This past week has been a rush for my little graphic design life! Last week, I had a session where I taught one of my friends the basics of Photoshop and creative design, which I hadn’t done in a long time! I’ve gotten requests for small, medium, and big jobs, and recently I even got to help one of my friends with a creative development project that might just help make a big dream of hers come true! There really is no better feeling as a creative/designer than knowing that you are using your art to bring life to others!
One of the really small projects I’ve done recently was a memorial card for a client who had just lost their mother. She wanted a simple, elegant card with some a border to pass out to those attending the funeral. She wanted it to be fancy but not distracting. This was the finalized design:
One of the things you should know is that in general, I like to design stuff that pops and is bright, bold, and funky. But knowing your audience is key. The client LOVED the cards and said that they were perfect and completely exceeded her expectations! That definitely brought a giant smile to my face!
I’ll continue posting more design stuff, but in the meantime, here are some designs that inspire me, reflect my own style, and have captured my attention lately:
