Simply put, I design for wine.
Why focus on just wine? Because there is a huge need for it. Today, there are almost 9,000 wineries in the United States1 that produce the more than 60,000+ brands available for purchase2.
In a saturated market such as this, innovative and unique branding is key. It’s imperative that all the components of a brand (name, story, packaging, marketing materials, etc.) are consistent and executed with a well-conceived strategy.
My ideal clients:
Respect consumers by selling quality products
Operate sustainably (or is working towards certification)
Support the local community and environment
Respect their employees, consultants, freelancers, etc.
Are open to progressive, outside-the-box ideas
Understand the importance of design and allocate their time and budget accordingly
Are willing and active participants in the creative process
BONUS: Clients who prefer discussing hand-drawn concepts at a coffee shop vs viewing a slick powerpoint deck in a boardroom
Looking for something a little more “artsy”?
Here’s a sampling of some of my favorite personal projects.

Other? The Sky is the Limit!
Need something not on the list? I still might be able to help. And if I can't, I'll happily connect you with another designer in my network who can!
