I fell in love with Lucie Rice’s work as soon as I saw it! A beautiful combination of both illustration and design, Lucie’s whimsical imagery is appealing to both children and adults alike. She has a special love for animals and an amazing sense of color and typography, all of which are apparent in her work. Her clients include Purina, the Grand Ole Opry, Penguin Group, and Simon & Schuster, and many more. She currently resides in Nashville, TN, with her husband and their beloved dog Lola.

Oh wow! LOVE Carson Ellis illustration. I didn’t know of her work before I saw The Wildwood Chronicles (written by her husband Colin Meloy) last year. Gorgeous book! Her use of typography and pattern within her work is superb. Her illustration style has a folklore/fairytale feel about it – imaginiative, clever and delightfully inspiring. Carson Lives in Oregon with her family and also illustrates album art for her husbands band The Decemberists. See more of Carson’s work here and the Wildwood Chronicles has its very own page here.

Steve Simpson’s lush and vibrant imagery is a delightful blend of illustration, design, color, and typography. Based in Ireland, he’s an award-winning illustrator of packaging and children’s books, and considers vintage illustration & packaging to be a huge influence on his work—particularly the work of Jim Flora, Mary Blair and Ed Emberly.
Love these simple prints by Faye Bradley.
This packaging for Flour Pot Bakery by Sara Nicely grabbed our attention… oh so subtly. Simple, beautiful typography! What’s not to love?
In Sara’s words: The Flour Pot Bakery Pot strives for a healthy diet with high quality, natural ingredients and environmentally friendly practices. This identity system was designed to convey the unique and handmade qualities of the bakery. The hand-drawn type was inspired by the wiry Christmas lights arranged throughout the dining area. I chose to design a menu that could be carried home without hassle. An alternate menu for lunch is available for guests who dine in.
I couldn’t find much information to share with you about this project, but these postcards are very nice.

Katie Daisy does some amazingly lovely hand-lettering… don’t you think?
Phin & Phebes Ice Cream packaging is so whimsical and fun, it looks good enough to eat! Designed by Jefferson Cheng, it was inspired by the chalkboard wall at the test kitchen of Phin & Phebes where they listed and sketched out all of their ice cream flavor offerings. The ice cream (and packaging) is now available at certain Whole Foods stores in the Northeast… I wish they’d come near me. :)
