I was looking through our wedding photos and realized J doesn’t get enough recognition on here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It may not be our anniversary nor his birthday, but I think any day is a great day to show some appreciation for my human. So, here are a few reasons I’m thrilled with my husband choice:
He listens, like really listens. I’ll be telling a story and he'll ask “what then?” Which, if you’re a female, you know is MAGIC. Get you a partner that cares about the small stories that don’t matter in the grand scheme of anything. If he doesn’t care about those, he probably won’t care about the big, important ones either. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He supports my dessert fetish. And the small fortune I spend to have my hair highlighted. Both very important. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He’s the sounding board behind Sela Vie. He helps me make decisions, he gives me feedback on client work, and he reminds me to rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thanks for being the best ever. I still can't believe you're mine.
Sustainable Design, 2019
For this brief, we had to create and market a product that focused on sustainability, and addressed the problem of waste with one or more of the five strategic R’s of recycling: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair, Refuse.
The brief responded to some of the most burning questions today: How can we live a more sustainable life? How can we reduce our impact on Earth? How can we reduce the amount of waste that is created every single day?
This is the brand overview that I created at the end of the project:
“Compassion en Papillote is a brand whose primary focus is on reducing the unnecessary cruelty towards animals in the food industry. Science has advanced so much so that we are now able to create meat in a sustainable way which doesn’t involve killing the actual animal or harming them in any way.
The name comes from the cooking technique “en Papillote”, where food is cooked in paper, and “Compassion”, as our process is compassionate towards animals, the planet, and you. Our brand cares about the environment and so we promise not to use any plastic in our packaging. Our raw cuts of meat, that can be bought at our butchers or deli counters in supermarkets, are wrapped in butcher’s paper, to give that familiar feel, then stamped with our logo and a fact about why you should “ #ChooseCompassion”. This ink is edible, safe, and when activated by heat in the oven, transfers onto the meat via dye-sublimation. This is a fun and unique way of educating people on how they are helping countless animals, the planet and themselves.” -
Here is the packaging I designed, with the stamped logo and fact.
