Love Typography Competition

Here are my entries for the Tigerprint Love Typography competition. The first is called Love Letters - a play on words! Using the letters from each of the words it spells out LOVE. And it being used for a card/ catch me drift...? The second entry, the letters have been highlighted in white to spell Happy Valentines Day. Thought it would be a nice idea to have the letters highlighted in white on the inside of the card in their same position, (obviously this would depend on the inside colour used in the card) but that it can be seen to say Happy Valentines Day with clarity.

Butterflies Invite

Whilst working on some more card designs for class, this being one of them, I thought about turning it into an invitation. I would hope for this to have matching brown paper gift bags with the butterfly motif on or tied up with ribbon and a butterfly (not a real one) thread through the ribbon as a name tag. May need to work on the arrangement of the butterflies so they appear more scattered...what you think? Each butterfly is filled with the patterns I have created the last few months.

You can...illustrations

It's been a while since my last post. Living in a city that never sleeps, I have discovered neither do I! Overwhelmed by what there is to do, you lie there thinking about all the things you need to do or want to do so you don't miss out. I have come to realise it is absolutely impossible to do it this concrete jungle... A city that offers so much inspiration you are left wide awake with the sights and sounds that fly around your mind - and that is just from stepping out for an hour or so. Where there were days I may not have achieved what I had hoped for the day, I instead wandered and discovered new sights, new sounds, new smells and just enjoyed being apart of it all and living with it. Each day has brought some excitement no matter how small; I have not grown tired of seeing the empire state on my door step, or the smoke from the drains, or walking onto Times square, or the smell of hot dogs & pretzels on the corner... This city has made me feel at home, for that I have fallen in love with it just that little bit more. The dream became a reality, one where expectations had to be let go and where they once were had been replaced with situations and opportunities that went way beyond what I could have imagined. This city has allowed me to discover more about myself, challenge myself and live for myself. I love you New York...thank you, you have allowed me to discover a freedom I never deemed possible.

The above designs are a new style I'm playing around with at the moment...thought they would make nice cards - for Birthdays or just little note cards...
