Fall 2016


Fall is in full swing! The weather this weekend has been picture perfect in my book. Sunny with enough coolness in the air to warrant a sweater and closed-toed footwear.

We spent Saturday morning at The Strong Museum of Play, a local treasure for kids and families. We had a blast! It was our first time taking Marshall, and there was literally so much to do and see, we didn't have time to make it through everything we wanted to. Which means we'll have to go back again, soon! 

Saturday evening, we went to a couple farms nearby to show Marshall the inside of a "real" tee-pee and take home some pumpkins. It was such a beautiful time of day. If autumn stayed like this for months and months, I'd be pretty happy. But, alas, winter is always trailing close behind. We won't talk about that just yet! 

Today, after church and lunch, while we were still dressed in our "church clothes" we went outside to snap a few family photos. It's definitely a challenge to get Marshall to stay in one spot, stand still and smile! But we got a few great ones. 

Happy Fall, y'all! 






How cute is this little pumpkin?? I can't even take it.

Sohl Design Dot Com





It's official! My professional website, SohlDesign.com, is live and open for business. I offer custom design solutions and art direction for a variety of projects.

The truth is, my site has been up and running for a while, I've just been working on it for so long, and tweaking and re-tweaking everything, that I never made a formal announcement. Plus, as a designer, I find it very intimidating to publish and advertise my own work. I'm probably my own worst critic, but I have such a hard time letting things go until they're "absolutely perfect" in my mind. 

Running my own design business and freelancing has long been a dream of mine. One that I'm so excited to see starting to come true. I would love for you to view my work. With over ten years of experience, I specialize in a variety of print and marketing materials, including, but not limited to:

Packaging (food and non-food)
Logos / Branding
Business Collateral Materials (business cards, pens, brochures, direct mail + more)
Wedding and Event Invitations
Art Direction for Photography 
Food Styling

If you, or someone you know, has a design project coming up, I would be happy to start a conversation and explore working together. Please visit SohlDesign.com for details and to contact me directly via email. 

I look forward to working with you!

Danielle & Trevor's Guestbook & Table Signs


My beautiful cousin, Danielle, and her husband, Trevor, got married this past June. It was a picture perfect day in Geneva, NY, and we got to celebrate with family that we don't see as often as we'd like. 

Aren't they an adorable couple?

Their wedding colors were periwinkle, light purple, pearl and silver. So pretty! 


I was so happy to design their guest book, signs and table numbers. I really like creating those special little details for weddings. 


Danielle's idea for the guestbook, was to make it a calendar "record" of birthdays and anniversaries, that each guest would sign on the appropriate date(s). What a fun and useful keepsake!

Maybe a bride and groom already have invitations picked out, but need additional signs and accents that will complete their big day. I'm always happy to design corresponding pieces that will tie everything together. Favor tags, ceremony programs, table signs, gift boxes - anything you can dream up that needs a special look
