So last Friday I came home from work to find THIS…

Exhibit A.

I was so, so, SO incredibly excited to see that it was from Chen Design Associates in San Francisco, because this meant that a piece I submitted way back got accepted for their handmade design book, Fingerprint 2.

This is my wedding invitation, RSVP and thank you cards that made it. My wedding took place in a garden, so I wanted the invitation to have a flower theme, but more modern. I think the poppy line art managed to capture that without being overly sweet or sentimental.

Invitation.

Thank you card.

For the people that made it into the book, Chen Design Associates sent out a gorgeous notification package that included several letterpress postcards that were designed by people such as Debbie Millman. You can see some of the postcards below.

Well, well, well…look who made it in the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden ad.

People, this came as a complete surprise to me that my sweet hubby and I are in a DSBG ad, but there you go. Our wonderful photographer, Thomas Geist, did such an awesome job with our photos that I can’t recommend him highly enough! Also, I love my dress. Still.

ps: why does it look like hubby is drinking my blood? and I look like I think it’s the most hysterical thing ever?

Today I decided to drive around Charlotte to take some photos and I found some really nice typography.
