2020 Branding for Local Artisan Market
Posted 11 months ago and submitted by Melissa Washburn | Share link: http://illo.cc/85241

Northwest Indiana’s Hunt + Gather Market, a unique quarterly market featuring vintage, handmade, art, food, and more from around the region has been around for 7 years now, and has excelled at reinventing and reinvigorating itself each year. Building a strong relationship with artists of all kinds in the area, owner Carey Rowell approached me to create the branding and advertising for the 2020 dates.

“Snakes represent a creative life force. As snakes shed their skin they are symbols of rebirth, transformation, immortality, and healing. A symbol of eternity and continual renewal of life.

The hand is the most frequently symbolized part of the human body. It gives blessing, it is expressive and it creates. According to Aristotle, the hand is the “tool of tools.” It is strength, power and protection. It is a symbol of service and generosity.”

This graphic is being used on social media, and a 4×9″ postcard with copper foil was printed to promote the event.

I had the pleasure of commissioning Melissa to create a fundraising illustration for dragonfly conservation. Melissa not only delivered a captivating image, on deadline, she also went above and beyond by hand-coloring each and every one of her prints. Melissa is a talented professional who understands the big impact of small details and going the extra mile. I wholeheartedly endorse Melissa as an illustrator, a professional, and a genuinely nice person.
