San Antonio Chamber Music Postcard Design

When I started my career as a graphic designer, I never imagined the variety of businesses that I would come to know thanks to my amazing clients. I’ve worked with attorneys, schools, home builders, chefs, animal non-profits, produce companies, photographers, electrical contractors, and so much more! It’s been wonderful to be able to learn so much about so many different industries! There are still a few clients from my very first year in business that continue working with me today, almost 11 years later. One of them is the San Antonio Chamber Music Society, a non-profit organization that brings outstanding chamber music concerts to San Antonio. For over a decade, I’ve designed, revamped and maintained their website as well created a few promotional pieces like these postcards that are promoting two of the next concerts in their 76th season. I feel so much gratitude about the opportunities that I’ve had to work on such diverse projects but more than that, I am thankful for the long-time clients that have been with me from the start, like SACMS!

Sneak Peek: Dream Big Invitation

Planning an annual event is seriously hard work! I have never personally organized one… but over the years I’ve designed many fundraiser invitations, websites, programs, and flyers for people who have. I’ve seen my clients coordinating and preparing months in advance to put together beautiful and fun evenings that raise money for amazing causes. I’ve learned that there’s a lot of details that need to be arranged ahead of time, so it’s important to start on the design pieces early on. So while I haven’t done an event myself, I am in awe of those around me who do take on the challenge!

With that said, here is a sneak peek of an invitation I am designing for the Montessori School of San Antonio’s 2019 Annual Spring Gala. It’s not quite finished yet… we still need to update some information before it’s ready to go out, but I just couldn’t wait to share a bit with you now. I’ll be sure to post the final printed piece in a few weeks!

LifeSafety Certificate Design

While I generally work with local businesses, every now and then I get to work with people from other parts of the country. Last fall, I started working with a great company based out of California. Life Safety offers high-quality and safety related training programs for businesses. I had the opportunity to help them revamp their old certificate templates, and together we created a new and modern design! So, it doesn’t matter where you are located, if you’re looking for services from a graphic designer, reach out to me. Always here to help!

3 Easy Design Tips

Whether it’s motivational quotes, funny memes or holiday messages, everyone loves sharing graphics on social media. Here are 3 easy tips to make your graphics look their very best:

1 Limit Fonts

Use only 1 to 2 fonts on your graphic. Too many different fonts styles can create visual chaos and make the design look messy.

2 Align Elements

Alignment keeps things visually organized and creates a professional look.

3 Use White Space

Don’t try to fill up all empty areas. White Space balances out content, gives focus to what’s important and make a design look less cluttered.
