birds

Pete Cromer

birds have gotten a bad rap these past few years, appearing in a cutesy manner on anything and everything from ceramics to dish towels to tote bags (put a bird on it!) at one point i found myself saying, “if i see one more bird…” but Australian designer and illustrator Pete Cromer has made me appreciate our feathered friends once again with his Aussie bird prints. i also love his other prints like this whale head and happy cogs. all available at his online shop.

wedding invitation

i designed a simple wedding invite for a close friend who is getting hitched later this year. the end product is actually different colours (plum and navy blue to match her wedding theme) & printed on brown paper. i’m quite partial to the green / blue / yellow combo. the only prerequisite for the design was that she wanted birds and nothing formal & stuffy. it’s pretty long, but folds down to fit into a standard envelope.

i’m happy to say they are very pleased with their little invite :)

i referenced this old book for the birdy patterns

(think the 1995 BBC, not the keira knightley version… )
