Small Businesses

Collaborating with small businesses offers unique opportunities to create custom visual solutions. By closely collaborating with owners, I ensure each design accurately reflects and enhances their brand’s story, driving their business forward.

The Copper Hog Gastropub

For The Copper Hog Gastropub, I blended fun and sophistication to reflect the chef-owner’s passion and the high quality of the cuisine. The branding includes an old-fashioned etching of a hog and a menu designed with varied letter styles reminiscent of vintage posters. To further enrich the gastropub’s elegant yet whimsical branding, I created letterpressed coasters adorned with quotes from Charlotte’s Web, enhancing the establishment’s unique ambiance.

Budapesti Kádár

When I designed a brochure for Budapesti Kádár, The Premier Hungarian Cooperage, I aimed to honor the brand’s long history and artisanal craftsmanship. The design uses classic typography, a foiled tree etching on the cover, and a transparent flysheet displaying a map of the Tokay region. A sepia effect to the photos adds a vintage and sophisticated touch, effectively presenting Budapesti Kádár’s rich heritage.

Village Haus Soap Co.

I took inspiration from the client’s family ‘hausmarke’ (house mark) and a drawing by the client’s young daughter for the branding of Village Haus Soap Co. The goal was to create a sophisticated yet personal brand look. I chose classic fonts and motifs to achieve a timeless aesthetic. The design includes a unique vertical label printed in black ink on textured, soft-white paper, which helps bring out the vibrant colors of the hand-crafted soaps. This label effectively captures and communicates the artisanal essence of Village Haus Soap Co.


I designed the cookie box packaging for Breadfarm using a combination of personalization and playfulness. The packaging showcases hand-scanned lettering and custom motifs, with the “O’s” in the name playfully designed to resemble cookies. This creative approach ensures the packaging is visually distinct and effectively communicates Breadfarm’s unique brand narrative. (Employed at Bison Bookbinding & Letterpress)

Bison Bookbinding & Letterpress

At Bison Bookbinding & Letterpress, our mailer design captures the essence of our unique design and print capabilities. It features whimsical etchings of bison under a vast blue sky on heavy-weight stock, emphasizing the tactile quality of letterpress printing. The ornate typography and a prominent Bison seal convey our services’ exceptional craftsmanship and originality, demonstrating why “Printing should be felt as well as seen.” (Employed at Bison Bookbinding & Letterpress)
