Dad – Typography quilled card

It was Father’s day yesterday and I wanted to make something special for my dad. He is the best father in the world. Given me things even before I have asked for, stood by me always, made me understand my mistakes patiently and most importantly made me the person that I’m today.

I decided to make a card with the word ‘Dad’ for him. I used a patterned paper for the background and then sketched the alphabets on it. Selecting colors for the card was a challenge though. I decided to go ahead with shades of blue, green and yellow to make the card look nice and fresh. 🙂 I just had a day to finish the card and hence I decided to use tight coils and quillography to make a quick but good looking card. So here are some pics of the design and the card. Dad loved the card and has already displayed it in his showcase. Btw, this is also my entry for the Indian Quilling Guild Challenge # 1 🙂 What do you think? Did you like the design? Do share your feedback 🙂   Dad - card Dad 2Dad 3

Book Title – Quillography

I got the opportunity to work on a book cover after the author Destination Infinity saw my work on this blog. I have only seen book covers designed by Yulia.

I was super excited to work on it. How many times do you get the opportunity to work on a book cover and that too a quilled one. This was the first time I was designing for a book cover. I had to start from scratch. From coming up with a concept basis the story, to adhering to client requirements. It was super exciting! My entire dialogue with the author was on email, the briefing, the 1st design, the final design images…everything. And might I say, it went on very smoothly. This is an A3 sized design and took me around 30 hours to complete. Getting the shading right was extremely challenging…completely drained me out! But the final outcome was worth the effort.

So this is the final sketch of the title which was approved.

The color scheme which we opted for this design was shades of purple.I wanted to give this a complete gradient feel which I guess I was successful with. So here are the pictures of the design.  The design is still being made, but my quilling is done 🙂 It was an exciting project for me. Did you like it? Will share the final design once it is ready. This is my 3rd entry for Pratvam Progs contest as well.

This is how the final cover looks like and you could buy the book from Amazon.in using this link.

MOM is the word

Yesterday was Mother’s day and I had to do something special for my mom. I can’t describe in words what she means to me or what she has done for me. I guess this applies to all of us, no?
 
So this is what I made for her, a card with the word ‘Mom’ quilled. The card took me around 6 hours to complete. I used my mom’s favorite colors in the design just to make it more personal 🙂
 
So here is the sketch as well and the final design. Let me know what you think!

Quilled Typography

A special project for a special friend. This is quilled name board for a friend’s niece. He gave me the color scheme (purple and pink), the theme (floral) and the fonts and asked me to play around it. I made multiple sketches before freezing on this design. The final outcome was bright, clean and colorful. The frame was shipped to the US and currently rests in Zara’s room.

Was a fun project for me and a thoughtful gift from an uncle to his niece.

This is the final project:

CACTUS and COLORS

This post has been long over due as I was waiting for my friend to send over the pictures to me.

So this was a gift for Cactus, a company which is very close to my heart because I started my career there and also because I met my husband there 🙂

So this is a quilled typography of the brand logo which I decided to gift them at their annual party. Here I have used the company logo and used the colors of the 6 values (integrity, excellence, trust, fun, communication and innovation) to create the design. The idea was to show how the six values are an integral part of Cactus culture.
