Envy Never Looked so Good!

Envy Never Looked so Good!

September 25, 2013  |  Design Envy, Inspiration, Stationery & Graphics  |  No Comments

This is quite honestly this is the most lavishly intricate design envy that we ever did see – and we have a whole lot of hater-ation going on.  Inspired by baroque art this invitation has inspired tears of pain (not delight lovers and a world of pain)

The couple that this sweet *narrows eyes* suite was designed for are musicians. It is baroque influenced brilliance and since we are in recovery we aren’t doing the drinking anymore.  So, we will lie in a corner on our backs, with tears rolling down our faces.

It isn’t easy being a designer… not in the slightest.  The designers who has made us feel ‘meh’ stolen our joy, ruined our lives and what not are El Calitipo

It’s Lovely Monday time, Lovers – blue skies are here this morning and I am putting in a happy face – and right about now it is all about me knocking back Green Tea, as I seem to be beating my coffee addiction.  More than that apart from me swigging the green stuff it is all about lovely wedding stuff and a bit of inspiration this morning!

One of the things about everything life related is that either we are rushing far ahead into the future or into the past… we are all time travellers of sorts my lesson that I keep relearning is to stay focused on the here and now.  We’ll deal with the future when it gets here.

No, I’m not the Jimmy Savile of the wedding world – but although one part of me thinks that is horrilbly invasive rubber necking at celeb kids (yes, I have more beef than cows over the behaviour of paps when it comes to celebs!)

But, this week’s crush has got to be Harper Beckham, the only child who actually smiles when all those camera men go nuts.  And her Mama’s new collection for Fashion Week is all kinds of hot – you can see the panel discussion over on ShowStudio.

Well, it’s time to twerk while you werk since I’m trying to kick my coffee addiction – doing the harlem shake at my desk (I mean the original one not that Bauuer ish) is the only way to keep myself awake, I thought it best to have a soundtrack to do it to.  So, there is a bit of Joey Bada$$, Ciara, and what not… just a small selection of music that have been keeping me company whilst I’ve been working on this here blog.

Normally, this would be where we would break down into a typical (of us) but humorous rant that would include some obscure pop culture references, a little hyperbole about alcohol consumption and our mental well being; with the finale being an asterisked action/stage direction.

But, there are some things that are so beautifully designed and lovingly executed that you simply celebrate some artistry and save the snarky for some other sunny day.  These illustrations for a wedding book are exquisite – soaked with emotion, charisma and personality.   These aren’t designs to be envied; they are illustrations by Riccardo Guasco; are to be celebrated!

You think we’re losing our touch, that we don’t what have it takes to roast an invitation design like a spatch cock chicken on BBQ Sunday?  We really don’t give a damn – we just want to luxuriate in something beautiful.
