Why You Should Hire a PRO

I was never one to spend a lot of money on name brands. I used to wonder what the big deal was; why was it so important for people to spend $100 on a pair of jeans that I could buy for $50? And then it hit me – it’s not just about the name, it’s about the quality. About five years ago I bought a pair of jeans from the Gap for $30. I thought I was getting a great deal – they were 30% off of $60, plus I had a coupon for 20% off my entire purchase. It was such a good deal that I ended up buying two pairs of the same jeans in different colors…. Read More →

Font Friday: Belluccia Bold

Happy Friday friends! It’s been 392 days since our last FONT FRIDAY blog post. (hangs head in shame) Which is why I am so. Excited!  Let’s get this party started, shall we? Okay good. I am SO thrilled to be back in the saddle for some fun Font Friday fun! Over the past several months, I’ve been filling my collection with some new, rad typefaces and I can’t wait to feature them. It’s always my goal to bring you fonts that are new, beautiful, fun and USABLE. There are so many different fonts out there, that while they are completely amazing, they are often not so great for your project. Nothing like a font you can’t read, am I right!?… Read More →

Happy 2014!

Happy New Year! 2013 was a great year for myself personally, as well as Weswen Design. We worked on a whopping 112 design jobs. That’s 40 more than we had come our way last year and a number that really puts a smile on my face! Needless to say, it was B-U-S-Y. I like a fast-paced lifestyle so didn’t mind being on the hustle but it’s always nice when you can figure out how to work smarter, not harder, right? I don’t know about you, but each and every year I set out to make a list of resolutions that I truly think will make the new year easier, more relaxed and happy. Like most resolutions, some make it into… Read More →

Helping to Heal Hearts

Wow! 2013 is nearly a wrap! Where does the time go? It’s fitting to reflect on a small yet incredibly fulfilling project that we were delighted to work on this past month. We were honored to have been asked to design a custom stamp for a friend of Weswen Design who has experienced the unimaginable loss of a child. Being a mom myself, I can’t even begin to fathom the pain that this loss creates. I knew I could do a little something to help and that’s exactly what I did… When you spend your days designing for the new business on the corner that needs a logo, or the association that needs to have a beautiful magazine for their… Read More →

S’COOL

The day after Labor Day always marks the start of the kiddos heading back to school. At least in VA where I’m from. Isn’t it funny how the end of the summer weekend seems dripping in good memories of a fun summer had and also new beginnings as we gear up for Fall and the rest of the remaining year? For me, it’s almost like New Years Day. A time for reflection, change and motivation as I rethink how I’d like the last  of 2013 to go. Lots of things are brewing in the Weswen Design studio and I can’t wait to jump back into our social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram <— are we connected?) and here on the blog.
