Design Throwback

Nov 12, 2015

I’ve been creating images for Keeping it Real: Through the Lens of a Farm Girl for almost 4 years now! I recently redesigned some of my earliest images to make into posters, and thought it would be fun (and probably funny) (and maybe slightly painful) to take a look back at how far my designs have come!

Here we go! 🙂

The updated poster! I absolutely love this design & message…it will soon be hanging on my kitchen wall! 🙂

But I knew I could do better, even a few months later! 🙂

This was the first image that went absolutely viral for me!

…And its new look!

This list was designed to show the diversity in jobs in agriculture. It went along with the previous image, also posted January 20, 2012.

…And here’s the new & improved version! I wanted to make this one and the “Ag is the Nation’s Largest Employer” poster look like a cohesive pair.

And my personal favorite (i.e. least favorite)…this dizzying image. Dear self of 2012, “what were you thinking?!” 🙂

I adored this quote though! So, almost 4 years later, it finally gets some justice! 


These posters were inspired by the emails I received from teachers, wanting my work in their classrooms. Since then, I’ve received emails of them going in businesses, farm shops, offices and homes! It just makes my heart happy to offer some of my best design work, with an inspiring message, at a price everyone can afford!
