My new business cards arrived today. As a minimalist, I have taken this approach to designing them with simple, fun objects. Kites are beautiful things, a balloon floating away and a wishing star caught and tied with a bow.
May love set you free
Here is my latest illustration to congratulate friends at their wedding in New York. Two bunnies floating away together on a giant heart balloon. Oh and of course a wishing star landed on the bunnies foot..
Bristol is great for printing and producing design work of all kinds. I work with a local printer just off vibrant Gloucester Rd , which has been printing since the 1830’s. They are a family- run business that still print for one of Bristols oldest theatres The Old Vic 🙂
It was interesting to see today, behind the scenes at the printing studios, where my work is digitally printed.
Introducing my collection
Today I have been reviewing all my new designs back from the printers. There are 21 altogether and there are micro collections within the range. Each character I’ve designed has its own special colour palette and matching envelopes.
It is just wonderful to feel the quality of the real paper and see the real product away from the screen.
The alcove of shelves couldn’t fit all my books stacked together, but I thought it made a cool display unit for my greetings cards! I’ve showcased some of the designs already. When I move flat, I’m sure I will miss this new discovery. 🙂
