Always Wedding Invitation

I concepted, illustrated and designed this wedding invitation. The theme was classy with a subtle Harry Potter touch.

Wholesome Endeavors Brochure

After designing the logo, I applied the new brand guidelines we established to a new trifold brochure design where I re-arranged the content and re-wrote a lot of the copy.
