I’m really excited to show you the moodboards I’ve been working on with one of my sweet clients. While I absolutely love wall mounted inspiration boards, creating them digitally is so much easier and faster. I create digital mood boards for most projects. All my branding, collateral or wedding stationery project always, always start with a mood board. I love them. They help me define the visual direction of a brand, sort through my ideas and show clients my creative vision. They act as a guideline and they help with brand consistency.
A mood board is a combination of imagery, typography, colors and textures that define the style of the project and serve as a reference point. It is a tool for creatives and clients that conveys a design idea, moods, feelings and direction that are hard to communicate. For me, the mood boards are incredible tools in my work with clients. They help me think big and guide me along the way. Check them out.
How fun! Ban.do, the makers of très adorable headbands also make these super cute shoe clips. What a fun way to punch up a pair of shoes: flats, heels, sneakers, oxfords… even boots! They add just the perfect amount of sparkle I love that you can clip them on any pair of shoes. You can shop shoe clips here.
The summer is finally here. I am home, sitting on the front porch and soaking in the sun. The best thing about it is that I’m having this summer off! The whole summer! No long hours at work, no stress, no extra projects to work on. This summer I’ll be actually enjoying LIFE and will spend it with my family. The children are having a blast already and we are looking forward to spend every day outside. I’m planning to have our days filled with trips to the beach, parks, playdates and evening barbecques with friends. I am so looking forward to it! Happy first day
Today, our family is being featured over on the great blog Let the Kids Dress Themselves – an inspiration blog that loves authentic family and lifestyle photography. Lovely and talented Buffy Dekmar, an Atlanta photographer visiting Seattle for the weekend, somehow managed to capture our busy family and the fun we had chasing seagulls, blowing bubbles, running around and just being us. We absolutely love the pictures and hope you’ll enjoy looking at them too. Please visit Letthekids.com to see the feature.
Few months ago, I completed this fun save the date and invitation for West Coast Paper Company. I kept the save the date fun, bright and full of color. I am the most excited about the gold foil on red paper, which was also embossed. I had fun blingin this one out a bit – foil is my latest obsession and I’ll be sure to print foil again.
