Entries in design (22)
a random image search about hand-painted signs in Mexico (there are such amazing signs all over the country) led me to these beautiful vintage cigarette labels. I love the typography and illustrated elements (they have a bit of an unrefined/folk art element to them).
I began designing show posters after I moved to Orlando and met Nathan (for his band and a few venues in the area). I fell in love with it and it became one of the first ways that I really began experimenting with combining my illustrations with graphic design. Jay Ryan was (and still his) a huge inspiration.. I'm mesmerized at how he can make a screen printed poster look so detailed.. and having that freshly sketched look. ..not to mention his amazing hand drawn type.
And... seeing that screen printed wedding poster (2nd in on the bottom row) was the first time I realized wedding invitations could be awesome. So, thank you Jay.

I've long been a fan of Peter Buchanan-Smith's simple yet sophisticated & nostalgic designs. I even subscribed to Paper Mag while he was creative director because I loved what he was doing with the magazine (that Kelly Osborne cover is my favorite). So lovely and always a reminder that less is more...

Have a happy friday & lovely weekend! I'll be posting more consistently next week and will also have a new DIY project for Once Wed coming up.
Above is a radical vintage postcard that Nathan and I picked up at an antique store during our trip.
Custom thank you cards for Ashley & Grant made to match their invitation set. The couple is in town visiting family so it was lovely to finally meet Ashley this morning when she came to the studio to pick these up.
