This is a product that will soon be available in our shop.

The hangers will be available, custom-made for any or all members of the bridal party, and the parents as the bride and groom. Not only is it a lovely way to display the wedding apparel for photos, but it makes a wonderful keepsake. Don’t like the font? The typeface used will be completely customizable.

The letters on these hangers are not painted and are not vinyl adhesives. I came up with a unique transfer method which means that the words are printed on the hangers and then sealed for archival quality finish.

This item and a groom’s hanger can be found here in the Lovely Design Shop.

It’s time to start sharing a little of what I’ve been working on the last little while.

This is an invitation suite that I’m quite thrilled about. It extends the idea of a proposal to wedding guests in a charming and simple banner and bunting-themed invitation. I think that this would be wonderful packaged up in blush and kraft envelopes.

This item can be purchased in the Lovely Design Shop right here.

Wow. 2013 has been quite the year. I’m not complaining, it’s good to shake things up, but it has been a bumpy ride. New province, new job, transition within job, family developments, marriage (new name!), and now I face change again.

All that I can see before me are possibilities. And isn’t it exciting when little things that you’ve done just because you love to do them start to take the shape of something wonderful?

 

From the folks at Method of Action who brought you The Color Game and Kern, here is a game called Shape Type. I found this one to be trickier than the other two, myself, but see what you think. It certainly shows you the delicate subtlety in the beauty of type.

play here.

 

I got 84%. What did you get?

Ikea products never cease to amaze me with their creativity. This isn’t even furniture.

The Stockholm Design Lab design this herring tin for Ikea and took the pull tab (which would normally be a design nuisance) and turned it into a charming focus point of the design. What a lovely way to illustrate the fish contained within the tin.

I thought I’d stop in for a weekend dose of branding inspiration.

Branding is an amazing thing, and so much more than a logo. I get little shivers of delight every time I see an identity like these ones. It’s a bit like being introduced to someone you wish you’d known all your life. All I want to do is spend some time soaking in all the details.

 

A name like Handsome Coffee requires exceptional treatment. Ptarmak (pronounced tar-mack) is responsible for this delightful identity including packaging, mugs shirts and website. I want it all, and I don’t even drink coffee…

Found on Pinterest

 

Glasfurd & Walker put together this expansive identity for The Dirty Apron. I have a thing both for kraft paper and for stamps. This brand uses both, resulting in a feeling of simple honesty. It brings to mind hearty foods and wholesome values of responsible artisans.

Found on the Graphic Exchange

 

A pub is a pub right? Wrong. Liverpool English Pub (in the Ukraine!), based purely on it’s visual identity makes me think that this is one that I will have to visit at a some point. Reynolds and Reyner is a wonderful design company and they put all of their skill and imagination into putting all the pieces of this brand together. (On a personal note, I just love it when tessellations are included in brand identities. They add such texture.)

Found on Art of the Menu

 

 

 

Happy Monday!

I’d like to share an bsolutely charming font that I have just stumbled across: Blanch. It is a quirky, and delightful and comes in six different weights. I cannot wait until I have an opportunity to use it.

It is available at the Lost Type Co-op and was created by Atipus, a graphic communication studio in Barcelona. Here’s what they say:
“This typeface family came about from a search for a traditional font with a contemporary feel which reflected the Blanch products; artisanal recipes, adapted to our modern times.

This is a modular typeface family halfway between a 50s style sans serif and the range of numerical characters which most labelling machines use. These are seemingly contrasting concepts which lend themselves to the creation of an atypical font.”
