I’ve been a bit under the weather the past couple of days, so I guess I should take advantage of the few hours at home to post about some fun stuff I’ve been working on. I was fortunate to have Michelle Miller (Fickleknitter Design) contact me to design a postcard and trade show banner for her booth at TNNA (The National Needlearts Association) a couple of weeks ago. Michelle is a fantastic knit designer, who specifically tries to create pieces that can be made with one skein, which is great, because I know had a habit of falling in love with luxury yarn and purchasing only one, for which I never find a good. I’m sure I’m not the only knitter who does that. Plus, it’s just nice to make something small out of fiber that is fancy and luxurious, without breaking the bank to get 8 skeins for a giant sweater.
Anyway, she wanted to go in a more typographic direction, with pink and gray being her booth colors, so design-away I went, and this is what I came up with. I hear it got a great reception at the show. Shortly thereafter, she asked if I could put together a logo based on a similar look as the banner.
I’m really pleased with how these pieces have turned out, but I’m even more excited to be designing her first book! I can’t wait to dig in and show it off!
