Next up on the baby shower invitation tour, Martin Twins!!
Fall-friendly, but not “PUMPKINNNNN” was the goal – so the idea evolved to apples. Twin apples, that is. This invitation was designed with fall colors, hand lettering and storks with bundles sporting each babies’ initial.
Handlettering queen, Lauren Hom posted an instagram challenge for hand lettering pieces so I hopped aboard. I love the hand lettered design, but there’s so much “meh” hand lettering out there, I tried to stay out of the game in attempts to save the world from more “handwriting” rather than design or calligraphy. However, Lauren’s work is SO inspiring I faced the fear and jumped in.
Not only was it so refreshing to see so much good design work fill my feed with her followers on the challenge, it was reminiscent of SCAD days where you want to be better because you’re surrounded by better.
I’m not an advocate of many challenges.. but when one pops up that has genuine artists and creatives participating and launching a hashtag feed of true art and design, it’s well worth the follow. Seriously. Take a peek at the hashtag to see other artists’ work on this challenge below and sign up (if you dare) to follow along and participate!
