Boy Baby Shower

Most recently I worked on a design for a BOY baby shower! This was the first boy shower I’ve done so I was really excited!

The theme colors were blue and yellow.  Also, as the father is French so that also was an inspiration for the card design! To create the backdrop, as the venue had white curtains already I thought it would be an awesome photo backdrop. Simple pom pom flowers were stringed and arranged to create the focal point. Below it, I made a simple banner. It’s pretty easy! You can do it too!

A Little Cupcake, A Lot of Fun

CUPCAKE FUN MOCKUPSo I was inspired to design this cupcake invite to a party I planned to throw for some of my friends. It had been awhile since we had some fun, so I decided to take it one step further and design a card!

We love getting together to have a good time with friends and to have lots of sweet eatables. This is the inspiration for my card! Let me know what you guys think!

Design Tip of the Day : RGB VS CMYK

During the design process, it may be easy to overlook our colour mode. However, I learnt this the hard way and so I’ve decided to highlight this. We should not assume that what we design on the computer when printed will come out as exactly as what we see on the screen.

REMEMBER : Anything web designed – RGB colour ; Anything To Be Printed – CMYK colour

RGB stands for Red, Green and Blue. This really  means that it uses these basic colours to make up the other colours.

CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black.

Our computers emit light and show colour in red,blue and green. They are also able to emit colours in a limited range. Overlapping the primary colours red, blue and green gives rise to secondary colours cyan, magenta and yellow. Printed products usually require the four colour process CMYK. *if you notice, your printer cartridge at home may even show this!*

Printers that accept RGB modes, will convert to CMYK automatically and from first hand experience, this results in faded and dull colours when printed! The final print was so far off the actual colour I had designed for! I ended up reprinting the whole set of invitations.

So, always convert your files to CMYK for better print results and a better final outcome!

KL – NYC Bridal Shower

So about three months ago I posted about a new project I was working on- Travel Theme Bridal Shower. In the end after many rounds of discussions, it turned into a KL-NYC theme party. The reason was because the bride was a Japanese, living in KL for the past 5 years and she’s moving to NYC with her man! Her favorite colours were pink and white and so that lay the basis for the overall decor.

Final Invitations Design….

My “architect” side of me came out when I decided to do a skyline backdrop for a photobooth. I did a simple one using SHARPIE markers and mahjong paper.

Can you identify some of the iconic buildings?

I did some research on graphic design and interestingly, to highlight buildings further away in the background, it’s better to draw them in thicker lines. I thought that was interesting since in architectural drawings, we always use thicker lines for objects closer to the viewer.
