Rubber stamps - completely underrated! Stamps are such a wonderful (and affordable) way to add a bespoke feel to your product or packaging! Right now I'm loving stamps that feature graphic elements from client branding (a great way to add a special detail or pattern to tissue paper, wrapping paper or even canvas bags for your packaging) and address stamps (a lovely way to address envelopes and cards for clients or you could add extra contact details and use it on those non-digital invoices and letterheads) // Featured here: A rubber stamp made for @moodie_affair featuring the rose detail from the branding we created.

"She is tossed by the waves but does not sink" 🌊💙 // 'Fluctuat nec mergitur' is a Latin phrase and is the motto present on the city coat of arms for Paris, France. The motto has been used since the mid 1300s by the city of Paris and is translated into French as "Il est battu par les flots, mais ne sombre pas" - "She is tossed by the waves but does not sink". // Image of @jonelledupont of @tyrannyofpink by @shante_hutton from the #RosesForThorns series ✨ // Hair and Makeup: @madeleinehairandmakeup // Dress: @jacoba_clothing // Styling and Concept Development: Tapestry

There is something so magical in traveling the brand journey with clients ✨working with them to create a logo and brand elements that are a true and clear reflection of their personal and professional style, values and personality. That process of collaboration and seeing everything come together is the best 🙌 and my absolute favourite part is using those carefully created elements on items made especially for your brand and business. There are very few things in life that beat seeing your own logo come to life on something special and unique to your brand :) Here's a little snap of the laser engraved hangers and pretty packaging stickers I put together for the very wonderful @lovelongclothing :) it was such an joy to work on a visual identity for them and I loved being able to showcase their beautiful branding with these lovely goodies 🌿

Hooray it's Friday! 🎉 and it has been raining in Cape Town 🙌 to celebrate all these wonderful #FridayFeels here is a pretty picture 😜 How beautiful are these paper florals by @moodie_affair 😱😍🌸 I'm a bit obsessed with that pastel pink rose! This image is from the shoot we did to showcase the branding I created for @moodie_affair last year - I just couldn't resist styling a few floral setups with these gorgeous pieces Neil made specially for our shoot :) 😆 // Image by @tiffsburnham // Florals by @moodie_affair // Styling by Tapestry

I can't even fathom the strength and courage it takes to live each day after the loss of your partner and best friend. The way Angela faced (and continues to face) not only the challenges of life, but those of parenthood, without Darrell by her side is a true testimony to her incredible strength and power. And the fact that she chooses to embrace joy, fun and playfulness for her son Elijah, even on the hardest days - is an incredible inspiration. Thank you Angela for sharing your story.

"When you were a child, you lived with the innocence of a child. You laughed wholeheartedly like a child and you loved unashamedly like a child. But when that child dies, you must twist your body into the mould of an adult. You must let pain lead you, regrets make you, terror push you and you must lose the ways of a child in a split second. Soon, you begin to wonder whether you were born at all, or if you just suddenly existed, formed from the destruction of a moment." // It is hard to find the words to express my deep admiration and love for this incredible woman. Her fierce spirit, her tenacity, her brave and courageous honesty and her talent for capturing the raw and real so beautifully and eloquently has captivated and inspired me in so many ways and as she shares her story - the trauma and triumph, I hope it can bring encouragement and healing to those that need it most. 🌿🌹 Have your tissues handy Guys, this one is a tearjerker.
