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!
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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!
