Happy Holidays from CurlyRed!

We want to take a moment and thank all of you: our clients, our fans on Facebook, readers of our blog, our friends, and our family! As our 3rd year of business comes to a close, it's hard to imagine CurlyRed not always being around. But it wouldn't be without all of your love, support and business!

A special shout out for some of our favorite people: Mark Ludwig, Margot Ludwig (aka heir to the CurlyRed fortune), Madeline Meister, Kristin LeFeber, and our summer/fall intern Sarah Linzey. Also a big thanks to our fabulous business coach Susan Katz, great clients like Andrew Rose, Larry Lichtenauer, Will Marshall and Randi Pupkin (just to name a few), not to mention some truly great designer friends such as Jessica Watson, Jenn Tucker and Illiah Manger!

Whew! Thanks a lot of people to thank! And there's many more of you...it would just take too long to list every person that's made this year a success. We wish you all a very happy and safe holiday season. Please cherish the ones you love and take a moment to reflect on your blessings.

Here's to a fantastic 2011!

HeARTwares: Grand Opening!

CurlyRed is pleased to announce that we have developed the branding for an amazing store called HeARTwares by Art With a Art!

HeARTwares is having an opening celebration on Saturday, December 4th from 3-6 pm! Click here for all the details, we hope you can make it out!

Art with a Heart brings its visual art programs to abused, neglected and abandoned children; homeless people; battered women and their children; pregnant adolescents; mentally and physically disabled adults; low-income senior citizens; elementary, middle, and high school students; youth in after-school programs; and children receiving long-term health care. HeARTwares is a service-learning venue for participants of Art with a Heart programs and is an evolved version of Art with a Heart's art-to-market and Summer Job program initiatives. Like those efforts, HeARTwares will use art as a vehicle to teach job skills. Participating youth and adults will work in the store and gain real-world experience in dealing with the public, handling money, and presenting a professional appearance and attitude.

During the weekend, HeARTwares will sell a wide variety of hand-made and one-of-a-kind artwork, jewelry, house ware items, garden ornaments, and assorted gifts. The store will initially be open on weekends only, with extended hours anticipated to occur throughout the holiday season and around gift-giving holidays. The proceeds from the sale of the art are shared with the community partner.

Where have we been?


So some of you may be asking, "What's up with CurlyRed? I thought they were launching their website soon?", etc.

And to answer: Yes, it is in the works. But, as it always seems to happen in the graphic design world, several large projects that we are very excited about have all hit at once. So we are happy to report that we are very busy, but with that means a (hopefully very small) delay in
releasing our new website is in order.

Please stay tuned. We promise to keep you posted. Thanks for your support, encouragement, and patience!

Step 2: Get Inspired! (Part 2)

Inspiration can come from anywhere, and we are always on the lookout for amazing work our fellow designers are creating.

But when thinking about redesigning our website, we were particularly interested in finding other websites that have a similar aesthetic to ours. And here are some of our favorites:

We love this site for the Renegade Craft Fair, which just happened last weekend in Chicago. The playfulness of the handwritten top banner and buttons fit perfectly with the imagery of the handmade goods the site features. The color palette, illustrations and wood panel background texture give it a vintage feel.

The site is for a design firm in Tennessee called Level 2 Design. Rarely does a website succeed in transporting the viewer to another place and time like this site does. We also think their portfolio is showcased quite nicely.

Ahhh...good old Design Sponge. This is, hands down, one of the best design blogs on the web. And the layout, while very simple, works perfectly for the abundance of content. The texture of each element and the layering style really gives a 3-dimensional feel to the whole site. Apparently, they are in the process of redesigning their site as well. We look forward to seeing what they come up with.

Last but not least, we think it's pretty obvious why we were drawn to this site of the Dallas Advertising Agency, Targetscope. Yes, we do have a deep love for all things pinup.

Hope you enjoy these websites as much as we did! Have a great weekend.

9.15.2010

Step 2: Get Inspired!


So in the next few days, we will be sharing with you some websites we've found that we really love, but first...

Our friends Lisa and Matthias got married a few weeks ago, and we were blown away by every personal touch and detail. From the hand crafted beer and beer labels, to the hundreds of paper cranes, to the vintage glass used in the centerpieces, it was perfection. The entire day just felt so...THEM. They reminded us that everything you do should be incredibly unique to who you are. We want our website to be just as unique and creative. Thanks, Lisa and Matthais, for inspiring us!

Here are some more snapshots:

Let's start with color...

Happy Monday everyone!

