Retro-inspired giftables and goods that inspire adventure, encourage play, and celebrate the simple things in life.

As a kid growing up in the 80's, times were simpler. Adventures were had riding bikes, climbing trees, and bug watching. There was a freedom to play and imagine without boundaries or inhibitions. Without the the internet and cell phones, there was little distraction to rip us away from those carefree moments. 

To a degree, I think we all yearn to go back to the 'good ole days' for those very reasons. But because Doc Brown has yet to invent a REAL time machine, I’m left to bring a little bit of that back into my every day—and into yours—through design and illustration. This is “design at play” and the reason for doing what to do.

With each design, I hope to inspire the exploration of new things to enrich people's lives, to help people find space in their life for carefree moments and breathe, or to allow people to share their passions with the world in a uniquely expressive way. These are the design principles that guide me and my work so I can not only live my best life, but inspire that for your lives. 

By combining design inspirations from the past with a modern design style, I'm able to evoke nostalgia and create authentic designs that are classic yet fresh. 

My work is influenced by themes of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s where colour was playful, typography was whimsical, and design was wildly experimental and full of imagination. My work is also heavily influenced by my own personal adventures which includes travel, being among nature, and living life to the fullest.
