Home Sweet Home

The last couple months sure have been a whirlwind.  Besides being in my 2nd trimester, we recently moved the home/studio.  It’s been a long time coming, but we finally found our Home Sweet Home, which includes a great space for our studio!  Just this past weekend we had a housewarming/baby gender reveal party and I wanted to share the fun party favors we sent our guests home with.

How adorable are these antique looking keys that serve as bottle openers?

By the way, we’re having a baby BOY!  🙂

2017 Color of the Year: Greenery

Every year, Pantone selects a color of the year.  This symbolic color selection is a snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.  This year’s Color of the Year is Greenery 15-0343.

Here is how Pantone describes this color:

A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.”

Towards the end of 2016, I created this custom simplewear box set with the request of designing the set based on a little turtle.  Little did I know, my color choice would be so on point with 2017’s color trend.

Trade Show Promotional Giveaway Label Design

As a promotional piece, All American Containers filled one of their amber glass bottles with Aromatherapy Lavender Essential Oils, as a giveaway to booth visitors at a recent trade show. Here is the label I designed for them.  Inspired by a modern spa like feel we were still able to incorporate the triangle from their logo into the design.

birthing natural parents

Alongside Mind’s Eye Design Studio, I recently finished and launched a new site for Birthing Natural Parents. The proud owner of this new business and website is Yvonne Toussaint. Through her new website, Yvonne offers support and information regarding her natural approach to pregnancy, parenting, birthing and breastfeeding.  Take a stroll onto BirthingNaturalParents.com to learn more about Yvonne and what she has to offer.

Promotional flyers were also created using the same look and feel of the website.  A long horizontal size flyer, 9″ x 4″, was a perfect match to the main header image and stands out next to your typical 6″ x 4″ size flyer.
