Graphic Design for Frances Baker

This is pretty exciting for me, as it's the first job of this kind that I've done outside of design school. As most of you know, I've been working with Josie on many little things, but this is probably one of my favourite jobs to date....it could be a case of too much coffee and the excitement of several courier deliveries. Sad, right?

Josie was asked by Etsy if she would like to contribute to their stall for the Finders Keepers market, which, might I say is a hugely exciting opportunity, I'm so excited for her! We decided to bite the bullet and produce some business cards as well as some little postcards to promote her store and blog. Our house  kind of feels like a little creative studio, Josie sewing away, me designing little bits and pieces, talking to printers and our beautiful photographer friend Hannah. It's been pretty surreal, though I fear I might have let school take the back-burner a little too much. OOPS! Oh well, real world jobs people! AND a totally amazing opportunity to work with some of my favourite people doing something I am totally in love with. Love love love. Yep. I said I was excited. That's no lie.

Here's a little peek at what we've done!

Happy Friday

I have been rather busy of late with school and various little design projects. I thought I would just make a small post. A lot has been happening:
The Frances Baker collection I worked on with Josie has been released into the big wide world. So far it's been really well received! You can see Josie's post, and see the photos (taken by the wonderful Hannah Kelly) here
The collection is up on etsy and bigcartel too.
Here are a few pictures from the lookbook with the fabrics I worked on for Josie.

Oh, and here is something I saw floating around in my "photos to blog" folder. Late last year I purchased a small wooden doll by Eveline Tarunadjaja After going to her exhibition at No Vacancy, I fell in love with this little doll. I can't remember if I posted about it or not? I also particularly love the flower in this photo (I nabbed it from someones garden, it was just so pretty)
