story hum logo


A commission for a writing prompt website called story hum. The main features in the logo were to have a mouth and a speech bubble, and to have the logo be childlike and friendly in its execution. Playing off of these themes, I decided to pull bright colors to invite viewers in and to make it as fun as possible.

sexy kabob podcast logo

A fun design project that I had the pleasure of working on for a new up-and-coming podcast titled “Sexy Kabob.” This was a welcome challenge for me, as it is humorous in nature, but also a new opportunity to branch out and draw different subject matter than my other bodies of work.

The approach to this piece was to make an eye-catching design, using unconventional colors that draw the viewer in. Bright neon pinks, purples, and yellows lend to the unconventional feel while still reflective of a “romantic” color palette. For the type, I wanted to use a font with curves and a quirky nature, so that it compliments the rest of the image it is paired with.

the great ya quest podcast logo

A commission for a podcast entitled “The Great YA Quest” in which the host reads young adult novels in the hopes of finding one that is worthy of a five star rating. The driving concept behind this logo was to make it whimsical and humorous in its execution, with the fifth star breaking off into fragments and crashing into the podcast title book.

I was tasked with the role of creating animations and designing the pages for Instagram and Facebook stories as well as creating over 30 spot illustrations to accent the information being provided to viewers. The primary goal of this project was to encourage those who are indifferent to voting to get out and vote.
