Rock Solid Guidance for Disordered Eating

Every Body Therapy

Every Body Therapy (EBT) takes a size-inclusive approach to therapy for people struggling with disordered eating. When owner, Dr. Emily Derouin, approached me to create the brand identity and Webflow website, it was important to strike the right notes: approachable & lighthearted while honoring the seriousness of her service.

Let the Brand Shine

Natalie Fetter Photography

Natalie Fetter began her photography business as Simple & Sweet Photography. But it didn’t take long to realize that her brand – or lack thereof – wasn’t own-able and didn’t accurately convey quality, professionalism, or price point. Is Natalie still one of the sweetest photographers you’ll meet? Yes. Is her process still effortless? You betcha. But Natalie came to me for a rebrand & marketing website that better reflected her true business. Say hello to Natalie Fetter Photography.

Support the Team, Support the Dream


When Em, Founder of 1-800-PeopleOps, decided to create her own people operations agency, she knew she wanted a brand that was the perfect balance between playful & professional. Over one quarter, I partnered with her to bring this new brand to life.

Live Slow, Die Old

Colfax Ave Artist Series

As someone born & raised in Colorado, I was thrilled to be selected for the 2022 Colfax Avenue Artist Series. Inspired by the theme of “counterculture”, I created an art piece – and subsequent augmented reality experience – that rejected the “sleep when your dead” mentality.

Thanx for the massive website

An enterprise-grade brand needs an enterprise-grade marketing website. As the first public-facing asset post-brand refresh, I partnered with Thanx’s VP of Marketing to do a complete overhaul of the website.

Denver Headshot Co.

Denver Headshot Company had a familiar problem: an exceptional service, but a forgettable brand identity. I partnered with CEO/Founder Jackie to build a professional identity reflecting the brand’s true essence.

Thanx Brand Refresh

Thanx had a brand without an identity. Initially founded as a company tailored towards working with small businesses, Thanx needed a brand that reflected their evolution into an enterprise business that attracted enterprise customers. As Brand Design Director, I led the ID refresh, from review, strategy, and creative direction, to design, implementation, and iteration.
