I’m so excited to be able to share some of the design work I did recently for Connie at Dirty Footprints Studio. Connie is an artist/teacher/entrepreneuer who continues to inspire me with her business, passionate online art programs, and overall entrepreunerial spirit. Today, Connie launched her new program called IGNITE, a ten-month teacher training program for artists.
Here’s a little snippet from Connie’s IGNITE page about the program:
“IGNITE is a ten month, highly intensive FEARLESS® Painting Teacher Training program designed to empower, transform, and IGNITE YOUR creative spirit, YOUR Artistic voice, and YOUR innate qualities and strengths as a teacher…
IGNITE will prepare you for all aspects of powerful teaching–from the mechanics of creating a successful lesson/workshop/retreat, to effective methods of teaching both in person and online, to building strong professional relationships and community, to learning the necessary essentials of making creative teaching your business.”
Connie and I recently took a year-long yoga teacher training program together at Yoga Pura, so in addition to being my freelance graphic design client, she is a classmate that traversed the (rocky-yet ultimately fulfulling) road with me to become a certified yoga teacher. I am in awe of her being able to put together her very own complex, rich, and totally inspiring program of her own! I think we both know how transformative these types of programs can be when fueled by strong intentions of service.
To add to this, I was able to be a part of creating the brand identity for IGNITE, including a logo mark & web banner. Connie gave me a few keywords that she felt would best portray the intention of her program : authentic, remarkable, leadership, creativity. I was able to take that as my starting point and start the creative process of capturing the visual essence of an exciting program that will spark people’s authentic leadership!
Here is the end result of the logo, with my custom concept of an illustrated flame/spark that feels as if it could IGNITE someone’s creativity! I also designed a web banner to be placed on the main IGNITE page that will illustrate the program’s qualities for prospective students.
This is the type of project that really floats my boat. To help a creative, passionate entrepreuner bring her vision to life (and what a powerful one Connie has) is an absolute dream.
