A thank you card I made today. Recycled “brown paper bag” exterior with hand cut out lettering (a laser cutter would have been ideal) that reveals the neon interior.
Finally found the copy I kept for myself and photographed it! Double-sided card announcements I made for the birth of my nephew.
I have been making indie mixtapes (or cds rather) for a looong time. [SIDE NOTE: I initially started this blog in '08 to write about indie music] Anyway, this year I decided to make a design project of the effort and “publish” monthly mixes that I send to my followers (a small group of friends and family). The recycled cardboard cases have a magnetic closure and the featured bands listed on the back. The sets also have color-coordinated labels that correspond with the seasons.
My free time in the past two months has been spent working on my sister’s baby shower. Mostly on making the invitations, but also decorations, menu planning, favors, etc. Below are the invitations I designed, along with the silly video that Adam made.
(and the baby? it’s a ridiculous Photoshopped combination of my sister’s and her husband’s facial features)
I finally got around to making myself some more freelance business cards. Now I just have to remember to carry them…
Super-thick 280lb white cover stock edged with bright pink enamel
Business card design that includes the information for all of the members of the studio, but becomes personalized when inserted into the slip cover with windows.
Bauhaus-inspired logo for company Wonder Valley
Coupon made for pet boutique, Healthy Spot, that ran in Whole Foods’ Green Magazine.
Set of 16 books (each containing an interview conducted with a different creative professional) housed in a case made out of lacquered book board. A variety of binding techniques (including Japanese side stitching) were used.
