For the 2016 Christmas Card, I decided to keep going with the dinosaur theme. I sketched out several ideas, and thought the Therizinosaurus was fitting. Theoretical paleoart often shows Therizinosaurus as a fluffy and warm-looking dino...what better dino to show "Warm Wishes"?
This set was also printed by Moo.com, who again did a spectacular job. For this year I went with a matte postcard with a writable backside to keep down costs.
Dans la Bouche is a small business in Springfield, MO that creates artisanal jellies, butters, catsups, sauces, vinegars, and wines. I created a cohesive packaging design for each group that works well across the brand.
Access Advertising is an advertising agency that specializes in the transportation industry. Access needed a new website that focused less on transportation and more on hiring in general with a modern, cool look. I started with the “Flux” WordPress theme and developed it more through WordPress and the back-end to create the look that Access was going for. I also created modern illustrations for each page to add to the updated look.
