Thread Therapy Logo Design

 

Screen Shot 2013-12-22 at 8.02.58 PMI happened to stumble upon Thread Therapy a few months ago via Collette Budd of Brier Rose Design‘s instagram. As soon as I laid eyes on that awesome little fox design I was hooked! I’ve done a yarn creation myselfand know how difficult it is to come up with a design let alone one that has perfect lines & intricate details like the ones Crystal of Thread Therapy creates! All that to say I was totally honored when I received a text message from Crystal inquiring about logo + branding design for her new company. The rest was history, we were able to have a FaceTime meeting and discuss what Thread Therapy is all about. I can’t wait to share my interview and more images on The Inspiration Den!

The Thread Therapy logo is one of my favorites I’ve created, I love the balance of modern + vintage and that’s what I hoped to accomplish with Crystals branding. My initial vision for this logo mainly centered around the typeface, I hoped to find something that would replicate a thread look just like Crystals pieces. I was SO happy when I found this font! I did a little kerning, transferred it to a piece of wood and then used my wood burner to give her business card design an organic feel. I created a second logo for Crystals stickers for her packaging, I used the same type but added some water-color detail for the background.

Making Dreams Come True

What I’ve been learning lately… “Comparison is the thief of joy” -Theodore Roosevelt

I don’t know about you but sometimes being an artist and creating can be beyond discouraging. There always seems to be someone else who might do everything better, or people seem to like them better, and might even be more talented than I am and then I think WHATS THE POINT?! I’m then reminded that as long as I LOVE what I do, enjoy the creating process, and know that maybe a few people dig what I do makes it worth it. It’s definitely easier said than done but I’ll always keep trying. So until then I’m just gonna keep MAKING DREAMS COME TRUE!

10 Year Vow Renewal – Featured on Green Wedding Shoes!

I was so honored to design the vow renewal invitation and paper creations for this sweet 10 year wedding anniversary shoot and especially honored that it was featured on Green Wedding Shoes. Amanda Auer of In The Now Weddings did such an amazing job visualizing and designing each and every detail of this shoot and Jasmine Star captured each one of these awesome details!

This shoot totally captures my favorite design aesthetic: Modern, Fun, Pops of Color, and magical! The wood mounted anniversary invitations feature a custom 10 logo that is also carried throughout the entire paper suite from invite to menu! I’m also crazy about the gold glitter and hand dipped details!

Another awesome idea Amanda had was to create a kids corner, custom signs, chalk, candy bar, and gold painted pin wheels!!!

I hope you love this shoot as much as I did, you can see more amazing images and an awesome video on Green Wedding Shoes!
