I have resigned my email signature.
I have just started a new blog that will showcase just photography: kassandraphotography.wordpress.com.
I am so glad that after I post the image I can go in and edit when the post was added to that the dates match when the photographs were taken. 🙂
I recently bought 10 different types of flowers and pots to plant them in so I could add some colour to my backyard. After planting I was very upset at how crappy the flower tags were. I will not show the originals because they were that bad. They were all red, had a crazy huge logo and the text for each flower was small, upper case and white on red. These tags were more about the company who grew them than about the individual flowers. I had to change this – design tags that were all about the flowers and not me.
As a graphic designer and photographer I started with photographing my new flowers. After getting the photographs off my camera I had to select all the best photographs, about 10 minutes. I spent about 15 minutes getting a rough template together that has the shape, clipping mask all ready to go and the text in place. Using the ‘template’ and the selected photographs, typing in the name, changing colours etc took about 20 minutes for all the tags. So basically I made 10 flower tags in about 45 minutes. Below is 8 of the 10 tags:
Once I printed them all I cut them out and laminated them and then cut them out (again). Below are the flower tags as they are displayed in the pots:
I have already had some friends and family mistake these flower tags for being the tags that came with the flowers since they are so well designed and professional looking. I smile because this is what I do.
Finally after some time I have an identity ready for print. Speaking of which the files have all been uploaded to the printer and going to be printed and delivered within the month! That should be exciting to see it all!
I have put in an order for these items:
- Sticky notes (like post-its)
- Stamp (self inking with just logo in black)
- Outdoor Banner (90.2 cm x 50.8 cm)
- Return Address stickers
These items should all arrive by the end of the month. I got a good deal and get all these items for just under $50 delivered to my door. I save heaps because the company was doing free uploading of designs.
I will photograph the items when they arrive. Another full identity done by Kassandra.
