Design Studio: Alexa Maia

Alexa Maia Illustration

 

Welcome to my column: Design Studio, a backstage pass to my whimsical illustration factory. Please excuse the mess, a tiny Panamanian artist with a T-Rex heart actually works here. Unfortunately for you, no minions to tuck away the chaos.

 

C’mon down. Sure you can wear that. Pull up a chair. I baked chocolate chip cookies. Take a peak at my latest creation: A personalized illustration for a very special little girl who loves water as much as I love cupcakes, Alexa Maia.

Do you have something super duper special in mind? I’m happy to work with you to make it happen. Maybe it’s a charming wedding invitation + a quirky thank you card + a personalized gift tag for your little one + or heck, your entires website brand identity. I love working with clients one-on-one to transform their crazy ideas into truly unique creations.

 

My quirky illustrations are 100% handmade + painted from start to finish with my 10 little fingers + scanned to perfection for a one of a kind look that feels like no other. My whimsical characters are super excited to make their debut in a variety of places including, but not limited to:

  • Personal Identity: Stationary + notepads + gift cards.
  • Custom Invitation Suites: Wedding + baby showers + birthdays.
  • Brand Identity: Logos + social sharing icons + business cards.
  • Designs for Licensing: Special illustrations for merchandising.

 

If you have a project not listed above, please don’t hesitate to hit me with it anyways. I might be able to pull some magic strings. I love a challenge.

Changing Treasure Chest

 

Hi! my name is Iveth from the blog Mademoiselle Cranky Pants and this is my Treasure Chest!

 

Can you believe it’s October already? wow, It feels like the older I get, the faster the year goes by! But hey, I’m not complaining because it’s Autumn, my favorite season. I love everything about Autumn: the colder weather (yes, I have to admit I prefer the colder days!) the boots, the sweaters, the scarves and of course the colors on the leaves!

 

So today’s picks are Autumn inspired, I hope you love them :)

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed my picks! you can visit my Changing Treasury and enjoy the whole collection. Thank you!
