Dani & Sean

As always, this summer I was insanely busy creating some unique wedding invitations. And because I am so busy working on them, I have less time to devote to photographing and posting them. Turns out, sometimes wedding photographers do that. This wedding was shot by Amelia Lyon and I think the event looks so lovely!

One of my favorite parts about my work is that I get to collaborate with clients and event designers to create the perfect mailable communications for each event. And to tell the truth, in the past couple of years, Sillapere Events has become one of my very favorites to work with. Nicole is so artistic and caring about the tiniest details, plus they are super GREEN! everything I do for them is always Recycled, Tree Free or Sustainable.

I think they all turned out whimsical yet elegant…. This was one of my very favorite wedding invitations all year. For Sure!

When Sheila Nicholls asked me to do the artwork for her new release, I was more than happy. She provided the photos and pretty much gave me free reign from there…. She likes the stitched look (she often sews her own clothes which turn out looking girly but super handmade) and she just needed the artwork fast.sheilacover

Fortunately we have similar aesthetics so getting a design down fast was not too difficult. She came over with her sweet baby girl, Millie, and watched as I compiled all the pieces in a few hours. I really like how it turned out. I used scans of handmade paper and machine stitching to create the look.

I love working with musicians. My dad played and sang and my brother does now (in the band Thomas A Minor & the Picket Line). I wasn’t so blessed with the ability to create music – or maybe I wasn’t blessed with the patience it takes to learn an instrument really well – so I have to resort to doing graphic design for my musician friends. I have done cd covers for Bonnie Prince Billly, Thomas A Minor, and now I can add Sheila Nicholls to the list of clientele. Slowly but surely. I guess I do have patience for something…
