NSS Mailers

I was so busy last week that I didn't have a chance to show you my envelope mailers for the National Stationery Show. The favorite part was creating my own custom stamps which was printed by Canada Post (Picture Postage).

Happy Persian New Year!

Only 4 hours to the beginning of spring and Persian New Year.
I wish all of you a wonderful year along with health and happiness.

Here is my 7 Seen, a tabletop arrangement for Nowruz
It's an ancient tradition and each family makes one of these
before the New Year or Spring Equinox.

By the way, you can see my previous years' 7 Seens here!

Packaging Details

I love packaging! In fact I love packaging design as much as I love to design the actual product!  
I have a box full of bits and pieces of pretty packaging that I've collected over the years, from 
candy wraps to stationery belly bands, perfume boxes, socks tags, name it! :D

Illustrated Map of North America, my NSS mailer

A crop of my mailer for National Stationery Show.
It is done by gouache and is inspired by antique maps.
I tried to incorporate many of the characters and elements that were in my greeting cards and notepads, like the mermaid and sparkler, mangoes, florals,...and of course my signature clouds!
