While I still have updating and uploading to do on this site, I can't forget about my awesome clients!
Since the fiance is away at a laser tag bachelor party my day was free to have some fun designing. I did my normal Etsy orders and just finished up with some real fun. I was contacted by an old acquaintance (she was my younger sisters dance teacher, but really that doesn't matter) to put together some typographic art for her to hang in her children's rooms.
I absolutely love typography, hunting for new fonts, changing the kerning, scaling, coloring... everything about it really, so I was really excited to do these for her. When she was pregnant with her oldest daughter she danced to "Happy As the Sun" an apparently very simple song, but one that really meant something to her. Using the described pastel colors from her room I came up with this.
Next up was one for her son. She loves the movie 'The Sandlot' and wanted one of her favorite quotes put together. If you don't know that movie, shame on you, or maybe I just showed my age. (I'm not that old people, in fact I just turned 31 on Friday, but there are days where I feel like yelling at kids to turn down what they apparently call music these days.) She mentioned wanting boyish colors and we think the same way, navy, orange and green! And here's how that one turned out!
Do you have any special words, lyrics, maybe a poem, that you would like me to put together for you? Feel free to email me at EAlexDesigns@gmail.com and we can get started!
While working on my site I went back and forth, blog or no blog? I know a lot of people have found these helpful, but I had to wonder...
Would I actually keep up with it?
Since I couldn't come up with an answer I've decided to press forward. Who knows, perhaps I'll really enjoy this whole blog thing, maybe I'll hate it. But if it can give one of you even the slightest enjoyment, then why not give it a shot? After all my fiance and I are planning our wedding for this October, so perhaps other brides can share in my enjoyment/misery of wedding planning :)
So I guess we shall see how great at blogging I am, but for now, I'm here, I'm developing my site, and I'm hoping to grow even more as a designer.
Blogging isn't a constant thing for me, but hopefully someone will get some use out of the things I say, no matter how far in between.
