Frazzled.

My mind is feeling a bit frazzled right now. Saturday night, 10pm. I’ve been watching TV (well House, Pirates of the Caribbean 4 and Fast Five actually) most of the day while I double-sided taped, assembled and trimmed part of a wedding invitation design with the help of Carly. Got one part of it all done. Tomorrow I just need to finish the rest of it, which should take ALL day and night I think. I should probably stop taking on jobs that involve so much manual labour right? :P

 

So that pretty much sums up my weekend. Hope you’re all having a good one!

 

 

  1. Stream-of-consciousness script lettering by Adam R Garcia, which was lazer cut into painted particle board. Looks amazing! Adam has a heap of other fantastic projects on his website, The Pressure. Check them out.

  3. Jordan’s (aka Oh Happy Day) awesome DIY record sleeve bunting and DIY vintage record cake plates is right up my alley at the moment because of a certain project I’m working on. Perfect for a music / record themed event!

  5. I recently discovered the work of husband and wife duo, This Paper Ship. They have such a gorgeous illustrative style going on. I’m particularly keen on their recent logo designs. Definitely bookmarking their blog so I can keep up with their lovely work.

  7. These DIY laser cut pop-up wedding invitations are amazing! Christine and Ian did a fantastic job designing them to give their guests a sneak peak into their wedding amongst the trees! I cannot wait to do some kind of paper cutting, just gotta wait for the right project to come along.

  9. This alphabet design by Francisco Gigena is quite nice. I love a good type design. It was originally designed for a competition, which didn’t win, but I think it would make for a great poster print!

  11. You all know how obsessed I am with letterpress right? I saw these split fountain letterpress business cards for Graphic Exchange‘s Fabien Barral and  I was impressed right away. That technique of mixing colours and getting a gradient is very cool! The colour combinations Fabien chose look so good together!

    Ahhh I love coming to your blog because it always offers “NEW” things instead of stuff that I’ve already seen. Loving those pop up wedding invites!!! And Francisco’s type is AMAZING. Holy cow.

    I hope you assembled all of those invites in a timely manner! I can’t wait to see them :)
