the time-traveling loveseat is a project I started when I realized my loveseat travels time. not into the past, only into the near future where early afternoons become late nights in the blink of an eye. this blog was started to use that time travel in a more productive way, with an emphasis on learning and practicing new, everyday design.

what I do as "work"

A lot of people ask what I do for Que Sera, a small interior design firm out of Excelsior. The answer? A host of different things. While most of it is website content management for Que's sister store Oh Baby!, I often get the opportunity to do design work for promotional pieces for both stores. Here are a few of my favorite banners I've done for Oh Baby's homepage.

These are by far my favorite things to do for work, since I have the freedom to be as creative as I please. The following is our flier for Que Sera's grand opening in Excelsior (they've been in the new place for just a few months now). Hope you enjoy!

branding & identity revisit

Apologies for the lack of posts recently. I'm making more of a transition into a tumblr account where I showcase more of my work, less about how I got there. I've also been pretty busy with work, but in my free time I've managed to pump out some new designs. This post will show a few revisits I did to previous work I've done. I think it's good to go back and see how you can improve or make changes.

Here's the business card my friend Bri & I decided on for her massage studio. Still working on a back to it, and hopefully we can get a website going for her!

I also reworked a previous logo/identity design for Coin Laundry in Minneapolis. I used a different texture background, and added Minneapolis to the mix.

The third that I'm posting isn't a revisit, but some logo design I worked on with my graphic designer mother for a client of hers. I love any excuse to get creative.

I'm hoping to have more excuses to do projects like these in the future. It's these things that remind me of my passion for design. Stay tuned for more posts soon, as I try to keep up with all the things on my enormous list of to-dos.
