Utilizing the girl's silhouette and mountain range to showcase vitality and imagination, capturing the integration between the spirit, soul, and body.


Our Sr. Leadership wanted a fresh take on a classic story, so we pushed the color tonality and mixed overlays, and added a quirkier character set.

All photos, handwriting, and sketching was in-house; showing the importance of solitude and difficult seasons. This is one of my favorites.


Our AD had the brilliant idea to represent the "human" element with her thumbprint while still finding the elegance of Advent.


Beautifully illustrated by our AD; wanting to capture the simplicity and timelessness of the Easter story.

Full-range campaign with thousands of physical "invitations" focused on taking tangible next steps; elegant design with a personal touch.


Our first series following Covid and all gatherings and events going online; leaning into "shapes" and vibrancy.


After scouring hundreds of photos, our team landed on three that showcase different seasons while aligning the overall color hues.


After five weeks of drafting designs that were too dark in mood, our team loved the "hope" and "light" found in this beautiful design.


This was a beautiful art piece we printed and gave to each congregant; arranged and photographed in-house; flowers from Trader Joe's!


An exciting way to showcase the nine "fruit" characteristics; one fun deliverable we generated were stickers—the kids, especially, loved them.


Searching for warmth amidst a cold winter, our desire was to create a familiar experience centered on being together.
