New Work: Baby Shower Sprinkle Invitations

image

Just a few short months ago, a client reached out to me to design a baby shower invitation and matching thank you card for her best friend who was expecting her second child. My client had a very clear vision of a lighthearted and low-key event, and we collaborated together to find the best solution for translating that imagery onto paper. This collaboration resulted in an invitation with playful, modern typography and lots of cheerful polka dots.

I also want to note that I had an absolute blast photographing these as well. I secretly love photography and art direction, and any excuse to make and play with confetti is a good one in my book!  It always feels good to step away from the computer for and do some hands-on design work and art direction too :)

Moodboard: Romantic + Fresh

Wedding Invitation Suite Moodboard

The beginning of the year is always jam-packed with bridal shower and wedding invitation projects, but this year’s collection of projects is especially lovely! While I can’t share all of the details yet, I promise you the designs I’ve got in the works are nothing short of delightful. Let’s just say there’s a lot of very pink projects over here ;)

Since we’re coming up on Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share this romantic and adorable moodboard for some wedding invitations I’m working on (for an incredibly fun and energetic couple!). This just might be my favorite moodboard to date! How cute is that couple in the corner? We’re going for a very fresh + feminine look with a modern twist.

There are few things I love more than passionate clients who share my love for cheerful design and crisp, clean typography. Plus, this couple specifically requested a fun ampersand which is pretty much every designer’s dream! :)

Valentine's Day Card Printable

Valentine's Day Card

I don’t know about you, but I love receiving snail mail. There is something special about getting mail that can really brighten my day in a way that no email can parallel. That’s why I thought I’d create my own little Valentine’s Day cards to send to those I love this February. Admittedly, another reason is that I’m known to buy holiday cards quite early and then lose them by the time I actually need to send them out (oops!). By creating a printable valentine, I know that I can easily print as many as I need whenever I want.

Now through Friday, January 23, you can download a free copy of this folded A6 greeting card (offer ended)! If you happen across this post after January 23, 2015 (or you just like supporting graphic designers and local artists), you can also buy a downloadable copy here!

Enjoy!

Design WORK: Baby Shower Invitations

It’s been a while since I’ve shared any of my design work on here (aside from the Jelly Legs stuff that has consumed my life as late), so I figured I’d share these gems with you! If you follow me on Instagram, you may even recognize these from when I posted this cryptic teaser photo.

I was approached by a friend to create a baby shower invite for her due to the lack of fun, modern options currently available. I immediately knew that this project was going to be one that I could really have some fun with.

Of course, nothing says “PARTY!” like candy and party horns, so I knew I had to set up a photoshoot to capture the mood of these youthful invitations.

Upon completion, she recommended that I sell it on Etsy to provide a great option for people looking for a bold and playful invitation. With her blessing, I made a few other versions and did just that.
