Recently I participated in Spoonflower’s, Spoonchallenge; a drawing challenge that took place in the month of August with daily prompts. Through daily sketching I learned a lot and I hope to continue drawing more. After the challenge I scanned and colored some of my favorite sketches.
I’ve been so busy with freelance projects lately that I’ve barely had time to do anything fun. Although, I did make time to design some bold and eye-catching Save the Date cards for the 10th Annual Roots and Rhythm Music Festival. These pocket sized takeaways use vibrant colors to grab the viewer’s attention with subtle patterned accents to add interest.
The past few months I’ve been busy working on designing promotional material for a super awesome non-profit music festival, Roots and Rhythm. This year marked the 9th year for the annual festival. I joined the planning committee last fall and volunteered my skills to create simple eye-catching designs on everything from billboards to t-shirts.
I’ve been amid a whirlwind of projects lately. Here’s one I’m especially excited about! I utilized some illustrations from my Woodland Wonders collection to create these adorable baby shower invitations. Originally I designed the illustration in an aqua color scheme, but when I found out the couple was having a girl I opted for a more feminine pallet. Below is the invitation sent to guests as well as a thank you postcard to be sent after the event. The elements of the my previously created pattern collection worked together along with fanciful typography to create these charming designs.
