Production Design: Wonderbound's Boomtown
Wonderbound's April 2015 production of Boomtown included a collaboration with Denver's Chimney Choir.

Fully designed package included:
11" x 17" full color/bleed posters - two iterations created to reach the audiences of both Wonderbound and Chimney Choir. (pictured)

Fully scalable "Yates Rubber Duck Company" .eps logo created for use in the production (pictured)

Speaking Social Media
Maintaining consistent messaging across all platforms is incredibly important for your brand. With Wonderbound, I work to grow followers and connect them with whatever we're doing. It's incredibly satisfying for me to find new exciting ways to engage people through sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo and more.
Brand Integrity: Wonderbound
As Communications Manager for Wonderbound, it is integral for me to both expand knowledge and maintain the integrity of the Wonderbound brand. This includes the creation of a comprehensive brand style guide to ensure that there is consistent messaging across all mediums.
Brand Identity: Swag
Getting your name out there is tough, but when you have the right kind of swag your job is a little easier. I've designed t-shirts, hoodies, hats, mugs, stickers, rubber stamps, you name it. I get a rush from seeing someone wearing or using something I've designed.
