Like-Minded Mamas Holiday Giveaway!

 

Book Giveaway

This has been a crazy fall for us here at TDco., but we’re happy to share with you one of our most recent projects that has come to completion!

Like-Minded Mamas

Meet Tonya, Heather and Stephanie, a group of three passionate women who make up The Like-Minded Mamas. Anything and everything natural health related, they’re on it! This fall, they have transformed almost every holiday recipe staple into healthy, nourishing alternatives that are satisfying for both the body and the mind. From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve, you’ll take comfort in knowing you’re staying true to REAL food when following their cookbook this holiday season.

With its organic letterforms and personal touch, hand-lettering was the perfect gateway to helping the book spring to life. In collaboration of layout with Crimson Design Works, we lettered anything from the cover to section headers to recipe titles with as much care and finesse as is used in each and every one of the Like-Minded Mamas’ recipes.

Take a peek and be sure to enter our holiday giveaway to win a free printed copy—simply visit the TDco Facebook page and comment on our giveaway post!

Happy, healthy holidays to you and yours.

Cheers!

Wagner Honey: Part Two

wagner4

The Wagner Honey story continues! We love building brands here at TDco., and this was a prime opportunity to do just that. With an approved logo and plenty of room to build, Beloved Bees was primed for some “buzzworthy” expansion (pun intended, obviously).

There is much to be said about a solid logo; it sets the scene for anything and everything forthcoming in your brand. Marketing collateral? Check. Packaging? Check. Website…working on it. One of my favorite things about being a designer is watching a brand blossom before me. The excitement of the client is nothing compared to the excitement a designer experiences when they see their “baby” unleashed into the wild world of commercialism; feeling as though you’ve created something strong enough to push itself through as the weak are weeded out is an incomparable high in the graphics realm.

This particular couple started Beloved Bees with the simple goal of making a satisfying product for family and friends. Just because your client has milestones that may seem easily reachable, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go above and beyond to exercise your creative potential—I take any and all opportunities to build out a brand.

We started with the mark…

Wagner-05-05Continued with a brochure that not only introduces the Wagners, but also describes both their beekeeping tactics and the farming history…

Also, might I mention (randomly) that I tested out this honey pot and dipper after shooting for the project and was very impressed with how handy it was for my tea!

I’m sure there is still plenty to come with this fun and comprehensive brand. But for now, the Wagner’s are set to sell some honey and tend to their hives. We wish them the best of luck in the expansion of their business!

Cheers,
J.
