Jasmine's Mini Set

Happy Friday! TGIF!! I've got a lot to post, but thought I'd start the weekend off with the lovely Jasmine's set! Jasmine needed a few things to get her marketing set rolling. She came to me with her logo and wanted to design a few complimentary pieces. We worked on a packaging sticker, blog header, digital negative holder and her trifold brochure. I love how her logo pops off the dark color and the lighter green gives off a fresh feeling. The green makes the think of all things spring and truth be told … I'm really ready for spring!!

This spring is a little more special than past years. My brother and his wife are expecting and due in a few weeks! I'll finally have my first niece or nephew on my side of the family. There are a boatload on my husband's side, but I'm looking forward to a little boy or girl to spoil!! My baby is three (sniff), so it's been a long time.

Enjoy your weekend!!

Whooo's Set is this?

I couldn't resist! I've been waiting to blog about Trish's set. It's been a LONG week plagued with illness at our household. Luckily not kid-related (quick … knock on wood!), but take both parents out of the equation for a few days and things get interesting. Let's just say the kiddos may have had cereal for dinner more than once this week.

So, Trish's marketing set … I think the world of Trish! We met through the Explore workshop and have kept in touch ever since. This summer marks two years. It's been fun to watch her grow as a photographer. I love seeing the images of her children and how they've grown. All three are destined to be heartbreakers someday!

We started off with something a little softer in mind and ended up going a different direction. I'm so glad we did! I really like the deep, rich colors, but they still have that punch that catches your attention.

The coolest news … I get to meet up with not only Trish, but a group of fabulous girls from the same Explore workshop. A major meetup is taking place in June. I can't even begin to say how excited I am! Trish, make sure you bring me one of your cards. :)

Stacie's Pretty Set!

Happy Time Change! (not really but if I pretend to like it, maybe I'll adjust faster!) I wanted to share the logo and set I did for Stacie. When I first met Stacie, she sent tons of samples of styles she liked. It mostly consisted of decorating and furniture samples. It's a good way to express your taste and what you're looking for. I'd like to hire Stacie to be my personal shopper. Take a peek at her set. Soft and sweet!

More blogging to come this week. I'm wrapping up more custom sets, getting all of the paperwork sent to those ready to go and finalizing new, initial set designs … it's a busy time of year! Spring forward everyone!!

Lots of Logos

I haven't blogged in a while … since my birthday actually. Did you think I'd forgotten?? You know … being over the hill and all! Just kidding! Things have been rolling at MadiLu Designs. Custom marketing sets are my niche. Sometimes though, I'll just do a custom logo. Here are a few I'd like to share. Some of these are rolling into custom sets and some of these have sets that are just about finished. I'll blog those again later once it's a wrap. Blues seem to be a trend, but that goes hand in hand with the Pantone color of the year (turquoise).

In other news, our family got a puppy, a Jack Russell Terrier. I'd managed to maintain a nearly pet-free household for almost 14 years. They must have caught me at a weak moment and last week we rescued a puppy from Field of Dreams. Welcome Fender … you're in for quite a treat from this bunch!!
