Site Update!

Things have slowly been evolving around here, with a new logo, new project photos and updates, new profile pictures, small updates to my site design. Special thanks to my girl Kayla Adams for helping me update my photos! And to Aaron Wade for always updating the dev of my site.

I decided it was time for a new logo. I’ve had the same logo since day one. I made small changes as time went on, but I felt I wanted something completely new. I’ve been really into lettering that’s raw, energetic, and loose. I felt it was time to move on from my signature cursive because that’s no longer my personal style. The more work we make the more our own personal styles come out, and I think it’s a good thing, because it shows that we’re growing and evolving.




Tomorrow (Tuesday) marks the opening of my new shop! I’ve been giving glimpses into my process and some of the artwork that will be for sale on Instagram. Take a peek: #EBDshop

With this launch, I’ll only be selling originals, I plan on doing prints (and other fun goodies) in the future, so for now, snag one before they’re gone! And, to whoever makes the first purchase, I may throw in an extra treat! Don’t miss out!

And! Make sure to follow along on Instagram (@evablack_), there may be a giveaway happening this week too!

The launch is happening tomorrow, Tuesday at 10 AM PST. See you then!


Merry Merry

Christmas is just around the corner! As a little gift to you, I’m sharing a free desktop + phone wallpaper download! This year has been very quite around here, but I’m so thankful for everything that has happened over the past year. Less work + time for blogging then previous years, but being a Mom has been SO amazing. But, that hasn’t stopped me from making time for creating!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas + New Years! I’m so grateful to each and every one of you. Now go download* the wallpapers + get in the Holiday mood!

Mabel’s Birth Announcement

Here’s a look at Mabel’s birth announcement! It took me a while to get these out so they doubled as ‘Thank-You’s’ on the backside. I can’t believe these photos where taken when she was just 2 weeks old! Time has FLOWN by. They were shot by the amazing Kayla Adams. I’m so thankful that she took these for us, they’re perfect. This photo in particular worked so perfectly with what I had in mind for the announcement.


Recent Work: Alexandra Behr

As we get closer and closer to baby girls arrival, I’m trying to wrap up all active projects and one of these projects included a Logo + Branding project for Alexandra Behr Photography. Alexandra is a portrait photographer based in Peru. She specializes in newborn, family, children, and maternity. Alexandra views each of her projects as works of art, so she wanted her logo to reflect a piece of art as well. We chose to do hand lettering, something that is unique and detailed to her. We also created some watercolor patterns to use throughout her branding + print materials.


Recent Work: Lauren Wells Events

Here’s a peek at a recently wrapped up project for Lauren Wells Events! Lauren came to me wanting a website for her event design business, as well as a little brand update. We took her already established logo and spruced it up by changing the colors a bit and adding a couple arrows. From there I designed a site that reflected Lauren’s work with lots of special details. One being the various hand drawn elements throughout the site, Lauren loved this idea because it reflected her own work process.
