recent features

We've been featured on wedding blogs a couple times in the past few days. I hope that other brides will be inspired by some of the little things we did. Here are a few screenshots.

razorfish work | H&R Block 2009 banner ads

It started with this. One of the original storyboards I created for the 2009 H&R Block Online banner campaign. Okay, so banner ads aren't the coolest, but I think these are pretty fun. 
We wanted the design to be clean, simple, colorful. This concept for the look & feel was one of mine and I also designed 99% of the icons for the campaign.

thank you cards

Thank You Cards
I used some black and whites portraits from the wedding and printed the design in fun bright colors. They don't match the rest of the style I used for wedding stuff, except in the colors of the cards & envelopes.
Thank You Cards

Oh wait. You didn't get yours? It's coming. We're busy. And slow.

Thanks to KC for the photos.

once wed blog feature + bonus points

Emily over at Once Wed is featuring our wedding on Monday, and has posted a little preview here. AND I designed that ad for H&R Block at the top of the screenshot. Double whammy!

signs and programs

Church Fan Style Programs
Instead of programs we had church style fans. I think the guests appreciated them, sitting in the middle of a field in the august sun. I designed them in the same style as the invitations with, my fave, 2 sheep at the top.

KC, Pete, and I made these signs for the wedding. After this photo was taken, the girls and I attached a bunch of white balloons to it so that it looked like I was holding them.

Thanks to Kyle Hale for the 1st & 3rd photos and KC for the middle shot.
