2015 was a very busy year – mainly because I was chasing a toddler around daily but also because I started designing again on a part-time basis 2-3 nights a week. I had a great mixture of corporate work, branding projects and stationery to keep me up all hours. From a stationery point of view I had some lovely bespoke projects, of which I’ve pulled together a few favourites below.



Clare and Peter wanted a relaxed and informal feel to their design and knew they were after white writing reversed out of a charcoal colour with a sketch… “We are getting married beside my hometown harbour so would like to have an informal sketch of a lighthouse”… so the brief was very straightforward, but a lot of fun to create. The bride-to-be provided me with a photo of the actual lighthouse which I created the sketch from. The result is clean and modern with a whimsical feel to the typography.



Tom and Alina wanted something with a washed out colour feel and delicate use of lily of the valley combined with Russian doll inspired elements. On their tables they had little Russian doll favours with one of the dolls being Scottish (Tom is Scottish – obviously!) so I also created a little icon of Russian dolls which added a nice sense of fun to the invitation and gave us a fun device to use across other stationery elements.





“THANK YOU again for the brilliant, brilliant invitations. Not only do we love them, but everyone who has received them does too!”


Laura wanted the idea behind her wedding to be that her son would invite the guests, so she wanted a fun, playful childlike invitation – quite a different brief! It was good fun and the client was delighted –

“I LOVE IT! It is exactly what I had in mind thank youuuu!”


Another couple wanted a fun crossword created for their guests – and Ellie and Stuart, below, made up a quiz to see how well their guests really knew them. A full write up of their stationery is over on this blog post.









I really enjoyed working with Suvi and Ant on their design – again, a very clear brief with the blue colour of the Finnish flag (Suvi’s nationality), coupled with a graphic icon of their matching infinity symbol tattoos which they had designed especially for them – a very personal touch! I particularly enjoyed designing their ‘Story’ (below) which was printed onto a foam board and displayed at the reception.




STILL the lavender suite has been the most popular reselling design, 2 years on from when I first designed it for Al & Bex. It has been adapted many a time to suit different budgets, tastes and formats and I’ve added some more print options to the range with coloured spines on a beautiful thick card stock – a really nice touch. I look forward to many more adaptations and will promote some fresh font options for 2016 soon. Pricing info can be found here.
