Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t updated this blog since last year. Things have been very busy at work, including completing one of my largest projects to date, so I have not been able to update this blog as much as I’ve wanted to. But, I’ve still been doing a couple little freelance projects.
A friend of a friend from college recently started her own small business, and decided it was time to invest in a logo. Caroline of Happify Bath Boutique was a pleasure to work with—it’s always easier to work with people you already know—and I’m so happy I was able to design something she loves. I really enjoyed this project because I was able to work on my hand lettering skills.
I started by doing some rough initial concept sketches, and from there we explored three options.
From there, I developed a few color options for each one:
In the end, we decided to combine one of the lettering concepts with one of the color concepts, for the below result:
I’m really happy with the final result, and more importantly, Caroline is too! I’m excited to see how she uses the logo as her business grows.
A couple months ago I had the great opportunity to work with Marty, who does volunteer photography for a number of cat rescue groups. Thankfully, he had a really great idea of what he wanted, but was also open to other ideas.
I don’t do a ton of illustration (at least not as much as I’d like), so this was an interesting challenge for me.
We ended up going in a slightly different direction than Marty’s original idea, but I’m happy to report that he loved the above version and it became the final logo!
It makes me so happy to see it in practice, with some adorable cats:
“Regina turned my rough ideas and sketches into the perfect logo for watermarking my photography! She was a pleasure to work with; I could not have asked for a better result.”
Happy clients are my favorite. I love this trend of cat and rescue related projects I’ve been doing and I hope it continues!
Long time no blog! About a month ago I finished this print for a friend’s baby’s nursery, and she was kind enough to send me photos recently (since I forgot to take any before I gave it to her).
My friend wanted a specific quote and had a color palette in mind, so I decided to do hand lettering over watercolor. I went with a darker blue on top and a lighter blue on the bottom, and lettered it with Micron pens. Thankfully she loves it and it’s really cool to know my art is in her little one’s room!
