It was such a pleasure to work with Amanda of Paper + Nest on this branding refresh. Amanda already had a great start with her nest element but wanted more help with her typography and layout specifically. This was a fun card to design for letterpress because all these amazing elements would look so awesome letterpress printed.
When working with this, I wanted to explore some typefaces that were softer as the main stationery she is looking to rep are wedding, personal and baby. I thought that with her modern look we needed to try some soft options as well as typefaces that were light in weight. In all of these layouts, I wanted to be consistent with the natural elements of the nest and to do so we adapted it from its straight lines to a more roughed up and organic look.
I can’t wait to see where Amanda goes with these cards and who she picks up for representation in her trunk shows. Amanda, will you rep me? You’ve been so fun to work with, I can’t wait to blog about the finished letterpress printed piece!
