Congratulations to Lorien & John for their wedding across the pond this week! This lovely couple chose to use our Pictorial design with imagery to match their wedding at a beautiful country home. The soft blue-green and gray colors of this design have us dreaming of the English countryside in the spring.
Here at Sesame, we are big fans of 'the olden days'. That's not to say we don't move with the times...but we just love anything related to history, etiquette and tradition. So it's no wonder that we are glued to a certain British TV drama, set in a stately home. And it's no surprise that we were inspired to create a note card set that pays homage to English turn-of-the-century country living. For more details and to order, please visit our website shop here: British Home Stationery Set.
This set pairs vintage illustration with contemporary colors. What could be better?
And in case you need a hint as to the TV show we are referring to, this should refresh your memory:
Following on from our previous post, which highlighted our banner design, we wanted to show you another variation. We printed this Save the Date for a lovely couple with links to America and England! The bride had a mug which featured little flags from both countries so we used that as a starting point for the design!
The colors also pick up on the flag colors. We are so proud of how nicely this printed: the teeny tiny stars on the American flags are all perfectly defined!
The Spring has been busy at the studio, printing custom jobs like wedding stationery, business cards and note cards and also developing new items for our retail/wholesale line. We tend to be so busy designing and printing that we never get a chance to stop to post updates on our site and blog. Now that the busiest season is past, we're finally catching our breath and going back through our pictures to share details of the work we have been doing. We'll start with one of our favorite designs for a wedding taking place in London. We love the simple and clean type, with the British icons in the dusty blue and gray ink.
