Animal note cards – Melanie Kimmett

Cards by Melanie Kimmett,  (a fab designer from Vancouver with a fab blog).
You can buy them via Etsy‘s shop.

“A happy maker of cute paperie things here in Vancouver, Canada. I’m heavily influenced by clean, modern design and illustration but take many inspired cues from the quirky urban world around me. Every one of my greeting cards are printed on 100% recycled, FSC-certified paper.”

Words from the Etsy site, pics from Melanie Kimmett.

Mélanie Kimmett – 1

A bit of a love in of Melanie Kimmett’s portfolio and blog. I discovered her site yesterday, checked out some of it today and am so impressed with the content of the blog and the fantastic work she does. Melanie is a designer and illustrator based in Vancouver “specialized in conceptualizing identity + brand design, print publication and illustration”. The work that she (and her team) worked on for the Vancouver Olympics is fab – in particular the AMAZING mascots that she was involved with – “from colour/fabric selection, approval of shape and form as well as calculating and producing 3D sewing patterns to ensure the placement of specific characteristics matched the 2D drawings”. I actually wanted these (and still do)!! Words and pics via her site. This will be the first of many posts…!
