Happy weekend everyone! I am proud to announce the newest arrival to Whoa Nellie Press – an Art Deco inspired wedding collection – featuring bold black and white geometric designs and typeface. Please check out pricing in my Etsy shop. While I’m at it, I don’t believe I’ve shared my other latest work, which is a Vera Bradley inspired collection I designed for my client, Paula. This one is bursting with colors and henna-like patterns. What do you think? Which do you like better? I’d love to hear what you think. 🙂
So as I’ve mentioned I’ve totally been on a design kick lately and my favorite thing to do is pack as much color into the design as possible! Here’s a look at my Art Nouveau and Mexican Fiesta collections. While I’m certainly not a flapper nor an Art Nouveau/Art Deco buff I’ve learned that the main difference between the two is Art Nouveau features more “flowery” designs and can include repeating geometric patterns, arches and focuses on more natural forms (like insects and weeds), that might otherwise be overlooked. Think of Tiffany windows and the Eiffel tower’s arches when thinking of Art Nouveau. Art Deco is more streamline, like the Chrysler Building, featuring geometric shapes, zigzags and curves. Still confused? Here’s what I’m calling Art Nouveau. Do you agree?
