One thing I love about my job is the variety (and, I admit, I love doing most of it myself). I love being in front of the computer, sending emails, making edits for clients, and hopefully finding a few spare minutes to create new designs or products. And then I love heading across the street to a coffee shop to assemble a bunch of envelope liners. I love the days when I’m running around between printers, the mail shop, the fabric store, and back again.
Here’s what was on the assembly table last week.
Here’s a peek of a recent invitation project for a bride getting married in the North Carolina mountains. I painted a custom watercolor envelope liner, and kept the cards simple with 1-color letterpress in grey. The blue envelopes (with beautifully screen printed white addresses!) add a pop of color. More images of this suite to come!
Although I’m spending a good portion of my days chasing Juna, I’ve been working on a few new things in the studio, too. Most fun has been turning my marbled papers and watercolor paintings into some new wedding invitation suites (peeks below). It’s been months since I redesigned my logo and started working on a brand refresh, but last week I finally got the new logo put on the studio door (above). Now to get my packaging and the website updated…
Oh, the days when I used to have all the time in the world. And yet, I can’t complain too much about days like these:
I’m finally putting my marbled papers to use — more to come! I’ve been pulling out the paints for a few other projects, too, like these watercolor wedding programs and menus for Nicole and Michael.
Mary and Jerem’s wedding oozes southern, in the fabulous historical meets modern, casual but insanely charming, sense of the word. We were honored to help with Mary and Jerem’s save the dates and wedding invitations, customizing the Bow Tie design from our collection.
The custom fabric streamer garland helped soften and personalize their venue, and ball jar cocktails reminded wedding guests they were very much in the south.
To top it off, mix and match china!
