Things I'm doing

How I’m spending my time

Podcast

Every week Nina and I sit behind some microphones and chat about the everyday challenges that are just part of life in a blended family, told from the perspectives of a musician and an artist. You can find the podcast on all major podcast services. New episodes release every Wednesday at 10AM Central!

Music

I joined a new band in the fall of 2020, where I serve as lead guitarist. We are currently in the process of writing and arranging a slate of primariliy instrumental, experimental rock music. I expect I’ll have more to share about this very soon…

things I created

Here are some of my recent projects.

Dawson White

Violist / Teacher / Mentor / Entrepreneur

In the Fall of 2020 I was contracted by Dawson White to do a full rebrand and new website for him and his teaching studio. We worked together extensively, really defining the authentic message that Dawson wanted to communicate.

Pivot Party

A Podcast About Embracing Change

Over the summer, I launched a podcast with my wife Nina! New episodes release every Wednesday morning at 10AM Central. Being who we are, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to build the show a visual identity of its own. Inspired by old trail signs felt right for a show focused on resilience and forging new paths.

Houston Viola Society

HVS seeks to create a community among the professional, amateur and student violists in the Greater Houston area and Southeast Texas.

In the summer of 2020 I worked with the wonderful folks at the Houston Viola Society on a full rebrand. It was a great opportunity to work with a wonderful local organization and build something to help them in their mission. I worked directly with their Board of Directors to choose colors, typography, design a logo, and develop a true brand voice that is all on display on their redesigned website.

Nina Bledsoe Knight

violist, violinist, teacher, performer, storyteller

Our first real project together was, unsurprisingly, a complete overhaul of Nina’s personal brand and teaching studio. This included logos, color palette, new website, and brand voice development. The most important aspect in all of this was to capture the truth of Nina’s personality, which comes through in her performance and teaching, and really drive home her core values. The ultimate goal was to give visitors of her website the feeling that they have met her.

Other Projects

Since 2019, I’ve worked with organizations, groups, bands, podcasts, and anyone else looking to elevate their brand.
