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.

What happened to a slow summer? Typically this is what I hear from other designers…. however, NOT the case here! Here’s a glimpse of the work in progress from the past 24 hours. Happy last day of July! We’re ready to tackle August #likeaboss
It’s official: Weswen Design has truly gone international. When we were asked by a couple living in South Africa to design their wedding stationery for their African safari/destination wedding, the answer was simple: YES! Hell yes!! When I think of Africa a million things come to mind: beautiful patterns, colors, animals….. the ability to design something completely unique and different. And then THIS came to mind because I can’t hear the word “Africa” without hearing Mr. Jamie Foxx in the back of my mind. This video is such a wonderful throwback to my college days! >> If the embedded video doesn’t work for you (Safari and Chrome users!) you can click HERE to see it. Kate and Gordon wanted something truly… Read More →
Happy Monday, friends. Happy summa-time too :) (yay June!) This spring we’ve had the pleasure of working with some wonderful couples on their wedding invitations and day-of materials. It’s not often that our designs contain one color, and when that color happens to be black, we’re completely out of our element. However, when we designed Laura and Salvatore’s elegant black and white wedding day-of paper goodies, everything changed. Now, we can’t get enough of this simplistic and completely refreshing (not to mention totally elegant) look. Here is a peek at their double sided wedding program, menu and escort cards.

Winter brought us some pretty rad clients and its time we start showing off all our new work! We have been so happy to have so much branding work. Projects that fall under the small business branding umbrella have a special place in our hearts. Is yours next? Today it’s time to show off the mini tri-fold brochure we designed for our friends at Popcorn Monkey, a gourmet popcorn shop in Middleburg, Virginia! There are few foods that can stimulate such fun memories as popcorn. It’s nearly impossible to watch a movie without it for goodness sakes! Personally, it was a favorite bonding thing between my Dad and I. Every night, after dinner and before bedtime, he would pop up… Read More →
