My blog has been somewhat quiet lately due to some freelance design work that landed quite happily on my lap. And who can refuse a request from your Mum to help with branding her Gallery Gourmet products? A scrumptuous range of Australian Christmas fare including handmade puddings, chocolate and fig panforte (my favourite!) and rich fruit cake oozing with the juiciest dried fruits and nuts, topped with the headiest brandy and liquors. Gallery Gourmet also has a Chartcuterie range of Australian grown double smoked legs of ham. Delicious! They're based out of Queensland and feel free to visit their website for more info
We commissioned well-known Australian artist Jenny Mulder to paint a series of whimsical scenarios to use on the labels, website and other printed material (not everything is complete yet). I have fallen in love with Jenny's quirky style. She creates with seemingly simplistic brush strokes at first glance and very colourful, elegant and romantic imagery too, perfect for the Gallery Gourmet range. It honestly inspires me to break open the acrylics and go wild on a canvas. I might just leave that to the experts!
