Below are some wedding proofs we worked on early this summer for a bride getting married in Montana. While this isn’t where it ended up in the end – the first round explored a western/Victorian theme with imagery and typography. The overprinting would have been so cool on the 4×9 with the sunburst, but alas I can’t wait to show you the finished piece! Until tomorrow….

I’m a total sucker for some wailing banjo music, and even more so when they lyrics are A M A Z I N G! As I’m sure you’ve noticed a theme going on with the letterpress Valentine’s Collection 2011 – here is yet another set of cards inspired by my love for music. Calligraphy was done by the fabulous Grace Edmands Calligraphy and then incorporated into design for 2 really pretty Valentine’s Day Cards. Grace, thanks for collaborating on such a fun project – you really made these rock! Let Love Grow (above) inspired by Mumford & Sons Winter Winds: Love, it will not betray you, dismay or enslave you, it will set you free… Here is Mumford & Sons live with Sigh No More (inspired above) – you have to listen to the song change about half-way though and then go …

We debuted Jones & Vandermeer’s RI last week and after feedback from the client here is RII and RIII. Jones & Vandermeer is a boutique luxury fiber company producing specialty mink yarn and other exotic goods gathered from around the world. As the brand developed we wanted to incorporate some imagery that reflected target market, as well as material without having to be too specific so the company could continue to grow with extended offerings. click on the images to see them larger in scale. I’m SO excited with how these are turning out – what do you think? ………………………………….………………………………….

Option 1: This design is more concept based, emphasizing the circles in the typography as well as the knocked-out ampersand between Jones & Vandermeer. We wanted a subtle hint of the circular motion of a ball of yarn rolling around but also wanted it to relate to a global shape symbolizing process and the travels invested in procuring this yarn. The typography has been manipulated so that the the balls in the letters have more motion and don’t feel so static but still providing a strong sophisticated brand that is not too crafty looking. Option 2: This design is a mix of the casual stylistic watercolors that we were inspired by on the Hermes website (per the client’s suggestion). We wanted something that spoke to the handmade generation and yet still felt high end and regal. The typography was set and then …

I just love working with photographers! Each time I think I can’t do one more logo for a photographer, I get so inspired by the client brief, and each project turns out so unique. I think the reason it is so fun to brand photographers is that they all have a different eye in how they capture an image. While many shoot the same subject matter, it’s how they capture it that defines their look and why people hire them. I feel it is such fun to work with photographers because they respect creative license, and have an eye for beauty. They also utilize their branding as an extension of their work and themselves. Stephanie is no exception to being a fun client to work with. I have really enjoyed developing her brand and here are RI proofs for you to peruse! …

These euro business cards shipped in the summer and I just realized I never blogged about them! Printed as a 2/1 business card on 220# Lettra paper with pantone matches, this was a great project to collaborate on with one of my employees, Makayla who helped with the design on these. This was a great job on press because although there is the heavy flood on the front with reversed type, we also had the pink pattern in the background to help with extra ink on the press and good coverage. Larger print areas can be tricky on press but the lighter coral pink worked well because there wasn’t as much contrast with the paper creating a good print (sometimes darker colors can get paper show-through that is more prominent).
