Calentita 2014 Poster Design


For the second consecutive year, the guys from WOM in Gibraltar asked me to design the poster for the Calentita Food Festival. For this year's design they wanted to portrait one of Gibraltar's most iconic architecture landmark: the Moorish Castle. This Medieval fotification is made up of various buildings, gates, fortified walls and its most dominant features, the Tower of Homage and the Gate House. This structure is clearly visible to all visitors to Gibraltar, not only because of its striking construction but also because of its dominant and strategic position.
Regarding design style for this year’s design, I was inspired by the progressive commercial posters of the 1920s and 1930s featuring simple lines and the usage of balanced compositions and bold colour combinations. To create this poster, I used seemingly abstract blocks of colour to build up the castle and the white food stall tents, signature of the Calentita festival.

My photography Project | Glen Beach House

A week ago we stayed in Glen Beach house-sitting our friend's cottage on the beach.  If you haven't been to Cape Town,  Glen Beach is the prettiest beach with amazing views of the mountains: it's literally paradise. So for us to be able to stay there for a whole week was a perfect holiday. Yes; I've found my dream house, wooden floors, beautiful green loan, fireplace and the most spectacular set up.
I really felt very inspired here and couldn't not take some photographs. Here I'll share a few with you (there are some of Arri, my husband and the rasta-cat Napoleon - already missing him).

Jared's Barmitzvah: Day 02

For Jared's second day event, we changed the decor and completely transformed the house for a "green lumo party". We set up a light-motion photobooth, used bright decor elements, lasers and lighting features, and of course a lumo green dancefloor.
I think that both kids and adults had a blast and I'm sure that the local police officers as well, otherwise they wouldn't have come to visit three times. And yeah, we worked hard but it was totally worth it when seeing everyone smile and dance until the last song of the evening.
Special thanks to Sheri who helped me co-ordinate this massive event: I wouldn't have been able to do it without you my special friend (next: your wedding)!  

Jared's Barmitzvah - Day 01

Jared's mom and I worked together in one of my first jobs here in South Africa (she was my boss - one of the coolest ones) and we kept in touch since then. When she asked me to help her with the organization of her first born child's Bar-mitzvah, I couldn't say no; the ideas she had in mind for it, where the kind that I like... So I ended up helping designing invites, stationery, decor, photographing and booking all suppliers for this 2-day event.
On the first night, Jared had a dinner with all his family. We set up at his parent's house garden: the theme for the day was "feel like at home" and the colours we used where white, blue and yellow.
Here are some pics of the event!

Jared's Barmitzvah Invitations

So as you must have noticed, I'm trying to catch up with the posts and update the blog...

So today I want to share with you the invites I made for Jared's Bar-mitzvah last year. The clean and suite in blue, yellow, green and white colours included 3 cards tied with twain and a little tag packed in a colorful envelope.

If you like, wait until you see photos of this 2-day non-stop-wow event coming soon!

Featured Wedding: Celeste and Alain

Yesterday I posted the wedding invitations I did for my friend Cele and her husband Alain. I couldn't not post photos of the wedding day itself... Perfect venue, most beautiful bride and groom ever (I'm serious here), amazing family and friends that flew in from all over the world to be present, made of this, an amazing day filled with true love and joy...

A lot of work went into setting up this beautiful wedding and the attention to detail was spotless (after planning so many Rocking the Daisies, Alain and his team knew exactly what to do to make his bride the happiest). I'm so glad that the little logo I designed for them was used throughout the day in the decor!

Enough said:  I'll let the images speak for themselves... oh, and don't forget to check out their wedding video here!

Once again, congrats Cele and Alain: wishing you the best as Mr. and Mrs Ferrier!
