Dedham Goes Pink Logo

This is a fun logo challenge and for a good cause. My client wanted to use the pink theme for the logo and also add in words that have meaning to fighting breast cancer. I wanted to show the client a round and a geometric choices for the logo design. I am also experimenting with adding in the date to some of the logos, my client wanted to see how it all lays together. I think the date works better with the round logos. I will keep you posted on her choices.

I love this site, Pikaland. It has oddles of fun illustrations, artists and ideas. I just love gathering inspiration from many of the artists on featured on their site.

One of favorites featured recently were these sock designs by Ashi Dashi. They are so much fun! I think I will be ordering some kooky, fun socks in the future.

New Member Flyer

The Dedham Junior Woman's Club would love new members. I am a member of this charitable organization and I offered to design this flyer members will put around town. I got the chance to design the logo, many months ago. The club's look is going in a new direction. A more modern, cleaner look. I wanted to keep the flyer simple to be able to attract attention. I put the list of what the club does as a border around the flyer. Another club member suggested it. I think it works

Esty Treasury Talent

My fellow Boston Handmader and friend Danielle of the Merriweather Council puts together wonderful treasuries on Etsy. She has a wonderful sense of style and what is appealing. She did add my photo which is so sweet. Her own shop is lovely. I really enjoy her blog. Her take on having a small business and also her online shop favorites.

Flyer Fun, Dedham Open Studios

We are gearing up for the Dedham Open Studios. It is May 15, 2011. This is my first go on the flyer. My co-chair for this event picked the last design. I think it has a colorful appeal. I had to design this quickly and wanted to make a good impact and attract attention. The graphic and logo are by Derek Aylward.

Blog Banner Fun

One of the fun things about your own blog banner is you get to change it anytime you like. I plan to change my photography banner more often. Give my readers a nice surprise and mix it up a little. Change the font up and photo.

Top: old one Bottom: New One

What do you think about the new banner. I am kind of excited about it.
