My friend Ben, who runs co-op wood & metal shop Bench, helped me design and plan what is now my work desk. I had a great time building it straight from slabs of Iowa walnut and milled steel (and probably a hundred hours of podcasts).
As a designer, it's my duty to design my wedding, right? I created a logo and built a responsive website as well as letterpressed and assembled invitations individually on Neenah paper. The final touch: heat-embossing the invitation covers using a wooden stamp, toaster, and hair dryer at my in-laws' cabin.
I was asked to participate in a PechaKucha put on by AIGA Nebraska and Design Alliance Omaha where presenters retold the story of Rudolph in an assigned medium. I was given music, so I wrote a 3-song EP from the perspective of emo teenage Rudolph (instead of the creepy omnipresent Burl Ives snowman) as he traversed his historic journey. The EP (and PechaKucha presentation) is available free at mynameisrudolph.com (or on Noisetrade/Spotify/etc.).
