In collaboration with Lauren Sessa
What A Pear is a creative business founded by Lauren Sessa and I in October 2013. What A Pear combines Lauren’s illustration skills with my lettering skills to create designs for various food puns and other food related phrases. These phrases are printed and transferred onto objects that would be used in the kitchen. The designs blend our styles with a vintage twist. We aim to create handmade items that bring a flair of fun to a kitchen’s atmosphere.
Currently, we have created screen printed tea towels, aprons with screen printed, hand sewn patches, framed and unframed digitally printed grocery shopping lists, wood burned cutting boards, and digitally printed decorative prints. We print and create all of these items by hand, and try to use as many found or eco-friendly materials as possible in our products. Our creations are decorative as well as functional.
I also created a branding system for a website, tags, and business cards for What A Pear.
