I have another blog which is about food. Of course, don’t we all.

 

About Sharing Dinner

Simple easy wholesome recipes from two people who make and eat simple easy wholesome food. We do not want to spend more time cooking then we do eating. We eat mostly seasonal vegetarian food.

invoice design

My new invoice design. This was designed in Libre Office Calc aka Excel. The top and bottom are pictures created in Illustrator.  It picks up values from a pivot table and has made my life better. The pattern down the side is cells with fills. Suffice to say this was not an easy piece of design to work with but I am very happy with the outcome.

postcard design

A postcard I designed to post out to friends and family. I decided to make the text “cheesy postcard style” which I enjoyed creating. I am also riding my bike wearing a dress that designed and sewed.

The secret with the text was the selection tool to get space inside the type and deleting the inverse from photographs. These shapes of photograph are in layers behind the black text. I also used the selection and expand options to apply a white edge on the inside and the outside of the text. This was the most time consuming part of the process.

This was a fun, simple project which only took me an hour from start to print!

Detail

 

These were commissioned by Harry to fill a few prerequisites:

  • could not be too big in the room but big enough to fill a full wall
  • had to create contrast in his lounge with red-brown-maroon colour palette
  • could be versatile enough to be changed at will – not a static diptych
  • modern and interesting
  • simple
  • blur the lines between art and design

Each panel is a 50 x 90 cm pre-made canvas. The relationship between colours employees Fibonacci numbers for balance. Due to using this number set each panel is balanced and when adding the panels to each other in any formation continued the number set.
