LUNCHBOX FORTUNES

description // concept

I designed this sweet set of notes for my small business, Grown Design Co.
Printed on each thick, toothy watercolor card with deckled edges is a sentiment and botanical illustration. The set of cards is wrapped up nicely in a transparent vellum envelope with corresponding botanical artwork. I made every bit of this set by hand, including the deckled edges and the engineering of the vellum envelopes. The notes were intended to be slipped into the lunchbox of a child or partner, or even left somewhere to brighten a strangers day.

HIDDEN HOLLOW STATIONERY SET

description // concept

This set was designed as my first project for Anthropologie. I was given only a moodboard,
and after studying the board and getting inspired, I began collecting trim details and color swatches, and sketching concepts. The final set includes a weekly desktop planner, ceramic pencil cup and mixed media journal. Each piece within the set was inspired by the heat of summer, with wavy lines evocative of beach umbrellas and illustrations of people swimming. The set was meant to make the Anthropologie customer feel as though she found her own secret and magical hidden hollow–a place where she could relax.

BOHO BITS STATIONERY SET

description // concept

This collection of stationery was designed for Belk, in conjunction with a set of cohesive games. I paired modern bohemian graphics and typefaces on all pieces of the collection, which included notebooks, planners, notepads, sticky notes, pen sets, statement paperclips and magnets. The intent was to design a collection across categories that would pair together effortlessly for the perfect gift. In addition, many of these pieces, along with the corresponding games, are well suited for traveling after a much anticipated lift of travel restrictions for many customers.

NOVEL FRIENDS BRASS BOOKMARKS

description // concept

I designed these cute character bookmarks for Anthropologie's Holiday 2021 season
with the intention of offering an economical and cheerful gift for every girl's favorite bookworm. The brass material features cutouts around the character that allows them to become a focal point of a stopping point in a book, with embossed details and a debossed sentiment on the base to make the reader smile. These were a fun challenge to design packaging for, as it was important to me that customers would be able to see the entire character as well as the sentiment without having to remove any packaging components.

SWINTON TORTOISESHELL DESK TOOLS

description // concept

The Swinton desk accessory tools originally included a ruler, scissors, letter opener
and extra large binder clip. Each component of the set was designed to have an outer layer of translucent resin tortoiseshell with lilac flecks, and an interior layer or opposite side of solid orange to provide a glow of warmth from behind. Ruler markings and sentiments were debossed with a metallic gold inlay. The letter opener and scissors were removed from the collection due to the vendor's inability to produce a sturdy product that combined both the resin material and the intended brass hardware.

FLOWERY FUTURE SEEDED JOURNAL

description // concept

The Flowery Future Journal was a piece that I designed and hand-bound for my 
small business, Grown Design Co, and was particularly excited about. To create the covers, I handmade the heavyweight seeded paper using paper pulp and a mixture 
of wild-flower seeds before printing a botanical illustration and sentiment. Interior pages are lined and sourced from a small family business that produces the paper sust-ainably from their own crops. The intent behind this journal is to provide a sort
of resolution to past struggles, as the customer buries it upon filling its pages. The result is a patch of flowers where those struggles once were.

DAILY TRACKER GARDEN JOURNAL

I designed this daily tracking garden journal for Walmart as part of a "crafted 
greenhouse" aesthetic collection. With the intention of providing even the most challenged of gardeners a simple way to keep their green friends alive, I created a section to record information on every individual plant. Aspiring growers and seasoned horticulturalists alike can keep track of the needs and origins of every plant in the garden. The prompted infographics make it fun and easy to get interactive on the page.

The Frankie Journals were designed during my
time at Anthropologie. For a couple of weeks, I experimented with leather daily, and learned to manipulate the material to achieve many effects. For these journals specifically, I cut long strips of a soft leather in various colors and set out to experi-ment with weave patterns. These journals debuted in two colorways with tassel zipper pulls. I added a gold-foiled sentiment on the first page that reads:
 

 she always had
a mind full of brilliance
and stars in her eyes.

KINDRED CRAFT RECYCLED LEATHER JOURNALS

description // concept

In an effort to save the one and only planet we call home, I worked on a collection
of stationery made entirely from recycled materials. These journals were just one part of that collection, but they were ones that I felt especially passionate about. There's something about the exposed signatures on the coptic bound spine that make these journals  feel like relics of the past, yet also a keepsake for the future
at the same time. All interior pages were designed to be made from recycled paper, and covers from recycled leather with screen printed artwork.

The braided spine suede journals were a fun experiment in material manipulation and the
mixing of leathers, as well as an applied lesson
in color inconstancy and metamerism across contrasting textures. For a couple of weeks,
I experimented with leather daily, and learned
to manipulate the material to achieve many
effects. For these journals specifically, I wove
long strips of leather through a mocked spine,
and intended the remainder of those strips to
be the wrap closure of the journal. The covers feature both suede and a pebble leather.

Named after my sweet but sassy cat, Scout, these suede journals maintain a similar personality with bright yet soft colors and pops of neon in the unexpected details.
A makeshift surface coptic binding featured
in a contrasting cording color provides the sass to the sweet! Matching stitching along with a featured pop color were also used
on the wrap closure and interior details.
The corresponding roll-up tech pouch feat-ures two large pockets that would allow the pouch to be used multi-functionally for however best suits the customers needs.

Before the Coronavirus struck and forced all
non-essential workers to stay in their home offices,
on-the-go work stations and accessories were
trending. To accommodate to this ambitious personality type at that time, The Mattie tech
pouch was designed to fit a small laptop or tablet. The thick leather provided beautiful and durable protection, while the soft suede interior kept tech items scratch-free. Originally designed with an elastic pullover bellyband in a poppy contrast color, the final version of the Mattie Pouch was equipped with a leather wrap tie and all-over screen print artwork with neon green details.

The Adeline Travel pieces posed an inter-esting challenge. The design team was inspired by a vintage pattern, but it needed to be recreated in a way that would allow for wood block printing by artisans in India. I deconstructed the original pattern into parts by final color, allowing the crafters to create clean
prints of each color blocking. The de-bossed suede artwork on the passport cover and luggage tag was inspired by
the same vintage artwork, but inverted
for an unexpected twist. This pattern and several other block prints that I decon-structed and redesigned were applied 
across various other hardgood and soft-good formats during its debuted season
in Anthropologie stores.

Originally named the "Holly Travel" set, after my sister, this coordinating luggage tag and passport holder feature an interesting technique. Leather is painted with a surface coat of pigment, and then the artwork is digitally etched into the leather, revealing the true color and texture of the substrate below. As this piece was part of the holiday collection, I designed the pattern to be reminiscent of a snowflake but didn't want it 
to feel explicitly seasonal. Both pieces are out-lined with a row of rose gold beading. I designed these by experimenting with leather, beads, and
a needle and thread until I was satisfied with a technique that felt both durable enough to withstand travel but elegant enough to be beautiful and provide some shine against the otherwise matte leather material.

The Ondine Catchalls were completed as a collaboration between myself and another design-er during my time working at Anthropologie. These went through many iterations, employing several surface treatments including lasercut details and printed patterns until they ultimately featured fun, screen printed sentiments on a Saffiano PU leather. The exteriors are accented by stitching and zipper pulls in matching contrast colors for added fun. 
I took elements of in-house artwork and created
repeat patterns for the interior linings, and used

poppy, playful colors to match back to the outer
contrast color details. Small straps with punched holes allow the user to safely store necklaces and
earrings while on the go.
