I’m getting married next year! And through my wedding planning I have found a beautiful Irish blog called OneFabDay. When I found it a number of months ago it really inspired me to design my own freelance wedding stationery website, for which I did some preliminary work. There are some really beautiful blogs in the online wedding scene – they have opened up a whole new world of inspiration to me and I hope they will for you too. Get started at OneFabDay, link above, and before you know it you will find yourself surrounded by inspirational design.


Hello Lucky

Stumbled upon this pretty cool website – Hello Lucky – and thought it most definitely worth noting. Love the option of letterpress printing!

At first I wasn’t sure what I felt about this… designers putting their work out there in an environment where it could be copied or undervalued, but now I think I’m coming around to the idea. Check it out – launches today at 3pm and will host ‘contests’ for designers to submit pitches to buyers, winning pitch wins the work or ‘prize’. It will be great for freelancers, or even for design students wanting to practice their skills til the real work starts rolling in.

Found this really good post on creating effective online portfolios over on YouTheDesigner.

A friend sent me the link to Smashing Magazine today and I have to say it is just brilliant. Full of graphic design tutorials, freebies, showcases and inspiring posts… I highly recommend a browse.

If you are ever without your Photoshop and need to re-size or crop some images in a hurry, Pixenate offers online image editing with no fuss.

Just realised that I haven’t mentioned a very important Irish design secret on this blog – The place to look for graphic design jobs in Ireland.
