Valentines day is a week away! But we got a head start on making these valentines for Milo’s class. I found a template online here; but being the design-nerd I used that as my starting point and created my own. I just cut out the jedi guy and pasted into my own template in Illustrator, then used this font to type out the message. I put four on a 8.x5x11 page, print and cut them out. We found the glowsticks at target in the dollar section. I cut a hole with my x-acto blade to accomodate for the glow stick and use a piece of washi tape on the backside to hold it down. We put these in a little gift bag (also from the dollar section at target) with some fruit snacks and now Milo has a sweet little, homeade valentine to give to all his friends!

A past wedding client of mine had asked me to design a logo for her new business she had started. She has a collection of vintage goods for the home – with her main love and focus being everything travel related – maps, books, souvenirs, and other little kitschy finds. Her site launched a few weeks ago, complete with an online shop. (she lives in australia – that lucky girl!) Rebecca was great to work with, and loved what I created for her. I think it works great for her brand, and I wish her lots of success! looking forward to finding something great in her shop to pick up for myself!
I’m the senior designer at IES Abroad in my day job. One of my biggest project here are these study abroad catalogs. We create alot of them…18 actually! This year I redesigned them completely – even changing the orientation and reworking our brand all together….They look great and I’m extremely proud of them….One in particular is our “redefined catalog.” This is sort of an overview of all of our programs, but also a way to get you excited about us as an organization and about studying abroad. We took a new approach to this catalog and we are super happy with the way it came out.
Well I found out today that it won a MarCom Gold award for design! So I thought it would be a good thing to blog about today.
Since we finally took family photos a few weeks ago, I figured I would get a little ahead of the game and I designed and got my holiday card to print! I can’t show the real thing here b/c that would ruin the surprise for those of you who will be getting one…BUT i will share with you what I did last year! I’m pretty excited about this years card! I’ll show you this years card on christmas…so stay tuned
I saw something like this on etsy and thought about ordering a print for milo’s new room, but then I realized, I could probably make something similar myself….And get it printed at alphagraphics for like $4. So I made one using Illustrator and once his room gets together, might print and frame it for him.
