This week I got to work with talented illustrator and designer Ray Yuen on a bilingual invitation he designed. I like how the ‘double happiness’ character is raised in the middle of that block of blue color, very cool. Thanks Ray! :)
I’m taking a few days off this week to go on a little road trip, but wanted to post these cards I printed this week for Parachutes.org. Parachutes is Etsy founder Rob Kalin’s new non-profit, aiming to shake up the way people teach and learn. It’s based in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and will be launching publicly in April. I think Rob did an awesome job designing these cards.
Hooray! Another episode of our library series is out, hosted by the delightful Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge. It has been really fun working through this project, and I should be printing my final stage pretty soon. Grace and the gang from the library are coming by tomorrow morning to shoot, so the final episode will be up in the coming weeks. After that we’re going to have a shindig at the library to celebrate and showcase the work. I’ll post details once I have them, and will probably offer the prints for sale in my etsy shop. Thanks for tuning in!
I left work a little early the other day to take some portfolio pictures at home. I’m so excited because I moved in December, from Park Slope to nearby Windsor Terrace, and my new place has beeeaaautifullll afternoon sunlight. I took a bunch of shots for my website, which will be updated soon…I swear.
I had to share these cute notecards because I think they are such a great gift idea. One of my clients, who is getting married this weekend, wanted to give her bridesmaids some nice personal gifts. So she gave me a list of their names and told me a little about each one (one is a chef, one a writer, one a yoga devotee, a dog lover, an artist etc.) and we came up these sweet icons for each. Hats off to her for a great idea!
Its a nice gloomy day here in brooklyn, I heard rain before I even opened my eyes this morning. But we’re listening to Zooey Deschanel in the studio, and I just finished printing this nice gray-blue ink. The new designs are coming along nicely, hopefully this rain will peter out later today.
