Couture Wedding Maps: Destination Bali

Our studio works with clients all over the world, and this project is for a wonderful couple  Giok and Johan who contacted me from Malaysia and are getting married on the Indonesian island of Bali. It includes the calligraphy and illustration for a pocket fold design with a hand painted invitation, itinerary card and map.

The map is painted in watercolor and includes our signature Couture Maps kissing fish logo.

We supplied the digital files to her so she was able to oversee the printing and production locally. This option is great for overseas clients who are creative and wish to save on the expense of international postage and customs fees.

Couture Wedding Maps: Destination Big Sur

My wonderful clients Casey and Shelby were married at a dream destination, Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur. Their wedding map was created to show the different wedding locations and also included shuttle information for traveling around the area.

If you've never been to Post Ranch, it is a stunning retreat on the California coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Everything about it is perfection including a wonderful relaxing spa, the award winning restaurant Sierra Mar and the gracious staff. In the summer there is regular bus service to Big Sur from Monterey and Carmel, however, in the off season, it runs only on the weekends.

Parsons School of Design

One of my favorite professors at Parsons School of Design (now Parsons the New School for Design), illustrator Sergio Baradat, has created a beautiful, vibrant collection of tropical fruit stamps for the United States Postal Service.

As a student at Parsons, this image I created in Sergio's class, was the award winning illustration for the Parsons poster.
