I’m absolutely thrilled to share with you this special project of mine. Hello! Prints is an online stationery shop filled with beautiful and unique stationery designs. It desperately needed a brand refresh and I had a blast redesigning the site and rebranding it. You can see it in its entirety right here. For now, the designs are avaialable for purchase in Poland and Europe only but I plan to open an online store here, in the U.S. Every visit and purchase means so much to us – please take a peek!
Each year I plan to have my Christmas cards designed and printed early. And then life happens and they are always sent late. I am a graphic designer and design should be easy, yet it is always so much work. I usually have a hard time settling on the right design (let’s not even mention picking photos) and then, well the addressing of all those envelopes takes forever too. This year the biggest challenge was not designing but taking the photos of our little ones. We finally brought them home a day before Thanksgiving and life has been a whirlwind since. Due to their fragile conditions and our crazy and unpredictable schedule, we were unable to have a photographer to come to our house to take our family pictures. I was left with the job of capturing our precious babies. And it was a challenge. Babies tend to fuss and stretch out and don’t like being confined. After taking hundreds of photos we finally chose one that had both of them looking into the camera.
This year’s card was extra special because it was also Jakob and Izzy’s birth announcement! Originally I wanted to send out two separate cards, but there is no way I could have made that happen. This year our card will double as a Christmas card and baby announcement. And I am totally ok with that. Why not to celebrate the season as well as our bundles of joy. I am so happy with the way those cards turned out! Merry Christmas!
