I'm so excited to announce that Melissa Tuck Photography has an updated look! I've been neglecting this post for awhile -- trying to catch up on all of my endless edits and emails -- so my blog readers have most likely already noticed my new logo and background on the blog. NOW it's finally time to give my new branding the spotlight it deserves! I couldn't have asked for a better designer - Rachel Link of linkedesign. This talented graphic designer/artist/creative genius (she wears many hats) made my vision come to life effortlessly, and I'm so happy to also call her a friend! Thank you, Rachel, for all your hard and AMAZING work. If your brand needs a facelift, I highly recommend her! She also created some amazing stuff for my wedding last summer too. : )

Without further ado... here's the collateral! (Not pictured that Rachel also created: digital pricing guide, contract design and shipping labels.)

I told Rachel that I wanted my new logo to look organic and whimsical. She took my inspiration and hand drew this gorgeous flower illustration and then vectored it into the computer so it could be used digitally across all of my collateral. SO magical (yet structured and readable). EXACTLY what I wanted.

TA DA! I now offer gift certificates! For all types of things: photo sessions, prints, canvases, books, albums, the list goes on... It would be a great holiday gift - contact me if you'd like to learn more!

Next up: letterpress business cards. This is probably my MOST favorite tangible product that was created. I commissioned the oh-so-talented Nicole Lissenden of Mink Letterpress (highly recommend her as well!) to print some snazzy business cards for me. We took Rachel's design and Nicole paired the antique pink color from the front and matched it to the back to add another dimension. I think they came out fabulously! I looove me some letterpress. So divine.

Letterpress can be a tad pricey, so I also wanted the option of a more economical day-to-day business card. Rachel created an identical layout for me and added burlap to the back. I printed them on 100% recycled stock at MOO.com.

I also have a new DVD case design! Clean, professional...

... and the disc inside is customized for each couple!

And lastly, new stationery. Ever since I can remember learning how to write, I always LOVED to send handwritten notes to people. In the age of digital EVERYTHING, I just think it's more special to send a handwritten note card and now I have beautiful stationery of my own!

Thanks again so much to linkedesign and Mink Letterpress for doing such an incredible job!
