All those other things to do...

These days are mostly about getting the shop ready for christmas. I have put up new shelves and bars for all the new clothes and made tags of vintage puzzles . I am spending a lot of time bringing it all beautifully together in the shop, making sure that customers get all the information they need. Everyone who has a shop knows that is quite a bit of work.



On the picture above is also a sneek preview of the new design that will be in the shop monday. I can tell it is going to be a very girly day...




Today I am making a layout for a poster to be put up in the region. It has been great fun making. I wanted it to have a lot of pictures, mostly of products but also a few mood pictures from the studio and shop. I wanted the overall look to be a mixture of magazine layout and art excibition posters, and it should have the information peole needed : The name of the shop, address, pnonenumber, openinghours, a little map for direction, a subtitle that explain what I am selling and a little bit of writing explaining that everything is handmade in the studio etc. ( that part is not finished yet ( you see I am not the biggest writer but lucky me John is....so hopefully tonight we will finish the poster and send it to the press. I still need to change one of the pictures from the shop to a new one and better one. but this is what I have so far...

What do you think ?

If you have any idees, critique or maybe something that you find very important when you see a poster like that in your neighborhood....please let me know....

I love all your designs and if I'll ever have a child it'll hopefully wear something designed by you!
I love the overall design of the poster, but I'd put the map somewhere else. Maybe put up a little card dispenser with tiny cards stating the address, map and opening hours so potential customers can take it with them? I'd find that extremely helpful. Or print it in a postcard size?

Jeg synes din plakat ser skøn ud. God ide med mange små billeder, som giver en smagsprøve på det, som dit værksted byder på. Farverne er fine og der er ro på helheden :O)

Jeg hadde garantert kommet innom om jeg hadde fått øye på en plakat som det :-) Men når skal du egentlig begynne å lage klær til litt større barn..?

Mette said...

FIN plakat, Mette - men du skal lige have rettet til floedehesten.blogspot.com - den anden adresse virker ikke ;-)

Jeg synes ikke du behøver en brødtekst under overskriften, eller jo - måske en der er lidt kortere? ;-) så der kom mere fokus på overskriften - har du prøvet at bytte om på overskriften og underoverskriftens farver?

Og så er jeg altså bare vild med det billede af Seth :-)

That is a very cool poster. Certainly would be irresistible to me! And I love that top shirt, too.

Tycker att planschen är fin! Dina färger. Mina färger. Jag vill komma, kan du sätta upp några affischer här i Gävle också. Stadsbilden behöver dem!

Fin ny blus!!

Hej Mette!

Jag tycker din poster ser jättefint ut som den gör nu!

Vet du, jag tror aldrig jag svarade dig på det du frågade..om lampan i pressglas som jag gjorde.

Min man hade ett diamantborr och borrade genom glasskålarna och faten, allt medan jag sakta spritade vatten där han borrade. Det gick lätt och bra :)

Lycka till!
Kram
Mia

Hej Mette.

Jeg husker ikke rigtig om jeg har kommenteret her ved dig før, ellers er det i hvert fald på tide !

Du er jo fantastisk med dine hænder.
Posteren er rigtig flot, men må give Mette ret i det med brødteksten.
Rigtig flotte billeder, gode farver, og bestemt en butik jeg gerne vil køre efter.

Mange hilsner Maria.

If I saw a poster like that in my neighbourhood I would resist the urge to pull it down and take it home (a little selfish!)and I would be at the shop in a flash!.

I like your poster! and i really like your works. I bought some cups from your shop 2 or 3 month ago. I am using them everyday now.
