Hallmark Project

It's definitely true when people say that weddings = stress!
I've chosen to do wedding gift ranges for my project with Hallmark and after 10days into it I have only just begun to start drawing and getting my thoughts together.
So many ideas, inspirations and influences but I think I am finally starting to get somewhere, phew!

Having done alot of market research I have found that alot of wedding gift ranges are kept quite safe; plain, neutral colour palettes, florals, bows and floaty fonts. So, I've decided I am going to try something new, bring in a little colour and more interesting imagery.
My moodboard shows the look I am going for - a vintage feel using photographs from my trip to paris and old family weddings combined with hand drawn imagery florals, jewellery, shoes, hats, bows, silverware, cake stands ettc. to create interesting, quirky collaged designs.
(images of this and my drawing sheets to be posted soon!)

And my beautiful Valentine's floral arrangement may have to be included somewhere!
