“Piece from a different Drink & Draw I went to tonight at Changing Hands Bookstore Phoenix and pit on by Fuzzy Headspace. This one had a live model. Was fun working from a model again, realized how much I’ve missed it. Took some liberties with the background.”

I recently had the opportunity to design this postcard for The INN Between’s annual fundraising event. Hospice for the homeless—compassion and care for ANYONE who is dying—is something I wholeheartedly believe in, and I’m so glad I could help.

Submission for #SLDdesignolympics

“And alas my submission for task #3 from last night. Tbh, wasn’t quite sure how strict the guidelines about using the colors were/if we could just choose one…so I just incorporated all of it lol.

Also, Salt Lake Design Week was awesome! So much gratitude for the people who made it happen. And super stoked for what next year has in store”


Esther Longmore

“This is what I made today. I work for the funnest company!”

NEWS: Interview with Alumni Esther Longmore

What advice would you give to aspiring designers looking to build a successful creative business?

The thing that sits with me most today is to always strive to improve yourself. There’s a concept in Japan called kaizen, which means ‘continuous improvement.’ Sometimes improvements are small, but if you’re constantly challenging yourself, many small changes become monumental transformations over time. It’s in our nature to grow and learn, and it’s always satisfying to look back and see how far you’ve come. Plus, you become more marketable and in demand as you increase your skills and abilities.
