Envy Never Looked so Good!

Envy Never Looked so Good!

Nobody knows the design that we’ve seen
Nobody knows but Jesus…

Jaysus…

Now, kerning (freely) over a selected graphic design software packages is not the same as the Deep South in the 1800s as a forced African immigrant – but we always add an extra layer of unnecessary drama, inappropriate hyperbole, and  just plain wrong comparisons when it comes to our design related suffering.

However, we did break out the spiritual singing, sad humming, and little tiny tears rolled out of our eyes – when we saw this. It was highly upsetting we tell you highly upsetting.

This sweet suite is the stuff that our little design night terrors are made of.  We also have day terrors, but salubrious amounts of coffee and eating our feelings our usual weapon of hiding feelings choice are doughnuts… mmmm doughnuts…

But, this is awfully awesome.

Yes it is.

Belinda Love Lee – though we wish you many happy years together, we do – we say that with sincerity.  We wish for you never to design again as it hurts our egg shell thin egos.

Anyway, whilst rocking backwards and forwards eating a pink frosted donut we sing…

Nobody knows the design that we’ve seen
Nobody knows but Jesus…

Envy Never Looked so Good!

Envy Never Looked so Good!

When we saw these invitations we screamed this much.

sc 2145781b 536x335 Envy Never Looked so Good!  stationery and graphics inspiration design envy

Fire and brimstone coming down from the sky! Rivers and seas boiling!

Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes!

The dead rising from the grave!

Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats, living together! Mass hysteria! – see what we did there with the little Ghostbusters reference.  Oh + yeah! Well, why don’t you follow up and listen to the mixtape.

Returning from that sidebar…

Who is making us bellow such guttural sounds that it is causing the earth to quake and causing those around us to throw damaging and libellous accusations such as ‘drama queen’, ‘self pitying fool’ (however Mr. T pities us – yes he do!)

Well, the work that is causing the hue and cry…

Last silly reference we swear it!

Is this from Danielle Reilly…

Tortoise belly invations which might be sweet for you, but for us…

Not so much!

Envy Never Looked so Good! - Harriet Taylor Seed

Envy Never Looked so Good! – Harriet Taylor Seed

This is eye wateringly…

Horrendously…

Painfully good looking…

(kind of like Henry Cavill *girly swoon*)

However, ours was less a girl swoon of delight over Hollywood hotness, it was more a swoon of design fright.  It is so sad, globalisation, access to the internet and an assortment of digital communication means that envy is global.

How we yearn for the old days of carrier pigeons and dial-up internet then it would take way longer for us to be visually hit with things such as this.  Harriet Taylor Seed – we are hating on you!

Envy Never Looked so Good!

There are some things that make you say ‘The F**k’

Yes, there are truly some things like that which are encountered on the interwebs and in wedding design land.  We were doing our usual doings on the internet thinking we were break the thermoter hot…

We were so feeling ourselves…

No, not in the bad touching kind of way (we might multitask but we believe in the sanctity of our keyboard and maintaining it’s hygiene).

We mean in the *cough* Miley Cyrus // Will.i.am (also known as William) way.

We did muse that it would be hella funny that if whilst on his tour of Sydney Wills demands to be called Will.i.am.  But, since he was all ‘I’ll sue you Pharrell!’ we think that it would lead to defriending on Facebook, handbags o’clock and the rest between the Wills’.

Oh, we forgot we are actually meant to be a wedding blog… back to the point, we were feeling ourselves but the warm afterglow of our self love fest faded faster than relations between the Ukraine and Russia (too soon?) when we saw this.

This wedding branding is so sick that it made us dry heave and ugly cry all at once, it was special – particularly considering how much clean up was required due to the makeup smears.  The guests might have been crying happy tears at this big day hooray.

We just cried, nothing worse than being bettered.
