I think we’ve all been given some sort of gift to share with the world and that can only be done when we’re expressing our true selves. I think we’re all artists in our own right and that we should all be working to bring our unique contribution to our sphere of influence. That being said, I don’t think we were ever meant to attract the attention and approving glances of everyone. We’re most effective when we stop worrying about what others are doing and start focusing on what we love. It’s not about where we're going, it’s about the journey.

I'm an artist pursuing what I love and I hope that in the doing so I can inspire others to do the same.

Runcible Cider

In 2015, Yondr Studio was commissioned by Rob and Kelly McCune to help brand their family farmhouse cidery, Runcible Cider. The name and imagery surrounding the brand were derived from the poem, The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear—a poem near and dear to Rob and Kelly.

The objective was to capture the whimsical and adventurous spirit of Rob and Kelly as reflected in Lear’s poem, while also visually communicating the folklore surrounding the story.

Since 2015, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kelly and Rob on expanding the Runcible visual identity and adding new labels to the mix as new varieties of their cider are released.
