Taking a pause from the blog.
I am still happily designing and you can see my work and contact me here katecunninghamdesign.com.
My last post on this blog was ushering in 2014. It is now March of 2015. I was 5 months pregnant when I last posted and eagerly planning and wrapping up work for my maternity leave. Our family welcomed a beautiful, happy, healthy baby boy in May.
Due to many different circumstances, my leave was unexpectedly extended. I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to spend this time with my family, but now it is time to get back to work. I have had incredible support during this time from my amazing husband, family, friends, colleagues and clients. I am so thankful. It is exciting to start this new chapter for Kate Cunningham Design. I can't wait to share my new projects and plans, so stay tuned!
SeaBreezes Clothing website! SeaBreezes is a lovely women's clothing store in the heart of Hyannis, MA. When they approached me, they were ready for a slight update to their logo and a new website. I updated their logo, expanded their existing palette, and designed and art-directed the site. I worked with the wonderful Sarah Wiesbrock to build it. The site includes a home page with 3 rotating images and a custom blog. It was created in WordPress so that the client has the flexibility to update most of the content themselves. See the full site here.

Head of the Charles Regatta took place last weekend. I was delighted last month when Boston University contacted me to design the invitation for their Head of the Charles Brunch, an exclusive presidential brunch held in Boston University's DeWolfe Boathouse on the Head of the Charles starting line. They requested a vibrant upscale invitation and envelope. As always, it was a pleasure working with the wonderful folks at Boston University's Development & Alumni Relations Department!
Just love this!

Emily Windsnap, to my website. This is the fifth book in the series. It was released by Candlewick Press. I continued with the new look that I established for the series last year. This project differed in that I worked with illustrator Sarah Gibb to create original artwork for the cover. The cover features a shimmery blue foil stamp on the title typography and a glitter spot gloss on the bubbles. Completing the package for a shiny, sparkly mermaid tale!
The other books in the series. Read more about the initial redesign here.
Bisousweet Confections. But first I have to say something about Bisousweet. Their baked goods are, without a doubt, the best I have ever tasted. They have a way of taking the classics and elevating them to a level that I didn't know was even possible.
When Karen Collins, the talented pastry chef and owner of Bisousweet Confections (formerly Babycakes and Confections) approached me she was in the middle of a rebrand. Her business was expanding and she wanted to refine her brand and take it in a new direction. I worked closely with her to create a package that included logo, submarks, graphic elements, palette and the Bisousweet pattern. Karen was fantastic to work with. You can read more about the process here on her lovely blog.
After we established the brand, we moved on to create some collateral materials. The sell sheet for their amazing cupcakes is above, as well as the new business card design. (The images for the sell sheet were taken by Michael Quiet.)
We have many more projects in the works. Stay tuned for updates!
