More custom lettering

I created these small signs for a client who needed to use them at a trade show. I worked on this client's wedding invitations this summer, and now she's sending lots of business my way... gotta love that!
These signs were created using gold ink on a nice matte brown paper. We wanted to use Kraft paper initially, but the gold ink was too light and we needed a darker paper for more contrast. How do you think they turned out?

More wedding decor

I wanted to share more of the decorative items I created for my wedding back in October. One of my favorite custom items were the old window frames that I borrowed from a friend and used to display the seating chart. I also used one frame for a large thank you note to our guests. All the frames were displayed together on the lawn where we had the cocktail hour.
Here are some photos from the wedding...

Custom, hand-lettered logo ideas

A friend asked me to come up with some custom logo design ideas for his software and marketing company. He wanted something soft, artsy, and feminine. We are working on refining the below sketches and he will eventually be able to create business cards, stationary, a website, a whole brand using the final logo. Pretty cool little project, if I do say so myself. (Pardon the terrible lighting... I must get better at taking better photos of my work!)


New work coming soon

I have a couple of calligraphy and hand-lettering projects in the hopper, so new work will be coming soon to this very blog! Stay tuned. And, if I haven't said this already, I will very willingly accept any referrals and project inquiries that come my way.

Here's one of the signs I created for my wedding in October - all the luscious flavors of cupcakes we had. I'm salivating just reading this... (Photo courtesy Rob Garland.)
