I specialize in logos/branding, promotional pieces, social media engagement and advertising, banner ads, publication design/typographic layout, book design and non-profit awareness. I would love to give you an estimate and help you create your needs in digital or print marketing for your business, church or non-profit organization.
My husband wrote a book this year! This was a really fun project with being able to design the cover, do the book layout and formatting and social media promotional. Here is a little snip-bit about the book:
What is the good life? What is our ultimate aim as humans? What is the end to which we are created?
These are the questions that each of us have to answer to be able to draw lifelong meaning and purpose. Yet they are also questions that constantly bombard us in our everyday scrolling as edenic-like images beckon us to do more, be better and work harder so that we can project an identity in the midst of a chaotic world.
What if there was another invitation in the midst of our cultural moment? An invitation that is not merely something unique to our modern world but in uniformity with the ages of the past from a story about our shared origins in opening pages of the biblical scriptures. A misunderstood story from our ancestors that invites us to just….be.
A countercultural invitation to form our lives to a different end. To a life patterned and postured around the presence of God, injected into the everyday rhythms and routines of life. The everpresent invitation of our true Father to find purpose in His Presence.

The past few months I have been collaborating with author and blogger, Christine Sine. She needed a new facelift for her blog, Godspace. I was able to design a new logo, themes, layout and help with vision. Her blog receives thousands of hits per day and is full of beautiful resources and inspiration. The new motto for Godspace is now, “an invitation to create a pathway to a more vital whole-life faith. Through diverse voices from around the world we seek to inspire readers to notice, explore and experiment with fresh ways to connect more intimately to God, more effectively to their neighbours and more responsibly to creation.”
This has been a very fun project and I am continuing to facilitate her blog and help contribute as well. We couldn’t have done this without the help from my web designer friend David, from 253Creative who masterfully helped us merge her old blog into what it is today. Check it out!
My husband and I just planted a church in Seattle, called Kardia. Kardia means heart in the ancient greek language of the new testament bible. The vision of Kardia is “cultivating hearts by practicing the way of Jesus together”. Designing the logo, website and many sermon series and promotions ahead has been a blast. There is something to being able to create for your own things than others sometimes. However, it can be more difficult too because I tend to over complicate it! Take a peek at the logo design for Kardia, our new website, retractable banners and some of the recent sermon series and promotional design this past few months.
Now that Easter is over, I am trying to get back in the groove of blogging more consistently. This logo design was done a few months ago, however I never got around to being able to post about it! Yikes, it’s been a busy season.
Camp Bighorn is located in Montana and are in the midst of a totally new branding identity. They partner with youth and families, groups and individuals, providing a place both to rest and grow. Nesteled in the mountains of western Montana and on the banks of the Clark Fork River, they offer a one-of-a-kind experience for all.
I had the privilege to help design a new logo for them and a personalized style guide as they continue to venture into a totally new re-brand. They really wanted to have a mountain incorporated in their new logo, which is fitting! I gave them 4 options and they ended up picking D. Take a look..
I have had the great privilege to work with Christine Sine on her upcoming book of reflections that was just published, called Rest in the Moment. I had a lot of fun creating the graphics for her to go a long with her writing. She has a lot of fun elements that she adds in each section that made this book very interactive. I think this is a wonderful book to consider using as a devotional during the Easter season. It is a compilation of some of the best Monday meditations from her blog, Godspace arranged in a form that invites you to rest, refresh and renew. The twelve meditations in this book are designed to provide moments of refreshment. It is now available on Amazon in print and soon will be available on Kindle. Get a copy today!
For those of you in the church world, Christmas starts way before December. For most, preparation and brainstorming begins in the summer…or earlier. Planning for this month takes a lot of effort and time with the various events and experiences that go on. Cascade Community was on the same boat and we had been working on these for a while, tweaking as they went with ideas that blossomed. We ended with a fun watercolor theme for all of their events in December. Below is a small view of some pieces of the Christmas media that I put together for their team, including a DVD cover.
We were in LA last week for a conference, so I feel like I am playing catch up now. Can you believe it is already mid-October?! Check out a few media pieces from the past few months that I have been working on.
This was a really fun project. Follow Me, Dr. Jan D. Hettinga’s first book, has a fresh new look! Recently published by Faith Happenings, The Safe King: Finding in Jesus the Leader You Can Trust now has an updated cover, title as well as fresh editing. I was able to help him out with new cover art and jacket with some promotional banners and stickers. Check it out on Amazon books and download to your Kindle!
