I am a freelance illustrator living in Atlanta Georgia.
My designs are primarily used for the gift and tabletop industry.
Typically, I work in watercolor and collage and enjoy incorporating fabric,
stitched paper and found objects in my art.
How did you finally decide on the look of your brand?
What did the evolution look like?
That was a difficult thing to do. I started by looking lots of blogs and websites to see what other people had done. After determining what I liked about their brand, I took the time to understand what it said about them and how it related to their work. Next I selected some of my favorite images based on what I wanted to say about the work that I did. That was tricky because I like doing a lot of different things and I needed them to all make sense together. The next step was to show it to a couple of different friends (both artists and non-artists) and get feedback.
