Matinae Design Studio {Announcement!}

Some big changes are taking place for Matinae Design Studio and I thought I'd take some time out to tell our wonderful clients what is to come!

The biggest change coming MDS's way is a STUDIO! That's right, we've been busy constructing a home studio that will be a wonderful place to work, design, and meet with our clients! It's been a long process but has been so much fun and is sure to be very rewarding.

We are also in the middle of re-branding MDS. You'll soon find a new look on the website and blog. New business cards are also in the works. Some local businesses have even offered to allow me to place my cards in their shops so soon you'll be seeing MDS business cards around town! Thank you to all of the love and support that people have offered me. Networking with other businesses (local and not so local) has been such a blessing.

We'll also soon be on ETSY!! We'll be opening a shop there soon that is sure to be filled with new products! We have so many new ideas and techniques that we can't wait to try out!

We hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and for those of you who had a long weekend, I hope you enjoyed it! I can't believe the holiday season is already underway!

We designed two panel invitations that were held together with ribbon.  The fronts of the panels featured Alice in Wonderland and Halloween elements while the backs featured the in…

Monday Matinae | "Beauty and the Beast" Styling with Jessica Frey

This winter, we got the opportunity to design for a unique shoot that Jessica of Jessica Frey Photography was putting together!  I can't tell you how excited we were to design for this and finally get the chance to work with her!  Jessica has done several fairy tale inspired shoots that are aimed to help brides find modern fairy tale inspiration. Such a cool concept!
For this styling, we had the opportunity to design an invitation suite, placecards, a cake topper, menu, and bunting.  For the invitation we created a navy metallic gatefold that featured an ornate metallic yellow frame that are laser cut and placed to "frame" the panel.  The panel was printed on pearl metallic paper and featured modern silhouettes.  A thick satin ribbon adorned with a gold brooch tied around the outside of the invitation.  The invitation was then placed in a navy metallic invitation box along with a coordinating response card and inner envelope.
Placecards were designed as tent cards using…


For those of you visiting this blog-site, you've probably noticed we've been lacking on posts lately!  We have an excuse though, it's because we're re-branding and when we re-launch, we'll be debuting a brand new blog-site!!  I'm so excited to share the new site and branding with everyone!

In the meantime, our clients have been keeping us very busy!  The 2013 wedding season is about to wrap up and we're in the midst of designing holiday party invitations and cards.  I always love this time of the year! 

Stay tuned!
