An Italian restaurant in Columbus, Ohio owned by celebrity chef Cameron Mitchell, suggests one glass of wine is not enough. Marinated in the Mediterranean landscape, rich philosophy and contagious laughter, Marcella's brings authenticity of the Italian heritage to your table.
I wanted my strategy to be wrapped in the romance of the woman who brought this restaurant to life. The illustrative qualities of the logo symbolize the evolution of passion and youth in traditional Italian cuisine.
When I was first introduced to a non-profit organization called Birthday Wishes, they instantly pulled my heart strings. It is a foundation that provides birthday parties for homeless children across the East coast. Approximately 1.6 million children will experience homelessness this year alongside an uncelebrated birthday.
I created an online campaign with the idea "Each day has a name" with the tagline "Fighting against silent celebrations." I filmed a short video communicating what a silent celebration would be like from a child's perspective. Each cake represents a different child yet the foundation they sit on (stool) is the same human truth: We want to know we are valued.
Fun fact: Each cake was frosted bowls and pans.

Two native Ohioans, Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream and Two Caterers recently combined forces to create one heck of a team. They offer unique artisan sweets with the service of professional catering for weddings and engagements. The concept of the catalog revolved around the idea of a “Sweet exchange”. It symbolizes the trade of goods and services as well as the exchange of a life promise between a bride and groom.
