When you are entrenched in the craft beer industry, it’s hard to find the time to develop your own merch. Elk Horn Brewery, located in Eugene, OR, is a family-owned gastropub and a regular client. Many of the projects for EHB highlight typography as well as basic character design.
Designing for EHB is always a blast!

Making Stuff & Doing Things Cover

The cover for Making Stuff & Doing Things is one of my favorite projects. I was tapped by Microcosm Publishing to redesign the cover for the fourth edition of this anthology.

The illustrations were created as an homage to the late Keith Haring, whose simple gestures & high-energy artwork will always inspire me. The updated version will be available in December, and you’ll be able to order it here.

Evil Genius IPA

Printing doesn’t just involve an Epson and some copy paper – sometimes you have to step away from the computer and get back to basics. This project utilizes a linocut print repurposed for beer packaging.

Cash Bound

In order to get ahold of my finances, I created a pocket-sized ledger that allows me to track income, expenditures, and credit card purchases, as well as my mood.

Cables & Volts

Remember when you were driving down the road the other day, and you spot that utility van for the local electrician? That magnetic sign, with the same red type set in Arial or Helvetica, stating that their service is “#1!” You think to yourself, ‘I could do better.’

cv-overlay-logo When the opportunity came around, I leaped at the chance to develop a brand for Cables & Volts that shook off the preconceived notion of what it meant to be an electrical contractor. The logo denotes a level of professionalism you’d expect from a larger company, with a dash of rock ‘n’ roll. Who says these guys can’t be hip?
