PRSA Uppercase Awards.

One of my favorite projects from this summer has been designing the call for entries and invitations for Oklahoma City’s PRSA Uppercase Awards. Public relations is a younger group of professionals and we wanted to reflect that in a fun way. (Speaking of the design, it was actually influenced by a birth announcement a friend sent out for her son a few years ago!)


Deluxe Craft Weekend.

Lately I’ve realized that I never share any of my own design work with you, so I’m making an attempt at changing that. I just finished up this logo for the Deluxe Craft Weekend yesterday and am really pleased with the outcome.

If you live in the Oklahoma City area and want to know more about the event you can check it out here. It’s taking place Friday, September 25th through Sunday, September 27th. There will be ten a la carte workshops, crafting advice and support and plenty of good eats. If you’re interested jump now because registrations are limited to 30!


Sony Webbie HD Camera.

My boss, Jeff, surprised all of us this morning with Sony Webbie HD Cameras! We’d been talking about flip cams for months around the office and he decided to get us each our own as a thank you for all of our work.

I’m pumped to figure out how the little guy works and to put him into action in as many ways as possible. And of course that will include video making its way over to Design Crush as well. Any ideas on how you’d like to see video put into action around here?



This is me at work today. (Except more brunette, bustier and wearing jeans.) Those birds are my clients and the projects that are all of a sudden flocking back after weeks out. All at once. Can you see how awesome it is?

My Clients.

This is how they’re making me feel today. Yeah, I’m the chick on the ground being choked with that lady’s leg. Grrr. At least I have a cool bustier bodysuit on.

HD in 3D.

HD is Hester Designs, the design shop where I work. And 3D is our holiday card this year which extends to a specially designed 3D web site. No worries, if you don’t own 3D glasses you can request a pair from the site and we’ll send them your way. Cheers!


The Bane of My Existance.

Unfortunately, my computer-related life has been hell this week. Monday we got brand spankin’ new 17″ MacBook Pros at work. Woohoo! However, since the arrival of mine I’ve been consumed with reinstalling, updating, etc. and now I have to reinstall the entire system because of some glitches. So this is just a quick update to get rid of my Blogger’s Withdrawal before being completely incapacitated for another day and a half. Here’s a picture of the little bastard and my new 20″ monitor as well, which has been nothing short of a widescreen joy.


Movin’ On Up.

Today is moving day at the office. We’re smack dab in the middle of some renovations, upgrades, decorating, etc. Which also means that as of today I am on the same floor as all the other designers. Since I started here three months ago, I’ve seriously been on a completely different level than everyone else (and I’m not speaking metaphorically). So now I’m a part of the Cool Crowd and sharing an office with my fantastic co-worker, Chris. Luckily we have a lot of the same taste in music, and since I’m constantly on the prowl for new ear candy it will be a huge bonus. There are a lot of cool projects in the making here, so there will most definitely be more posts and pictures to follow.
