I concepted, illustrated and designed this wedding invitation. The theme was classy with a subtle Harry Potter touch. The phrasing for both the invite and the details card was carefully researched and crafted. In this PDF, the names are placeholder to protect the identities of the actual people who the invite was for. See https://www.etsy.com/shop/MKRdesignstudios for more.
Working with Hannah Koschak, a local dietitian and the owner/founder of Wholesome Endeavors LLC, I created a custom artichoke logo and brochure that really speaks for her brand. Hannah wanted a new brand that felt healthy, positive and encouraging while incorporating her favorite vegetable, an artichoke.

My main role for this real estate booklet was to redesign the layout and content. I came up with a new concept for the look and feel and with client approval, applied it to all the pages and re-worked the copy to match. I also illustrated the icons on page 5 and came up with new suggestions throughout the entire guide.
