These images of Sigrid Agren for Elle France are to. die. for. I love all of the colorful fashion going on here – hello spring! And hey, I’d like to be sitting on a beach, too.
I’m a fan of The Civil Wars, as a lot of people are. But when I heard their cover of Billie Jean, I fell in love a little more. Give it a listen, eh??
I wanted to update you all on my business rebranding process so far! Ever since coming to a crossroads and hearing all of your opinions, I’m been extremely motivated to get things off the ground! When I have an idea, I go for it … that’s just how I am. Needless to say, I’m very close to launching everything. Early April it is!
I’ve already rebranded myself, designed ( + coded ) my new portfolio, designed a matching blog, and made business cards. So, I thought I’d share a little peek into what’s going on. The above image is from making my own business cards last night. DIY cards sure are friendly to my wallet! And below that, you’ll see just a few fonts that are being used in my brand. I don’t want to share the finished product just yet, so I thought this would be fun for now!
I’ve got some more eye candy for you guys. I’ve really been enjoying looking into how people design recipes and DIY in online magazines and shops. People are getting really creative out there. This week’s inspiration comes from the 11th issue of Covet Garden online magazine. I highly suggest you go check it out! Don’t forget to hop on over to The Veda House to see what Bre has to show today.
How about these funky + fresh photographs by Laura Allard-Fleischl, huh?? Full of color and fun subject matter that I just cannot get over. It reminds me of the good old days, when I would dress up with friends and go out for photo-shoots. Letting your imagination run wild really is worth it!!
I stumbled upon Rebekah Campbell’s photography the other day and fell in love with her affinity for color + composition. She works in an array of, well, everything. From neutrals to neon pinks, she’s covered it all! They’re all so beautiful – I’d love to live in the world she creates within her lens.
My latest post for Be Free, Lance on Studio Sweet Studio went up yesterday. It’s about one of my FAVORITE parts of the design process … moodboards!! Here’s a little snippet :
“One of the most crucial parts of my process as a freelance designer has always been creating moodboards for my clients. It serves as an important visual communication tool between us and is often what I use as my final stamp of approval before designing even begins. The goal? To make sure everyone is on the same page. Now, moodboards aren’t just about putting images together in a pretty way. It’s actually a larger process that I’ve shaped over time to the needs of myself + my clients. It goes a little something like this :
First things first, I always like to open communication right away with my clients. We talk pretty generally about a project in the beginning. A brief dialogue about design aesthetics and project guidelines are covered in this part so everyone knows what’s expected of each other. Once I have a firm grasp on the project, I take time to develop a questionnaire for my clients to answer via google docs. If you haven’t heard about this, it’s basically an online version of microsoft office. I like to create a document that my client and I can share and fill out as time goes on. It’s a great way to collect important information and archive it for later. Plus, you don’t have to send files back and forth. It’s all automatically saved for everyone! You’re probably thinking to yourself … what’s up with all this google doc talk and why aren’t we talking about moodboards?? Well, I actually use all collected information from clients to develop moodboards, so it’s definitely relavent + important.”
