up a portfolio site for a fellow designer. As I hoped, we are staying in touch and she gave me the nicest shout-out on the podcast that she co-hosts, The Deeply Graphic Design Cast. I was blushing for an hour and was over the moon that I had such a happy client and now a new friend.

It’s back to it now though and I have started a couple of exciting projects. One is another custom website for a woman who is launching a new business as a Holistic Style Coach, She Inspiration. She is an amazing, warm and inspiring lady that I met in an Entrepreneur group. We hit it off right away and have been masterminding and supporting each other as we venture into breaking away from corporate life to start our own businesses. I’ve started working on a Moodboard of color palettes, fonts and some branding graphics for her. Below is where we are with it. For the website, I’ll be starting with the Practical Theme from Themeforest.

As you can see, I’m enjoying myself so far!

I also have started a coin design for a battalion on the military base that I work on. Definitely new territory for me but I’m having a blast. Their goals were to communicate who they are, what they do and where they are stationed. Below are a couple of samples from the drafts that I submitted. **Disclaimer: the tire graphic is a comp that I did my best with in Photoshop. If tit is approved I’ll purchase and finalize.

Military Coin Design DraftsI also have recently stumbled upon a captivating photo that my mucho-amazing photographer friend took in her travels to Hong Kong. It’s a street scene that she is calling ‘Train Tracks.’ Take a look and see which part of it draws you in. For me, it’s the man crossing the street with the black umbrella. See him?

Well, I hope that all of you have a wonderful weekend. The holidays have kicked off with high energy, as always. I love it—it’s contagious!

Until next time,
