Shadow Box Gift Ideas

A shadow box can make a really wonderful gift for a friend or loved one. Ink & Hammer Company has created a very unique way of dressing up the plain old shadow box. First, they will custom build a shadow box out of solid wood to the size you want and paint it the color you want, but more importantly, they screen print a personalized design on the glass of the shadow box. The design is printed on the inside of the shadow box so it is protected and won’t be damaged or scratched off. Screen printing also allows you to get a lot more detail than you can with cut out vinyl stickers. You can choose from a wide variety of designs and they will customize it with the information you provide. These would make a wonderful wedding gift, newborn gift, anniversary gift, birthday gift, or a gift just because. And who says it has to be a gift at all? Just buy one for yourself 🙂

If you’re looking for a great idea to wow someone special to you, then I highly recommend checking them out.

These are only concepts right now, but I think they’ll be produced. And the copy is written by Erin Ridgeway. She’s awesome.

Blenheim Ginger Ale. Ads for fun.

Erin Ridgeway and i decided to work on some ads. Just for fun. For a client we wanted to do work for. These have not been seen by Blenheim Ginger Ale, but if they do see them and would like to use them, then that would be fantastic. Blenheim is a soft drink unlike any other. It’s a ginger ale that is sweet, but also spicy. It’s delicious and will make your mouth happy, but it’ll also slap you in the face with its hotness if you’re not ready for it. Blenheim is a feisty drink that will leave you wanting more.

SCCF Invitation Package

I designed the invitations for this 2011’s South Carolina Christian Foundation banquet. I really enjoyed working with such great clients and creating a piece I’m proud to put my name on.
Once you remove the sticker, the piece unfolds into a circle and houses a card with all of the details about the banquet. The circle signifies the idea of paying it forward. Funding charities and giving, so the charities can in turn give.
