Lately I've been asked by my parents to do some odd jobs for them. From my dad I was asked to design him a header for his in the works / sort of started vintage Christmas ornament blog. This is the kind of project I love to do! It's retro sorta UPA style work, I tried to mimic the simple colour scheme and stylings of old school wrapping papers and Christmas cards that both my dad and I love. I can't get enough of the simple shading they would do using strictly black and white. As well as the limited colour pallettes the designers would use. Its pure simple design, but its super effective. The other thing I've been asked to do has been some different advertising materials for my parents business. They are wedding and event decorators and their business was in need of a bit of an overhaul. So I chose a new colour for the front of our new location, designed some new business cards, started them a blog, and created the new advertisement for the Wedding Book from our area. Check out the blog www.specialeventsandflowers.blogspot.com to see some of the stuff I was talking about and some of the work my parents as well as myself and my sister do. I love it when my life becomes diverse like this! My areas of interest are so vast so its fun to change gears every now and then.
