I recently teamed up with Viridian Design Studio in planning a party for Hadliegh and Isaac Lankford, the two children of Jennifer from Portraits By Jenn. Aside from wanting to spoil two of our favorite toddlers, we really wanted to showcase the many, many possibilities a client has with their digital files. Stickers can be used on favors, candy, as napkin rings, and so much more. Once the initial design is created for the invitation, developing a coordinating banner or sign, gift tags, thank you cards, or food and drink labels is a breeze! It’s very affordable for me to make as many add-ons as possible for you to have an event full of personal touches without going bankrupt. Here are the printable files I designed for the Lankford Party:
And I couldn’t be more pleased with how beautifully these projects printed out! We had the party pool-side at Comanche Trace on a perfect, sunny evening. Viridian Design, with their fun and creative event-planning team, used my Suess printables to put together an adorable, bright, and fun but also clean and polished party. This event is one both the parents and their children will never forget! Jennifer took some beautiful pictures of the scene, and I’m thrilled to share them with you now!
A new counseling firm contacted me about creating a logo. It was a joy to collaborate with these clients, and we’re already starting on another project! I love all parts of design, but there’s something special about partnering with a new business as we create that icon which becomes a part of their identity. It is so important when making a logo to balance the things that portray the owner’s personality or the company’s atmosphere with elements that make it a well-functioning piece of design.
Many times, people do not want to incorporate a graphic in their logo, because the word “graphic” automatically makes people think of clip art. But something as simple as a sequence of geometric shapes or a strategically placed border around your font gives a reader’s eye a place to rest in a sea of font; this engages the customer and draws him/her into noticing your sign or card or advertisement. Think of the Coke logo. If you see a generic can with a swirl on it, you automatically think “Coke” rather than “Soda.” You remember the design, and the company’s name is attached to that visual memory. The same can be done for your company or organization in a clean and polished, professional manner or with whimsy and flair, but both designs require thought and attention that I am eager to provide my customers.
The Logo Factory provides a great article on logo design and things to consider during development. It really is such a creative but at the same time very methodical process! Call me a nerd, but I LOVE that combination of work!
Typically, in logo design, I will make 7-10 proofs for a client to choose from. With this project I created several more images as I practiced tips from the above article. This project really was more “fun” than “work.”
On that note, here’s another little something fun for YOU! My very dear friend Becky is a Stella and Dot stylist. If you haven’t checked out their jewelry line, you are missing out! This past weekend Jennifer and I hosted a trunk show. It was a great time, and for the next two weeks, we’re continuing our little party online. I’m still trying to decide between these three gems:
Anyone is invited to join us! Simple log on to Becky’s personal website: http://www.stelladot.com/beckywiginton; enter the hostess name Merydwen/Jennifer and then shop away! Not only will you get some cute, affordable accessories, but you will also receive a FREE download! When you place your order, leave a comment or email me and I will send you the following bi-fold with the option of your choice.
Pick either the Thank You card or the monogrammed version to download and print for your personal use. When you visit the Stella and Dot website, you might see where my inspiration came from! ;) ALSO, if you order $200 or more, you will receive a $75 gift certificate from Portraits by Jenn… Isn’t it GREAT to be rewarded for shopping!! If only that happened more often!
Whew! Summer has been off to a GREAT start! But working from home with two active boys is really challenging me in time management! I have been soooo neglectful of the blog!
Even with my super-social kiddos, I’ve still been busy desiging company logos, wedding and baby shower invitations, moving announcements, birth announcements, a summer wedding program, and birthday parties galore: Super Heroes, Cute Critters, Beach Party, Garden Fairy, Dr. Seuss, and Rock Star! I can’t wait to share my newest works with you, and photos from how creative moms used my custom printables to make their events delightfully memorable! Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come!
These kids are so much fun! They needed cards that would match their super cool personalities! I think we came up with some funky, edgy Valentine cards that really rocked!
How about this creative gift! After printing the photo card, use an Exacto knife or a razor blade to cut a small (1/4″) slit above and below your child’s hand. Slide a lollipop into the card, and your kid is “holding” a sweet treat for his/her Valentine friends! What a fun and easy gift for a class party!
You don’t have to be a professional to treat your kids to some super cute, super quick Valentines! These mommy-friends of mine emailed me their pictures, and we dropped them into my new templates I designed.. It’s only $5 to use one of these cards.
Print as 4×6 photos at your local 1-hour photo lab and your kids will be the talk of their classmates’ Valentines Day Party. It’s not too late to create one of your own!
