Prints charming

The sugar grenade print design collection is expanding and I wanted to give you a cheeky peek at what I’ve been working on.

Leave me a comment if you have a favourite quote you’d like to see used.

Logo design

I’ve had an influx of logo design work this week and thought I’d show you a little bit of the process I go through when I’m creating.

I work with a brief. You tell me what ideas you have, what colours, theme, style, shape, character you want your logo to have. Do you want your name to be in it or do you want it to be an icon/symbol? The better I know your company, the better I can come up with an image you’ll be happy with.

The project below for NJO was to take their original logo and give it a youthful flare. The purpose of the design was to have it printed on tshirts that people, especially younger people, would want to wear.

I took elements from the original logo – square with a squiggle – and put together some ideas in different colours.

The client picked their 3 favourites and I worked on them. Then they presented them to their younger clients to vote on and the winning design was picked and printed.

Family motto

My friend Lauren gives me some of the most fun, creative projects. Whether it’s a themed invitation for a church function, baby shower invitation, birth announcement or personalised family mottoes for each room in her house I’m on it!

I loved creating the family values posters she has displayed framed in her living room and on magnet boards in her boys rooms. Each print using the colour scheme for the room it’s in…

If you’d like something similar using your family name and values, let me know!

In other news I’ve ordered my first batch of goodies to list in my etsy and will start working on templates for this years holiday cards soon! Things are getting exciting around here!
