Design by Kamma Claire: Business Card for the Baker

My friend Katy is not only an amazing high school teacher but also a fabulous baker that brings everyone to their knees. She recently made and designed a wedding cake (not an easy feat!) for a mutual friend and quickly realized that it might be a smart idea to have some business cards...just in case this passion of her's turns into a small business opportunity.

I wanted these business cards to have a striking appearance and stand out amongst other "baking industry" cards that are all too often pastel, overly girly and just plain boring. So, I created a graphic background pattern made out of whisks and then paired it with strong, confident colors and type. The back of the card features a pie dough measurement table that I designed, to allude to the range of confections in her repertoire.

Now taking design requests for any butcher or candlestick markers out there...har har.

Fashion Photography: Rodarte for Opening Ceremony

I spotted these awesome photographs taken by Autumn de Wilde for the always rad Rodarte’s new collection for Opening Ceremony. If only I could afford all of these looks.

Design: Fashion's Night Out at the Supply Room

One of my favorite favorite clients (and friends) Kenny Osehan at the Presidio Motel asked me to design a last minute Fashion's Night Out flyer for an event she's putting on tomorrow, Sept. 8th from 5-8pm at her shop, the Supply Room. I love collaborating with people who share my aesthetic and always love the end result just as much as me. So rare, so nice. Just wish I was in Santa Barbara to partake!

Design: Emperors Club Album Artwork

The Iowa City Rockers better known as the Emperors Club asked me to design their upcoming album artwork for The Castle, which comes out on Mission Freak Records soon. I'm quite pleased with the end result that incorporates a photograph I took of the Navajo Bridge in Arizona during my week long road trip across the west for work.
