Captive IR is a boutique investor relations consultancy, located here in Vancouver, headed by Megan Helmer. Megan and I were colleagues in a former life, and when she approached me about designing the identity for her new venture, I was thrilled. It’s always fun to help a friend; and it’s especially fun to help a friend who is starting out on a new adventure.
I have some new work to share with you today and, as usual, I am excited to do so! Sarah Briese is the delightful photographer behind Sarahendipity Photography. Based, in Lee’s Summit, MO, Sarah specializes in fun, affordable photography for all the moments of your life. Sarah’s worked with Rachel of Serendipity Photography (hmmm… see the inspiration for her name?) for some time, but also wants to do some work on her own. She came to me to help develop a separate identity for her photography. And so Sarahendipity Photography was born.
I’m so, so excited to introduce you to Banana Abby! Is she not just the cutest little basset hound you’ve ever seen? Josh + Jenny Solar and their kids sure think so; that’s why they adopted her into their family and named their latest photography venture in her honour (Josh decided earlier this year that his wonderful dog photography needed a home of its own). I was so pleased when they asked me to work with them on Banana Abby’s visual identity and marketing materials. We worked together on the refresh of Solar Photographers (you can see that post here) and it’s such a compliment to get repeat work from a client.
I’m so excited to tell you about Julie! She’s an Omaha, Nebraska-based photographer who focuses on portraits and weddings. She’s kind of goofy, kind of introspective… and more than a little committed to expressing herself through her photography. She is also committed to helping her clients tell their stories through her images. I guess that’s why we connected so well – we both love to express ourselves visually!
I have had the great pleasure of working with Rebecca at Puzzlewood for… gosh, more than 5 years now. First we worked together at Ballard Power Systems, and then when we both decided to head out on our own, she asked me to develop the visual identity for her communication consultancy, Puzzlewood Communication.
