Bling Bling – Our 2015 event designs won some awards!

Microbiz Makeover: Lucy the Laborer

I was beyond thrilled and honored when Emily Cohen-Moreira asked me to rebrand her business – Lucy the Laborer. (She was my doula and she was amazing!) I jumped at the chance to work with her in this capacity. Here’s a short interview with her and some pics of the work we did. 

I was really pleasantly surprised (though not shocked) by how much I liked everything you did and how much I felt what I wanted to express through my redesign came through.

1) What were some key factors that made you decide that NOW was the time for a redesign?

I had my previous site and logo for the past few years. It served me pretty well, but was looking pretty dated and kind of crappy at this point. Also, I am now accepting registration for prenatal classes directly through my site, so I wanted it to look appealing and attractive.

2) Why did you choose to work with me?

I have worked with you in the past in a different capacity and generally like the style of the work I have seen of yours. I also felt that, since you experienced working with me before, you would be able to really capture what I am trying to convey with my site and logo.

3) What was your favorite part about working with me?

My favorite part was the design phase. I was really pleasantly surprised (though not shocked) by how much I liked everything you did and how much I felt what I wanted to express through my redesign came through.

4) What could I have done to make your experience working with me better?

I am totally happy with my experience. You were professional, on-time, and collaborative.

5) Any other info you want to share:

Everyone who saw my old site and has been back to the new one has commented on how much they love it. One woman I know who is training as a Childbirth Educator said she went to my beautiful site for inspiration. And I have had many compliments on my marketing materials.

Photoshop Friday – Vintage Bollywood Wedding Save-the-Dates

DandO_beforeandafter

Happy Photoshop Friday! Some projects feel like you were born to work on them. This is one of those projects. When these two love birds came to me to design their wedding save-the-dates I said, “of course, I would love to.” And when they told me they wanted it to look like a vintage Bollywood poster I almost screamed, “YES! WHEN CAN WE START?!”

“…I literally cried when I opened the PDF. It looks unbelievable, you’re unbelievable, and I dont think anything I can write out in words would tell you how AWESOME I think these are — you nailed it… These are beyond what I could have ever dreamed about- we love them!”

To top it off, I received the best, soul-warming feedback ever. This is the kind of thing that keeps you going and creating. I know I’ll look back on this when I’m having a bad day and it will be a good reminder to keep doing what I do:

“I am IN LOVE, LOVE, LOVE with these. I literally cried when I opened the PDF. It looks unbelievable, you’re unbelievable, and I dont think anything I can write out in words would tell you how AWESOME I think these are — you nailed it. I love all of them but I think I might be most drawn to the first one! Thank you, thank you, thank you! These are beyond what I could have ever dreamed about- we love them!!”

Lots of people don’t know this about me, but I am a bit of a retouching nerd. Photoshop was my first love in college and at one point in my career I was a Sr. Digital Artist at an international ad agency. I still love to do retouching and image manipulation, for work and for fun. I know there are a million “Photoshop Fridays” out there, but I’ve started one of my own to showcase this often unseen side of my work and share the magic of image transformation with you.
