The moment has finally come and your logo is ready to go! You open your email only to find your logo saved in a range of file formats. While it may seem overwhelming your designer is providing you with a variety of file formats to ensure you can utilize your logo to its full extent in print and online.
To make sense of the different file formats it’s helpful to start with a little background in design – but not too much I promise.
Back in January 2012 I started working for the Whistler Day Spa, we started by redesigning their email newsletter and then developed into a whole new brand design for the spa.
Recently we have been working on the design and development of a new website based on the WordPress framework, which will allow for easy updates to the websites content and price list.
This design of the new site reflects the new brand design, along with the professionalism and style of the spa itself. The site is easy to navigate and is uses a responsive design which allows it to be easily viewed on the go, using a mobile device.
Here are a couple of before/after shots..

In this Monday’s inspiration of the week I wanted to show how paper art and typography can be brought together for commercial uses such as, in advertising campaigns and magazine covers. Below are a few examples of the extremely talented Yulia Brodskaya, an artist and illustrator from Russia, but living in the UK.
Keeping with the paper art theme, I came across these super delicate pieces produced by Anastasia Elias a French illustrator. They are created by cutting up small paper shapes and sticking them inside toilet rolls, the scenes are then brought to life with the right lighting and photography. I love all the different scenes she creates.