Here at CurlyRed, we are working on a huge project: redesigning our website! It's no small feat, and something we've been wanting to do for, well, a really long time. But then came a baby, and she threw everything off-track (in the best way possible).

But now that we are moving full steam ahead, we would like to give you a sneak peak on our creative process. One of the first steps for us was creating our color palette. So we went to our favorite color picker, Kuler, to put together some swatches. And here's what we came up with:


When you see these colors together, it seems awfully bright, almost garish. But used the right way, like on our existing website, you can see how well this palette works. Therefore, we think we will be picking to a similar basic palette, but perhaps adding in some more muted tones, and a whole lot of TEXTURE.

In our next blog post, we will be sharing with you some other websites that have truly inspired us. Stay tuned!

A Few Words About Package Design

(thanks once again to our intern Sarah, for putting together this blog post!)

People all over the world are trying to make packages that are “cool” looking and functional beyond just holding said product. Now “cool” can be defined in a million different ways because well, it depends on the person talking about it. There are packages from a plain colored box with minimal text, and you can barely tell what the product is, OR you can have a box covered with 5 different prints, and hand made fonts with glitter and diamonds. To each his own I suppose.

Personally, I like a little mix of both, pretty straight forward text with a touch of a pattern or some kind of intricate element that keeps you looking at the box. This brings me to my first pick of what I think is quality packaging. This line is for an Artisan Bakery in the UK designed by Here Design firm.


The shapes pop, they are recognizable without being to detailed, and the contrast of red on white is just to die for. Clean and simple with a touch of modern elements make this packaging design pretty yummy. See more pictures here.

With the good, comes the bad though. And it seems that when it is bad, it is really bad. There is a brand out there, that I (and many others) find so upsetting to the design world, that we spent an entire semester lamenting over it and going to therapy because of it (well, not really, but you know what I mean). The culprit is WalMart’s
ENTIRE line of “Great Value” packaging. Now I will give them credit for re-vamping the whole line, because I think they knew it was ugly, but it still looks awful.


They went from an awful mix of golden script and serif font, to bold boring outlined san serif font. They changed the food pictures which is good, because no food on the old Great Value packages actually look appetizing. It might have been a great value, but that was only because it was rotten, and a month past it’s expiration date (according to the pictures). The package says nothing more than, “Huh, well this looks to be a box of moderately priced fruit snacks.”

Just because something may be a Great Value, doesn’t mean the integrity of the packaging should be compromised. Cheap foods want to be pretty too. People like to feel good about their purchases, and nothing about this branding makes anyone feel anything but depressed.

Because I am a lover of mac, I have to give a shout out to the designers of the Mac brand, and commend them on their beautiful packaging. Every case that a mac product comes in is perfect. They are elegant, and both texturally and visually pleasing. I think Mac has nailed it right on the head with their packages.


If you're interested in following new and upcoming design trends in the world of packaging, I suggest putting Dieline on your google reader: It's pretty much awesome.

Social Media & In-Bound Marketing Workshop-August 6th

Here's another event you should attend, put on by my friends at Blue Ocean Ideas:


Things are changing drastically in technology and culture. The marketing implications are huge.

You don't need to feel lost.

In this all-day workshop, Blue Ocean Ideas and M Design will cover what's changing and why it's changing. We'll look at the tools and platforms that you can be (and should be) engaged with right now to reach your audience effectively.

You will leave with a firm grasp of all this "stuff" that seems to be making the world so complex and fast paced. We will present the information using easy to understand examples so you leave with knowledge you can use.

Session 1
We will look at the core of web 2.0 - what that means, where it came from, and why it matters in business. We'll talk about content publishing, content management systems, search engine optimization, online video, and more.

Session 2
This will be an in-depth analysis of social media. Everyone's talking about it. Not everyone knows what to do about it. There are no formulas - and that is exactly the point. We'll look at why social media is so powerful and what questions you should be asking to determine your social media engagement strategy. We'll also teach on the most popular and most effective tools available to you (for free!) today.

Session 3
This will be an overview of the future of mobile device usage. Things like smartphones (iPhones, Droids) and tablet devices (iPad, Kindle) are changing how we learn, how we live, and, as you will see, they are changing the very way our brains work. Your business needs to know what the future holds for mobile devices.

Session 4
This will be an insightful look at the role of in-bound marketing for your organization. Given all of the changes happening in the world, it is essential that you know how to be found whenever someone is looking for whatever it is that you do.

There will be plenty of opportunities for Q&A.

Happy Hour to follow for all participants.

New website design by CurlyRed!

