Fifty Sixty

Fifty Sixty

Fifty Sixty is the moniker of a San Francisco-based furniture dealer specializing in vintage mid-century pieces. For these business cards, I illustrated several examples of home iconography from the era, including an Eames Armchair, a George Nelson clock, a Hans Wegner Papa Bear Chair, a Pollock Executive Chair, and an Architectural Pottery planter. I then created a repeating pattern featuring those illustrations.

Wedding Crest

Wedding Crest

In early 2015, I was asked to design a crest to be used as part of the decor, favors, and paper goods of an upcoming wedding. I created a symbol that represents the rustic spirit of the couple's home and the wedding's location: a charming, well-worn barn surrounded by golden fields that are speckled with oak trees on California's Central Coast. I illustrated each element of the crest by hand, including a central oak tree, a coastal horizon, and two iconic mountains from the region, encased in an acorn and flanked by olive branches — symbols of peace and examples of the area's famous agricultural bounty.
