Nirvana Chocolate Designs

June 18th, 2015

A few months ago I was hired by the lovely people over at Nirvana Chocolate to redesign their main line of 4 chocolate bar wrappers. They were looking for a something Scandinavian-themed (with the exception of the coconut bar) and they wanted animals with personality. I thought it would be fun to post a little timeline of my process since this was a fairly typical job, workflow-wise.

 

Every project starts with sketches. My lovely clients and I got together and discuss exactly what they were looking for and I made sure I understood the purpose of the redesign, the client’s likes and dislikes, and their expectations. After that, I headed home to start visualizing the ideas. Here’s a small selection of the first batch of sketches…

After this phase, we met again and narrowed it down to one critter for each label. I did more detailed sketches for each label.

With a bit of tweaking things here and there…

we move on to the color phase.

And eventually come out with a product that everyone is happy with!

The best part about this project was the free samples. Every single one is delicious! These chocolates will be available for wholesale through the Nirvana website. I’m not sure exactly when, but I believe they will be in stores for individual sale sometime after that.  Stay Tuned!

Ipad App – Children’s Book

May 22nd, 2012

So I’m currently working with a company called Farfaria that makes children’s book apps for the ipad… how cool is that? If you have an ipad, you should go to their site and download the app to see all the great stories and illustrations they have on there. I’m probably not supposed to say much about it at this point in development, but I can say that I get to draw animals and how can you argue with that? More to come once it’s published…

The Fugue

May 13th, 2009

I am excited to say that my work is going to be on the cover of this month’s Fugue Literary Magazine. Many thanks to Andrew Millar, one of the senior editors at the Fugue, for making this happen! I was really impressed with the work they chose for some of their other covers and honored when they decided to use mine. I’ll post a copy when I get it in the mail!
