Happy Thanksgiving — and 1-year-anniversary — from Yes Design Shop

Thanksgiving is here!

As it would happen, today also marks exactly one year since Yes Design Shop, and its website were launched. 

And so there are two good reasons to send out a bit of warm gratitude, and reflect on the past 12 months.

It’s been a great year; creative, and busy. 

I’ve had the chance to work on some awesome projects with some equally awesome clients, including: brand redesigns for San Francisco non-profit, CAMEO, San Diego-based Paleo blog, Stupid Easy Paleo, and Dallas yoga studio, The Mat; quirky motion graphics animation for the innovative company, Layer; a dimensional mural and wall graphics for Firebird Dance Studio; and custom wedding invites for newlyweds Carly & Ryan ... just to name a few. 

It was also lovely to get some love and recognition this past year from How Design, Graphic Design USA, Creativity International, CSS Reel, CSS Matter, and Best Businesses.

I’m really grateful today, that I get to do what I love, with people like you. 

So, thank you to the past 12 months, for being so good to Yes Design Shop. And mostly, thank you to all the great clients I've gotten to work with. You’re awesome. And here’s to the next great year.
