CMYK Posters Launched Today

Today the Weston Design Co CMYK Posters have been launched and are available from Folksy and Etsy

CMYK Personalised A3 Poster - Date Specific

What is your colour?

Each poster is the representation of your specific date made up of from percentages of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black.

The percentages of each colour is calculated by:
where the day falls in each month
where the month falls in each year
where the century falls in each millennium
and where the decade falls in each century

for example:
15 September is exactly halfway through the month and is therefore 50% Cyan, etc A full break down of this rather complicated calculation will be provided when you order your print.

The Poster can be personalised further with a description of what this date represents. For example: "the day we met" or "the day you said you'd be mine forever" it's up to you.

If you would like a swatch of the colour emailed to your prior to ordering this can be arranged by email and paid by paypal for the fee of £5 (discounted when you order the print)

Poster is A3 (29.7 x 42cm), printed with archival inks on 225gsm Somerset Watercolour Paper which has a beautiful texture and looks stunning with the bold and modern colour palette.

Here are the three dates that we've mocked up:

EJ Website Launch- New Ranges

Hopefully in the next few weeks the Elinor Jenkins website will be launched.

To mark this (rather long time coming) event I will be also launching some new ranges of jewellery for summer 2012. Here is a sneaky look at some of the materials I will be using. I am a bit of a magpie with bright and sparkly things so the Neon Brights range is right up my street. I've also made some new simpler bridal / pearl pieces.

The materials I have become rather obsessed by are dyed jade and other semi precious stones as well as neon coloured ribbons and cord.

Bad Fairy

My bigger one had a superheros and fairy party to attend- so out came the sewing machine. Actually it was all made without using anything other than some elastic, sequin tape, pop socks and 2 metres of mesh fabric- and some second hand fairy wings.

It's a shame that my little fairy decided she didn't want to be a fairy on the day of the party but hey-ho I'm sure she'll get some more use out of it! Here is some evidence though that she looked pretty bad.
