Welcome! I'm a graphic designer who specializes in branding, lettering, and illustration.
Designing logos is one of my favorite things to do. This is a collection of logos I have designed, many of which feature custom lettering.
I designed these various Instagram promotions for different events and sales, including Etsy Dallas events, sales for our product business, and for my band, The BenYays.
This is a collection of self-initiated lettering projects. Whether it’s just drawing decorative characters or using a laser cutter to create a sculpture, I really enjoy exploring materials and styles with lettering.
This is a collection of various illustrations I have created. From top to bottom, left to right: Bicycle Map, Nick Bell, Artist’s Rube Goldberg, Bulldog, Sausage Dog, and Baseball.
Crate & Barrel
I worked with Crate & Barrel to concept and design a few products for their artist’s line. We created a Mother’s Day teacup, a set of ceramic typographic holiday ornaments, and a limited edition house ornament to raise money for Rebuilding Together.
To launch our company, Landry Print Co., I designed our first collection of products around a custom ampersand. The collection includes a t-shirt, an enamel pin, 2 temporary tattoos, a sketch book, and an 11 x 14 inch screen print. The collection is available for purchase here.
I designed this Sherlock Holmes Book Cover for Bender Bound, a company that sells books with a hidden flask inside the pages. The lettering and illustration are all custom, and it is printed with a gold foil on brown leather.
This is a collection of art prints I have designed and screen printed over several years. They range in content, colors, and styles but are all 18 x 24 inches in size. From top to bottom: Octopus Vulgaris, E Pluribus Unum, King of Beers, Bottoms Up!, Denton Courthouse 1, Denton Courthouse 2, Vinylcycle, and Louisiana Egret.
I Am ProHeart
I was commissioned by BBDO Chicago to hand-letter quotes for Bayer Aspirin's I Am ProHeart Facebook page. The quotes were pulled from the I Am ProHeart community, a group of heart event survivors and their loved ones.
50 Days of Lettering
This collection represents a 50 day creative project. I discovered that the Merriam-Webster website releases a “Word of the Day” through its social media accounts. As a person interested in lettering, this seemed like the perfect content for me. For 50 straight days, I created a customized type treatment for the word of the day. Here you can see a poster and some of my favorite results from the project.
In order to facilitate a speedy methodology, I set many restrictions for myself. No typefaces could be used; each letter would be drawn from scratch. I only used the color black. Each word would have to be finished that day, and I would try to spend one to two hours per word. I tried my best to not repeat the type styles. Sometimes, if a word lent itself to a conceptual treatment, I would attempt it. Many days though, I simply pursued a typographic design that I wanted to try, without regard for what the word meant. Planning a daily creative project, and actually sticking to it, was a very rewarding endeavor. The daily work expanded my vocabulary as well as my lettering abilities.
