It took all of me and then some to keep this a secret but today I can finally share the news! I’m so thrilled to be one of the designers of a new collection of project life editions coming out this Spring 2013. And I’m so honored to be listed alongside these 6 very AMAZING designers.
Here’s a first look at the kit I designed, the Midnight Edition. It’s crisp, clean…minimalist. The color palette is neutral and versatile (soft black, greys, yellow with pops of kraft) and is designed to work for all occasions but most importantly for me, designed to let your photos shine.
Here’s a sampling of some of the 3×4 cards that are included in this edition. In designing this edition I turned to my favorite design elements – the ones that I consistently come back to year after year – stripes, dots, bold type, hand drawn words, a typewriter font, and simple label shapes.
(I pulled these images from my design files, please note that the actual cards have rounded corners)
The entire design process was an amazing experience. Intense and crazed at times, filled with plenty of what-am-I-doing moments (Will I be able to finish this on time? Who needs sleep anyways? Will people like this? Is this really happening??). Did I mention that it was intense and absolutely incredible experience? It was. It was one of the highlights of 2012. I couldn’t include it in my roundup last week but now I can say it: designing this midnight edition was my fave creative project for 2012.
Thank you for letting me share this very HAPPY moment with you. To see the entire collection of project life kits coming out this Spring be sure to drop by Becky Higgin’s blog
