Stationery Update – Documenting


Greetings! I realize it has been almost two years since my last post – far too long! Time for an overhaul. I spent the last two days documenting some of my work… looks like I have to get out the camera again to retake a few shots after reviewing them. Here is a small preview. Most of these were done at work, so quite a difference from my personal designs. Mostly very simple, vector art with a couple colors. I also like to print my concept work on very textured paper to complement the art, unlike the flat card stocks here. Shimmer paper is also very popular with brides – it works sometimes but the paper soaks up the ink and really fades the print!

Okay here is one not done at work – because this was for my wedding! Our third anniversary is coming up and I have never posted this online! I was pretty early in my stationery career, so there are things I wish I could change now. Overall the personality is in keeping with the venue (built before 1920 for one of the Ringling Brothers), the time of year (“fall” in Florida?), and of course the artsy bride (sorry the groom had no say!). Maybe one day soon I will revisit this and give it the treatment it deserves! (Too bad I can’t say that for the actual wedding day!)

Musical Map



Another illustrated map for a bat mitzvah. This time it will be printed as part of the invitation, which is design to be like a music book.


Holiday Designs



This first is just an illustrator design…

And here is the holiday card I sent out this year. I started with several pencil sketches, then brought it into photoshop to what you see below. From there I moved the deer to illustrator to fine tune the lines. Since my paper cutting machine couldn’t handle the fine details, I hand cut each deer from paper to make a layered card. Eventually I will get photos of the finished product. I varied the paper colors a bit, but primarily used the gold, silver cream and kraft paper.

And the inside sentiment…
