Increasing brand awareness through spreading Christmas cheer

“Lyn is an absolute dream to work with!  Her bubbly, lovely personality makes it a super fun process, and her work speaks for itself - just beautiful.  10/10 communication, clarity in expectations, and meeting of deadlines. On this specific job, Lyn was tasked with creating typography out of cake - exploring different icing, decorations, levels of detail etc - and she made the process as fun as it sounds!”

Telling stories and connecting through handmade crafts

“I was in absolute awe when I saw the finished product. The best part was the reaction from my sister in law and her son, when they opened their gift. Being part of the process of storytelling, will always keep me connected to my nephew. This little gift will be treasured forever. Thank you Lyn, working with you was such a delight!”

Client
Kiara Park.

Project type
Lettering and gilding.

Background
Kiara wanted a personalised gift for her sister in law. A keepsake that would tell a story about her nephew, Vinnie Fox. A cheeky and clever toddler that loves nature and being in the great outdoors.

Brief
To design and hand gild a reverse glass sign that best represented Vinnie Fox. I wanted to capture his energy and personality with the use of different textures, finishes and bright colours.

The result
A beautiful gold reflection (literally) of Vinnie Fox that depicts his personality. Being able to hear about Vinnie created a greater sense of connection to him and I couldn’t be more proud to be part of creating a tribute for the cute little guy.
