I have been working studiously on my color forecast for about 3 weeks now, I am so pumped for it's release and have a REALLY EXCITING way of presenting the color direction! I'm hoping I'll be done next month, but it's a pretty extensive project.
I've picked up an extra project for designing wedding programs for the Cloninger-Wilson wedding. She's needing 150 of them, but she needs them by the 22nd of this month. So, I've estimated about a week turn over time. It's a tight deadline, but the majority of it is just type placement and since the design has already been established, it should be somewhat easy. It's funny how I always think it's going to be more simple than it really turns out to be. Then I'm up until 4am the morning before the deadline and think, I am such a tired idiot.
Presently I have been finished my business card project for Lucky You Films, LLC. They finished their movie, "The Last Passport" in 30 days for a budget of only $5,000.00. It's pretty incredible!
I had a great time doing their logo, I went old skool and decided to paint the rooster on canvas, then scanned it in and combined it with an illustrator line art version of a sunrise/film reel sunshine background. Their business cards were created from a special die-cut that I had made by a local company here in Charlotte. It has the typical square end and then the other end is a half circle. The paper used was the new and beautifully textured Neenah Paper, Eames Furniture Weave texture. It's only been out for a year and I jumped on it!
So, that's my life right now...things have slowed down slightly, but I feel overwhelmed because I have to get the following done. Have to, have to, have to!!!
1) Work on my Forecast
2) Photograph the wedding packages that I have done presently.
3) Price the wedding packages.
4) Publish/Sell on Etsy.
Those are my general thoughts right now...how is everyone else?
