Back To Basics

When you're looking to add some feeling to a print design you cant go past a custom made stamp, it looks great & really shows that some care has gone into making whatever it is you're making, whether it's an invitation a menu or maybe some company marketing to gain new clients. Thinking of fresh ideas has so many benefits for your business, not only does it keep you excited and engaged it also passes this excitement on to your clients & potential clients, so browse the net, look at inspirational sites & jot down some ideas to freshen up your business. 

I've just received my custom made company logo stamp, which I'm pretty excited about, time for some marketing to begin, unfortunately my skills at stamping are a work in progress, just like my left hander paper smudging my technique needs some polishing 


Tis The season that is

I Heart Design has been working with the Amazing company 'One Fine Day' to help with some custom signs, you have to check out their FaceBook page to see what they've been up to. One Fine Day is all you need to make your special day shine brightly, with great ideas, props & know how they are the go to for weddings and events in the Lakes/Wakatipu area.


Contemporary Art by I Heart Design

I have been busy creating these arrows, of which I've sourced the pieces from all over the world, I am going to create these in a few different color ways but these are my first, originally created for myself but with the interest from friends I may now start a small production line, winding & sticking each piece on by hand to create each unique set of arrows. They are time consuming to make but the end product shows this & they look great hung as a set.


Still serving their purpose

Its nice to know that they still are put to good use, sketching & spending your day up to the eyeballs in pencil shavings is still the way that great unique designs begin. 

Computers are where designers head to bring their designs to light, unfortunately some designers may forget to start back at the basics, to get a truly original design that has flare & thought you need to start with a piece of paper & a pencil, only then are you going to get the results you want. This part of the process lets you develop ideas, tweak, change & brainstorm with the type, layout, colors, sizes & all the other elements of the design freely, you can see that if the design already looks fantastic seen purely as pencil on paper that when bringing it to the computer you can see your creation develop & shine.
