First off, let me say that I absolutely adore hand drawn elements in design. Much to the chagrin of my family I made them stop every three buildings on a trip to France to take pictures of hand painted signs.
Look at that! Art is all around you! Don’t you see how beautiful the curve in that “S” is??!?!
With my love for all things handmade, it’s been wonderful to see our amazingly talented Minted community incorporating hand drawn elements into their work.
Emily Potts of pottsdesign beautifully married a rustic illustration of a tree with clean, classic typography. And all the variable elements that our customers can change right down to the initial carved into the tree are a font — which makes the designers at Minted very happy.
Who knew scribbles could feel so modern? Lili Meng’s stationery design is colorful, energetic, unique and hand drawn!
Erika of Gleaux certainly has a knack for layering modern graphics with hand drawn illustration and Dry Petals is a perfect example. Overlaying organic line art brings depth and warmth to her design.
Our Last Call Holiday Challenge has just begun we’re already amazed by what our design community is creating. It’s hard not be charmed by Kimberly’s whimsical illustrations of San Francisco. By eschewing clip art Kimberly’s hand drawn elements give this design personality and a truly unique flair all its own.1 COMMENT
