Recent Work: Love Court XOXO

Things have been very quiet around the blog as of late, but I’m still eager to share new work! This project, with Courtenay Ackley, was extremely fun! Love Court XOXO, is Courtenay’s personal blog / online journal. Court described her blog as ‘future love letters to her family and herself.’ I love this idea! She keeps track of life and she’ll be able to look back later to all her exciting memories!

She wanted her blog to be feminine, approachable and easy going. Courtenay is a sucker for subtle patterns, polka dots and any charcoal/pink combos. She also loved ink and watercolor — so this project seemed to perfectly fit. It’s always fun to work with clients who have similar styles.

Check out her blog!

    Hey Alva,

    Thanks! But actually, that pattern was made for Courtenay during our branding process. Feel free to email me if you’d like to work together to create a pattern for yourself.
