Evernotes Every Friday

1. Modern Wedding Invitation, Mariola and Alberto

At first glance, this wedding invitiation could be mistaken a general graphic design collateral piece. It’s so modern from its type treatment and tulip photographed on bright white. But it is a wedding invitation, and a very well created one by Hugo Blanes. Found via For Print Only.

2. CityMaps

It’s about time that a map was created based off logos. That really is an easy way to read a map nowadays with its ease to see quickly what is where. Bravo CityMaps. Found via Brand New.

3. The Work of Colin Hesterly

In addition to the wonderful illustration work of Colin Hesterly, what I love most is the subtle and sweet Disney references throughout his pieces. His show reel is just inspiring. The depth of textures and color brings the viewer further into his work. Oh and he has a map of Neverland called “My Adventure Map.” There isn’t a piece in his portfolio that is just so-so. Love it all. Definitely a new fan of Colin and looking forward to more. Found via Veerle’s Inspiration Stream.

4. Saloon Menu

Ever since my hubby got into BBQ catering, I find myself saving menus a lot more often! And I just love this one by Oat Creative for Saloon. Not only do I love the paper it’s printed on but the unusual layout of the special caught my eye. Found via designworklife.

5. Herbalist & Alchemist Student Project

This redesign is a student project, done hypothetically for Herbalist & Alchemist. From the designer, Chad Michael Smith,

I wanted to take the client in a much hipper, modern and slightly more sophisticated direction while rethinking the target market and gearing it towards a more youthful crowd. The type treatments & patterns were created from the ancient language of alchemy which is what the company’s traditions are built upon. The clean yet vibrant color label suggests the neo-vintage vibe while still retaining a sense of class.

The logo on the seal and the individual Body, Mind, Mood type treatments are so cohesive, plus the underlying texture on the label really brings them altogether. I also love the vibrant colors that set each bottle a part. Truly a top notch student project and one of the best I have seen in a long time. Found via thedieline.
