personally, i like my coffee hot (with some coconut creamer and honey, please!). that hasn’t stopped me from noticing some beautifully packaged cold brew coffees lately, though. it feels like cold brews have experienced a surge in popularity lately, but maybe that’s just me? anyways, there’s just something intriguing and beautiful about these dark glass bottles and pretty designs. they make me want to try all sorts of cold coffee drinks (check out all the recipes each of these companies provide!).

reminisce is a nostalgic collection of bold & sugar-colored hues, inspired by hazy summer days filled with simple, yet memorable moments of picking flowers and enjoying their beauty.

click on the image above to watch the reminisce video, by art gallery fabrics featuring laura grosso. they’ve done such a beautiful job capturing the inspiration behind my collection (i cried when i watched it the first time!). it’s sophisticated, vintage, modern and sweet!

my BIG news!

April 9, 2013

reminisce by bonnie christine for art gallery fabrics

hey friends! today i get to FINALLY share my BIG news with you, something i’ve been wanting to do since november (and teasing you along the way)! i am so (so so so so) excited to announce that i am art gallery fabrics newest designer! eeeee!

many of you know, being a fabric designer has been a dream of mine for many years, and i couldn’t be more excited that it’s finally coming true! most importantly, it’s with my most favorite company. art gallery fabrics is modern, fresh and fun. their cotton has a superior thread count and fine weave, which gives the fabric a super soft and luscious feel.

i have a thing for honeycomb, and when combined with vibrant colors and pretty designs i fall in love. this packaging design by arhoj for helt honey is eye catching, fun and different. it makes me just want to pick it up and put it in my basket (marketing goal accomplished, helt)! with pretty typography, unpredictable stickers that seal and a beautiful website to boot, this company knows what they’re doing. i hope you can gather a little inspiration from it as i did!

bonnie christine logo design for m.newsom photography

the titles i keep coming up with to describe what i do never cease to change (blogger, creative, entrepreneur, sewer, designer..), but one i didn’t imagine i would give myself anytime soon was brand developer. alas though, it’s happened. and it was fun.

when meghan contacted me to ask if i was interested in designing a logo for her photography business, m.newsom photography- i have to admit, i was a bit hesitant. though i knew i had the skill set, i hadn’t really put myself out their as a logo designer yet. meg and i seemed to instantly click though, so i told her i was interested in hearing her vision. when received, i knew we were a match made in heaven. she wanted something soft and sweet, but memorable too.

above is the branding board i created for meghan. it was so incredibly fun to design and though my time is limited, i really hope to be able to do some more in the future! the key for us i think was being able to see eye to eye on the vision, which made the whole experience really exciting, fun and rewarding.

here’s a little excerpt from meghan: “You’ve done such a great job translating my vision, and I’m so thankful and happy. You’ve just gone above and beyond everything I could have asked for, Bonnie. Thank you for sharing your talent with me.”

isn’t she the sweetest? visit her stunning photography blog, and be sure to hit up her facebook and pinterest pages, too!

my new iphone case

October 16, 2012

hello lovelies! a few weeks ago i asked for your opinion over on facebook and instagram on which of my patterns i should use on a new iphone case. well the votes came in and so did my new iphone case! i ordered it using casemate’s custom option and couldn’t be happier with the quality and fit for my new phone.

leafy tea packaging design

i adore this sweet packaging concept that belinda shih designed. it’s only for a hypothetical tea company, but i hope it becomes a reality, because i can taste it already! belinda says that the design is focused on the concept of afternoon tea – a time to unwind, re-energize, and relax after a long day of work. the package is therefore minimalist, calm in color and simple in shape, with a hint of the soothing elegance of steam swirls and tea drops. i think it’s brilliantly beautiful.
