Kinfolk and calling cards

Last night, I went out to Brooklyn for the Kinfolk Magazine gathering at The Green Building.  It was simply wonderful.  The people, the venue, the cozy lighting, the intimacy.  Kinfolk is all about simple, small gatherings with friends, and that’s exactly what the evening was.  I was blessed to be able to meet a few new blogging friends, too – Shoko, Amy, Anna, Emily, and Erin.  And of course, the lovely Amanda Jones (Kinfolk’s designer) and Nathan (Kinfolk’s editor)!

One of my favorite elements of the gathering were the simple floral decorations – thanks to Sarah Winward and Amy Merrick – and specifically, the eucalyptus leaf garland hung over the dinner table.  I’ll share pictures soon!

I designed some calling cards for the evening – and found a use for my sequin honeycomb (and the new typewriter, of course)!  What do you think?  I love the way they turned out (and how industrial they are), and especially love that chunky gold paperclip!

Hope you had a lovely weekend, friends!  I’m excited to accomplish a lot this week – and can’t wait to share some exciting news that’s been brewing over here!

till tomorrow,
Rebecca

  2. Love them Rebecca!!! So glad you went to the dinner- that sounds like so much fun!!

  3. Kyla says:

    Oh this is such a fun idea! That sequin honeycomb is fantastic.

  4. erin says:

    so nice to have met you. happy monday!

  5. What a creative calling card! I love how the sequin honeycomb and paper clip adds texture to a regular ol' card. Definitely a stand out and one to remember!

  6. Becca says:

    Hi Rebecca! Pretty cards. As for your question about preserving the quality of my gifs, I'm not exactly sure. I play with the colors and the dither so that the file size is not huge (even though the file sizes are still probably a little too big. haha), and if it takes the quality down too much with that I'll usually go back and make the entire document size a little smaller. Less frames obviously keeps the file size down, and if the file size is down, I don't need to bring the colors or dither down very much.

    I hope that helps!

  7. Vanessa says:

    The calling cards look fantastic, very nice. 🙂

  8. Genius! I knew you'd do something wonderful. 🙂

  9. So clever, that honeycomb is the coolest!

  10. Nicole says:

    Ack, they are so cool!!! And thank you for using real paper for your business card. It drives me crazy when people put such glossy finishes on their cards that it's like they're made of plastic, and I can't write on the back where I met them. I love yours!

  11. Sarah says:

    I love it! I think it fits your style perfectly. How neat that your career is taking off! I'm living vicariously thru you =)
