Over the past couple months I was approached by a friend who has been working in corporate america, and has become fed up with certain facets of how consumerism is taking over many aspects of society today. He partnered up with another frustrated companion, and together they are starting a new movement in positive consumerism called buypositively. While they’re still in the beginnings of this journey, they’re provoking awareness over on their blog. I urge you all to bookmark, subscribe, or whatever else you fancy, over there! They bring up great points to live by, and can help you navigate this cluttered world a little better. Plus, you get to start with them at the beginning before this whole project turns into a huge success…and say you were there when it all started. Whoo!
Being dragged into the abyss that are fancy products and what-not, in the recent years I’ve been calling myself to buy products that last, and to buy products that impact the world in a positive way. While I’m still at the beginning of my own journey, and I’ve failed more often than not, the cause of buypositively resonates with me none-the-less. Over the winter season, I donated some time to helping them out with a logo. Check it out!
And on my last note, subscribe to the buypositively blog people! Thanks.
And it’s done. Here is the revised and final version of AMA Natural Healing.
The premise for this project was to solve the issues associated with curing common ailments. After research, including going through the process of meeting with a chinese medicine practitioner and acupuncturist for 3 months every 2 weeks (Nicole, you’re amazing!), I realized that in depth natural healing that could cure was something that needed to be done one on one, and not something that people could or should take on alone. After more research, I found that certain vitamins and herbs could be taken to help alleviate common ailments when needed. I feel I was able to bridge the gap between how natural healing is marketed now, and how it should be for the general population. Natural healing is hard to understand, and that scares a lot of people off. AMA aims to make the process of using natural healing easy to understand and accessible to the general population.

I just added the logo concepts that I worked on this summer for the Ex Libris bookstore. This was such a fun project to experiment with, as each intern at Working Class Studio was asked to create ten logos. It was a lot of work, but I was able to work with letterforms and creating my own type for many of the logos. This project is the one that prompted me to learn calligraphy, and that’s something that I’ve been continually practicing and using at least on a weekly basis.
Take a look!
Oh, and I promise that I’ll actually get my website running over this break and stop relying on behance completely. Yeah, this is more of a promise to myself than to you, but I thought I’d make that public so I can get on my own butt about getting it done.
