The order within a bee-hive is perfect and sustainable. The Metro Atlanta Bee Keeper's Association maintains a legacy of preservation and education about the honey bee and urban bee keeping. In an effort to raise funds via beautiful stationery and t-shirts, I was comissioned to create natural and accurate illustrations honey bees. After doing significant research about the honey bee and bee keeping I became fascinated by the structure of honey bee culture and bee keeping ephemera. The resulting illustrations were clear and accurate depictions of the different honey bee castes and essential bee keeping tools.

Honeypot is not just an online magazine, it's a movement. Featuring women in the food industry in every capacity and worldwide, Honeypot aims to empower the women they feature and their readers through honest and compelling stories and design.
As one of the first communication pieces I created for Honeypot, the press kit was Honeypot's first outreach effort. This kit was sent to significant women in the food industry, journalists, writers, publishers and more. Included in the kit were bios of the early Honeypot team, photography by founder Taria Camerino and a branded postcard to share. The cotton bags were hand screen printed.

Ladybird Grove and Messhall is a retro camp themed restaurant located on the Atlanta Beltline. After two years of serving up excellent rustic fare and libations, Ladybird needed an updated menu look and feel. To unify the brand presence across the restaurant space, website and menu, I incorporated the imagery I curated for the website into a a menu structure with strong informational heirarchy.
