WANDERLUST RENTALS is the photo booth I rent out.
My dad hand built a beautiful wood framed photo booth with green screen technology for my sister's wedding in 2011. I suggested he rented it out to other weddings but he didn't want to go through the customer service part of it. He suggested that I rent it out and he could help me with the setup.
So, I branded the photo booth as "WANDERLUST RENTALS" because the green screen allows for users to be anywhere they want. Many of our weddings we've rented to have used significant locations around the world as backgrounds, for example a country they studied abroad together in, or the barn they grew up at.
More recently we've also used backgrounds that are more playful, for example "space cats" and pop culture references.

"An unmalicious post-shave affair!"
Graphics and custom vector illustrations created for the pop culture talk radio station myTalk107.1, based in the Twin Cities and streaming nationally.
myTalk107.1 is unique in that it is the only talk radio station in the country that talks entertainment all day. There are discussions about new movies, current events, special guests from the entertainment industry, and opportunities for listeners to call in and contribute to the conversation.
The station is very integrated into our social media channels and we rely heavily on our website to host promotions and share content shared on air.
I have helped developed an identity for myTalk that is modern, bold, colorful, and consistent with the use of flat primary colors, polka dots, sharp angles, and white space.
Elements used include gold leaf, feather, pencil illustration, repurposed frames.
Branding: including front-end web, mural, illustration, and packaging.
*NOTE* The mural with the characters I did NOT paint, just started the concept to be a part of the new VOLT brand. This was painted and illustrated by @BiafraInc, @Metrik1, and @prettyhard.
These scarves start as plain white silk. I stretch the edges before illustrating with gouda and filling in the spaces with silk dye. They are heat set and washable.
When one is purchased I ship in a hand crafted custom box I designed based off the size of the folded scarf.
