Black Crow Media Open House

November 17, 2011

Black Crow Media, based in Daytona, Florida, owns and operates both AM and FM radio stations in 5 markets over 4 states.  The Valdosta, Georgia market, celebrated their annual Open House on November 10th.  When I was asked to design the invitation for the event, I knew it had to reflect everything that is special about everyone at Black Crow.  The lucky clients and community members who received an invitation were treated to an evening of music and great food.  All of the studios were open, so everyone could get a behind the scenes view into the life of the DJ’s, Production Assistants and Sales and Marketing Teams that make Black Crow a leader in their field.  Black Crow operates 7 stations in Valdosta: Newstalk 105.9 WVGA, Rock 108, 99.5 Kix Country, Hot 102.7, 106.9 The Eagle, 95.7 The Mix and Star 105.3, as well as their digital media outlet ValdostaToday.com

While designing the Bosworth Family Christmas card for 2011, my original design was intended for a silver foil embossed print on Cranes Lettra in Solar White with a white envelope,  lined with black japanese chiyogami paper with gold and silver metallic leaves.  However, when I ran into these beautiful papers at Paper Source this afternoon, my design will now be on Neenah Flash Pearl with gold foil embossing and just look what the ivory envelopes will be lined with:

I couldn’t resist publishing the engagement photo for one of the brides that I am designing for right now.  The wedding is early spring 2012.  Their colors are guava and ivory.  Until I can publish the invitation suite, take a look at their gorgeous engagement photos:

Casino Invitations

November 3, 2011

Ever since I published the Casino Invitations for the boys at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, I have received numerous requests for this invitation.  Recently, I had a request to take it out of the box and create a flat invitation for a Sweet Sixteen.  This particular invitation plays homage to The Hard Rock Casino.  I hope that you like it as much as I enjoyed taking it in a new direction.

Arredondo-Hilton Wedding

November 3, 2011

Connie and Chris’ wedding took place the first weekend of October.  It was an outdoor wedding and the first cool evening of Fall had arrived.  The Bridesmaids wore chocolate brown and the Bride was in ivory.  The evening was filled with laughter, dancing and the blessings of a bright future for such a lovely couple.  I knew immediately that this particular invitation suite was going to be alot of fun, when I read the draft for the couples Save The Dates.  It read, “They share a mutual love of animals, music and cupcakes…”  How wonderful.  The Save The Date postcards were on metallic opal cardstock with the engagement photo of the couple, vintage designs and Nelly Script.  The wedding invitation was on Venitian Brown and Gold Leaf with custom brown thermography that included an ivory lined envelope.  The result, classic elegance.
