a special valentine's menu

another one of my gigs recently has been providing taiim cellar with promotion materials for their facebook page. since my boy works there, it's easy for us to work together on this ongoing project.

i took more pictures of their special valentine's week menu, and added some colorful elements to make the menu really pop.

the best part about this job, though, was eating all the food after the shoot! i also got to try their specialty cocktails (liquid baklava, anyone? YUM!) and have a glass a few glasses of wine to boot. it was, let's say... fun!

mood boards

it seems like "mood boards" are all the rage these days. it's actually a really good idea to gather your inspiration for an upcoming project in one place, rather than having all those good ideas floating around in your head! you can then show your mood board to a client or friend to see if you are in the right direction, before starting on the design process. i want to start incorporating mood boards into my routine... it seems like it will keep me focused and help me remember where i gathered my inspiration from.

i am working on a new project with a friend of mine. i decided it would be a good idea to share a mood board with her to be on the same page with our ideas & designs, before we started the design process. what i love about these designs are the positive and negative spaces working well together and the strong text with curly accents. what do you think?
