I was recently asked to contribute the stationery for an incredible collaboration (as you may already know if you follow Akimbo on Facebook or Twitter). I’ll discuss that in all its amazing detail on Wednesday, but for now I’m thrilled to reveal the stationery.
I have seriously never been so excited about a new product. Paper schmaper, this baby is printed on wood, people.
I’ve been dying to do both a veneer invitation and an illustrated map, and this collection’s got the delicious double-whammy.
The inspiration board and brief I was given for this project reminded me of the dreamy yet playful forest scenes in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. With that in mind, I have named the collection Oberon, after Shakespeare’s famous king of the fairies. (Wouldn’t my year 10 drama teacher be proud?)
Check back in later in the week to see the full photo shoot that this was produced for, as well as a matching DIY project.
Until then, you can find details of the stationery products here.
Thanks to the always generous Sally at Poppies Flowers for providing the props and flowers.
