Pam & David Invitations

March 12, 2011

You may remember, Pam & David loved their labels so much that they commissioned me to design their invitations! Here’s what we have so far:

I also did a version with teal leaves as Pam had mentioned teal may be a theme, but she decided to go with green. The other version also has a more polished calligraphic font, but I’m hoping we’ll go with this font! Pam wanted a rustic feel to match the location. Names and location have obviously been changed. 😉


Label News!

March 2, 2011

Exciting label news! I ended up sending this label to Pam and David:

That one was my favorite, and others I asked agreed. They loved it! And now they want to commission me to design wedding invitations for them with a similar theme, but with marionberries! Needless to say, I am extremely flattered and excited.

Also, when we get these labels printed, I will be posting photos of them on the jam!

Learning WordPress

February 25, 2011

The time has come again for a change. I want to move off Blogger and fully integrate my blog into my portfolio. Unfortunately, it seems the only real way to do that is to learn to create WordPress themes.

This is a whole new ballgame for me. I know limited HTML and CSS through working with DreamWeaver. But the biggest problem is I’m still stuck in the table era. A professional designer once commented that he was surprised I used tables, as most people my age never did. Well, that’s because I started designing websites when I was about 12, when tables were all the rage! At some point I did learn about divs, but to me those were boxes you floated inside the tables so you could have scrolling content. So trying to think outside of tables is a challenge. Personally, I’m still not so sure what’s so wrong with them. Anyone care to enlighten me?

Anyway, I’m using this tutorial. It’s very basic; a little too basic since I do have an understanding of code. But since I know nothing about WordPress, it’s great.

Here is what my new layout will eventually look like.

None of those text options really did it for me, especially at print size. More options…

Pam & David Labels

February 23, 2011

My Uncle and future Aunt are getting married! She asked me to design some jam labels to go on the favors. She wanted heart-shaped strawberries, and I ran with it.

Here are a few variations in text. I have yet to hear her thoughts!

KC Logos

Here’s the latest: KC logo design!

It went through many concepts. I incorporated hearts and circles, two of KC’s signatures.
