Simple, stylish, elegant and clean; you can't go wrong with black and white. The bride-to-be liked both wishing-well cards so much she will use them both. A simple yet beautiful design that can easily be applied to order-of-service, place cards, Thank You-cards, bonbonniere and so on.

Another job that I really, really enjoyed designing. I used a dreamy spring-green background with lots of vine-motifs around the text. I kept the text simple yet feminine, and designed the invitation closely around the theme for the getaway.

Anyone who knows me know that I have a massive soft-spot for newborn twins. Maybe because I have been there and done that, or maybe because it looks so incredibly magic and beautiful? This was one of those jobs where I found it hard to stop- I could really get carried away! The amazing photo is courtesy of talented lifestyle-photographer Kristen Cook www.kristencook.com.au . The twin birth-announcement required colours to reflect both boy and girl. I went for 1 traditional and classic design, and 1 modern (bottom). Mum and dad chose the top one in the end, a baby pink- and blue combo on deep chocolate brown. Enjoy your little babies, its a magical and intense time that passes too quickly!

A cocktail-party in a bar by the beach; what better way to celebrate an engagement? The couple wanted a beachy feel without the cliches of sea-shells and sails. I used a bright aqua combined with crisp white, stripes and swirls to capture the "look and feel" of a trendy bar by the beach.

A pink version of Jay's and Lachlan's retro-inspired blue designs. Since Elle is still only young, I replaced the "1" in the circle with her initial. Its handy if her parents decide to follow up with a Thank You-card or other ideas later than the track, so they can keep within the same style of design and that way tie it all together with a theme.

The mother-to-be wanted a very specific look for her baby-shower invitations. We ended up with a mix of retro, kitschy and shabby-chic, unusual but still reflecting the colour-scheme she wanted; something suitable for both boy or girl. Good luck when the big news arrives in a few weeks!

A series consisting of a Save the Date, an invitation, a Wishing Well-card and an RSVP-card. Sophie and Chris are getting married in autumn and wanted their wedding stationery to reflect the colours of the season. They are planning a warm, intimate wedding and chose a colour-scheme that embraced both this and the venue, Chris's family-orchard and farm.
I've done the invitation and the candle-wrap for Oliver's baptism, and now we've finished the project with his Thank You-cards. Its hard to fail with such a cutie in the photo! We based the colour and style on his sage-green outfit, and kept it classic and clean. In case you haven't seen the previous work for Oliver, here it is:
Candle-wrap (it looked amazing when wrapped around the candle)
In Lachlan's case we went from a Black and Red Pirate-themed birthday to a simple, blue and funky concept. The pirate-design gave me a change to dive into illustration again, while the photographic design Lachlan's parents went for in the end gave me a good laugh. What a wonderful photo!
