Super excited to share with ya’ll the wedding invites & other bits and pieces I designed for one of my dearest friends (10 years and counting!!! #inseparable #chatting24/7) A media comms specialist turned patisserie chef, Wendy is one of the most humble and interesting hoomans you’d ever meet – she makes everyone around her happy! Inspired by Bali (where the bride and groom are both from) – the invites feature wood grains & tropical plants, with a contemporary & minimal aesthetic that encapsulates them both.

Watercolour plants illustrations for the envelope inserts, rose gold foiling and wood grains debossed into the invite – such a tactile treat!


Bit obsessed with monsteras at the moment – these will be swing tags for her bombonieres!

Am so grateful for the creative freedom in designing the wedding invitations – she is one chilled bride. This was one of the funnest projects I’ve ever worked on – I’m so happy for you kids! Can’t wait to be reunited – counting down to the big day : )

 

 What’s more fun than designing invites, sourcing cool props and setting it all up for a kickass kids party? When you get to do it with your bestie!

Back in May one of my dearest friends hired me to be her nephew’s party planner! The party was to be horse themed (as Seb the birthday boy loves his ‘neigh neighs’), so we decided to book a travelling petting zoo. After months of planning and anticipation, here are the highlights from the day!

A little while back I had the pleasure of working with a very talented family portrait photographer to brand Mi Familia Studio.

As a mobile photography studio, Mi Familia Studio captures families with a fashion editorial aesthetic, featuring their beautiful homes as a backdrop for the shoot. The proposed branding is contemporary & approachable, whilst embracing the happiness and warmth that reflects the nature of family portraits.

The design brief was to incorporating a pink & gold foil colour palette, as well as any elements of nature.

feather-like leaf motifs – lighthearted and fun – reminisce of pillow fights and playing in the garden

Instead of trying to encapsulate everything in one tagline, I’ve used simple phrases that describes the complex relationship of families, adding back the human touch to the brand.

A modern seal with the abbreviated “MFS” for Mi Familia Studio.

Similar to family seals, which are unique and represents genealogies, heritage & traditions. Mi Familia Studio is in itself – a large family, filled with countless memories and stories of clients. This can be carried across as a wax seal for packaging.
