A health counselor wanted to express the importance of healthy eating being only one element of "healthy living." That health is nourishing all things: mentally, physically and spiritually.
[Her name, unsurprisingly, is not "Nom Nom."]
I would do things differently now with this card, but the woman who hired me to do it was my first "client," and I was just over the moon with her having faith in me.
First lesson: never put a full-bleed border on a business card. It will most certainly look wonky if it's not printed perfectly perfect.
The one that started it all.
(Do I present it upright? Sideways? I don't know.)
People loved it because it was so compact–inexpensive to print, didn't have tons of filler, got the point across, no wasted space.
Pragmatic invites for pragmatic people.
Our Tenth Anniversary featured the timeline of our relationship on a double-sided quad-fold card, total length 34 inches?
I had to do some fancy figurin' to get it to print; we didn't have enough money to have it professionally done, so I printed each side twice, in two different directions, upside-down and right-side up.
Problem solving at its finest, folks.
I found this amazing medieval painting in an illuminated manuscript (online, but you can't steal from the Twelfth Century), which I then adjusted to mimic the features of the bride and groom.
Obsessive, and totally bonkers.
The envelope had a poem printed on the inside:
Give me a kiss, and to that kiss a score;
Then to that twenty, add a hundred more:
A thousand to that hundred: so kiss on,
To make that thousand up a million.
Treble that million, and when that is done,
Let us kiss afresh, as when we first begun.
Robert Herrick (1591-1674)
I'll admit that it still drives me crazy that the author was not contemporary with the medieval painting, but I'm pretty sure no one else noticed.
