December 2019’s Projects

Wrapping up our year with a retrospective featuring standout projects of 2019

Kirsty and Gery's full wedding stationery was inspired by beloved book series Beatrix Potter. Duplexed invitation, double-sided reply card, rehearsal dinner invitation, wedding details card, program, menu, and escort cards.
On the West coast, we have a vineyard wedding with ranch reception for Brooke & Brian. A tri-fold format, their design elements are on the individual cards allowing the cover to be a simple backdrop. The design center piece is their crest; Nature is an important theme to B&B so we topped their crest with the sun, included two bee's to symbolize the couple and completed the crest with the Grecian symbol from their engagement ring as the focus of their crest design. Lots more imagery to illustrate their vineyard wedding and ranch reception, including a map for guests.
Welcome shock of color! Lindsay & Nick were heavily inspired by Wes Anderson, and I'm always happy to design an homage to the brilliant director. This gate-fold invitation's closed panels offer the titles that introduce L&N's wedding details. Guests open the invitation to a gallery wall of details important to L&N. A separate map was included for out of town guests in contrasting cool blue to the shock of their red invite.
A simple and sweet save the date inspired by Bemelman illustrations for Phoebe and Brendan.
Super cute details from Meg & Rob's designs: Their signature bar menu featuring their dog, Sarge!
and a small extra card for guests to access information via their wedding website.
Maria & David's tri-fold invitation and reply card for their Vizcaya Gardens wedding. Their reply card features their small pup while their cover design reflects the tropical setting for their event. Photos by Gesis Chilling.
Another stunning Vizcaya Museum and Gardens wedding! Delicate tropical floral designs inspired by florist Jenya Flowers. Save the date, invitation, reply card, and menus. Photos by PS Photo Films

Starting the year off with some personal projects. Working with clients pushes me forward and keeps me on my toes. To keep up that momentum, sometimes I need to clear the cobwebs with projects that are unconnected with the expectation of client work to focus on play. Below are a handful of projects I’ve made Read the rest.
