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.
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.
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.
35 Denton Music Festival Branding
35 Denton is a 3-day walkable music festival programmed in the burgeoning arts corridor in downtown Denton, Texas. I designed the branding for the 2016 event, which included a new logo, colors inspired by the festival’s namesake (Interstate-35), and inspiring festival photography.
St. Edward School
St. Edward School is a Catholic Elementary school in New Iberia, Louisiana. I worked with them to update their brand by assessing their visual needs, redrawing their logos, and creating an identity standards guide.
First, I updated the crest to be more clean, readable, and pleasing. I did this by removing unnecessary details, improving the spaces between shapes, and using typefaces that were clear.
St. Edward’s mascot is the panda. I redrew the Panda to look younger, hold up better at small sizes, and look more contemporary. My goal was to create a logo that the students of St. Edward would love.
Finally, I designed a new stationery set, and created some mockups for a tote bag, a coffee mug, and an embroidered uniform polo.
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.
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.
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.
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 worked with 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.
