Chalkboard and Sparkles Birthday Party Invitation
January 10 2014

I designed this "Chalkboard Sparkles" first birthday party invitation for a client recently. I love the pink & gold stars and birthday cake against the black chalkboard - this was totally the clients idea. I started with graphics from istockphoto and my art direction came from Miss Chelsea Abinante.

Unique & Alternative Holiday Designs for one cool client
December 30 2013

I design Holiday & Christmas cards for the same families year after year. I am honored that they think of me each year and allow me to do this. I wanted to share one particular awesome client, Rinny, and her past card designs. Each design is the result of a theme that reflects a facet of her own personal style.

It's nice to be able to design Christmas cards that aren't the usual traditional style.

Are Chalkboard Designs Still Cool?
November 07 2013

google image search chalkboard art collage

Every year there seems to be some sort of new card design trend. Last year it was the chalkboard. I'm wondering if it's still in style? I hope so because I personally LERVE it. I'm not sure how or why it started. In the past I remember seeing really fancy well designed boards in restaurants and boutiques and somehow maybe that spilled into card designs?

I am blown away and almost humbled by the organic typesetting going on in the above images. As a designer who is constantly creating on the computer, I feel that I am losing my natural God given artistic abilities (thank you Adobe & Mac). Maybe I need to paint that lonely hallway wall in black chalkboard paint and get down with some chalk. And than when someone says "I love that!", I can smugly reply "Pinterest".

Anyway, here are my own "chalkboard designs by Ian & Lola".

LOVE my new client!!
November 05 2013

I wanted to showcase a recent client friend of mine, Danielle Casseus. She took my designs and threw such an amazing party for her sweet baby girl McKayla (who is so cute she's almost edible!). She also owns her own business - check it out here.

I customized the Vintage Carnival designs for her event. To inquire, please send me an email :)

Vintage "Dumbo" Circus themed party by Ian & Lola
October 27 2013

Last year I was asked by a client to design a "vintage dumbo circus" themed birthday party collection for her daughter. I aways get slightly intimidated with custom design requests (yet I love & keep doing them all the time) because I never think I'm going to meet the clients design expectations. This was one of those times when the design came together almost perfectly. The neatest part for me is seeing how the client ends up utilizing the designs. You can see how she has an amazing eye for decor and party planning. I am so, so impressed with how well she did here. 




Cheers!

Owl Slumber Party Designs
October 23 2013

I LOVE the design ideas that my clients dream up. I've designed for Danielle for a few months now and she is just the sweetest. These designs are for her daughters 7th birthday Owl Slumber Party. She didn't want anything too babyish so I think this design is just perfect. I love the mix of colors and fonts. Shown here is the 5 x 7" Owl Slumber Party Birthday Invitation & coordinating Menu Tents. Contact me if interested!
