Nando's Chicago kit & launch party

When Nando’s PERi-PERi decided to expand into a new market within the U.S., they needed a way to make people take notice and share this exciting info with their friends! I developed the Nando's Chicago Influencer Kit theme (‘Building Up an Appetite’) and designed elements for its contents. The look incorporated the feel of both Chicago and Nando's. It targeted influential Chicagoans as well as super fans of the restaurant, and also served as the invite to the opening launch block party.

From social, to the local media, to the actual West Loop Restaurant opening in June 2015, it was a complete success, and served as a case study for Nando’s around the world.

Going to the chapel

I was honored to be asked to design one of my best friend's wedding invitations. I wanted to give it a handmade touch to go with the personal style of the couple, and I'm pleased with the outcome!

Reupholstery & refinishing fun

I’m a DIY kind of gal. Here are a few of the projects I’ve completed over the past 6 months— from creating window seats out of coffee tables to button-tufting my Ikea couch… let’s just say, I have some strong arms and nimble hands.

Member Station mug redesign

At NPR, we can never have too many tote bags or mugs (and you can check my kitchen cupboard for proof)! Recently, I redesigned the NPR Member Station mug. The mug pictured left pre-dated my time at NPR, and I decided that we were ready for something new. The Station Equalizer Mug, pictured right, is made and printed in the USA.

This mug is available in the NPR Shop.

Say cheese!

During the last couple months of 2013, I took a few photos for various This is NPR blog posts. You can read the posts and see my handiwork herehere, and here!

Reminiscing on yesteryear, I found this post on the This Is NPR blog about my team and me, and the awards we've won. Read it

Happy 4th!

A fun, sharable 4th of July graphic I designed for NPR.

Baton Rouge

I love taking pictures with my old Polaroid camera. It's instant gratification!

This place is full of floats & fried goods. Photo taken in my hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
