Copper Foiled Letterpress Moscow Mule Prints

Copper Foil Moscow Mule Print

I finally went for it. I got my Moscow Mule typography design copper-foiled and letterpressed. They turned out gorgeous and I couldn't be happier. What helped me pull the trigger was my good friend Christian Kaysen (of Kaysen Photography) said he would love to do a styled shoot with them if I did. I figured if I was going to sell them, they were gonna need some awesome photos and Christian captured them perfectly. Plus we got to drink the cocktails out of copper mugs at the end which is always a plus. If you've never had a Moscow Mule out of a copper mug, you need to. Makes all the difference. 

You can purchase one of these lovelies in my shop or on Etsy. Get em in time for Christmas! Perfect to gift with a copper mug set for that Moscow Mule lover in your life. Or anyone who enjoys a good cocktail ;)

Save the Dates • Karianna & Scott

You know how your friends' younger siblings stay the same age forever? In your mind they are always that cute but pestering little person that always wanted to play the games you were playing, watching whatever you were watching, etc.  But then that moment - that somewhat shocking moment - comes when you realize that they have in fact aged. Gasp. And not only that, but you really weren't that much older than them to begin with. I guess adult life tends to continually bridge the age-gap.

I didn't know Karianna growing up and I only met her brother in high school but she was still a couple years younger than us. So when she - and others in grades younger than us - announced she and her finance were engaged, it was a little bit of that gasp moment - but in the best way. Jon and I were so excited to hear the news and are so happy for this wonderful couple! So I was beyond honored and excited when I was asked to do the save the dates and wedding invites!

Kari knew she liked and wanted a laurel wreath of some sort with their initials inside, and also liked the idea of kraft paper. Her brother, Christian, took their gorgeous engagement pictures on the beach so we incorporated some of the design elements we talked about but decided on a two-sided approach so no writing or design would overlap and interfere with the picture. One of her wedding colors is a coral shade so we used that on the backside with a heart pattern. I always think a backside and pop of color makes invites extra special :)

Congrats Kari & Scott!

Brand • Jeremy Armstrong {Creative Content}

In order to create a brand that truly reflects someone and  what they do, you have to somewhat know them. That's why you meet with your potential clients, correspond with them, understand what they are drawn to with examples and pins on Pinterest, etc. The great thing about creating brands for friends, is that you can often skip ahead to the creating part. This was definitely the case when creating this look for my friend (and co-worker), Jeremy. Jeremy has been the managing editor at Worship Leader for nearly a decade. I've had the pleasure of designing the magazine for the past 3 years now, so needless to say, I've learned to anticipate how he might react to a certain design or layout when I present an idea for his opinion or feedback. 

So when he said he needed a logo to help promote his side freelance venture as a content creator for other businesses and organizations, it came together pretty quickly. He knew he wanted to use a typewriter font for his name and the rest fell into place. I expanded the idea of the typewriter and ink which translated into splatters and washes to create an overall look that is classically vintage yet still clean and modern.

Here is the branding sheet! So excited to move into business cards and more with the look! Stay tuned :)
