Have I ever told you all how lucky I am? I really think I may have the best clients in the whole entire world. Not only do they have great visions for the projects we embark on; they also allow me to explore my creative freedom to find the best possible solution for them.
Cyndy of the Creativity Exchange is one of those amazing clients. We have worked together for a couple of years now doing everything from a blog design, to collateral, to a blog redesign. She constantly brings new and innovative ideas to the table, and always encourages my creativity and unique vision. I don’t think I can say enough how thankful I am to work
for with her.
We (with lots of wonderful help and support from Tony of Evenpar Solutions) launched her new blog look last night. Cyndy really wanted to simplify the overall look of her site. She wanted something that was modern but still had a “hands-on” feel to it. I love the way the site turned out and especially love the photo header for each of the blog’s sections. Cyndy’s blog is a fun one to read. She always has great crafts, delicious recipes and home decorating tips. Plus her Tree Cones are AMAZING!!! Make sure you check it out!
A few weeks ago Cyndy asked if she could do a feature on Chena Design. Of course, I immediately said yes!!! She posted the feature today. It is kind beyond words, and I am so grateful for everything she said about my little company and my design work. In exchange for the feature, I provided a new and exclusive set of Christmas printables for her readers. If you are in need of some holiday gift tags, please download these on her site! I hope you enjoy.
The couple got married in the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower, an architectural beauty in downtown Chicago. From the beginning of our design process, they envisioned the building playing into their wedding paper. The structural and unique lines became the main visual element in every piece of the suite (along with all the day-of design). The overall look was modern, but by using more traditional typography we added in a classic touch. In the end, the letterpress printing, cotton paper, and attention to detail combined with the architectural theme helped build joyous anticipation for Alison and Tony’s big day. Enjoy!

I am very excited to introduce the new look and feel of Stylish Patina (an awesome blog about painted furniture, vintage finds, decorating and more). Tony, of Evenpar Solutions, and I first designed Kelly’s page a little over a year ago, but she was ready to update and simplify. I was thrilled to work on her new site, and am extremely happy at the way it turned out. We are still working on a few new buttons and such, but the site is about 90% done. The new look is pretty different from the original design. This site is clean, streamlined and modern with a bit of vintage flare. In my opinion, it is a perfect visual representation of Kelly and all her work.
And, for those of you in the DC area, Kelly’s monthly barn sale is this weekend! I wish I lived closer because the stuff for sale is ADORABLE!!!
…are big and bright. Deep in the Heart of Texas!
I have been in Texas for the last few days and it has made me a little nostalgic for home. Over the weekend, I visited my brother in San Marcos and then attended a wedding for Reid’s cousin in Austin. It was a jam-packed weekend filled with good food and lots of quality family time.
In honor of my “Heart of Texas” trip, I thought I would share a few pieces of Texas typography today. I hope you enjoy!
