The Kills are a popular garage rock band of Domino Records featuring Alison Mosshart & Jamie Hince. After reaching out to Alison prior to the band's tour for the album 'No Wow,' I was honored to have the opportunity to create one of their gig posters. Playing off of the male/female duo's band name, this piece was hand drawn for their show at KOKO in London.

Sauganash Brewing Co. is a quaint beer-making operation in Chicago named after the first tavern established in that fine city, in 1831.

The wedding couple reached out to me to create an invitation package that would reflect the same style as their vintage Chicago venues. With the ceremony in the city's oldest church and the reception just down the road in a historic hotel, the designs called for a distinctly craftsman-like approach.
The invitations were adorned with hand-lettering and then letterpressed. They were then sealed in custom embossed envelopes lined with an image of Old St. Patrick's and sent off.
Born from corporate fatigue and a serious canine passion, Chicago Dog Walkers has successfully become one of the city's most recommended service-providers. Awarded "#1 Dog Walking Service" by the Chicago Reader in 2010, business had since propelled, and in turn, called for a brand reevaluation. This gave CDW the opportunity to embrace their fun and friendly culture while making a noticeable shift away from their competitors' collectively similar style and tone. A great collaborative client relationship led to a fresh and welcoming new site for Chicago's four-legged.

Believe it or not, I know the one man on the planet that has never laid eyes on the internet: my dad. So when it came time to properly give his home painting business an identity, I had to make sure it was something that he could reproduce in true analog fashion.
The logo was created with the intent that it would mainly live as a business card, or as a vehicle magnet - thus needed to exhibit all relevant business info in one container. In the end, it became something easily replicable for restocking collateral or slapping on a new estimate form.
