1. Bone Daddy’s Identity System
From the color to the illustrations, everything about Bone Daddy’s identity system is in your face screaming look at me (in a good way)! Designed by Matchbox Studio, the identity covers the menu, business cards, coasters, and note cards. I may be starting to be partial to BBQ design but this is just awesome. I love the illustration style (by Nate Williams) and the custom typefaces. It’s all just so wonderful and is making me crave some ‘que… luckily we are headed out today to Hava BBQ in Havasu, whoo! Found via design work life.
2. Flora Grubb’s Vertical Gardens
Last summer, I liked to think that I was a master gardener but I really have no clue what I’m doing, as one can tell from the jungle of weeds in my backyard. But this vertical garden by Flora Grubb Gardens just seems perfect for me! It’s low maintenance and green and looks like an art piece! I just love it… But I wish it wasn’t so expensive. You can buy one through their web shop here (or figure out how to make one). Found via Design*Sponge.
3. Bonded by Hope Silver Bow Necklace
Since finding this sweet little necklace, it has been sold. But isn’t it beautiful! I saved this in my Evernote and tagged it “want!” She does have more items for sale in her shop, but my favorite is now gone. Found via Oh Hello Friend.
4. Carabiner Outdoor Connections Business Card – FPO: For Print Only
A business card is left behind as a reminder of he who left it… What would a hand varnished, laser engraved wooden card say about you? Designed by Staci Paul, a student at University of Wisconsin-Stout. Found via For Print Only.
5. Cheng-Halliday Wedding Invitation Book
While brainstorming book inspired wedding invitations for a friend’s wedding, I came across these beautiful invites! Beeeeeeautiful invites!! Designed by Sara Hanks Giessen, for a destination wedding in Iceland, the invitation books hold all formal invite requirements but then have the extra special touches of the details of the couple’s lives and an awesome map of where they’ve been together or had to endure a long distance relationship. I just adore print design and get so much inspiration from wedding collateral, the way that the design flows through each of the pieces is fun to look through. Truly these are a work of art… I bet no one threw them away either! It was so hard to choose just one image, more can be found on Sara’s site, including the invitation itself, save the date, and program. Found via the archives of head vs. heart.
