Charleson locals Ben Ross and Jeff Plotner of Brackish Bow Ties are redefining the traditional bow tie and have launched an awesome new trend: bow ties made from real feathers. The cool thing about feather bow ties is that no two are alike, since no two birds are alike. They’re an awesome look for groomsmen … in fact the whole thing started when Ben fashioned a turkey feather bow tie as a gift for his groomsman, Jeff. We’re obsessed!Pin It
It was such a pleasure to work with Tiffany to create a custom letterpress wedding invitation suite for her Lowcountry wedding. We modified our Robin design, enlisted the help of the talented Paige Tanenbaum for custom calligraphy, and letterpressed this beauty in lilac and gold inks on exquisite quartz shimmer paper.
I’m always a sucker for party goodies, and so is Tiffany! So we printed up some lovely cocktail napkins for her reception. We repeated the Robin pattern and foil stamped lilac napkins with sparkly silver foil, to pick up the candlelight shimmering through mercury glass. I cannot wait to see photos of Tiffany & Taylor’s special day!
Last week I visited the South Carolina Aquarium with my son after school one afternoon. We were both smitten with Liberty, a rescued Bald Eagle. Isn’t she a stunner? I love the lemon color of her beak.Pin It

I’m soooo happy to report that we FINALLY have a meeting space here at our new downtown Charleston, SC digs. We found a vintage drafting table to serve as a conference area … and, drumroll … stools to sit upon! Want to come for a studio tour, check out wedding invitations, talk about graphic design projects? Drop in any time!Pin It
This amazing store front is around the corner from our downtown Charleston, SC studio. I haven’t had a chance (yet) to stop into Seafood Alley, but it claims to be “Fresh & Above Da’ Rest” … so I think a field trip is in order.Pin It
I couldn’t help but to snap a picture. The pretty combo of the sun faded orange, turquoise and green colors together made me smile.
