I was so pleased to discover the line art version of the logo I designed for Bramble & Wild being used in such lovely ways, that I thought I would share some snaps from their Instagram page.

Grace’s beautiful blooms and stunning arrangements look ace in these kraft bags, adorned with the gold foiled line art logo.

I was also excited to see some of the shop’s beautiful stationery, with the logo peeping out…

As well as beautiful flowers, you’ll find lots of little gifts to entice you in. If you’re local, and you’re not familiar with Bramble & Wild, I urge you to go! It is a wonderful florist situated on Frome’s historic Catherine Hill, which is peppered with amazing independent shops, and certainly not your average high street.

Aux Deux Épis

Posted on: July 28th, 2013 by Dawn

I couldn’t have been happier when my good friend Izzy put me in touch with bakery and patisserie connoisseurs Holly and Christophe, who were in need of a new logo design. Aux Deux Épis (which translates as ‘The Two Wheat Ears’) is a beautiful looking Boulangerie Patisserie based in the Loire region in France. They produce a vast range of exquisite looking organic breads and pastries, which they sell from their shop, other local bakeries and a market stall in Saint Etienne, amongst others.

This project made me feel mouth-wateringly hungry, but (somehow), I was able to produce a new logo design for them and a promotional leaflet, which showcases their wonderful breads and lots of other important info.

All signs point to Lark Vintage

Posted on: July 6th, 2013 by Dawn

Yesterday, I spent the day pretending to be a sign painter. I have never claimed to be good at painting (much the opposite), but I was available in a sign-making emergency, and Lark Vintage owner Hayley said she ‘had a lot of faith’ in me, so we skipped down to the local art shop and I got started on this lovingly hand-made, charmingly wonky shop sign. I definitely got the most pleasure from painting the little flower motifs (after the fluorescent-pink paint disaster had been abolished).

We’re hoping to put some vinyl stickers of the complete logo on the windows, which I think will be a nice touch. What do you think?

Shop launch, tomorrow night at 6pm, 20 Paul Street, Frome! Be there! Also, Frome’s excellent open-air Super Market, which covers the entirety of the town centre, will be taking placed from 2pm. It’ll be my first one (as a customer. I am hoping to be a trader soon!), so I’m very excited. See you there!

Introducing Lark Vintage

Posted on: May 20th, 2013 by Dawn

So, Poot, that lovely vintage shop I mentioned a few posts ago, is soon to transform into Lark Vintage, an exciting new addition to Catherine Hill in Frome. My friend Hayley must trust me a great deal, as I’ve been put in charge of the new shop logo and promotional materials. Here is a promotional flyer I designed to shout about the up-coming opening:
