The Seattle Book Arts Guild invited me to discuss what went into making two new artist's books, which I created during an artist's residency I did in August 2019. SEE MORE

PROJECT: Personal Thank You Cards   |   DESIGNER: Catherine Dimalla  |   CLIENT: Tina Tran

Miss Tran was looking for a greeting card design to  help celebrate an important milestone in her life, and also show gratitude to those who have been a part of her extensive  journey. 

With the overall themes of opulence and celebration, designer Catherine Dimalla designed a combination of hand lettered typography and ornamentation that exude an elegant art nouveau feel.  I letterpress printed the design in two colors using special metallic inks.