When our friend, Beth Fales, approached us about designing a website for the childcare facility she was starting, we were excited about the fun challenge of designing a daycare website.

Inspired by the beautiful open areas of land near her home and a color palette with kids in mind, we couldn't be more happy with the end result:

And no, we haven't updated our portfolio section just yet! We've been busy bees (a good thing) and we are hoping to put up several new pieces very soon. Thanks for your patience and stay tuned for some exciting CurlyRed news!

Design trend: Handwritten Typography

(Handwritten type is not a new trend by any means, but recently we've been seeing it EVERYWHERE! So we asked our intern Sarah to dig a little deeper, and here's what she found.)

You're just my type.

It seems that more companies are looking to use fonts personal to the creators, and creating a revolution of Handwritten fonts. In a world that has gotten so mechanical, and technological, typography has followed suit. But it seems that more and more companies are reverting to handwritten type for their advertising, such as Starbucks new personalized Frappachino ad campaign. Why such the explosion of handwritten fonts? Maybe it is a way to get more in tune with the products and create personal interactions and connections with the consumer. People all over are using these handwritten unique fonts for all kinds of purposes.


Font Aid IV asked the help of over 400 artists to create a piece to raise money for Haiti. They asked the artists to create their own version of an ampersand (&). They put the 400 ampersands together in the emergency + symbol. You can buy your own copy of the project for $20 to help raise funds.


Companies like Starbucks have really boosted this new idea of personalized coffee with their use of handwritten fonts. Also their commercials for the new Starbucks Via, features coffee mugs with fonts that help depict the person drinking the coffee along with the “names” used to identify them (which aren't handwritten but have distinct personalities). Their ad campaign is a good example of the way handwritten fonts should be used.

Also other good examples are companies like Carabou Coffee, in which they use the fonts to help get across a carefree, comical connection with the consumers.

On the other hand, some designers are emphasizing the handwritten fonts in the wrong way:


As much as I like the show True Blood, most of the posters for the seasons have an awful font layout. It looks like the designer didn’t space the text evenly, and squished the “Blood” in next to the “True”. Handwritten font isn’t supposed to be perfect but this font just looks sloppy. The vampires in the show are organized and extremely intelligent, the posters should reflect this someway, this font is just all wrong. For such an awesome show, the text on the poster should be a little more regal and a little less like a 5 year old drew it with a crayon.

I think this handwritten font thing is an ever growing fad, pretty soon to be overdone, but worth looking into or trying for yourself. And to the ever-dreaded Comic Sans:

Special DIY post: Girls' Night In!


(a huge thanks to our summer intern, Sarah, for creating this blog post!)

For the summer, it is always fun to go out and have some frozen drinks with some friends, chat over your day and just maybe have a nice girls night out. Unfortunately, sometimes it is not always conducive to everyone's budget. There is a simple solution to this (that most of the time turns out to be more fun): Have a “Girls' Night In” instead.

There are some simple things that you can do to make it special, and that will impress all of your friends:



Finding some fun place settings for cheap, or even making your own, add an even more intimate touch to the whole evening. Simple things like napkin holders— take old paper towel rolls, cut into sections, and wrap them in decorative papers or fabrics. Add old buttons or other embellishments to make a cute little accent to your paper or cloth napkins.




Painting your own margarita glasses will make the night more personal, and let your friends feel special because they have their own glass, that is one of a kind.


Margarita glasses can come in all forms and prices, in both plastic and glass, depending on your budget. Simple acrylic paint from stores like Michaels or Joann's would work fine on either surface. You might even have some kind of paint around the house to use (make sure it is not toxic since your friends mouths are going on the glasses). A good place to look for margarita glasses would be a party supply store, they would carry quite an array of different styles of glasses.


For the summer, fun floral patterns would be cute on the glasses, maybe a different flower for each friend. You could even put your friend's name on the glass so they know which one is theirs.


Of course you will need something to put in said Margarita glasses. There are tons of recipes for things like daiquiris and margaritas. One of my favorites is the skinny girl margarita, its delicious and low (enough) on calories! Here's the recipe:


2 oz of clear premium tequila

.5oz of orange liquor

juice of one fresh lime

add ice, just mix and enjoy!


As for food: light, fresh foods are the best on a warm summers night. Summer salads and light finger foods would be perfect for a casual, night between friends. Pick foods with a lot of color!



