I'm having a "creative Thursday," getting lost in pretty things and gaining some inspiration. I try to take some time to do this once a week to refresh my brain and, well, stay motivated at the office! Trust me, it helps!
Ever since a friend posted a link on his fb to the CUTE boutique branding co. ( Imagineria Creative, go look-see) in the Dallas area, I've reawakened my love for typography and plain ol' good design. This is one of my favorite brand identities from Imaginaria:

I've always had an obsession with pretty papers, old letters and mail in general. Something so romantic and experiential about feeling paper. In the digital age, it's a refreshing tribute to a simpler time. The feeling of letterpress, silky papers and texture add so much to a brand. I was sure to incorporate lots of romance and texture into our wedding invites:
I've been in the studio, designing some creations for my poor neglected Etsy shop, and will incorporate some fun and textural packaging. Because, after all, that's what makes buying handmade so special. Here are a few more looks that inspired me. (All from behance.com ... a great resource for graphic design inspiration.)
