My mom (Sandy Walker of In Awe Weddings) trusted me enough to re-design her logo and marketing materials. She wanted it to look more clean, modern, and less feminine.
I couldn’t help but add some chevron.
This is the front of her business card. Fun, eh?
Her new blog/website headers. SO FUN.
She says she really likes it, and at first I was afraid it was because she’s my mom. BUT then I remembered that she is pretty particular (hence why she is a detail-oriented Wedding Planner).
I posted a few of these ideas from my phone (the top pic is from my phone) but thank you to Jennifer Bowen for these professional images. The bride and groom live in New York City, so the escort cards directed guests to their tables, which were named after Lindsay & Brian’s favorite NYC destinations. At each seat, the place cards said “Eat” in a specific color (depending on what their dinner selection was). The Drink Sign told the background information behind their signature drink, and the program was wrapped in a “Be Married” band. I am hoping to post a picture of her invitation soon!
My friend Kate has a very successful blog, The Shopping Mama, which informs readers about the best products for kids. I took this from her “About” page:
The Shopping Mama has grown to “[O]ne of the more successful online ‘mommy blogs’ that review new children’s products and swap ideas with other young mothers across the country.” (Financial Times, May 2010)
Kate commissioned me to create custom baby announcements for their newest bundle of joy, Max. She recently created a post featuring the announcement, which made me feel pretty special!
Please check out her blog for informative, fun, and valuable information. It is a well-written blog with multiple writers and reviewers. It will save you time when shopping for your children because Shopping Mama has already done the research!
I’ve had the pleasure of creating quite a few baby shower invitations recently. Here are a few of my favorite designs. Some of these were placed in a pocket, but I will hopefully have photos of them in the near future. I will post the electronic designs for now.
Colleen and Brad were married at the Desert Botanical Garden in March. Colleen shares my love of paper products, so we had a lot of fun designing her invites, programs, escort cards, etc. They were definitely modern and fun, but they were very clean and elegant at the same time. We had a circle theme throughout… even the menus were round! The programs had a circle die cut in the front with their monogram showing through.
The day was flawlessly coordinated thanks to Sandy of In Awe Weddings. I was able to see the finished product since I assisted with the wedding that day! Thanks to Cristi Owen for sharing her amazing photographs. She did a great job and was really fun to work with!
