It’s amazing what a simple brief and a bit of creativity will come up with!

For the past four to five years I have been supplying stationery for my gorgeous customer Leonie who is a funeral celebrant.  In dealing with her via emails and over the phone, she always comes across as a lovely, genuine, caring person, and as anyone who has been involved in organising or attending the funeral of someone you love will know, the celebrant makes a huge difference as to how the day unfolds, and very often, they are the person who makes an extremely difficult day that little bit easier by their caring and assistance.

Well I was excited to receive an email from Leonie a couple of weeks ago, advising that she was taking on an additional role as a wedding celebrant and would like a new business card.  The brief was pretty simple – “a rose or roses, in pink or red, use a couple of typefaces, maybe a bit of colour”.  So off I went … looking for the perfect rose.

I chose 12 images to send to Leonie to view, but one stood out.   I made the suggestion that we make her calling card a non- typical shape – a good way for it stand out amongst the crowd, and the rose arbour image worked perfectly for a square card.  So we played around with typefaces and colour of typefaces, and this is what we ended up with.  I should probably have photographed the calling cards before I put them in the cello bag, as it’s caused a little colour flare, but you can see the end result.  Customer happy – tick. 

So if you’re based in Melbourne and looking for a funeral celebrant, or a wedding celebrant – Leonie Adams comes highly recommended.  :-)

(BTW – if you’re after this type of personalised design work get in touch with me, as it can’t be organised via the website – a brief needs to be provided and pricing discussed.)
