Go Giddy Pops
Working with my client I created all the branding for Go Giddy Pops, a popsicle cart start-up in Corvallis, Oregon. The work includes a logo, website, Facebook page, menu cards, business cards, packaging, and more. The client wished for a brand identity that would foster a sense of childhood excitement, something that’ll get you “giddy”. All the art direction is made to reflect this vision. Sold right along the waterfront, this new business surely brings a bright new light to an already welcoming city.

Some concept mockups for a Japanese-Spanish fusion bakery located on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. The idea came from my sister-in-law who wished to one day own and operate her own bakery. Stylistically the aim was to create something trendy and modern, simple and elegant - a small shop set up along a beach-side street.
A series of logos created both for clients and for fun over the years.
