Branding | Rustic Elegance

Rustic Elegance.  Is that an oxymoron?  Maybe.  But not in this Etsy shop!  In this Etsy shop rustic really is elegant, and Tonia really is a gifted artisan.  Tonia is a repeat client (don’t you love those?!) whom I have had the pleasure of working with, first on her oak tree wedding invitation suite, and now on the look for her newly launched business.  Tonia reclaims pieces of wood from furniture, old homes, etc. and turns them into custom frames for your photos or artwork.  In her hands, history frames another story.  In her own words, she finds “wood that may have been part of someone’s fireplace or part of their doorway.  Our memories are cradled by the memories of so many others.”  She needed a logo and an Etsy banner that conveyed that artisan feel with an old timey flare.

She makes coat racks and jewelry holders, too!  Hop on over to Tonia’s shop and place an order today!

Branding | Legacy

I love it when awesome clients bring me awesome clients.  A certain favorite client of mine recommended Design in August for a new branding project.  The folks at Legacy OB/GYN were looking for a new logo.  At first they wanted to explore a fleur de lis sort of symbol, but instead we pursued more abstract shapes.  They wanted a logo that would capture their warm, approachable and careful care of patients.  I love the modern script paired with the clean lines of the sans serif font.  And now the logo sits prominently at the top of Legacy’s new website, adding a lively and organic touch to the clean and simple lines of the site design.

Events | Leap in the City

What happens when a group of top-notch wedding industry vendors get together and throw a party? Well, naturally a spectacular party. Event planners Michelle Soll of Burlap & Brooches and Sara Fried of Fête Nashville approached Design in August to join forces with other area vendors and create an event that would feature downtown Nashville’s newest enclosed all-weather event space. The space itself is not new – Sambuca is a lively restaurant and bar that features live music every night and along with a scrumptious menu. But Sambuca only recently enclosed their Sky Loft, which now makes it a year-round event space with an urban vibe and primo view of downtown Nashville.

Design in August provided the logo and paper designs to coordinate with a pre-set color scheme of candy apple red, citron and charcoal gray. What began as a staged photoshoot to capture the space and vendor talent (by the keen eye of Gregory Byerline), later turned into an industry party open to 150+ guests! The flowers, the linens, the food and fun all came together beautifully.

Leap in the City program and appetizer menu.

Cocktail stir sticks added a fun pop to the apple Leap-tinis. Yum! While place cards and buffet menus dressed up the tablescapes.

And finally, here are the guilty parties, er… vendors that teamed up to make Leap in the City possible. Thanks again to Michelle and Sara for inviting Design in August to participate, and Dana Patel at Sambuca for setting the stage! Hop on over to photog Gregory Byerline’s blog for a fantastic write up featuring even more event and vendor details.

Branding | Nashville Wedding Planners Group

After the ladies at the helm of the Nashville Wedding Planners Group asked me to design the invitation for their inaugural meeting, it was a natural fit for Tiffani and Jennifer to come to Design in August for an official logo design.  We continued the modern twist on vintage look, and pursued a logo design that would be able to rock the top of a blog header.  Another function of the logo was to create an adapted version that would serve as a vendor or “Member” badge for local area event planners to place on their own sites.  In simply adding a tag to the existing logo to create a badge, the Nashville Wedding Planners Group have a strong, unified look that is immediately recognizable. 

As always it was a delight to work with you, gals.  And thank you for the spotlight on our Studio as well!
