New Cards!

We are on a roll! After deciding to remove some of the items from our shop that didn’t feel like they were born of the inklings model, we felt a burst of inspiration and added nine new cards to our Etsy shop! More to come!

Here’s a little peak into the process of one of the cards — from messy little sketch of a loving angler fish to an adorable love card.

Free Printable! Walking Dead Valentines

Due to a little, er, issue with the nature of these cards, we have decided to offer them as a free download. Ahem…

There are six Walking Dead-inspired Valentines per sheet. Just print, cut, and hand them out! Perfect for your workplace, dorm, or your prison hangout. Surprise your friends with Daryl Dixon, Carl Grimes and Michonne Valentines this year! The final size of each trimmed card is approximately 3.75″H x 2.75″W.

The file has been set up to print on 8.5″ x 11″ letter-sized paper/cover stock. You may print as many copies for your personal use (read: don’t sell these whatever you do!) as you need. You can even share them with a friend. We love The Walking Dead, and we love you. Happy Valentine’s Day.

Dalton Cooperative Preschool Identity

Local Dalton Cooperative Nursery School was lacking a visual identity of its own. In fact, it just happened that another local preschool was using the same generic preschool logo — time to differentiate!

Our design utilizes the school building’s unique shape as the foundation for a one-of-a-kind logo.

We also created a new website for the school — a reference for current and future families alike. Slowly, slowly, we are becoming comfortable with (really) basic web work! Here’s a screenshot:

Pinnacle Prevention Identity

We are proud to have collaborated with a new Arizona-based business, Pinnacle Prevention, to develop their branding and business cards! (Have you heard of Pinnacle Peak? Neither had I!) Pinnacle Prevention offers services promoting healthy eating and active living for individuals and the larger community, with a focus on pediatric wellbeing.

The design uses stylized Ps (hooray for alliteration!) to form a pinwheel — a symbol of childhood, breath, and outdoor activity. We also developed the company’s tag line.

Our “Odd” Downton Abbey Card

Wow! One of the cards from our Downton Abbey Time Machine series was just featured in a Dallas pop-culture blog discussing “odd Downton Abbey items you can buy on the internet.” Hysterical. We love it! And we love Lady Violet…and her iPod. Find her in our Etsy shop!

Says author Amanda Wilkins:

The hit British series Downtown Abbey returns for its fourth season (to U.S. audiences, that is) on Sunday night on PBS. In honor of the show’s glorious return to our airwaves, I found 9 of the strangest Downton Abbey-themed items you can find online. God bless the Internet. I have to admit it. I am actually tempted to buy this one. I mean, it’s Lady Crawley listening to some tunes on her iPhone.

Music in Our Schools

inklings was asked to design the logo/illustration for a Pittsfield Public Schools band named in memory of a beloved science teacher (who kept butterflies in her classroom).  What an honor to be mentioned in the program for the premiere of Janey’s Stars Band this evening! A special hello to anyone visiting our page after attending that wonderful, inspiring performance!

Students chose a bright green shirt for the design!

The kids and the Eagles Band have me thinking it’s time to dust off my clarinet! But first, must finish building this website!
