Pin of the Week | Hunters Alley

delphine pinterest pin of the week hunters alleyThis week’s Pin of the Week is super exciting. Have you heard One Kings Lane has a sister site? Like a cool younger sister who moved to LA on a whim, wears the coolest vintage clothes, knows where the best thrift stores are, and sips chai tea lattes (iced, with almond milk) all day.  HUNTERS ALLEY is just for design lovers. It connects shoppers and sellers with beautiful treasures. I’m in love!

Vintage Lace Wedding Invitations Haute off the Press

vintage lace wedding invitation by delphineI’m so pleased to introduce a brand NEW design: Vintage Lace. It was inspired by a stunning piece of heirloom lace that Trish brought in as a photo shoot prop. The lace dates back to the late 1800s! Everyone in the studio just fell in love with the gorgeous lace pattern and all of the designers here at Delphine thought it would make a beautiful wedding invitation. It’s shown here flat printed, but how stunning would it be letterpressed?

Mint Wedding Inspiration

Mint Wedding Inspiration via DelphineIt’s no wonder mint’s popularity endures. It’s fabulous in any season and looks amazing as the main color or paired with just about any other hue (though we admit we love mint paired with neutrals and butter yellow best). Mint adds a certain calming and cooling sensation on such a big day. Though it’s trendy now, mint is truly a classic, versatile shade. We just adored finding these minty fresh ideas!

Chromatic & Co. Paper Goods | Branding by Delphine

Stationery company Chromatic & Co. branding by DelphineOf all the branding projects I’ve worked on over the last few years, this one is most near and dear to my heart. As any designer can tell you, designing for yourself is nearly impossible. After many starts and stops, crumpled sketches, head banging, hand wringing, and second guessing I’m beyond thrilled to present our new brand, Chromatic & Co.

It’s our newest paper adventure, and the focus is all about color. Inspired by the golden age of advertising, and the trappings of a graphic design studio circa 1959, the brand has a decidedly retro vibe. You can check out the inspiration board we’ve been using at the studio to help guide our new brand on our Project Chromatic board on Pinterest.

Check back soon for snapshots of our new business cards, press kits, and other collateral. Meanwhile, please pay Chromatic & Co. a visit online, and by all means, follow ChromaticCo on Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook, too! (Instagram & Vine coming soon).

Chromatic and Co. logo and branding by DelphineUPDATE: 5/17/2013: just got word that this logo won a graphic design award from HOW Magazine. Yippee!

Prop Closet Treasure: Vintage Office Supplies

Vintage stapler and Parker Quink Ink from DelphineI’m a sucker for vintage office supplies. I can’t get enough of the vintage packaging — the simplicity is charming. I like to pick stuff like this up at flea markets and Goodwill (and friends and family’s junk drawers) with the excuse of “oh, I can use this for a photo shoot.”

Word is the release was pushed to Spring 2013 —boooo— so we’ll have to make due with re-reading (again) the book until then, and watching the 1974 film (again).

Duke | Font Geek

font love duke via delphineI’m working on some fun new projects, including a bunch of informal invitations, and DUKE has really been put to work on the new stuff. The chiseled typeface by James T. Edmondson has a vintage vibe, kind of like my favorite dive bar. Another amazing font published by the geniuses at Lost Type. All designers get 100 percent of the donations their font receives. Yay for designers making mon-ay!!!! If you download the font (and you should) don’t forget to pay for it ; )

Copasetic | Font Geek

Copasetic Free Font via DelphineThe entire Delphine studio is crazy excited for the new Great Gatsby film. It’s Brelyn’s favorite book, and one of mine, too. I just re read it, and now I see optometrist signs everywhere.

Needless to say, in anticipation of the movie we’re getting serious 1920s fever and are designing up a whole slew of 20s themed wedding invitations. One of the fonts we’re using a bunch is Copasetic. The Art Deco style works great for our 20s style invitations. The font is free, by the way. You’re welcome ; )
