M. Frances Foster

Designer, maker and denim enthusiast
based in the middle of the map.

Here I share various visual exercises,
new works, scrapshots of places and things; evidences of life and living
in St. Louis, U.S.A.

A complicated, romantic thing involving
paper scraps, stringed instruments
and phases of the moon

We work in the dark. 
We do what we can.
We give what we have.
Our doubt is our passion.
Our passion is our task.
The rest is the madness of art.


Henry James

*recent work -- identity + print: Miller Tree Care

A few months ago I had the pleasure of designing a logo, business card, promotional shelf card and microsite for arborist Virginia Miller of Miller Tree Care, out of Southeast Iowa. I got to help a bit with the writing on this one—which doesn't happen often—and am proudly claiming the 'proudly planting' line as my own (it's the little things). I also designed a couple custom rubber stamps—something I try and sneak in for every client I work with. This time we did a general stamp as well as a return address stamp.

It's taken me awhile to get pictures of finished work shot and portfolio ready, especially now with a six month old never not in my arms.☺ Despite my lack of posting here (does anybody even blog anymore, is it an instagram world nowadays?), I've been real busy and have been making some exciting progress on a handful of projects I'm eager to share more about as well as a brand new website I'm about ready to fly with. And maybe some more pictures of that baby, too.
