Atypical Cards was created along with another designer, Becky Rodriguez. The side project is on-going and showcases designs that are a little different than what a greeting card company might celebrate. These cards focus on everyday interactions and bring attention to them in a humorous way. All cards are hand lettered and will soon be available for online sharing.
This set of lettering pieces are projects that I created outside of work to gain practice combining two things I really enjoy- snacks and type.
Lettering projects outside of work have undoubtedly pushed me outside of my comfort zone. They have helped me experiment with new styles, practice creating work for a digital medium, and promote my work on social media.

What the Phrase
In college one of my best friends’ favorite activities was having me translate phrases in Spanish for her… literally word by word. The literal translation sometimes differed a lot from the actual meaning, but it made for a hilarious phrase nonetheless! Fast forward a few years and What the Phrase is born- a lettering project that takes common idioms in Spanish and translates them into English, just for the laughs.
This series is also a side project and another way for me to practice lettering for digital platforms.
