designsgirl has had the pleasure to work with Kelley Lee Gin, owner of the grand Los Angeles event planning firm Picture Perfect Events for several years. It was a privilege to provide calligraphy for Kelley's beautiful company emblem designed by Tiselle.
I saved my money to buy silhouette gouache paintings of my husband and me by a well-known artist and then I realized- 'I am an artist; why don't I create these myself?'
So I did so with the help of Rob Barnes of Foils + Dies Studio in Denver who stamped them in metallic gold. Unfortunately, I learned to smooth the outline edges after I printed them but they are swell just the same.
"Typology" is one of the wedding invitation designs I created exclusively for Bella Figura.
As designers, we design many pieces for each suite - coasters, postage stamps, save the date announcements, envelopes, response cards, direction cards, and program covers like this "Typology" custom cover.
My husband and I are part of a swell gourmet club made up of wonderful people who love food and wine and who love to share their impassioned knowledge with others.
designsgirl created logos to say thank you to the founders for including us rookie foodies in the club as we enjoyed beef short ribs slow roasted in an ancho chili sauce served over grits; roasted duck, pea and chutney samosas, butternut squash salad with pears and stilton cheese; butternut squash risotto; olive oil pumpkin bread; and homemade raspberry cheesecake at our recent fall party.
A year's worth of dream assignments awaits designsgirl as she begins her role as a lifestyle contributor for REstyleSOURCE.
This fabulous online design center has put a beautiful new face on the "typical" city guide as it connects buyers with the most fabulous design sources and shops across the country, encouraging the practice of shopping "local".
One of designsgirl's first submissions this fall will be a DIY project with Transfer Artist Paper (TAP)- an 8th wonder of the paper goods world and whose discovery I attribute to my funky mixed media artist mother.
designsgirl's "Cascade" wedding invitation design is one of my favorites because the petals were created during an enjoyable session in my studio when I was just experimenting and drawing without any ideas in mind.
