Graphic Design: Business Cards

I will keep this one short and sweet! I made a New Year’s Resolution to create new business cards. I need to start promoting my work for the summer decorating season. Here is what I came up with.

My friend Michelle recommended that I do rounded edges, which I may try on the next bunch that I order without the pink border. She knows everything about cute graphic design that there is to know. The fonts that I used are my new favorites. They are called Hammer Keys and Quid Pro Quo.

Save the Date

BIG news…our Save the Date is ready to go!

I gathered inspiration by many designs that I saw on Etsy, but ultimately Ashish and I designed this ourselves. I loved all the great letterpress out there, but it can be really pricey.

Our wedding will have a sincere, vintage, destination type of feel.

Graphic Inspiration

I was a little thrilled when I came across this designer on the front page of Etsy last week. FreyaArt creates these wondrous and colorful prints for the home.

This artwork clearly describes how I like to feel at heart.

Wouldn’t this make sweet decor for a child’s room?

The colors in this one POP! I’ll bet you have a few strange and magnificent creatures in your life!

Hope your week  is off to a vibrant start!

Sophisticated Surfaces

Here are some surface designs to cheer the mundane.

An artist from Britain, Natalie Singh makes graphic prints and develops them into cards for family and friends.

I find this print especially eye-catching and could even picture it as a wallpaper.

Love the background colors and pattern on this one!

A final fave is this curvy retro pattern below.

Leaf swirls

Natalie also has a shop where you can purchase cards and she oozes with original features on design.

Another artist that has caught my eye on several occasions is Jill Bliss with her organic shapes and eco-inspired designs. One of my favorite topics to discuss in an artwork is nature and it’s splendor. Based in Oregon with roots in California, Jill’s work investigates the flora around us here.

These poppies are delicate and  beautiful.

Love the minty fresh card!

Oh, what a mural.

Jill maintains a stunning shop of where you can truly grasp her unique style. I was reminded of Jill’s work on my trip to Kentucky, where I noticed some of her splendid notecards for sale, these cards available here.  At Jill’s shop you can learn more about her inspiration as an artist and look at her portfolio too.

Look forward to catching a glimpse of another artist’s cards tomorrow morning along with Jenna’s desk redo coming soon!
