Hey you guys! Remember a few days back when I talked about kicking those excuses to the curb? ( Thank you for all your sweet responses about that by the way. I truly appreciate each and every one of you. ) – – Well, about two months ago, I started quietly working towards one of my goals. My back was at it’s worst, I had too much work, and was desperate to make things better. I had always planned on expanding my design studio, Rowan Made, beyond just myself. I just didn’t think it would happen so soon. ;) So in the midst of chaos and stress, I did something that OLD Bre wouldn’t have done. I brought on a new team member! Old Bre would have waited for the chaos to subside. Silly. So without further ado, I would like to introduce you to Rowan Made’s newest designer : Brianna Burton!!
I’ve gotten to know Bri online over the past few years and truly respect her eye for design. In a lot of ways, we’re kindred spirits. So amidst the chaos of stress and decision of adding somebody new to the mix, bringing Bri on board was an easy decision. And as fate would have it, she wrote this post on her blog the day before I emailed her. I was looking for some extra help. She was hoping to freelance more and eventually take her own leap. Good timing. ;) Bri will be a contract designer for Rowan Made and have full say over the projects she helps with. I’ve been a huge fan of this “no employee design team” method ever since hearing about it on Ghostly Ferns awhile back. If that phrase doesn’t sound familiar, feel free to click through this link to get the gist of it. Kinda cool, ehh??
This moodboard is for the first project Bri has been helping with. We are working with an event + floral planning business that is aiming for a brand presence that is wildly lovely. For that, we’ll be merging feminine elements with timeless touches, creating a balance between the two. More on this one soon! I have a feeling it’s going to be good.
PS. The website for Rowan Made is all coded. Woop! The only thing left is to get all of the portfolio photos in place, which is more of an undertaking than one may think. It’s coming along, though, which is good news. I’m hoping to launch everything sometime in early September, once the craziness of this whole wedding thing calms down.
