The Beachy Cream ice cream sandwich packaging sleeves have arrived. Inspired by fun in the sun, beach balls and polka dot bikinis, ice cream just got a whole lot more fun. These are going to make killer favors at parties & weddings. You can see more of the branding project for my client here or visit their site to order ice cream online.

Odd fact about myself: I love helicopters. I have never actually been in one, but I love looking at them. I especially love the bulbous-shaped older ones and some of the cool old wooden propellers. Dying to have one hanging in my office. It's been one year in the making since moving to San Francisco and I still have yet to have a big fat helicopter painting or print on the wall behind my couch. I better get back on that. I actually love inspecting all sorts of planes, trains and automobiles. So much that I actually designed an entire shoe collection for Omelle with that in mind for Spring/Summer 2011. See the above "Illy" Omelle shoe. I designed that based entirely on helicopter shapes. So now you know. A) I love helicopters B) I love shoes and C) I need a vintage wooden propeller and a big helicopter print for my house.

I have spent the last 4-1/2 years at "chez vert" 438 N. Venice, here in Venice, California. On June 1st, that all comes to an end and a new chapter in my life will begin in the heart of San Francisco. This place has been a home away from home (Michigan) to me, and I am going to miss the little things the most. The sound of quacking ducks outside lets you know you are home. Watching mama ducks with their babies out the back window makes for the perfect lunch break. Walking or running in the Venice Canals and the smell of the ocean breeze in the summer work as natural stress relievers. I could go on for awhile about Abbott Kinney, our favorite places to eat and coffee trips here, but at last it's time to start saying goodbye Los Angeles and HELLO San Francisco!

October has brought some very interesting projects with it, including the Beachy Cream (Malibu's Natural Ice Cream) Identity & Logo Design. Who doesn't agree that Ice Cream is always fun? Beachy Cream's own Ann & I are hard at work on her logo, more to come later!
