I took a few minutes to work on a simple Christmas card design for our family–with a focus on showing off the babes, of course. Now let’s see if I actually work up the ambition to get them sent out before the holiday!
I’ve had inquiries about custom work from a couple of my best customers since I had Gwen, and I thought I should make a shop announcement: I’m not currently taking custom orders. Between family and work, my free time is limited, and I’m currently focused on WordPress theme design and development and getting my fat butt into some semblance of shape.
So I apologize, particularly to my regulars–ya’ll are awesome and I very much appreciate your continued support over the last few years. I’ll make another announcement when I’m accepting custom orders again.
Taking a quick break from holiday promos to show off a recent custom banner for Boy Meets Cake, tales from a blogger on a quest to create the perfect cupcake. This was a particularly fun order because the client was totally willing to let me have fun with it and take a playful approach. Even better, he was thrilled with the results–and I am, too!
Caroline (who has a fantastic name, not that I’m biased) was one of my first custom design clients and is still a joy to work with. Recently she needed a simple business card created using the logo I designed for her a while ago. It was her idea to add the detail work in the back to help the card pop a little, and I think it came out beautifully!
A returning customer of mine is marketing a new product, and they asked if I would help with the logo design. I can hardly take credit for anything other than the mechanics of this one, as they came to me with several proposed ideas, all sketched out, and described in great detail how they wanted it to look. We tried a couple minor variations on this theme but eventually they settled on the original concept. Although I do enjoy brainstorming with my clients to get just the right look, and it’s certainly fun to be creative, sometimes it’s refreshing when someone else has already done the research and considered the concepts beforehand, and all I have to do is draw the idea into being!
A client requested a fairy-tale, storybook-esque theme for her new business, selling high-end childrens’ bedding and toys. I believe the final project went in a different direction, but the result turned out pretty cute anyway!
