February Wrap-up


This has been a hectic week. If you follow me on twitter, you know I have been deeply entrenched in the Eggplant War. Who knew Eggplant (color) would be so difficult to define and match?! Trying to color match a piece of colored paper and an inkjet print-out to a color digital press printout has proved to be my biggest challenge as a freelance designer. The Eggplant War has given me a crash course in vendor diplomacy, a refresher in color theory, and reminder of Murphy’s Law. I have lost sleep, fallen behind schedule, and questioned my sanity. There have been many lessons learned. The most important? Large areas of dark, saturated color are NOT a good idea. I hope pray that my clients are pleased with the final product.

I am in the midst of creating invitation mock-ups using these gems. It’s starting to look like purple is the color of the year.



I have also made a concerted effort to participate in activities that were not work-related. Here are some quick shots to give you an idea of what I’ve been up to. There will be full posts later.

Sadly, I have no photos from two different lunch dates. I discovered my new favorite Thai restaurant, Sompun Thai, with Amber. I also celebrated Ivy’s birthday at Granville Cafe at the Americana. Joshua has gotten so big and I have the sore arms to prove it.

That’s my week in a nutshell. I’ll be back once I’ve caught up with work and sleep.

  1. It’s amazing how much you learn on these projects. I feel like every invite we’ve designed has been a huge learning experience. I know the limitations of our Gocco, our letterpress and our printer. It’s amazing how much you learn when things screw up. 🙂
