L Mac Events – Identity and Business Cards

Longtime friend of Dauphine and celebrity event stylist Sasha Souzarecently referred one of her colleagues, Brooklyn event designer Lauren Macaulay, to us for identity and business card development.

Lauren wanted a design that evoked a retro feeling and featured “L Mac”, a shortened version of her name as the logo. Dauphine designer Katrina McHugh used an old-Hollywood inspired typeface paired with a eye-catching, yet sophisticated color palette of a nutmeg brown and french blue to create these radiant business cards.

Lauren was a true delight to work with, a sentiment surely echoed by her event clients. Click here to learn more about Lauren’s dynamic design sensibility and see samples of her work.

Shrader Design Announcement

Just out of our press room is this clean and sophisticated letterpress card announcing the launch of a new website for exterior designer Scott Shrader of Shrader Design. The piece was designed by Lisa Collins of Studio One San Francisco and printed on extra thick 600gsm Crane Lettra paper in grey ink with a blind (ink-less) hit on the back. We also utilized our vintage Rosback pin-hole perforater to create a breakaway business card with the company’s name and url. Lisa’s design paired the letterpress piece with an offset printed vellum slip-sheet inviting the recipient to visit www.shraderdesign.com. We encourage you do to the same and savor some of Scott’s stunning exterior design work.

Judy Paulen Designs – Baby Announcement

Our friend Jessica Paulen of Judy Paulen Designs in New York {at Bloomingdale’s} welcomed a daughter last year and we really loved the sweet design she chose to announce the arrival of little Maya Dove. The floral pattern feels current, but it’s actually a very old Japanese Katagami design originally used for dying textiles.

If you’re in New York, Jessica and her team can help you design the perfect baby announcement. Just pop up to the 6th floor and say hello!

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Anne & Mike {Part One}

We recently had the pleasure of working with a lovely local couple, Anne and Mike, to design and print the invitations and day of pieces for their Santa Barbara wedding.

To tie-in to the look and feel of their event at the Four Seasons Biltmore Resort, Anne and Mike selected the Grammercy suite from our Coral wedding line for their menu and other reception pieces.

Their charming and classically Californian event was photographed by the brilliant Ray Erwin, who was voted one of the top ten wedding photographers of 2009 by American Photo. He recently featured Anne and Mike’s wedding on his blog —  click here to see Ray’s beautiful work and more details from Anne and Mike’s joyous day.

Check back next week when we feature Anne and Mike’s invitation suite in a to-die-for tangerine and turquoise color combination.

Anyon Interior Design – Logo & Business Card Design

It’s not everyday that we get to work with one of our wedding clients after the happy day has passed, but when the occasion arises we are always delighted to hear what they are up to. In the case of former Dauphine Press bride Lindsay Brier, she came back to Dauphine Design for the development of a new identity for her San Francisco-based interior design business.

Lindsay wanted the design to be clean & calm and after a consultation with Dauphine designer, Katrina McHugh, they decided on an illustration of a mystic knot as the icon that best represents her philosphy and aesthetic. The mystic knot is a feng shui motif symbolizing a long and happy life full of good fortune — we wish the same for Lindsay and Anyon Interior Design!

Click hereto learn more about the very talented Lindsay Brier and see some of her brilliant work.

PS – Dauphine friend Suzanne Lavalee of Spoiled Bitch is the creative and technical genius behind the Anyon website.
