Custom brand artwork? Yes, please! 🎨Handmade sketches lend a personal feel to your brand with one-of-a-kind elements that are uniquely yours. Illustrations offer so much opportunity for personality: the content speaks to your brand story, and the style of each element can be tailored to complement the rest of your brand. This particular brand (coming soon!) is filled to the brim with custom illustrations... I can't wait for you to see! What about you? What would you include in your brand illustrations? 💫
Typographic monograms forever have my heart. I can't wait for you to see the full brand behind this one! @ducastelphotography was inspired by vintage wine bottle labels and old European type layouts. With that inspiration in mind, we crafted a fresh brand identity that speaks to Old World influences and elegant typography. Coming to the blog soon!
Today, I challenge you to find a moment of presence for yourself. You're a busy entrepreneur. I get that. It feels like every minute in your day is packed with responsibilities, deadlines, and never-ending to-do lists. But you're not SO busy that you can't take a few minutes to delight in a cup of tea on your patio, or write a page in your journal, or soak up some sunshine. You're not SO busy that you can't afford to hold onto a longer hug, or to savor a sweeter kiss... to look into their eyes and say I love you and really mean it. When did our to-do lists start to mentally outrank moments like these? Worrying about future tasks won't push them any closer to the finish line. Anxiety only detracts from our richest memories as they unfold. Let's re-order our to-do lists and place the truly important stuff right at the top: Picnic blankets and fresh air that tastes of sunshine and summertime. That bittersweet twinge of lingering nostalgia over bygone childhood memories. The aroma of homemade bread, kneaded with loving hands and the tradition of three generations. Laughter until you can't stop the tears from streaming down your face. Or maybe giving yourself space to feel real pain and process grief, if that's what you need. Quiet moments holding hands, allowing yourselves to just be—to savor togetherness and companionship without overcomplication. A glass of wine just after the sun sets and the fireflies start to glow. Find a moment to be truly present today. To set aside your anxieties... to quiet your mind's continuous hum. To be fully present, to be filled with gratitude. Let yourself feel wholly alive. I promise, you can find time for that. Happy Friday! 💫
I'm so honored to be featured today on @greylikes! This was truly an exceptional vendor team: @allentsai and @keestone_events outdid themselves with this summer romance editorial at a European-inspired farmhouse / cottage. This suite includes the prettiest little details: a loose floral pattern and a pheasant motif, both inspired by vintage European china patterns... alongside dusty rose hues and a lilting calligraphic script. Take a peek at the full gallery over on my blog!
