fashion art: ping hatta

I have always had a strange addiction to figural artwork. I don't know who these ladies are but I love them so much…especially those of fashionably-dresses women. Maybe there's something about their confidence, the outfits, the grace? I don't know but I am loving the work of Thai illustrator, Ping Hatta. She does commercial work […]

hey boo (boo), let’s party!

Last week, we held a small brunch here in Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of the BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages by Oh Joy!. It was fun getting to hang with friends and have a party inspired by the smallest item we have ever designed! We filled Elysian with tons of color, pattern, good food, and […]

3 Ways to Wrap Odd-Shaped Objects…

Every year, I try and pick out unique gifts for friends and family whenever possible. But sometimes, those gifts don't come already packaged in a perfectly crisp, white box ready for wrapping. So rather then having to default to sticking those odd-shaped gifts into a not-so-cute gift bag, we wanted to come up with some […]

With the Oh Joy for Target collection, it's fun to turn some of the disposable pieces into other decorative accents for a party. Today, Rebecca and Patrick from Thuss+Farrell are here with this whimsical project using the Oh Joy for Target fall paper napkins turning them into fun paper flowers to use as placecard holders or gift toppers! We've provided a […]

DIY party people favor bags…

One of the best parts of designing the Oh Joy for Target collection is getting to work with other talented people (stylists, photographers, art directors, food stylists, and more…) to make the images on our packaging and in-store signage come to life. I had the opportunity to work with the amazing husband and wife team […]

happy friday + ruby’s 1st birthday party!

Last month, we celebrated Ruby's 1st birthday! Even though no one really remembers her first birthday, we still wanted to celebrate with a big party, as it gave us an excuse to see our friends and celebrate our first year as parents, too (we're still in one piece)! We held Ruby's party at Grand Park,—a […]

pop-up place cards…

Ever since I was a kid, I've loved pop-up books. Maybe it's because I was always meant to be a graphic designer, or maybe it's because I just love seeing something flat go from two dimensions to three dimensions with a couple cuts and folds. As we head into the holiday season, I've got some […]

spotty paper perfection…

When I saw this wrapping paper at Anthropologie, my eyes nearly popped out of my skull. Amazing paper + the most beautiful and simple packaging (those die cut letters!)…gah…! A gift wrapped in this would be seriously so fun to open…

leaf bracelets…

…and a whole lot of amazing patterns filled Mara Hoffman's Spring 2013 show. I mean, these dresses and their colors? Yowza. {images via StyleBistro}

sustainable suds…

Last year, I created the branding and packaging for a line of soap called Hand in Hand. For every bar of soap purchased, another bar is donated to a child in need. We've been working on some brand new packaging to incorporate their new scents, and I'm thrilled to share some of my recent design work […]
