This was a project developed for a local Tulsan musician releasing her first album. The project consisted of an album design, poster designs and other marketing pieces, a photo shoot for her personal marketing, and a website (click here). Suzi is an extremely talented singer and song-writer, and is making headway into a career of music through this debut album.
We began the discussion of album art by looking at photography based design, that would hone in on the beauty of the photography and utilize simple text for highlighting the information and titles. When Suzi saw the first set of drafts, she realized that this may not be the direction she was wanting to go. She really liked the idea of water color, and so we began working on different styles of watercolor through both painting and photoshop design. After we worked on the drafts for the "watercolor look", Suzi fell in love.
Suzi's website involves a parallax feature that uses fixed images to give the website depth as the viewer scrolls through the content. This website still used the watercolor look that we created for her album, but uses more images throughout. She will begin blogging soon. You can check her site out at the link provided above.
The overall look of the photography was an outdoors feel, but still very modern. The edits were a soft but dark look, that continued the feel of the album art. Suzi's description of what she wanted with the photos at the beginning of the project for photography was, "delicate yet modern."
This was a branding set with a photography shoot for a client in Tulsa Oklahomha who was in the midst of starting her own company. Her company would provide handmade accessories and flower crowns for every occasion. The photography was very softly edited and utilized colors to better advertize the crowns.
The branding in this set was focused around the idea that her products are all handmade. So it made sense to have the logo be hand-done. Still, the logo felt incomplete and so we decided to add "Made" below the hand-painted font, to give the logo more order and clarity for the viewers.
This logo was developed for a prospective Clothing design company in Tulsa, OK.
This project was a part of my repsonsibilites while working at World Compassion. I was responsible for the design of the entire package. This letter brought light to an international program the ministry was introducing. It used images as storytellers to grab the readers attention, and gave the reader an opportunity to invest into the program in it's early stages.
This piece of the sent package gave the viewer an option to give, but also request more information if they were unsure at the time of request. The marketing behind this gets the potential-donors information, giving the organization the ability to connect with them at a later time.
The main piece of this packages was a 5-page letter, with an 8.5x11 cover, layed out on a tri-fold 25.5inx11in sheet of paper. The piece gave the feel of a newsletter type magazine, and really made the viewer feel like they were receiving something that was quality and worth reading.
This was a branding and web design project for an aspiring Tulsa-based fashion designer. She wanted to use this site and branding to represent her ideas as she developed creative clothing designs during her work and internships forthcoming.
We developed her website after a tabloid styled magazine. This website gives the minimal and modern feel of a fashion magazine, but the functioned as a blog. The images in each post served the larger end of each blog's communication than the text below.
This logo was developed from the script hand-writing of the client. This gives it a personal feel, but scanned with the floral background, makes it feel very modern.
This project was a website developed for the annual Waterwalkers Conference hosted in McAllan, Texas. This conference is a yearly opportunity, run by students, to give to students the opportunity to find God alongside their friends and other local believers.
This project uses a video in the background of the landing page, behind a parallax layed logo. The rest of the site gives information on the different faces of the event, and uses a minimalistic parallax to give the information in a clean way, while still focusing on the use of images.
This was a website developed for a photography start-up based in Wisconsin. This photographer wanted a clean look, easy on mobile and desktop for clients to navigate, that provides an accurate representation of their work. To see this site go to mikaylamichelle.com
This site utilizes these three functions to provide a better idividual customer experience:
-Immediate contact links, with location finder, upon landing on the site.
-Easy HTML5 functioning, both up to date and still quick to load.
-Easy to understand contact forms for better communication.
This design was developed for a month long sermon series at citychurch Tulsa. This series was meant to encourage the congregation to pursue a life that lives above the status-quo through purusing a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Be The Hero
This pamphlet was developed as an informational tool to represent the organization, World Compassion, while at a conference in Jacksonville, Florida. This conference was a great location to make connections with other organizations interested in helping fund the programs they were invested in. The pamphlet gave specific information on how they could get involved, but also keen ways they could invest into the programs themselves.
This project utilizes a simple white frame to give focus on the photography of the design. Photography from the field is the best way this organization communicates, and thus it played a large part of the marketing in this pamphlet.
This was a project developed for a local Tulsan creative and musician. The branding was a script handwriting done to give more personality to the logo.
The overall site design was developed as a simple business card style online profile. This design focused the giving of minimal information to increase the level of contact with the viewer with interactive communication. The idea was to read less and interact more.
Real Life Church
This site and logo set was developed as for a church located in smaller-town Oklahoma. This was a relatively new church with the goal of bringing the gospel, not just to their area, but to cities as a whole as they grow and spread.
The design of the logo really played off of the city ministry style with a focus on one building as the center, showing light to all the others. The branding fits in well with a simple site, clean to show the different photos and events that they will be having forthcoming.
The site had a very simple full-width image header on each page, and really gave the church a chance to show off their images and different forms of design/imagery.
Had full giving availability for the churches members to support online.
Really great and easy forms of getting in touch with the church to find more information.
This branding set was designed for an Indian based ministry attempting to globalize the ministry of the gospel. This ministry came to me with an existing logo and website, and we rebranded, all the while keeping their mission and focus the same. This project used a parallax scrolling in the web-design and gave a very modern feel to the user. The goal, being that many of their users/donors were in an older audience, was to attract a younger audience and to carry the ministries donations base.
These were printed invitations designed with an eclectic font choice to help give the feel of a country-western party. I later shot photography for the party. This invitation set was designed with some of the more western looking fonts and went along well with the party's setup.
This was a logo produced for a local Tulsan Musician. This logo was used to help market the musician for opportunities to play and find music based employment. This logo uses minimalism to accentuate the creativity and color behind it.
This logo was developed for a construction firm based in Pennsylvania. The client requested that this logo be creative in a minimal way, but wanted to stay away from the typical symbols related with construction. This was our final project.