Other things that would be important for a perfect night, are mood lighting and other decorations. The more random the better, it gives an eclectic homey feel to the night. Candles, Tiki torches, rope lights—deck out, well... your deck or patio in the lights. Also find the prettiest garden in the neighborhood and ask your neighbor for some flowers, or purchase a wild flower bouquet to add to the table. Wild flowers tend to be more casual but beautiful, and perfect for a night such as this. Have your food on large serving dishes, or bowls, those will help fill the table up with more color!


This page has a ton of fun, light summer recipes that are nutritious and fun for outside eating. All are simple to prepare and sound delicious. AND they have a lot of color to add some pop to your table. Here's to a great Girls' Night In!

Using Art for Good: Heart for Haiti

copyright 2010 Melinda Beck

copyright 2010 Kali Ciesemier

(thanks to our intern Ashley, for writing this blog post!)

A recent local art event caught our eye:


The recent turmoil that is taking place in Haiti has brought many people together to offer aid. A charity event (put on by the awesome firm Spur Design) held in honor of those in need, 100 Heads for Haiti, was a huge success. The event was an exhibition, with over 120 artists, designed to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. The goal of the exhibition was to raise $10,000 and the successful fund raiser raised $9,700, just 300 short of the original goal.

The gallery where the event took place, Spur Gallery, at 3504 Ash Street in Baltimore, was the fundraiser destination. The individual pieces and posters were sold at Spur Gallery during the event and the remainder was sold online, at the online store until May 15th. Charitable donations were also given at the event. The pieces in the show are still displayed on the original website created for the event.

It is heartening to know that people are still willing to help in this economic downturn to help those less fortunate. Though this event is over, donations are still welcomed by the Haitians. Until the people of Haiti are able to rebuild, donating to other charitable organizations, such as the Red Cross will help them keep hope alive.

Registration ends tomorrow!

Use Century Gothic and save ink!

(thanks to our former intern Becky for sending this to us!)


We are quick to say that our favorite typeface is Century Gothic...and it's pretty apparent if you take a look at our logo. It's clean, rounded, simple and elegant. But here's one more reason to love it: it uses less ink!

From an article by NPR: “The school previously used Arial for the majority of its communications, but they found that by making the simple switch [to Century Gothic], they could save up to 30% of its ink usage. The font is a good ink saving option because of its thin profile, however because the letters are wide and sits larger it can also use up more paper. A remedy for this would be to condense the character spacing and reduce the printing margins so more text can print on each page.”

Inspired Wedding Invitations

(thanks to our intern Ashley for creating this blog post!)

Planning a wedding is a very wonderful time in a couple’s life. This can be a very stressful and exciting time for couples. Planning what food to serve and what flowers to serve, however, are not the only important decisions to make. Finding the perfect wedding invitation for your special day can be an exciting time that allows your creativity to shine through.
There are many trends that provide couples with many options to choose from. Trendsetting stripes and embellishments can give your invitations are contemporary edge while still keeping a traditional feel. Bold colors and couture textures would also give your invites a luxurious and contemporary feel as well. Vintage patterns and modern monograms also lend your invites an edge that would transform your wedding day.

No matter what design elements you choose to incorporate into your invitation’s design, remember to keep the theme of your decorations cohesive. Think about the colors that would best represent your union as a married couple. When planning a wedding, it also is important to keep elements similar, while still utilizing a unique flair. If you are going to be planning a beach wedding, why not keep a bohemian flair while incorporating some jeweled elements? Just remember: this is your big day, and you want to make your dreams come true.

Super Mario Bros. Nursery: Before & After

As many of you know, when we found out we were pregnant, we talked about converting the our guest room into a truly awesome nursery. Here was our blah guest bedroom before. We had just taken down the ugly wallpaper and all we had for the baby was a crib that Eric and Emily graciously passed on to us.

If the baby was to be a girl, we were going with a Madeline theme, if the baby was to be a boy, we were going with original Super Mario Bros.

Well, we never did find out the sex. Yes, we have a stubborn baby that refused to cooperate. So, we decided to go with the more gender-neutral of the two. And even though a Madeline nursery would have been beautiful, we are so happy with how the nursery came out, and Margot seems rather happy in there (she's always staring at the wall decals with wonder).


So where did we find the things to create this glorious nursery?

Well, as previously mentioned, the crib, glider and dresser were given to us by Eric and Emily. The changing table, crib sheet and bumper are from Babies R Us, the nightlight and mushroom light on the dresser are from Target, the totally rad wall decals are from ThinkGeek.com. The books, stuffed animals and piggy bank were lovingly selected and given to us by friends and family, and Mark designed and built the mobile himself!

If you have any other questions about our process, just ask!
 
good design for everyone
