Hello I'm Ginette, I do graphic design, art, illustration and surface pattern design.
Here on my blog you can see the pictures i've been making, stuff I've been up to and the inspiration I found in fun places like Whistler, Canada and Oxfordshire, England.
You can also view my portfolio for more of my design work, find out about bespoke wedding stationary and take a look at the cards and prints for sale in my shop.

I designed wedding invites, menu, table plan and order of service for my friends' beautiful sunny wedding in Kirknewton, Northumberland. They asked for lovely typography, a hint of 'french grey' (they took an excellent french holiday to buy their wedding wine) and to include some heather from the moors. I really enjoyed laying out some beautiful type and it fitted in perfectly ith their laid-back wedding full of creative friends.
After the wedding we visted Bamburgh Castle and the beach in the sunshine, Roughting Linn waterfall, a total hidden gem, and drove over the causeway to Lindisfarne.

Here is a little look at a big project I have been working on for Whistler Fitness Vacations. I created a new look and feel for the brand with beautiful and modern fonts and a lovely, inviting and functional colour palette, and also used some of my own photography of Whistler scenery. I worked on catalogues and a series of workbooks and the colours and design elements were also used across the new website and blog.

We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance. A wise Japanese proverb! This is my November calendar page which you can download for free on my homepage to stick up in your house to remind you to dance often like these two crazy cats! I don't often draw people so thought I would challenge myself with this one.

I really enjoyed making last years calendar of lovely quotes, and sharing it on instagram all year, and seeing it in all of my friends' kitchens. This year seems to be moving faster than me so the calendar starts with February with a lovely quote about adventures from JRR Tolkien. You can download the page as an A4 pdf to print out and hang up in your kitchen too, find the download on the homepage.

I have been designing honey labels for Mill Brook Apiary in Cholsey, Oxfordshire for several years and have built up a good collection of bee facts which go on all the jars.

Here is the July page from my 2016 calendar of lovely quotes, featuring some very sensible words from Ratty of Wind in the Willows about the joys of the river in summertime. Henley Royal Regatta, the ultimate messabout on the river, is happening this week so here is my pair of screenprints 'Regatta', featuring the iconic striped boating tents in Henley, and all the ingredients in a classic glass of Pimms.
I have been really enjoying the instagrams of Lizzie Carr which is full of lovely pictures of the river bank from her rencent adventure travelling Englands waterways on a stand up paddle board. Well done Lizzie!
