Brine recipe cards for Essex Street Cheese Co.’s Greek Feta. An instructive, illustrated post card distributed to cheese shops to help keep their feta brine in tip top shape.

Essex Street Cheese imports the best of the best of European cheese. That means they work with the best affineurs, exporters, selectors and cheese makers for iconic styles of cheese - think Parmigiano, Manchego, you get the idea. I’ve illustrated some of these heavy hitters with their signature cheeses for promotional materials distributed to both industry insiders and giveaways at events open to the public.

Nothing like a pastry and a good book.
For High Street’s new concept at Franklin Table near the campus of University of Pennsylvania I illustrated menu items, ingredients and Philadelphia icons that were then printed on substrate and used to decorate the space.

In 2016 I spent two weeks living and working in the Netherlands with the fine folks of Fromagerie L’amuse. I worked on farms, visited aging facilities and sold cheese at their shops in both Ijmuiden and Amsterdam. ‘Kaas is Kunst’ is an illustrated collection of my time there.

Maker to Monger
Columbia Cheese - importers of cheese of distinction from all over Europe - invited me to design a t-shirt for them to illustrate their mantra “Maker to Monger.” The image shows a cheese maker in traditional swiss garb along with a cheese monger carrying a stack of Columbia-imported cheese. A Symbol of the old world and the new world working together to preserve traditional food ways for generations to come.
It's Not You It's Brie
I worked with food writer and cheese educator Kirstin Jackson on an identity for her website/blog/newsletter - which extended to a redesign of her letterpress printed business cards.
