The Last Two Weeks + Rebranding
Hey everyone! I have two more weeks left at my current job, and there's definitely been a lot of mixed feelings. On one hand, I'm excited that I'll have a bit of time off and then hopefully jump right into a new job and get some fresh experiences. On the other hand, I'm still terrified that things won't work out. I'm doing my best to keep this thought as small as possible in the back of my mind. :) Working in the stationery industry has been amazing, and I'm truly sad to have to leave. I am definitely grateful for the experience, and I've discovered that I really enjoy designing stationery items so I'm hopeful to continue in some capacity in the future. That being said, I'm probably going to lean away from screen printing as a Ruby July focus. I still love (love!) screen printing, and am going to get a setup of my own someday, but for now, I'm swinging towards the world of stationery items. I've always had a passion for pretty paper and colorful pens, and I think this is a natural fit for me. With all of the preparing I've done to re-enter the job hunt, I've rebranded Ruby July! Still the same old me that you've come to know and love, but with a cleaner, more streamlined look.
As you can see, everything still resembles the Ruby July of the past, but it's a little more cohesive and simplified. I've designed a thank you card, letterhead, set of 4 magnets, and a business card, which are all shown above. What do you think?! I'll continue to check in and update everyone on how things are going, and I'll be working on getting more samples of my work posted as well. Hope everyone has a great weekend! :D
