Never Break the Chain

Back to blogging because it’s been awhile…a whole year in fact! I always finding myself opting for the visual eye candy Instagram and Pinterest have to offer. But this year I have a goal of sharing projects I’ve worked on in more detail at least once a month. I can hardly believe we’re already through January. I’ve been busy printing Valentine’s Day cards for Lady Hanover Press and doing Graphic Design work for some great folks including my friend Jennifer at Dot & Army.

I love being a graphic designer because there are so many different avenues to be creative.This month I’m sharing this window display I designed for Dot & Army. It’s a perfect explosion of paper perfection! Jennifer has hired me to merchandise her store and help give it an eye-catching style that compliments her high-quality work as well as the goods she showcases in her store. Each month Jennifer and I have worked together to imagine fanciful window displays that have really dressed up the storefront and caught the attention of people passing by.

This month I went with paper because it’s my favorite and I had a vision of paper melting from the walls…the more paper the better! When I started thinking about scale and visual impact I thought of how fun paper chains look and how I could easily make hundreds. Remember arts and crafts growing up? I love the repetitive meditativeness of making the chains. I namastayed home for several days making these. I went ahead and made thousands…yes, thousands. It is shocking how quickly you can use these up…I feel like I could double the amount I’ve already got hanging up for an even wilder display! Can’t stop, won’t stop.

Jennifer is obsessed with cloth napkins, gathering friends and family together and having a great time. Whether it is for everyday use, special occasions, or a themed dinner, her cloth napkins add a pop of color and warmth to every shared meal. If you are local — check out her store asap, if you’re not local you can shop Jennifer’s store here. All this took was paper, 8.5x11 sheets cut into 1-inch strips, and staples. It did also take a lot of time, to be honest I lost track. It took longer than binge watching the following series: Godless and The Halcyon.

Gather around this coming Friday for First Friday in Downtown Brunswick. Stop by Dot & Army to partake in all of this paper and pick up some dandy Valentine's Day gifts. I will be wheeling around town with my mobile card card — find my in Jekyll Square East! Follow my adventures here.

Ashantilly Press Organizing

The first week of the year has been lovely. I've jumped into new Valentine's Day Lady Hanover Press projects and I also spent a day helping to organize the Ashantilly Press printshop. There are new (old) type cabinets to fill and lots of type to clean and sort. This week I completed one drawer of New Caslon 24pt. It took about 6 hours, 3 pairs of gloves, 2 croissants and 1 very large hot chocolate. Very excited that there is a new option available for use now. I haven't put the drawer away yet either, I want to see it looking fancy the next time I walk into the print shop!
