Warm Wedding Wishes…

18 Jul

For The Future Garcias! Lainey, the bride-to-be had seen wedding invitations I’ve designed previously and asked if I’d be interested in working on her save the dates and wedding invites. Of course, I said yes! Invites are one of my favorite pieces to design. Here are a couple of the designs I presented to the happy couple (information has been change to ensure privacy).

Which design do you prefer?

Setting my workspace ABLOOM!

14 Jul

Adding color to a beige workspace (better word for cubicle) was my mission for the past few weeks. So far, I’ve added family pics and Paco pics (my pup), but I wanted to really make it pop. Thankfully, T.J Maxx had a couple of awesome pieces of glassware for $4.99 each. Also, Garden Ridge is sadly going out of business, but they had everything in the store on sale for 25% off. I’ve always loved their artificial flower plethora. Fake flowers that are badly made are no good, too cheesy looking. I also ran across a sweetly fantastic book with not only great illustrations, but also great typography, Live Now, artful messages of hope, happiness & healing. So here’s the line up…to a cozy cubicle 🙂

Special gift for my Dadda

21 Jun

Yes, that’s what I can my Dad. My Dadda is known for telling my family he doesn’t want anything for his birthday or holidays. I’ve always felt these special days call for a special gift. I just can’t let the day pass without doing something nice for him. Since I knew he’d appreciate my frugalness, I went with a picture frame I had around the house and designed a quote for the picture area. I thought this appropriately showed my gratitude for all he does for our family. What quote would you have used for your Dad?

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy. They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

Get it at The Station…

31 Mar

A kick-butt video genius, friend of mine, Eric Peck and his partner in video, Kevin Labrecque asked for some logo design assistance for their new business venture, The Station. I love the concept, which is an old school gas station, early auto feel. After receiving a few mood photos, I sent my first concepts Kevin and Eric’s way.

After a few color changes and additions, the final logo emerged. Let me know what you think and if you are looking for awesome video creation, give them a call.

top 8 – sites that made my week!

Inspiralist


1. I’m always looking for inspiring websites and the Inspiralist is like a triple chocolate fudge iced cake! Described as directory of creative sources, I love the visuals, but hope the site can expand very quickly. Bonus: Inspirations are sorted by design elements, resources, color, type, etc.

National Geographic's Daily Dozen


2. Who doesn’t love National Geographic? The Daily Dozen a is selection of twelve photos published monthly in their magazine. Grab a little world perspective.

Blackbird Pie


3. Twitter Media developed Blackbird Pie, a professional way to capture specific tweets for blog posts or websites. Please note you’ll need a tweet url, not the whole Twitter account for an isolated screen shot. You’ll be given the html code once you bake it.

Chris Brogan Social Media Etiquette
