Here are some of my favorite takeaways (in no particular order!, related to reshaping both your heart and your business.

Like many creative entrepreneurs, I have a loose “bucket list” of sorts with various types of businesses I’d love to brand, and when Angela of Halet James Design Co. (a design build company in Waco, TX) reached out to me about helping with her new venture, I was absolutely thrilled! Her work is nothing short of stunning, and it was a complete honor to design this brand!

When Amanda of Colorfully Yours Events, a Washington, DC based wedding and event planning studio, contacted me to rebrand her blooming business, I jumped at the chance! If you know anything about me, it’s probably that I love working with color, and a name like “Colorfully Yours” had me hooked from the start!

Keeping this brand all to myself for the last few weeks has been nearly IMPOSSIBLE because it’s without a doubt one of my FAVORITE designs to date!

For someone who’s already extremely prone to wanderlust (and may or may not book international trips on a whim), working on the North & Leisure brand was such a treat, and I’m SO excited to share this brand reveal with you! My client, Kate, is a certified expert on all things Scotland, Ireland, and Atlantic Canada, and her ability to curate an out-of-the-box itinerary is uncanny.
