Stationery | Hatch Show Print

When my studio line rang and I heard, “Can you design a rehearsal dinner invitation in the style of a Hatch Show print?”  I didn’t miss a beat and said, “Absolutely!”  The lovely Karen Kaforey of Signature Events coordinated all the details for her client while I got in touch with my inner-Nashville gal.  My love for typography (the design and arrangement of letterforms) combined with the opportunity to communicate a message with that typography really gets my creativity flowing.  Combine that with a really great point of inspiration and voilá!  The result: a rehearsal dinner invitation evoking the screen printed feel of an old Nashville standby.  How very Nashville.  How very festive!!

Stationery | Young Program

More ivory + chocolate brown + coral loveliness.  These liturgy programs echo the design of Kylee + Dan’s wedding invitation suite.  Did you know the guys wore brown tuxes and the gals wore coral dresses?  Just perfect for an afternoon wedding in May.  If you’d like more information about stationery or event ephemera design, message me using the Say Hello link above!

Stationery | Young Suite

It’s almost the Big Day!  Kylee + Daniel are celebrating their wedding in just about 24 hours!  And I am pleased as punch to share their invitation suite with you.  This design was a follow up to their Save the Date postcard.  An elegant ivory paper with chocolate brown ink and shades of coral accents, this suite is formal, timeless, and full of fresh personality for a May afternoon event.  Be sure to catch the Inspiration Board for this bit of loveliness if you missed it.  And stay tuned next week to see Kylee + Dan’s coordinating wedding program…  Congrats, you two!!

Stationery | Personal Stationery + Calling Card

A lot of times people hear the word “stationery” and their minds immediately jump to invitations… particularly wedding invitations.  But let’s not forget the loveliness of a personal stationery set and the joy of receiving a hand-written note!  Whether for personal use, or professional use, a custom-designed stationery set and calling card make a beautiful impression.  Paired with a return address rubber stamp, a stationery set would make a lovely gift for the new graduate, for Father’s Day, or for personal use on the job market!

This set included envelopes in both khaki + olive green.  Fun to switch it up!undefinedSimple calling cards with phone numbers and email do the trick!  Love the feel of this textured paper.

Stationery | Nashville Wedding Planners Group

I have found the wedding industry to be an uber-collaborative one.  So it was right on par when Tiffani of Creative Designs & Events first told me her big idea.  Together with Jennifer of Mr. & Mrs. Weddings and Events, these two planner gals are launching Nashville’s first Wedding Planners Group – a focused monthly meeting of local planners to mix and mingle as well as collaborate, share ideas, and meet hand-picked area vendors.  And their first meeting is tonight!!  While Nashville has plenty of similar type groups that gather wedding industry folk across various services, it has been lacking a focused group exclusively for planners.  What a marvelous idea!  And the cherry on top?  Tiffani and Jennifer asked Design in August to dream up their printed invitation.  Violá!  Cool gray, with a pop of yellow and peacock blue set the stage for a lively event, while rounded corners finish off this modern twist on a vintage ad.

A vertical format for this announcement makes a “newsy” statement and reads like a mini-banner.

Pretty, pretty peacock envelopes paired with a collection of stamps in similar color palettes.

And next month yours truly will be attending the NWP Group meeting as the featured vendor of the night.
Looking forward to meeting more of Nashville’s finest!
