When a girl is working out and tightens her ponytail you know it’s about to go DOWN👇🏻 No lie I haaate the workout I did today 😂🤷🏼♀️ Like it’s probably my least favorite I’ve ever done!! But seeing the girls in our #MuscleUpButtercup bootcamp straight CRUSHING week 2 pushed me through it ✊🏻👭 Ever think about what you could accomplish with a tribe of badass babes behind you? I promise it’s so much more than you could ever imagine 🔮👀✨ So what are you afraid of?? Always here to help you feel a little more fearless ❤️
Thank you Jeff and Karen for all your trust with Matthew’s BM!! ... “Here’s the recipe for planning an amazing Bar Mitzvah celebration: Find a great venue that is unique and has that “cool” factor and then ensure that the entire team—from the owners, the party planner, the designer, the graphic artist, the chef, the bartenders, the DJ and MC, the waiters, the dancers, the photographer and all the professional staff-is committed to making your party the most special, the most fun, the most memorable and the most enjoyable. Next, trust them!!! While its not so easy to find that perfect place with just the right people, we can assure you of the answer: SPACE!!! We recently celebrated our son Matthew’s Bar Mitzvah at Space!!From Elvira and Jim to Sara and Lindsey, no detail was left unattended to. Their execution surpassed our expectations in every way. They thought of everything and we mean everything. Space was decorated with every sport our son loves and not just in the typical way. In fact, nothing at SPACE is typical or ordinary. Everything is just better and cooler than you experience elsewhere. All the food was terrific- a special shout out to the sushi (top notch). The MC was awesome and made the whole party feel personal. The dancers were literally the best we have seen at a Bar Mitzvah anywhere. Also, we wouldn’t want to forget Chris Herder, photographer extraordinaire. Chris captured the feeling of the celebration and was so easy to work with.👍👍👍Bottom line: as we were leaving the Bar Mitzvah, our son turned to us and said excitedly: “That party was INSANE!” From our perspective as parents: Mission Accomplished, all thanks to Elvira and her team at SPACE! Karen and Jeff Isaacs”. ❤️❤️❤️#bestclients#clientsthatarefamily#clientsthatbecomefamily @spaceevents @spaceeventgroup #grateful#thankyou#dreamteam#spaceents#barmitzvah#party#partyplanner#catering @chefemrah #entertainment @emceecharlie #graphicdesign @lindseyatspace #graphicdesigner#spacefamily#onestopshop#wedoitall#wedoitbest#wedoitforyou#partyplanning
Animal Hospital, Company Name: Hampton Cove.
The Brief: "Hello!
We're thrilled to see what amazing work you can do for the Hampton Cove Animal Hospital. The Hampton Cove area is known for it's mountains, so we'd love to incorporate some mountain(s) in the logo somehow, maybe in the background. The main focus of course should be pets/veterinary/animal hospital. If you look around the internet you can find a lot of great examples of animal hospital logos and we'd love something similar to them with the uniqueness of using mountains to represent the area we're located in! Thanks!"
LOGO DESIGN TIP
Inspiration Isn't Easy
When people ask us where we find inspiration, the short answer is searching online and visiting sites like Instagram...and Behance. But that's just the start of it and sometimes we actually avoid it.
The truth is, some of the greatest artists don't wait around to be inspired. They just start working. Jump in. Sketch. Think. Try. Fail. Try. Fail. Try. Succeed.
Thinking in abstract and unique ways can be ruined by too much exposure to other visually stimulating logos and designs. For example, let's say you search for "animal hospital logos" and you find several featuring the color blue. Your brain may only start thinking in blue because it's being repeated over and over, and sometimes this can be bad for gaining your own inspiration.
In all, it's completely fine to head to the internet to get some ideas, but it shouldn't be your first step and it certainly shouldn't be your only method of idea generation.
As a graphic designer I've learned to visually break down a design to see it's foundational shapes. I then build from there adding all the necessary details. That's really how I learned how to draw back in middle school. Shapes and silhouettes first, and all the pretty stuff after.
After a whole week of unknowingly drinking DECAF coffee 🤦🏼♀️ I’m ready to see what I can accomplish with a little help from my old trusty friend, caffeine. It seems to be working so far, I mean, I am currently jotting notes in 3 different notebooks. Does that mean I’m extra organized, or under organized? Hmmm
I suppose this new desk might help things along too
Tuesday is my Saturday and I'm happy to spend it working on a number of new projects. Time to get going on things for clients, but first, a shot of the progress I'm making on art direction for the solo EP I'm releasing soon.
Sushi Bar, Company Name: Sakura.
The Brief: "Hey!
I own a sushi bar in downtown Los Angeles and looking for a fresh logo! The name of my shop is called Sakura. This means flowering cherry (blossom) tree, so I'd actually be cool with using a cherry blossom, but please don't feel that you need to use this, just an idea! I am definitely open to any other kind of sushi iconography. I do require that the name Sakura is included in the logo. Thanks!"
LOGO DESIGN TIP
Since there aren't any color requirements for this, you can use any color you'd like! With this in mind, remember that color can drastically change the tone of your logo.
Different colors will provoke different emotions, especially when it comes to food! We highly recommend you give this article (view full project to find link) a read...after you've appreciated this post of course!
