Have you heard about Harrison-Edge Cane Bamboo Fly Rods in Fernie BC? Peter hand crafts each rod and apparently they’re amazing (I don’t fly fish…but maybe I should). He needed a new logo so I took his scribbles and replicated it on my computer. Done and done.
I took some time away from my computer while my children needed their mom but now that they’re a little older I’m finding some time to get work done. Here are some samples of work I’ve been doing, in the graphic design world, in the past year.
Fernie Lantern Festival – marketing material
Fernie Seniors – Logo Design
Burma Road Estates – Logo Design
E-Save-The-Date for some friends – local wedding stationery
Bright Beginnings Community Preschool – website and social media
I’ve started rewriting the story one sentence at a time and then going back to the beginning to see how it can improve. I’m not a writer so I’m going to have someone look at it before I start designing the pages. The layout of the book has also begun in thumbnail form. It’s about 20 pages long but making this children’s book involves much more planning and work than I’m used to. My paintings are spontaneous and my wood projects are barely drawn out.
I’m excited to show Phoenix our book when it’s done. I hope she’ll be proud of it one day.
I’m quite happy with the simple design I put together for my friend’s baby shower. All the designs were for use online – Facebook event page and a couple sent via email. I carried the cracked egg design from the invite to the Baby Pool forms to the gift packaging. It’s one of my favorite things to do – to carry a theme throughout an event.
The shower was planned by Marie-Helen and I and we split the jobs quite easily and happily. We were a good team! She added beautiful touches like the knitted bands for the candle jars, MH made the cupcakes, did the balloon streamers and even organized a Skype date with a friend back in Montreal.
