I am currently designing wedding invitations and I have been looking at a lot of companies’ invitation designs for inspiration. One of the qualities that I’m loving is the use of foil. Adding foil to some of the type or pattern of a simple design adds a really beautiful touch. I wasn’t sure if using foil in my designs could be done at home without some sort of special printer or technique, but I was wrong! I watched this video last night where designer Jennifer McGuire demonstrated 5 different ways to add foil to your designs. The last technique, using a laser printer and laminator seems like the best option out of the five. This is something I would really like to try, if not for my wedding invitations, definitely in future projects.
My name is Sarah Tucker. For my last graphic design class in college, my awesome professor, Kathy, had each student in the class create a blog. We had required posts about certain topics and our finished projects. I’m grateful for these past assignments, because I have never been much of a writer, or a blogger but I am learning that posting about what I’m learning or interested in right now is pretty fun. It’s a great way to document progress on work, comment on research, and share ideas. With that being said, I hope to continue using this blog, sharing with you my current projects/interests and anything else that might be worth a post!
