Susan and Chris’ wedding was stunning, and I am so excited to see it featured in the Weddings Unveiled spring issue! Lauryn (Lauryn Prattes Events) did an outstanding job planning their special day; and I am thankful and honored to be a part of the incredibly talented group of vendors that helped to make this wedding so inspiring and memorable for all who attended. The calligraphy I did included spot calligraphy for the invitation suite, a full calligraphy menu, envelope addressing, table numbers, signage, and seating cards. Poppy Gray Designs then used the calligraphy to create the final look for all of the paper goods.  I am so in love with this color palette and how everything turned out!SusanChris191_027blogSusanChris194_035blogSusanChris216_083blog

I have had the pleasure of working with Kristy on many wonderful projects over the years, and was thrilled when she asked me to do the lettering for her new logo and website.  Kristy’s company, Momental Designs, offers unique handmade watercolor wedding invitations that are oh so beautiful!! The lettering I designed for her logo and website elements are spot on – sophisticated and fresh, with some lightness and flair. I love how it all came together!    

Be sure to grab your favorite bev and browse through all of the galleries and videos on the website – major eye candy!! I am also so honored to be one of Momental’s preferred calligraphers – thank you dear Kristy!

I will be taking a mini break from custom logo designs to make room for some other projects; and I am super excited to be working with Kristy on her very first book!! EEEKKKK!!! It’s going to be awesome and I hope to write about the process and take you along the journey with me!

I am so excited to finally share MM Ink’s new online look with you!!!

For some time now, I felt I needed to further define my style, who I am as an artist/calligrapher, and create a vision guide for MM Ink. So last summer, I hired the AWESOME gals at Braid Creative to help me create a roadmap for my business, and put all my thoughts and ideas into clear and concise words and action steps that I can use today and in the future. It was an amazing experience working with Kathleen and Liz – they listened, asked questions, listened some more, then delivered a great brand platform that truly represents me, MM Ink, and my love for this art form and what I do. Thank you so much Kathleen and Liz!!!!

Before I completed the consulting sessions with Braid, I knew I wanted Leslie to design my new website. I really admired her work and bookmarked web designs she did for other creatives (as well as her own website) and knew that her clean and classic style would be perfect for the site’s new look.  And Leslie is so creative and such a delight to work with – SO patient, willing to try any idea I sent her way (and make it even better!!), ALWAYS pleasant….just absolutely wonderful!!!!! Thank you so much Leslie for all your hard work to make this site SO lovely!

Leslie offers full brand packages so I decided to have her design all of my packaging and stationery as she pulled the web design elements together. All of the pieces complemented each other perfectly! The business cards and note cards were letterpress printed by Farmwood Press, and Chris did such a fabulous job (as always)!!!  And Chris’ wife,  Katie took these beautiful photos (and many on the website).
