My head is full of these Valentine, Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander Mc Queen tulle embroidered dresses. Don’t you want a few of them? They are truly everything i ever dreamt of. They definitely play a huge part in my totem line art inspiration.

Lately, i’ve been aching for a new ink on my body and i think i might have the one idea that is right for me. Three constellations, Leo, Pisces and Taurus on the back of my arm. I’m not quite sure the style i will design it in, but it’s definitely going to be something magical and mysterious. So here’s i am, starting with my favourite sign Taurus. Jason’s sign

Oh i've waited for so long for this post!! I started designing the invitations quite early, in September actually, because i knew that it would take us forever to actually print and send them. And we still haven't.. oops! So if any of our family and friends are reading this post.. ta da!! You'll soon receive yours.

I'm am SO excited for this event to be quite honest. It's like all my birthdays and Christmases in one. Having everyone we love and care for join us to meet Jason and celebrate him and his name. Naturally, i want this day to be unforgettable and perfect, so i've designed and planned everything till the very last detail.

Will have to do my best not to share everything, but imagine an evening ceremony in July, dinner in candlelights, a naked teepee dressed with leaves, bird cages full of baby’s breath and oh so much more magic. My theme is enchanted forest, so there might be some deer and bunnies here and there. I really wanted to keep everything pure, innocent, magical and woodsy.

Oh hello winter! Colder days are already here. The Christmas tree is up, fire burning in the wood stove and us sitting on the couch working once Jason falls asleep for the night. Wouldn’t have it any other way. I vividly remember how last winter was cold and heavy on me, but experiencing it with the a little guy is so much different!

We saw the first snow on the mountain today and hopefully Jason will see his first snowfall if it doesn’t melt away.

On a sidenote, don’t you just love a moody weather on the beach? It always gets me with these dark clouds contrasting the bright blue waters.

I went on a little Instagram rant just a couple days ago. You see, the gold algorithm subject that has viciously affected so many finally pushed my buttons. It wasn’t about the numbers and views, oh no, i couldn’t care less about those. I mean, i don’t post regularly either way so i totally get why people wouldn’t engage. But even though i’m behind the scenes these days, i got eyes and ears everywhere.

Long story short, what’s bothering me is the way my  home feed is laid out. Good God, if you watched my stories you’d have seen the screen rec i did with the same and same brands showing up and then 6 posts in row by instagram – one – after – the – other. It is a delicate subject because these days i truly feel socially (media) old. I’ve been around since Instagram wasn’t a thing and our phones weren’t used as cameras.

I’ve missed interacting and actually seeing my oldest Instagram friends pop up and felt completely bombarded with all these ads and brands that i followed for pure inspiration. In the 30 minutes in a day i have to spend, i don’t need that. So how is this algorithm actually for our own benefit? Sorry, don’t see it.

Last few thoughts on how everything has changed. When social media didn’t matter and we just had our blogs. And then we used social media to attract audience to our blogs and now using social media to built careers. Oh things change so fast and the need to slow down pops up in every corner.

Late night shenanigans, when Jason is asleep. Forever inspired by the moon energy and of course my representing Season of the Witch Pinterest board. Wanted to play with something a little darker and mysterious, noir aesthetic for this one. I couldn’t decide in the end which version i liked, so i’m sharing them all with you 🙂 The totem one is currently my phone wallpaper.

Everything is based on a picture i took a couple of years ago and was laying around in my vsco library. Until.. i was out of things to pin and stories to watch this weekend and played around a bit. Kinda ready to bring back a little more darkness and mystery in my life again. Let’s say i started with a black tulle dress with silver sequins that resemble a lot of my totems <3

Boy we’ve been busy!!! And for such a good reason!

This little baby has been almost a year (if not more) in the making. I’ve put all my love, experience, research into use after receiving a number of inquires for a web design course. And here it finally is! I’m over the moon to be able to finally share this with you. It happened really suddenly so i’m still pinching  myself.

This course is for the graphic designers, giving you all the tools, process and knowledge needed to create a custom, responsive web design.

We’re launching it in late November, and have an early bird offer with 10% off, that will expire on the launch date. You can learn all about the content and modules here.

Oh wait and see what else is in (the courses) store!

Oh how i love working with so many different and unique people. Each of them has a different story to say and i always get so inspired by them and excited to share their voice through their brand. Jessica is a doula and had the most beautiful and inspiring story to share with me. She knew what she wanted and what would fit her brand and i was really lucky to help her with that journey.

We strongest brand keywords were, whimsical, magical, comfortable with a bit of 70’s vibes. Jessica had this concept of the baby inside the egg that we brought to life in the icon. The primary font for the logo was created customary by me and of course i was eager to illustrate some flowers for the whimsical part of it.

I haven’t shared with you most of the rebrands i’ve worked in the past year and the list is growing bigger and bigger! I’ll be working in the next months updating my portfolio and share more and more of the exciting projects i’ve worked on. Be prepared for lots of different styles and moods!

You may have noticed that i share a lot less of the process lately in my new branding works. That is mostly because our brand plan always hits the spot and we get the logos straight away. So the final logos end up being the ones i proposed originally. Below you will see a few alterations of the final logos, with a small stop to one of my favourites the illustrated baby egg.

I had this concept of life growing from the yolk, translated into flowers and leaves and roots. We needed using a much simpler and edgier version of the logo that fits the brand perfectly. The primary logos are also custom ones below as a second alteration of the brand’s logo.
