1. Andrea Stark Poster Series
This project just screams CREATIVE! At first I had saved this blog post because of the beautiful patterns, but then as I read through the process and concept, I was blown away! Each poster design was created by manipulating an existing object, Stark describes:
This poster series was part of a wider research project exploring the value of decoration. The designs were created using everyday objects, residues and ephemera. Each A1 print is double-sided, with the original objects printed on the reverse of the decorative design that was created from them.
View more of the project, here, like the packaging for delivery, and the other prints in the series. Truly amazing design and print work. Found via For Print Only.
2. Gallery Picture Wall
Love the colors in these family photographs, and the way they incorporated straight color boxes, plus the wood typography board with their previous addresses. There’s DIYs for these different projects and a lot more on the site, The Savvy Photographer. So sweet! Found via Vania Morris’ Pinterest.
3. Jamie Reed’s Magnetic Toy Promo
Creating a truly unique promotion for yourself as a designer is hard! Designers are going to such great lengths to stand a part. Obviously, the design has to be above the rest, but now the printing aspect of it is what is really putting you on the top of the pile. This designer, Jamie Reed, was inspired by Wooly Willy, the magnetic children’s toy. He then illustrated the different hairstyles (based on pop culture) you could create, but each style was also depicting his different skills as a designer. View more images here. Found via For Print Only, a blog that is quickly becoming one of my favorite print related design blogs.
4. Vintage Flora Wedding Invitations
It’s been quite awhile since I’ve featured any wedding invites. This suite was designed by Kathleen. The task at hand was to create an invitation inspired by ” inspired by Elizabeth Blackwell’s “A Curious Herbal” as well as vintage French ephemera such as vintage soap and pharmacy labels.” What an awesome bride to give such a descriptive look and feel for her wedding invitations!

5. DIY Mason Jars
How cool would it be to have custom made mason jars—all you need is a glue gun and spray paint. I was thinking of putting our last name and our wedding date. Found via Vania Morris’ Pinterest.
