What a lovely experience this has been! This was kind of a dream project because I get to paint florals and leaves (sage leaves, specifically) and do lettering with my brush as well. Though we eventually dropped the sage leaves while finalising the logo, we retained the 2 kinds of flowers that I painted.
Cotton and Sage is the brainchild of florist E’an here in Singapore. She specifically wanted a certain brush lettering style for the logo type, and gave me creative freedom for the watercolour florals. I liked the lettering style as it was a something that I’ve been trying myself. After a few rounds of revisions, we have arrived at the logo that you can see on the pop-up shop sign below.
It was a breeze working on the Cotton and Sage logo, and I am grateful for opportunities like these. Oh, and did I mention that I got a gorgeous bouquet of thanks from the florist herself? It made my desk pretty despite all the inky mess.
It’s such a pleasure to be showing you the logo for Mita Kelder, a photographer here in Singapore. I really enjoyed working alongside this lady! Mita wanted a logo, and a logo mark as well that will serve as her photos’ watermark. She also wanted a hand-drawn camera to go with her name.
I’ve been doing a number of photographers’ logos lately, but each one is different. I enjoyed drawing different styles of the camera for her, and after a few mixing and matching, I was able to finalise the logo and watermark symbol. I’m very much delighted to share these photos with you today!
I”m excited to share with you this hand-lettered logo for a wonderful photographer, Vanessa, of Captured by V and Co. So far I’ve been doing logos for these awesome photographers, both here in Singapore and in the US, and I have to say it has always been a pleasure working with these creative ladies. Vanessa was no different. A self-taught photographer who does newborn and maternity sessions, I’m quite surprised that her new website has a theme that’s quite different from all the others – nautical!
The hand-lettered logo I’ve designed specially for her (she wanted a lil red bow) turned into a logo that complements the theme, and makes an elegant watermark for her photos, too. Featuring this logo is a great way to end this super busy, super rainy week. Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
Today I’m sharing this sweet hand-lettered logo for wedding and lifestyle photographer, Melissa Vossler! She wanted a swirly logo in my lettering style, and I designed a few rounds of logos for her to choose from. I was so glad that we have agreed on this final artworkbecause personally, this is one of my favourites.
Her portfolio is worth checking out, specially if you’re in Orange County, because she does amazing family portraits and weddings (I love the babies most!)!
I’m very happy to share this new logo! I’ve been working a lot with fellow creatives lately, and I am constantly inspired. One of them is Bethany of Bethany Belle Photography from Orange County, California. Her aesthetic truly matched mine, and she asked me to create a similar feel from her beautiful wedding.
“My brand is very soft, romantic, with an organic feeling to it”, she told me. So taking the cue from the sweet photos taken on her big day, along with my calligraphy style, I wrote a few options. In no time, Bethany and I have finalised her logo – with a matching calligraphy mailing address for her personalised stamp.
You can find more of photographs on her blog. Thanks so much, Bethany, for working with me to create your brand’s logo!
Katie Price, the designer behind Priceless Design Studios reached out to me last February for a new logo for her branding makeover. Katie was very specific when she described the calligraphy that she wanted. Upright script, feminine and uncluttered without being overly simple. It’s pretty much how I write (with the exception of some fancy flourishes when I’m in the mood!).
After a few revisions on the ‘D’, we settled for this logo that you will currently see on her website. Seeing her newly-designed site got me in such high spirits – I love seeing what my clients do with the logos I’ve designed for them. It was a breeze working with Katie! I’m looking forward to more collaborations in the near future.
Carla of Peppermint Press in Australia designs gorgeous wedding invitations and baby announcements. She got in touch with me through my shop on Etsy (I have met lots of interesting people on Etsy!) as she was revamping the Peppermint Press website and wanted a logo designed. With the current logo being used for almost 3 years, she was ready for a new look. I remember she was looking for a fluid, carefree look, a bit more on the playful side.
I’m happy with how it blends very well with the website, go take a look! It’s in a lovely mint color, of course. It was such a pleasure writing this logo for Peppermint Press.
Yasmin of Darling & Mabel got in touch with me from Sydney, Australia, and asked me to create a hand-lettered logo for an Events Company she was setting up. As an Events Stylist, she’s also a creative and has her own Etsy shop as well, and it was such a breeze working before simply because I adore her taste.
You’ll see the original lettering above, written with my trusty Micron pen. Do you notice how I enjoyed writing all those swirls? I remember making it a bit difficult to choose which logo was the best. I could not decide, either! But I’m glad with Yasmin’s choice and it’s lovely seeing that logo on top of her blog every time I visit.
If you haven’t seen this yet, check out another lettering logo I did for Spilled Milk Cakery in California.
We all have our own vacation memories, be it our first trip on our own, our romantic honeymoon, or that backpacking adventure in Europe. We have our own favorite cities that we wish we could visit as often as we could. Paper and Place is this wonderful shop located in Dallas, Texas that customizes jewelry, accessories and housewares with maps of our favorite places. I think her products would make wonderful favors for a destination wedding!
Erica and I worked together to design her logo – a wispy, flowy script with minimal flourishes. She also has an Etsy shop, be sure to check it out if you’re looking for a unique handmade gift for yourself or someone you love.
I wrote all these logos with a traditional dip pen fitted with a flex nib and my trusty black Calli ink.
I am very happy to be able to play a part in the branding of this wonderful cake shop in Long Beach, California. The woman behind all those delicious-looking goodies, Ariane, got in touch with me through Etsy. She wanted a feminine-looking stacked logo for Spilled Milk Cakery and wanted to have her logo ready in time for her shop’s launch in September – which also marks her daughter’s birthday.
We talked about swirls and simplicity, which somehow mirrors her very own personality! We finally came up with a logo with two variations – one with a cake stand and another one without, which you can see on her site. The cake stand version is both our favorite, and will be used for her other marketing collateral.
Personally, the best part in writing a logo is seeing it come together with all the other creative elements. I love how it blends with the overall branding of a certain business or product. And I am in awe at how pretty the Spilled Milk Cakery website turned out to be! Ariane’s creations make me wish we’re neighbors so I can offer my exceptional taste-testing skills. But knowing my tremendous love for all things sweet, I’d probably give her the go-ahead. Every. Single. Time.
