For the past few months, I've been working with the very talented Aubrey Hord of BroTies to create a handcrafted vintage look and feel for the BroTies brand. You can see my original post about the logos here.

The end results make me so incredibly proud.

The rustic logo incorporates vintage-inspired handwritten fonts and arrows. Black and white business cards seemed boring and unoriginal, so a custom vintage chalkboard design served as the background for her business cards. To continue with the vintage vibe, kraft paper bands were used to create her custom packaging. As you can see, Aubrey has also placed the logo on her kraft show booth and vintage mannequin to continue the rustic-vintage vibe.

It was so fun to work with this super talented Tennessee-based business. Please be sure to check out her handcrafted bow ties. They are so lovely!

I also need to give one last shout-out to Jessica Hord for first connecting me with her talented sister-in-law. In October 2012, this job put me on the fast-track to self-employment and living my Gerald & Joan Preservation and Design dream. Aubrey's vintage mannequin featuring my design (shown above) brings the entire experience full-circle. I can't even begin to describe how happy this project has made me. It's my vintage-inspired design dream realized. I will always be grateful to Jessica and Aubrey. You guys are the best!
