I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I am thankful to be alive and for having my loved ones by my side.
Be thankful for what you have, but strive on to accomplish what you dream of having and stay positive!
It’s been quite awhile since I’ve made illustrations. Like many people, Fall is my favorite season of the year; it’s even in my name but we’ll get to that later… There are so many things I like about Fall such as cooler weather, rain, cozy clothes, holidays, decorations, warm vibrant colors and especially the grand beauty of mother nature among other things. There’s so much elegance around the end of the year, I just love it!
I know I’m a bit late, but Happy New Year everybody!!
I just want to share with you some name tags I made last month for my Christmas presents to some of my family & friends.
Here are the tags that I’ve designed and printed. The program I used to make them is Adobe CS5 Illustrator. I’ve hand drawn some of the illustrations via a Wacom tablet, but some things such as the snowflakes, trees, and bow were symbol patterns that came with the program. I found it such a time saver, for I didn’t have too much time to draw everything myself. Therefore, I can’t take all the credit for everything.
I’ve cut out all the tags and folded them. Just need to hole punch the top so I can string a ribbon through to hang onto the presents! I’m quite happy with how they turned out. This is a view of the back of one of the tags with the snowflakes.
They’re all hole punched and ready to go! I’m a little bothered that the holes weren’t as centered as I intended them to be, but it’s not too bad.
I hope you enjoy what I’ve made as I enjoyed making them, and that it inspired you to make your own name tags for whatever gift-giving occasion it is. I know x-mas is already over, but there are many other occasions to give presents; i.e. Valentine’s day is coming soon next month, and there’s always birthday gifts to give. Why not add a nice touch to your gift wrapping with a fun custom name tag for the recipient?
Today is the first day of fall! I am so excited because it is my favorite season of all.
Here’s a little fun fact about myself, the ‘Thu’ in my name means ‘Fall’ in Vietnamese. Additionally, the ‘An’ means ‘peace’, so my name literally means ‘Autumn Peace’.
We all know that during the fall season one of the major things we notice most is the changing colors of the leaves. Therefore, I chose the Autumn leaves as a symbol for my identity brand. Hence why you see maple leaves as the background of this site and on my business card.
There are so many things about this season that I love. One being the beautiful warm colors of the leaves. Other things to love about Fall are cool breezy weather that’s perfect for getting cozy and cuddle with someone or something you love, fall decoration, pumpkins, Halloween, Thanksgiving, holiday season in general, stylish layered clothing, and again beautiful nature scenery just to name a few. What do you like about this gorgeous season?
I’ve just made a few updates on my Logos page and Stationery page, so please check that out and feel free to give me feedback. It is basically a logo and business card design that I made for a Genevieve Wines, a company that sells premium high-end wine. I had fun working with Genevieve, for I’ve always wanted to see what it’s like to be in the wine & tourism business.
I also have a separate portfolio page for Genevieve Wines on my Behance account if you want to see all my work related to that. Just click on the subtitle above to go to that page.
Thanks for coming by!
