I enjoyed completing this sleek and classy professional design concept “makeover” for Fashion Stylist and Wardrobe Consultant Monique Bickham of Evolve 4 Style. Monique uses her fashion background to educate individuals on how to purchase clothing that properly fits their body, express their personality, enhance their personal and professional image, and create a versatile wardrobe that makes getting dressed a pleasurable experience. Her belief is “The Power to Change Images is the Power To Change Lives”. And isn’t she fierce modeling those five fabulous looks? Well done!

This full Artist Concept Design & Execution was for the talented brother-sister, singer-songerwriter duo, Sam & Suzy, from Phoenix, AZ. These two wanted their branding to reflect their Fijian roots, while also keeping it easy, natural, and modern. Can I also just say that I love these two!
Keep a look out for their EP coming this fall. And in the meantime, check out their newly launched website, featuring one of their amazing songs, “Revival”.

I just wrapped up a complete concept design and execution for Everchanging Woman (ECW), dedicated to empowering women in various stages of life through sharing experiences, best practices and advice captured in research, dialogue and documentation.
I love hearing about diverse woman and how they successfully navigate their way thru their lives. That is why I was honored to also be one of the Woman of Change featured in the ECW Spring 2012 Newsletter. Check out the full newsletter, filled with inspiring Women of Change Spotlights and Fashion & Beauty Tips for the Busy Woman here.

This wedding logo concept reminds me of the unity candle portion of the wedding ceremony. Couples are finding creative ways to represent the special event of two individuals becoming a whole that cannot be separated. Why not subtly carry this concept into your wedding theme by using the blending of your wedding colors? You can even use the blended color in your reception decor and your thank you cards.
THE TAKE AWAY: Some couples have trouble incorporating their spiritual beliefs into their wedding because they don’t want to make guest with different beliefs feel uncomfortable. Or, perhaps you feel pressure from your parents to incorporate their strong beliefs into your more “out of the box” wedding. Don’t be discouraged. If your desire is to carry out those themes without overpowering your guests, there are ways. With small modifications, you can have exactly what you are looking for.

Last week I wrapped up a logo, blog, and web design project (that had a quick deadline) for an amazing woman with her own medical billing company. Her main objective was to have something very clean, simple, and easy to use. While clean and easy is also my style, I sometimes have to resist the urge to “over accessorize” not only with my design clients, but in life.
THE TAKE AWAY: Showing off the frills and thrills is nice, but not if it goes against the client’s desires or takes away from your overall goal. To make your statement or point of view more clear (when cooking, styling, decorating, designing, storytelling, etc.), consider editing out one or two elements from the concept that do not add real value. Easier said than done. If you see me out wearing all of my favorite accessories at once, gracefully remind me to edit.
