French Style Wedding Set

This is an invitation I designed for a traditional French inspired wedding.  The strip across the middle of the invitation is a separate paper band that holds the RSVP, menu card and map together at the back of the main invitation card.  This is a very rich colour palette and would tie in nicely with an autumnal flower selection.

Wedding Chocolate Box

Continuing on the wedding theme... I created this colour palette.  I love the tonal blue hues combined with the bright yellow and blue/black.  This would be a very impactful, bold wedding stationary set.

The first piece I have created in this look is a seed box that would be distributed to friends and family as a reminder for the date of the wedding.  The box would contain seeds of the couples favourite flower.  The idea is to send these boxes out a year before the wedding so the seeds can be planted and the blooms enjoyed during the run up to the couple's big day.

The tag line for this stationary set is 100% love, 100% commitment.  This is a bold comment and the stationary needs to reflect this.

Circular Wedding Stationary

I created this Save the Date card and want to work further on the rest of the pieces of wedding stationary for this set.  It is really simple and eye-catching and a limited number of colours in the palette make it really sophisitcated.

I imagine this to be printed on a textured uncoated heavy-weight board.

Business Card

I was pulling colour palettes together and came up with this rich palette.  I thought this would make lovely eye-catching business cards.  These would be especially nice if they were printed in a variety of colour ways, making a statement stationary piece for your office.

Ideas Bulb

This would look great on the front of a notebook.  It is my ideas bulb to keep the design ideas flowing!

Sketchy Style Text

I wanted to process the idea I created in the sketchy handbag designs a little further by exploring the look and feel of hand drawn type within this format.  I love the sharpness of the black on white and the uneven edges of the type.  With the addition of the CMYK circles it has a really graphic feel to it.

Sketchy Style Handbags

This is the first in a series of fashion icons I want to draw in this style.  I am really liking the look of these sketches when they are reduced in size and the colours are kept simple.  It almost has a letterpress feel to it.  Above is a notelet that I designed using the sketch, I imagine this printed on a textured uncoated board to give a hand printed, letterpress style.

Below is a more colourful version of the sketch.  I wanted to produce this as a notebook with different sketches of fashion icons on each page.

I Love... London

This is the first in a series of designs I want to do based on major cities around the world.  This is for everyone who holds a fondness for London in their hearts.

Pattern 1

This was a cute little pattern inspired by a beautiful skirt I saw on my travels.  It has been formated into this cute little blank notelet card.


Mmm... lovely cupcakes, all in a row, it makes me want to eat them all.  This design translates well into a birthday card, or would even look great as a giftwrap.


This design started out as a greetings card/notelet design, but I think I am going to develop it into a wedding stationary set.  I think this would be nice with a baby blue colour palette instead of the pink

Narrow Text Invitation

This is a concept for a 40th birthday invitation.  I imagined this invite to be printed on a smooth uncoated board, and to be very minimalist.  All the information is contained on the front of the card so there is no need for additional pages.  A sophisticated style that could be reinterpreted for almost any occasion. 

A Fresh Start

Hello, I have been really excited to get this project going and the more I think about it the more I change things, so I'm just going to start it. I am still going to upkeep the fashion blog as I love this and fashion inspires me so much in everything I do.

The blog template needs some work, and I need a new logo... but this will all come with time. hey, Rome wasn't built in a day. I just need to get myself out there and broadcast what I love to do.

So... here I am, once again a designer, doing what I truly love.

I hope you enjoy what I post, and please add your comments.
