New Skills


One of the things I decided recently was to start doing my graphic design work a little bit more legit (you know, instead of in Word and Paint…).  It’s been fun to re-learn Photoshop, and I’m hoping that in the future I’ll be able to offer more logo/graphic design as a bonus to my web clients.  I thought I would share what I’ve been working on:

A logo for Nantucket Gift Baskets and a logo for myself:

I’m working on creating an image for my website work, and the logo was the first step.  I knew I wanted to stick with my mehndi “theme” (long, long story, but it represents a lot to me) but I knew I wanted to introduce more color and a little cuteness.  

I, personally, like the stark simpleness of this blog; it’s clean and doesn’t distract from the photos and stories, it does not, though, show what I’m capable of as far as web design/development and I know a lot of people might find it boring and bland.  

Over the next few months, I’m going to be building a new online presence for my web design portfolio and that means more color, a fancier site (rather than the one page I currently have), and less ho-hum.  Hopefully this is a good starting point.

  1. Hi Amber,
    The tea party pics were soooo cute! Hope everyone had a great time! I really like the Nantucket Basket logo–caught my eye right away and fits in with Nantucket theme. Personally, less impressed with Au Coeur design–mainly the left side design–sorry! You are so talented to be able to do this! Must be a lot of fun doing on computer and using artistic skills and imagination. Good luck.

    Amber – please tell me about the “mehndi theme”! I love your blog, but would like to hear more about how you got started and where you are headed. You are a very talented young woman!
