In the Limelight

Hey Audrey!

Didn't you just love the 1950's? I was delighted when I was asked to design this poster advertising a ballet performance in a 1950's style. I loved researching the exact colour schemes and typefaces. The typeface used for Limelight is a favourite of mine: 'Ed Script', a face designed by famous American type designer Ed Benguiat and House Industries. The photo used is by Warren Williams Photography.

Opposites attract

Hey Audrey!

I know a lovely couple, he is an accountant, and she is an art and music therapist. Actually they both used to be musicians, but that is not the point. I designed an identity for both of their businesses. His logo is about the precise business of ticking and turning, her flowing note logo was placed on four business card variations, and apparently even the process of picking one can be therapeutic! The only thing I insisted the two identities have in common was to be printed on environmentally sound paper. I also helped lovely Diane with her website, and used the site Weebly to do it, I was very impressed by how easy it was to use their templates (except that I couldn't control paragraph lengths) and with their good customer service. Well done over there in the USA! In the end I'm happy that they're happy.

My mom made more...

Hey Audrey!

As you know, my mother has a thing for sewing handbags, but only for people she really really likes. These three handbags she made for a a friends and her two daughters, she has never met them, but they feed me and my cat regularly, therefore she likes them. She tried a new pattern for the green and brown one, she says it was really difficult to make those three-dimensional side pockets. Personally I like the denim sling bag most because she used embroidered strips from my favourite skirt when I was small on it.
