05 25 14 I'm a Jones Now
That’s right. I’m a Jones now!!
Three weeks ago today, my long time partner, Cameron, and I got hitched! It was the wedding of our dreams—an outdoor private ceremony at the Hotel Saint Cecilia in Austin, just the two of us. Well, except for the judge, Bob Perkins, and photographer and friend, Brooke Schwab.
Brooke has a pair of magic eyes and created a beautiful collection of images that we’ll covet forever. Here are a handful of my favorites.
Cheers to love and partnerships.

01 09 14 New Work / The Nouveau Romantics
Gold foil on a extra thick grey card stock with painted edges. Need I say more?
I had the pleasure of designing the new logo marks and business card for The Nouveau Romantics, a full service event planning company in Austin. If you spend just one minute on their site, you’ll see how incredibly talented Elizabeth Lewis and her team are.
Before I went to the drawing board, Elizabeth and I had a few conversations about what she envisioned, what she wanted and what she needed. I drew a lot of inspiration from looking at her work and the name itself, “nouveau” and “romantic”.
The results are a classic logo with a custom (and quite romantic) swash in leg of the letter “R”. The logo mark, seen on the front of the business card, is more modern. I brought the letters “TNR” together to create a bold, seamless graphic.
I loved executing this project and working with Elizabeth. She had a clear vision but also allowed me to design freely.
Are you in need of a new logo and think we’d make a good (design) match? Email me and let’s talk about your project!
In a perfect world, I would have blogged about these images in August. Instead, you’re getting
to see this summer series during a polar vortex.
I hope it warms you up or help you dream of your next summer vacation.
We chose a park in Austin that had plenty of wildflowers and overgrown grass. The results are soft and dreamy, much like Carleen’s clothes.
*This series was featured on Refinery 29!

This last image didn’t make the R29 cut but it’s too cute of Ana not to share.

12 03 13 Make your own holiday wrapping paper
Who doesn’t love a good splatter paint project?
Here are the few simple steps:
» Roll out a long strip of uncoated wrapping paper face up. (in the mail supplies section in an office supply store!)
» Pour white acrylic paint into a cup. If it’s thick, dilute it with a little water.
» Use a paint brush and flick it (like you’re drumming!) a few feet away from the paper.
» Let dry for a few hours before rolling back up.
This project was so fun and simple, it’s inspired me to make more! Next time I’ll be trying white paper with black paint. Or black paper with dark green paint. So many options!
