Weekly moodboard: Happy New Year 2019

I’m so excited for what already promises to be a great year. I spent last week creating and scheduling a lot of content ready to get the ball rolling for today. I’m now into my third year of trading, which brought about the need to develop a business strategy, with the all-important marketing plan and financial forecasts. I want to create more content, push all my social medias to showcase client work and really step everything up. Alongside my personal plans for the brand to push my creativity by pairing my love for painting with branding and packaging design, I have some very exciting projects ahead for amazing brands and websites. As ever, I am incredibly lucky with my clients and looking forward to continue to work with my growing client base.

Here’s to a great year!

L-R (clockwise):

  1. This photo is one I found on Pinterest and unfortunately struggled to find the original blogger - let me know if you know her! I love the lines the satin is creating and the beautiful dark red - great inspiration for an illustration or two.

  2. How great is this? Unfortunately, I didn’t take note of the artist, but it’s such a beautiful composition and colour palette. I saw this image and it was the inspiration for the whole mood board.

  3. This logo is from one of my favourite designers to follow on Instagram: Stylishcreative. Nicola offers beautiful designs and a well-curated Instagram. I love the composition and use of shadows in this image.

  4. I love the colour palette and the beautiful art in this room. The rug is such a clever moment, adding depth and character. Source unknown.

  5. I am still loving stars after the Christmas trend! I love the tones in this image and the size of the stars and the little moon. Source unknown.

  6. I love the colour of the satin here and the pop of colour in this blogger’s heels. Paired with gold jewellery and a oversized jumper for a perfect composition. Source unknown.

  7. This is one of my favourite print designs for a while. I love the illustration and the colour palette. This is by Lise Mailman for the Ruban Collectif.

  8. Finally, a mix of handwritten and serif fonts for a beautiful design. Seems that that combination is going to remain one of my favourites for a while longer! I am definitely favourite the more signature-style fonts, however, as opposed to the more traditional calligraphy and modern-calligraphy styles. I like that they look like you’ve scrawled it down on a piece of paper in a hurry! They add a bit more personality to the design. This beautiful logo is from Manon Pontillo.
