LOST LOGOS | Under the Sun PR
Under the Sun has changed to another name that fits the company even more perfectly, so we are currently playing with new logo ideas for that, but in the meantime we decided to go ahead and share one of the logos from our process! As designers, sometimes projects change for the better but we still love the work we do and want to share, so we’ve decided to start posting some of our “lost logos.” Enjoy!

HOLIDAYS | It’s Halloween Season Again!
It’s our favorite time of year again — Halloween! Although we love the holiday we don’t like the gory decor it can sometimes come with in our own homes, so we try and find something a little more lighthearted ( and that goes with our current color palette) like these white skulls inspired by Dia De Los Muertos by Andrew Crosby. What are some of your favorite ways to decorate for Halloween?

EVENT | AFTERNOON ACAI | Influencers Tasting of the Blender’s & Bowls Fall Menu

BTS | MURAL | Giant Pineapples and VW Vans!
After working with Blenders & Bowls on their rebrand, we were thrilled when they asked us to design and paint a mural inside their new West Lake café. The concept for the mural is inspired by the owner’s love of the beach, and an idealized version of their original food truck, which featured the same yellow pattern as the VW Van in the mural. We had a blast painting this and eating their delicious Açai bowls! Check out the final mural, as well as some sketches and process shots below.

Loving the design these tow put together for February, though in Austin we ended up having a ton of 80 degree days!

WEDDINGS | Wedding Decor in Richmond, VA
In June we had the honor of providing decorations for an outdoor wedding held in Richmond, VA. The ceremony was held in historic Libby Hill Park, overlooking the James River which meanders through Richmond’s downtown. The view was a spectacular backdrop on its own, so the amount of decorations needed was very minimal. Also, having the wedding in a public park meant the decor had to go up (and come down) in a flash. So, we decided to work with delicate, fluttering garlands (we used a tutorial found on The House that Lars Built) and simple arrangements of fresh-cut hydrangeas.

DIY | Hand-Lettered Jock Jams T-Shirt
We had a cool vintage shirt that just said “Jock” and thought it would be infinitely cooler if it had “Jams” added to it. Brush-style lettering seemed like the perfect typographic style to contrast against the collegiate letters on the shirt, and from there the project fell into place.

After methodically filling-in the letters with seed beads and iridescent sequins, we flipped the hoop over and brushed matte decoupage medium over all of the loose threads, making sure to completely overlap the edges of the letters. The decoupage medium provides a three-fold benefit: it secures the loose beading threads (so they don’t loosen over time), it discourages future fraying of the cut edges of the letters, and it stiffens the fabric enough that the letters don’t warp when being placed as appliques.

Once the decoupage medium was dry, we cut out the letters one-by-one. Then, after pinning onto the shirt, we hand-stitched the letters onto the shirt. The finished shirt can be machine-laundered inside-out on the delicate cycle.
