We had a lovely day at Leamington Pump Rooms for the Vintage Chic Wedding Fair last Sunday. It was a beautiful venue, full of fab suppliers with a love of the glamorous looks of times gone by. Our letterpress stationery was particularly popular with the vintage-loving brides attracted to the authentic look and feel of old-fashioned printed stationery. But our other ranges went down a treat too. Here are some of the other exhibitors from the day who […]
The gorgeous Ting asked me to create a logo for her blog, The Ting Thing, which is all about beauty and eating in Birmingham. The brief was something smart, sharp and including a triangle shape. I worked up some different ideas and the one she loved was this black triangle with the letters TTT creating a geometric pattern inside.

Hair stylist Lindsey Hughes approached me for a new logo design for her curly hair styling services based in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. My second question (after can you cut my hair, please?) was what look Lindsey had in mind for the logo. She asked for a simple black and white design using a script font, and left the rest to me.

In the chaos of moving house earlier in December I found myself with a single evening in which to design a Christmas card for my friends & family. It was three hours of speed hand-lettering: I had already thought of the concept but had only a few hours in which to draw, ink and digitise my design and get it to the printer before midnight. In some ways the Countdown music going round in my […]
This week I had a hankering to create some wedding invitations with a geometric theme, and opted for the classic design element, the chevron. Chevrons are just cool. I have a hot pink lampshade with white chevrons going around it and I think it makes my house look instantly more with-it (although saying with-it is probably not very with-it, but anyway). I’m getting ready to open an Etsy shop for all my wedding stationery designs, but in the […]
