WHOA. It has been TOO LONG!
The summer really filled up for me with work which is incredible! I realize that as hard as it is to be sitting indoors on my “days off” from my day job working on freelance projects, it is amazing that I have already started my career in graphic design! I am really excited to begin school in September (for graphic design) with some real world experience under my belt!
Let me share with you what I’ve been working on these past weeks!
I was hired to create menus for a rehearsal dinner as well as the reception. I also created place cards, table numbers and a seating chart! I had a lot of fun inventing the design, and seeing the whole project through from sketches to the final prints. Above is an image of the digital file of the final design. Unfortunately I don’t have the printed pieces to photograph at the moment but when I do I will be sure to post them.
The final prints were created at a local print house on beautiful off white linen paper. They looked so elegant!
Once I sent out all my files to print I decided to design my own business cards to send off to my client so she could share my information. Luckily I had some simple floral drawings I had done for a past project that I thought would make a great card to represent what I do!
I scanned my line drawing into Illustrator and added some colour. I had a lot of fun making them, and it was so nice to see them in print.
Last night my sister Alyssa and I hosted a workshop for Etsy Maker Cities in Halifax. If you are in Halifax, check out the schedule! There are so many amazing workshops happening in the city all week long for craftspeople and people who are interested in getting their craft on! There are also seminars for folks who interested in starting their own handmade business! Here’s the LINK!
Lastly, THIS little guy has been consuming ALOT of my attention:
I adopted him on a whim and I am so in love! He likes to hang out in the studio with me while I work, mostly trying to distract me and knock things over but I think he’s a pretty great addition! We have two cats now, Potato and Basil!
That’s it for now! Stay tuned. I’m getting the blog back on track and I will return on Monday for a new featured artist!
