GENaustin’s Big Brave

This year, it’s Machu Picchu or bust! One of my main resolutions for 2014 was to be more active in my community and to give back. I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve recently joined forces with the incredible organization, GENaustin, to spearhead their fundraising campaign, the Big Brave.

A brief overview:
GENaustin, the Girls Empowerment Network of Austin, creates programs that support and guide girls to make wise choices as they navigate the unique pressures of adolescence. They provide young girls with a safe space to discuss important issues such as body image, dating relationships, bullying, friendships, academics, parent-daughter communication and goal setting.

About the Big Brave:
The Big Brave aims to inspire girls to find their voices and prove to them that anything is possible! To do this, Big Brave team members will be challenged to accomplish one lifelong goal from their “bucket list”. {yikes!}

As a test of endurance and as a testament to my deep love of travel, my personal Big Brave goal is to hike all 26 miles on the Inca Trail in high heels, ultimately reaching Machu Picchu. I want to show young girls that no matter how long the journey, if you work hard and stick with it, the end result will be all that much sweeter.

If you want to help out a great organization and help me reach my goal of $5,000 then you can donate here. All donations are 100% tax deductible {bonus}, and go completely towards funding GENaustin {mega bonus}.

 

 

 

Congratulations Emerald, You’ve Won!

The official color of 2013 is making its debut. After seeing the bold colors and patterns previewed for the spring in everything from fashion to home goods, it’s certainly no surprise that such a rich hue would become the must-have for the rest of the year. I can’t wait to add some of the fabulous emerald items from this week’s style board to my collection!

For your own emerald inspiration, peruse the wonderful world of pinterest.

Calling all Lobsters!

If you’re looking for a lunch delivery, Pamela Jane’s is the place to call. We had the treat of sampling their famous Maine Lobster Rolls while working with them and we’re now a little obsessed…

Their collateral material was printed on a gorgeous recycled paper from French Paper Co‘s Speckletone Paper collection. And what could be more appropriate than a color called “Madero Beach”?

We developed their brand identity, business cards, leave behind, and website landing page, and couldn’t be happier with how beautifully everything turned out!

 

We Think Tractors are Sexy!

Since 1939 Tex-Con Oil has been serving the Central and South Texas farming communities. Living here in Austin, it is easy to forget what a huge part agriculture plays in our state economy (we rank #2 behind California.) The MOD Studio is proud of the above brochure we designed for Tex-Con Oil, and look forward to working with any and all businesses that do so much for Texas.
