intern inspiration: arts + crafts.

Craft

My mom upcycles old pieces of jewelry, beads and small figurines and creates one of a kind picture frames. In between mid-terms today I went back to my house and started picking through some of the trinkets to make my own. I haven’t started gluing them onto the frame yet. If it turns out anything like my moms does, it’ll be pretty! And might even become a Christmas gift!

rebrand project.

In my advertisement class we are doing a rebrand project. We chose to rebrand the Philadelphia Seaport Museum. It’s a group project and I was in charge of all the sea creature illustrations. My favorite part is the small glass bottle with a treasure map rolled up inside. The project has a few other elements to it but here is some of what I have been working on so far.

dana + matthew were married last weekend at church of christ the king, followed by a reception at the glamorous park savoy estate. dana went for a wintry slate blue color palette accented with branches and berries. we painted a wash of cool blue watercolor on the letterpress invitations to create a handmade luxe look. each guest received a slightly different invitation truly making them one of a kind. the invitation and inserts were tied together with a silvery blue dyed silk ribbon, gold chord and finished with a wooden tag. the bride designed the monogram herself and we engraved it into the wooden circle for a very personal touch. the suite was mailed out in a pale gray envelope with slate blue addressing. we wish these sweet newly weds nothing but the best ahead!!

Thanksgiving break.

During my five days off from school for thanksgiving I needed a break from the computer screen and school work. I’ve been wanting to try sewing and never found any time for it. I first drew out a design in illustrator, printed it, placed fabric overtop of the paper and traced the design. Sewing is a lot more time consuming than I thought. I am anxious to see what it looks like at the end!

loveleigh’s latest: samantha + dirk.

sam and dirk fell in love while on an archeological dig in italy, how cool is that?! they recently invested in a 100 year old farmhouse in valley forge, pa, restored it and had their friends and family join them for a wedding to celebrate. here are their bold, mixed font save the date postcards to exhibit their not-so-boring personalities. we look forward to sharing their colorful invitation and wedding day materials with you next!

Meet Amber

Hi everyone, I’m Amber O’Brien! And this is my dog, Odie. I am loveleigh’s new intern! I am currently a senior graphic design student at West Chester University. After high school I attended Delaware County Community College and was unsure of what major I wanted to pick. I’ve always loved art so I decided to take some graphic design classes and I fell in love with it! After graduating with my associates I than transferred to West Chester to get my bachelor’s. I am so excited to be loveleigh’s intern and gain as much experience as I can! Each Friday though my fall semester I will be blogging and sharing with you some of my projects that I am working on. Have a great weekend!
