Hand Lettering

25 Oct 2013 9:30am

As a former architect, I’ve always had a passion for hand drawing and lettering. It’s a place to really just “get lost” in the lines of the overall picture. I recently signed up for a Skillshare class on hand lettering by designer and letterer Mary Kate McDevitt. I’ve always been an admirer of her work, and so when I saw she would be having an online class, I signed up immediately! It is only in the beginning phase, but feel free to see how the project “homework” is going thus far!

Signing up for the class was really just to reinforce the work I have already been doing for customized hand scripted baby names and for various email marketing campaigns. I also have a very fun new up-coming project to debut involving hand lettering, and it is something that each and every one of my clients can have the opportunity to take part in very soon! More coming soon on that… so stay tuned…

Keeping in the Norwegian state of mind from my previous post, this set of custom birthday invitations feature a prehistoric dino and a not-so-prehistoric lion… tying together a three year olds love for all things in the realm of dinosaurs… and being born in the sign of Leo! (Text is in Norwegian).

Avalon – Catalina Island Skyline

7 Oct 2013 9:00am

Pretty much the entire time I was working on the custom commissioned city skyline drawing of Avalon, Catalina Island, California… I listened to that song popular 80’s song “Avalon” by Roxy Music. Don’t laugh… (even though I am listening to it again while I write this!) In any case, I believe the city skyline of Avalon is at it’s finest in this new stationery set in the shop… making sure to take into account some certain locale important to the client… the Catalina Country Club, Casino, and harbor view of course.

Knoxville – New York City Wedding

4 Oct 2013 9:30am

When I was contacted to create custom wedding signage with a Knoxville, Tennessee + New York City skyline theme, I was excited to see how I could pair the two for a Navy Blue themed, elegant wedding. First on the list were the reception dinner 5×7″ table tents. Working with the mother-of-the-bride, we chose to align the city skylines on top and bottom, with the table number between the two… drawing all together with a double Navy Blue border.

Following the table tent design was the large 8 x10″ folded tent signage for the Guest Check-In…

… and the bar station signage… to include the Groom’s name… “Devin’s Hydration Station”!

Along side the bar station signage, we did a Signature Drink print to display the bride and grooms choice drink, and what was in it.

Texas Cities Table Cards

28 Sep 2013 9:00am

It’s true, one of the states that I have drawn the most city skylines in is my home state of Texas. So I was not too surprised when I was contacted to create a set of wedding reception table cards for a Texas wedding. Using all of the current city skylines drawn (10!), plus some additional generic city skylines to represent some smaller towns, we constructed these from a heavyweight bright white smooth stock, with the bright white textured printed table cards mounted to both front and back of the cards for easy viewing within the card prop at the wedding.

New Apartment Moving Announcement

25 Sep 2013 9:00am

This moving announcement was a fun endeavor, as the clients weren’t moving to a new city… or even to a new building. They were only moving to a new apartment just next door to their current address. Using my already existing Dallas city skyline, we decided to greatly exaggerate the apartment building in which they currently lived, and to have an illustration of their car leaving, and returning.

To add a cute little touch to it, I wrote the following poem:
“We’ve moved!
… in the same building and in the same city…

But to a new unit with a view just as pretty!”

Welcome to Boston Labels

22 Sep 2013 9:00am

These custom “Welcome to Boston” labels were a larger size than my typical mini envelope labels. These were designed to be affixed to the front of larger paper welcome bags filed with goodies that would await guests upon their arrival to the wedding venue hotel. The hand scripted greeting and Boston city skyline were both in a deep Navy blue on a natural off white toned label.

Austin Graduation Congratulations Card

19 Sep 2013 9:00am

It is always fun when I am contacted to create a follow up card to match a previously designed card for another client. In this case, I was contacted by an aunt to create a custom “Congratulations Graduate” card to match the same style of the previously sent Graduation Invitations she had received from her niece. Imagine that surprise when opening the card!
