Yesterday’s Myddleton Road Market was utterly gorgeous. All of the lovely locals were out in full force, and I met some very talented and clever fellow artist/makers.
Enjoying a cheeky half courtesy of Bohem Brewery and basking in the long awaited sunshine, I was hit with some inspiration; I’m going to FINALLY spring clean my stock, and spruce up my branding and packaging which I’m at it.
I love my multi-image business cards, but have long hankered after a logo, something punchy and bright and simple. I’ve been working on some in quieter moments but none of them were setting my world on fire, then when my Ink & Word paintings got such a warm reception at the market I had a proper lightbulb moment. The result were these:
I know I’m biased; but I LOVE this design. I feel like it really encompasses what I’m all about. Whales: check; ridiculous colours: check; ink: check check check.
These were made with painting scraps and a nifty white gel pen. But when I get home I’m feeling inspired to create a digital version and send off the design to the lovely people at Moo who can turn these into some spiffy stickers.
I’ll wait until those arrive to unveil my full revamp, as this blog post is beginning to ramble. Don’t forget I’ve got a couple of markets this summer, do come and say hi, it is so satisfying meeting internet people in real life!
