Super excited to share this with you! I’ve been asked lately how my process works when I’m in illustrator creating a design. Often I have ideas that are a very rough sketch in my sketchbook and then I take to the computer to hash it out and explore my options. Below is a design I submitted (vote to the left if you like it) to Minted for their Take Note! Women’s Stationery Design Challenge.

This is a take off of striped typography. I was going for something elegant and minimalist with a twist (or a stripe). Being a printer at hear it was hard to tell myself that the end result would be for offset printing, as it would look SO cool letterpress printed. If you click on the image you can zoom in to see the detail of the name and the stripes making up the calligraphy form.
