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.

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!
