Logo Design for Ruth Eileen Photography

Logo DesignRebecca JoasComment

About a month ago, Ruth Eileen launched a new look for her brand and business, along with a new website.  Kyla Mary pulled together the full brand design for Ruth, which came out absolutely beautiful!  I have to say - it was such an honor to work alongside these two amazingly talented ladies, I was blown away when I was asked to hand letter Ruth's new logo.  I love being able to help bring someone's vision to life, and seeing the love and passion they have for their work was truly inspiring!  

Ruth had a great vision in mind for her new aesthetic - simple, soft, organic, fun, natural and bright.  She also knew her customer very well, some of the phrases that stood out to me in describing her ideal customer were:

  • Someone "who understands there is beauty in simplicity" 
  • Someone "who takes the time to think about the little details"
  • How important of an aspect these details are

With that in mind, I knew I wanted to create something that was simple and soft, but that still had minor points of interest.  This project was so much fun and I poured my hear into it, here's the final hand-lettered logo design.

I also wanted to show a few of the other original options I had sent her to show some variation in styles.  Keep in mind these are just concept sketches, they have not been touched up at all. 

Below is a peek at Ruth and Kyla's final branding board - amazing work and it was such a pleasure!

Logo Design for Jess Blazejewski

A dear (and AMAZINGLY super talented) friend of mine, Jess Blazejewski, recently asked me to design her logo.  I literally squealed with excitement when she asked, I was THAT happy.

She was looking for something loose, fun, graceful and feminine.  Most of her work is romantic with a vintage modern flair (and did I mention how amazing her work is?). 

Here are photos of some concept sketching for Jess's logo.

And below is the final logo design.

I'm also including some of her gorgeous work.

Logo Design for Nathalie Fanfan

Logo DesignRebecca JoasComment

A few months ago, I was asked to do a logo design for Nathalie Fanfan, a local Boston area fashion stylist and personal shopper.  

Nathalie was looking for a simple and classic feel for her new logo.  These were the final results.  I created two versions of her logo, one with less flourishing for a cleaner and simpler look.  

Below is some of Nathalie's amazing work and click here to check out her new website.
