My little sister is all-around rad. She keeps us up-to-speed on things like hot new tracks and what the cool kids are up to. She is also an exceptionally talented (officially certified) hairdresser! When the opportunity came along to assist the amazing Rubi Jones at Alt Summit a few weeks back, we had to whip up some new business cards! I thought a couple shiny, gold (always!) bobby pins might come in handy for conference attendees, so we had the cards drilled to slip on a nice X-marks-the-best-hairdresser-lady.
I also printed the X with a spot varnish so that when the bobby pins are removed, the design still holds up.

In a shameful showing of my true greedy colors, I confess I had hoped from time to time that my brother Jeffrey would never marry. He was too much fun to have to ourselves in his bachelor state—always down for a week of emergency mannying or last minute beach vacation. BUT—we didn’t count on him winning the lady lotto—I couldn’t be more thrilled he found Brittan. Their vision for the wedding—simple, natural, beautiful—also describes the beautiful bride perfectly.
Look at that shimmer! When designing this suite, I became obsessed with a typeface used by a nearby boutique, Cloak & Dagger. My brilliant sister Jana casually offered to draw the elusive font for me, and then— type goddess that she is, delivered it within a day. There is a reason she is my favorite collaborator.
Brittan had always dreamed of a fall wedding at the ski resort she spent so much time at with her family growing up, and because they didn’t want to wait a whole year the only date available was Friday the 13th! They decided to run with it and give the day new meaning. Kraft favor boxes were filled with lemon drops, the bride’s favorite candy. So happy for these crazy kids, and pretty happy for myself for scoring lotsa boxes of lemon drops plus a gem of a sister-in-law.
