I just discovered Red Antler recently and am totally blown away.
Their personal company branding is some of the most sophisticated, posh and exquisite stuff I’ve seen in a long time. Their work totally speaks for itself and is absolutely gorgeous. They seem to nail the perfect combination of color and know when to make it pop on every project. Their use of just the right typography is also most impressive. I will declair, ladies and gentlemen, that Red Antler brings to branding what the Pixies bring to punk rock (booom).
This little gal has been the biggest part of my life for 10+ years now. And we’re still going strong! She plays with her mini kong balls everyday and wags that tail just as sassy as the day I got her … the absolute love of my life!
Career Update Fall 2014
I am writing today, friends, with some great news about a new opportunity I’ve been given recently.
I’ve managed to land a sweet gig at a local boutique agency here in RVA called Red Orange Design. Having switched gears a bit from the larger full-service ad agency I was working at prior —with West Cary Group — there are actually only five of us that work there. Our small team is made up of me as the designer, my buddy Jolinda is the senior designer, Susie is the creative director, Ryan is the lead developer and Laura is the project manager. We have become quite the tight nit little crew since I started — I must say — in just a short couple of months.
I’m very grateful for this next great adventure and foresee many exciting creative endeavors ahead!
Thus far, I’ve already helped out on many projects, alongside a super talented creative director leading the team. Projects have ranged from annual reports to infographics to logos to corporate identity to websites … you name it. Below are a few examples to give you a taste of the work we do.
Enjoy and stay tuned!

“To design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit; it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to modify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade, and perhaps even to amuse. To design is to transform prose into poetry.” — Paul Rand
Today is my sweet niece Millie’s 6th birthday.
“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” – Roger Caras
And by niece, I mean a little furry friend that wags her tail and barks. For you see Millie — aka Mildred as I like to call her — just so happens to be a dog. She belongs to my sister. Tina adopted her a few years after I got Sadie. After living with them for several years here in Richmond, Mills and I became very close. Sadie is quite fond of her too (but she’d never dare admit it). What I like best about Mildred is this somewhat shy, somewhat quirky, personality she tends to possess. Although she can be timid at times, you can be certain that if she truly likes you, then you should really feel good about yourself. She’s extremely limited with those she will accept into her world (as to not bark her head off at you or be finicky with). So we run a pretty tight ship, she and I. This past year, or so, we’ve bonded even more so due to me keeping her while Tina continues to travel lot. Sadie and I enjoy those slumber parties, though. She adds just enough spice to this simple life I lead and I love her dearly.
So today, friends, I celebrate Mildred – dedicating this post to her and the added happiness she continues to bring into to my world.
