Meet the down to earth photo duo behind some of my favorite collaborations.

Chris & Kristin are The Barkers - an incredible husband & wife photography team hailing from Chicago, Illinois. I am so glad to see how much these two have grown their business since we’ve worked together, now running a full fledge creative studio. What was the hustle like before? Let’s start with our full portfolio update.

It's always exciting to find creative ways to pull the Barkers bold personalities into whatever we're working on & this "Field Notes Promo" project was no exception. A punched out "B" was one of my favorite details we decided to use, both in this promotion and several others in order to help build a strong brand recognition. We kept the design playful, youthful and quirky to match their photography. This promo in particular was actually a notebook: there are blank pages inside :) 


Over the years working together, we designed several emailers together. Here's just one of my favorites.

Shimmery. Gold. Envelope. Have I mentioned I freaking love these guys? Our very first promotion together and one of my favorites to boot. Taking a strong "High School Memory Book" vibe, we had a lot of fun with the details on our #StayGold mailer: from a custom postage stamp to custom gold binding, a belly band with tear off postcard and hand lettered envelopes. These are the kind of projects that make me love what I do!
