Wedding Invitations

Hello, 

So in my last blog post I mentioned that I'd been designing some Save the Dates for a client. Well this post is about the wedding Invite itself. I absolutely love these invites and I think they sum up the clients perfectly. The brief was to design something sparkly and elegant. The bride sent over a few ideas of the sort of thing she liked and we pretty much went from there. First of all I came up with some CADs and sent these over, We went back and forth a few times to make some changes. These were the final designs selected...

Happy New Year

A lot of change has happened in 2015 for me, I found it a hard year as I'm not that great dealing with a lot of change, but I got through it and I've realised a lot about myself. I now know that if I really want something, I will get it as I have found a determination within myself. I was so unhappy at the start of the year due to my job, which is why I went freelance. I just couldn't handle the way I felt, so change was needed. Which lead me onto creating my own work, which I loved. My happiness instantly grew back. Then laster in this year I started a new job as an experienced creative designer, and I feel so much happier in this job. I feel like I belong more. So I've come to realise that change is good for me. I need it. Im thankful that I've realised this.

Playing about with new tech...

Howdy, 

So the last 2 days I've been sorting out/tidying up my studio. It was in much need of attention!! It's still not quite finished but it will do for now, well until I can be bothered starting it again. Ha!

So today I've opened up one of my christmas presents, which is an Intuos Pro tablet. My bamboo tablet is about 6 years old and when I started my new job I was introduced to the Intuos Pro. I really wanted one of my own so today I've cracked it open and got playing with it. I don't feel that I'm very good at doing characters but as I had some time today I wanted to try a Santa, hopefully the more I practise the better I will get. It's as they say, practise makes perfect (I hope in this case it does!).

So here is my creation...

A little catch up...

Hi all,  

So lately I've been a pretty busy bee. I've not been able to work on my own branded designs as I've had a brief to design some wedding stationery for a client. This is taking up a lot of my time as I want to get it just right. Hopefully I will be able to show you the outcome of this in November or December time.

Nautical Design Products

As it is a Children's trend I wanted the characters to be fun and quite simple so that they could be used over a wide range of products. Coordinating fabrics should be bold and clean, which is why I have used patterns such as diagonal stripes, chevrons and gingham.
