The business has grown (and become official in Oregon!) so the site had to too. Introducing the new and improved Jenafer Brown Designs. Check out my story, what I offer as well as the beginnings of a growing print shop.
I am so excited to feature the talented Kim, owner and designer of Swoon Floral Design, on the blog today. A Portland native, Kim combines her love of interiors and horticulture as a floral designer/genius for local weddings and events.
She approached me to help her with some promotional art for an event where she will be partnering with Anthropologie, here in the Pearl District. Kim will be at the Pearl Anthropologie on May 12th, Mother’s Day, selling hand tied bouquets for lucky Moms.
We created some simple signage for the event, as well as some postcard size flyers for interested customers. Stop by and grab a reminder! More importantly — stop by on May 12th and grab a fresh bouquet for your deserving Mama!
The best thing about designing wedding invitations is getting to be a part of my closest friends’ weddings in a very BIG and very special way. Courtney’s was extra special because it is my first published floral design. You guys know I like floral, right?
She described her wedding as “english garden”. An inspiration board followed:
And then drawing after drawing of rose toned buds on olive toned branches — heaven. Not to mention an all day paper cutting party with the bride herself (we printed and cut the reception cards by hand).
Contact me any time to request rates for invite or announcement design!
I’ve decided it’s time to start a new series over here. I spend A LOT of time gathering source material for my projects. I’d love to say I’m purely “inspired” by the works I find. But, honestly, I’m freaking jealous. Why did’t I think of that?
So, I’m going to start featuring works I am turning green over. The first of many are these incredible, folk inspired prints by dekanimal. Drool.
