Designs to Match Longies/Shorties!

When we started cloth diapering our youngest I had a really hard time finding cute shirts to match his longies and shorties. We're currently trying to conceive so I've been working on some new graphic design art to match my favorite colorways.

I've put up polls on a few of the message boards I frequent to gauge interest in designs like these:

Pretty cute, huh?! I'm very excited about these designs. :)

Animated Banner for "Fluff and Stuff"

I had a lot of fun designing this banner!

Debbie wanted a new banner to showcase her diapers, mama cloth, and family cloth. Her logo (made by Webwurks)has a picture of 4 spools of thread with one thread going under her name.

I thought it would be fun to make it look as if the thread moved throughout the banner and am very pleased with the effect. :) Debbie has such beautiful items it was hard to narrow it down to just a few.

Random Act of Kindness - "KumfyKozies" Vector Logo

Our whole family is recovering from the flu/colds (thankfully not the swine flu, but still icky). Since we weren't able to go to Church today I thought I'd do something nice for a lady on one of my forums.

She was looking for a logo for her business, found one on a site that she could use, and edited it to add her business name. I thought she did a fantastic job! I also thought it might be fun to see what the image would like vectorized and with a soft, fluffy-type font to accent her name "KumfyKozies".

New Twitter Design for "JoyfulRose" :)

After finishing the samples for Rachel's Twitter I decided it was about time mine got an updated look. I was hoping to make it a bit more compatible with smaller monitors and also match my site more. What do you think?

Twitter Design Samples for "Sweet Infant"

I've been playing around with Rachel's Twitter design for her business. Because of the way different monitor resolutions affect the final look, I've created a few samples so that Rachel can decide which look she likes best.

First set. These have the "Sweet Infant" header in the middle of the page. As you can see, the header sits in different places depending on the monitor resolution (bold numbers in the "what are you doing?" box indicate the resolution size). Click to view larger:

Second set. These have the header on the left side of the screen. Click to view larger:

Let me know which design you prefer, or if you have a different idea for your look. :)

Banner and Button for "Fiber Diversion"

Lissa is participating in the "Phat Fiber Box" and needs a static 468x60 banner and 125x125 button. She does such beautiful work that it was hard to decide which pictures to use!

Animated Banner for "Eternal Swirl"

Harla wanted a new animated banner for her shop and had a fantastic idea to incorporate the "swirl" theme into it: swirl the pictures of her work! I had a lot of fun creating this one.

Final Sample:

Rough Draft:
(I didn't like how all of the different background patterns looked so pixelated when changed to .gif form for the banner so I created the final sample with simpler backgrounds that I think look a lot more professional)

Home from the Cabin :)

We're home from a wonderful weekend away at the cabin. We had a wonderful time listening to General Conference and being with our extended family. It's always hard to come home again.

Well, time to get to work!
