At the end of every month I try — often failing — to clean up the massive mess that comes with being a designer. File organization, sorting, and the desperate attempt to create a naming convention to keep it all straight for future use is frustrating to say the least.

So here are sixteen of my favorite creations from 2016, some that are in my portfolio, others that are not, ideas I played with, and even some that were rejected by the client that I can’t help but love.
