Design Grind and Fall Thoughts

Working hard on some exciting new freelance projects and enjoying this lovely September weather! Very excited about these new clients, nothing like a few logo designs and illustrations to get your mind rolling! Hopefully this breeze will be good sketch inspiration! Sometimes there is nothing more freeing than sitting outside watching people walk by and leaves fall to the ground.

On days like today I think its important to remember how to stay present. It is too often that I find myself always thinking of the future, whether it be what I’m going to do later that day or in the next five years. Don’t get me wrong, planning is important if we ever want to accomplish anything. However, it is equally important not to let yourself let years pass you by waiting for the moment when you are “exactly where you want to be.” The awful truth is that we rarely are ever exactly where we want to be. There is always a hunger for more in one area or another. While this hunger is often the fuel that ignites growth within us, it is also the obsession that keeps us from noticing the now. There are likely a lot of good things going on around you that go unnoticed because you are too preoccupied with where you are heading to next or what you will do this weekend. So go sit outside, talk to a new person, take in that fall breeze, listen to the birds chirping..whatever it is be present!

We worked with her to create a look that would make her wedding stand out and reflect the bright and wonderful person she is while still matching her rustic floral wedding decor!

Associated Pump & Supply sells and rents pumps and other dewatering equipment. It is a flourishing, family owned business that has been in Houma, Louisiana for many years. Associated Pump was in need of an updated website that not only showcased their services, but also showed visitors all the equipment they had to offer. We were able to come up with a solution that was more corporate and modern, and easy for visitors to navigate. Check them out at

Lafourche ARC continues to do so much for those in our community with developmental disabilities. Everyday they work to better the lives of so many people, but their web presence was not a reflection of the work that they did and continue to do. Together with the W.L. Gaiennie Company we worked to create a new brand and website that showed all the positive work done by the ARC. We used a mix of impactful imagery with fun bright colors and a more serious, corporate design elements to set the tone for the important work that they do. The new site will be up soon at
