In 2012 I began a side project called Luna Press. I wanted to make lettering and print it in a way that was tactile and beautiful but also had a fun spirit. These cheeky greeting cards are dedicated lovingly to Brooklyn. I hand printed each card in the Hudson Valley using rubber based ink and either cotton or recycled paper.
I love the internet. Big time. This lettering series was inspired by the internet and my love of hip-hop culture. Buttons and other merchandise featuring these designs are for sale on my site shop as well as society 6.
I have worked as a designer for Hanky Panky since 2011. During my time as a with them, I've gotten to work on a wide variety of projects, including designing the bottles, packaging and complete campaign for their first ever fragrance. My personal favorite projects, however, have always been when I've been able to use my lettering.

Mimi and the Wolves
My good friend and wonderful cartoonist, Alabaster, gave me the honor of lettering the title on the cover of Mimi and the Wolves Act II.
These title cards were made for a student film called Lonetown by Gracie Pizzo. I was asked to make the cards to look like they were hand written on a chalk board and to include child-like sketches of scenes from the film.
The Fox Knows
These business cards do double duty as hang tags for The Fox Knows; an Etsy shop that sells vintage sewing supplies and fabric. The cards are letterpress printed on Crane's Lettra paper.

Emily + John
When Emily and John got married in 2014, they asked me to design them something simple and rustic to match their outdoor wedding. I worked with them to come up with an elegant wedding suite where the hand lettered script was the main focus. The colors of the envelopes and the Rifle Paper lining were the icing on the cake.
When I was contacted by a friend to make these custom bridesmaid invitations, I was given the phrase on the front and was asked to make it pretty. Success.
Alicia + Brendan
My friends Alicia and Brendan reached out to me and asked me to design these nautical invitations for their wedding at a yacht club in Long Island, NY. I kept it classic and elegant with surprises in the details with the design (check out the blind-printed Long Island on the Directions card) and had some fun with the beautiful envelope liners. In case you were wondering, the wedding was a blast.
The Small Medium
My friend Colleen is a psychic. She also happens to be very short in stature. When she told me her idea for a name, I wanted to make something whimsical to match. She also challenged me to use occult symbols but in a way that wouldn't scare people away. I am very pleased with the result.
Logo concepts for a a women's clothing company. I was asked to make a monograpm using influences from The Upper East Side of NYC, focusing primarily on wrought iron and leafy buildings.
