Save the Date Announcements

Save the Date Announcements

With wedding season just around the corner, the studio was honored to create these super special Save the Date announcements. Using lavender, felt envelopes and a black and white photo; these cards were a pleasure to create. They were then sealed with a deeper, purple return address label cut in an oval shape to match the oval behind the names and date. Of course it helped that violets and blue bells were in bloom at the time. It made the project “plum” sweet.

Ballroom Dance Videography

Ballroom Dance Videography

As graphic designers and fine artists, the studio does not make its claim to videography. When the need arises, however, one must do what one must do. In this case it gave us great joy and satisfaction to be apart of the 2017 Spring Showcase at TDI Ballroom Dance Studio. In-between dancing the night away, we were able to earn our keep by recording for all to enjoy. Please find these recordings on TDI’s YouTube channel simply by clicking here.

American Fair Credit Council Gets Vectorized

American Fair Credit Council Gets Vectorized

The studio was pleased to create a vectorized copy of the American Fair Credit Council’s logo and seals. Vector graphics are high resolution images that are produced on the computer by mathematical equations. How they are created is way over the studio’s heads, but we certainly know the difference when we see or create one. The quality is exquisite. When the American Fair Credit Council asked if we could oblige them, we were more than glad to. Keep us in mind for all of your high res projects!

Valentine Fun with #handmadevalentineexchange

Valentine Fun with #handmadevalentineexchange

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! “We hope you have a day filled with love.” While this is true, this was the slogan on the inside of our handmade valentines that the studio sent out. Somehow we got a hold of the Handmade Valentine Exchange list and signed right up. We handcrafted 10 valentines then sent them to a list of fellow creators from all over the world. These addresses were emailed to us as part of the process. Our list contained people from the US, Canada, and India. Getting valentines from complete strangers from in different regions is pretty cool. Thank you Julia

CCCD Logo Repainted

While the studio and it’s helpers were busy in the afternoons sketching, painting, crocheting, coloring, and sewing with the students at CCCD; the day hours were spent repainting the logo on the auditorium walls. Before and after pictures shows the much needed improvements. Unfortunately we ran out of time to put the name of the school above the logo. We tried with all our might to get that far but sadly we were unsuccessful. We guess that means we have to go back!

Children’s Financial Banks

Children's Financial Banks

After 20 years, our product is finally being commercially produced. Hooray! This began as a hand drawn item. Since then the studio has learned mounds about technology and software usage. So much so that we can offer this simple craft and teaching aid to anyone wanting to instruct about finances. There are three “buildings” manufactured out of paper; a bank, church, and store. Children can color each building. With help, they can cut and glue each bank to assemble them. After assembling, loved ones can teach the children how a certain percentage of every dollar they are given goes into
