    uniE621 Chimera Creatrix Logo Suite
    A NJ model wanted to attract regional photographers to her modeling business as well as market her art and poetry. Since these three things are so different, she called the business Chimera Creatrix after the mythological beast. I used an ancient Greek color scheme and art style and a font that evoked that time. We used green to stand out from the usual maroon and tan and black used. All white and all black options were given for different photo backgrounds. #illustrator #logo #brand #typographyWW
    uniE621 Falling Into Midnight Apocalyptic Genre Fiction Book

    Wedding couple needed a program containing their information, directions to the reception as well as a fan for the Arizona September heat as well. They like to travel so passport stamps, international postage art, travel and map icons were used in their chosen colors. Mercury font was used for its many alternate letters to give a hand lettered look to their names.WW
