2018 brought with it a lot of new opportunity. My freelance work was varied and the clients amazing. If I boil the year down to two words I’d say it was full of growth and possibility.

Integrative Man

An Integrative Man responds to life not only as a duty to fulfill but also as an art to create. This mark needed to be modern and simple, while also being able to extend beyond itself to city locations, women, and have the potential to become a movement.

Why Ask Questions?

A book for leaders interested in asking better questions. A friend (J.R. Briggs) and I created a book together and ran a successful kickstarter to fund he. He focused on the words, while my role was with the flow, layout, and illustration.

Eyes in Bookroo

Bookroo is a monthly subscription box for your kids that helps them fall in love with reading. In 2018, they included Eyes in their board book box.

This was a massive and unexpected step for getting this book into the hands of more families.

10 years together

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary with a trip to Tulum, Mexico. The tacos were incredible, the scenery magnificent, and the company just as magical as it was in 2008!

A full kitchen renovation

Our 1950’s era kitchen contained beautiful hardwood cabinets, however the layout and other finishes we’re less than ideal. We designed a new space that better suited our family and style.

With a contractors help, the kitchen has transformed into an airy oasis.

 

Job updates

Two major career milestones happened in 2018:
First, I officially began leading the marketing designers at AWeber, which lead to…
Second, I started a new job at OFC.tv (a creative communications agency and video production studio) as their Creative Director.

I miss the team I spent 5 years growing with; but enjoy the new challenges at OFC.

Offline learning

I always like to stretch myself and learn new skills that are non-digital and non-design related. This year that looked like making my own sourdough starter and learning the art of bread making.

I’ve a long way to go, but forcing myself out of my comfort zone forced me to take the posture of a learner again.
