This year I had the opportunity to design one of the University of Miami's main publications called Points of Pride. This small brochure is printed every year to showcase the university's accomplishments throughout the previous school year. This is my second time designing this brochure and it was well received once again. This makes me really happy! Points of Pride is distributed to all new incoming students as well as major donors, alumni, and supporters of the U.

I created the hive mark to match the highlights of her website and for it to represent the way her firm works, as a whole unit.
I created this logo for a client who has always wanted to open her own gift shop. She is a sweet woman and wonderful creator of beautiful trinkets and has finally taken the leap to get herself and her talent out there.

As soon as she requested it, my mind started working and I came up with a mix of sans serif and handwritten typefaces that sweetly embrace her personality and her spirit.
