Restaurant No. 1
Mill No. 3
Mill No. 3 is a boutique focused on creating an authentic shopping experience with curated fashions that are classic, versatile and affordable.
Owner and curator Morgan Pennington loved the idea of creating something very utilitarian, as her collection focuses on simple, handmade pieces with striking details. Mill No. 3 is a nod to the days when making quality clothing meant using quality materials that tell a story.
Mill No. 3 believes there is beauty in simplicity. We used hand-drawn patterns and a neutral color palette to both contrast and complement the modern typography. Hits of gold foil on all elements add a touch of sophistication, while hangtags double as business cards to illustrate the versatility of the brand.
Invitations are one of my favorite pieces to design. With endless options and techniques to put into an invitation, there's bound to be an interesting end piece.
Tactile and small enough to hang on to for years, invitations are definitely one piece of print that I believe will definitely never die.
From a laser cut wood invitation wrapped with a bandana envelope to a square glittery 1st birthday invite, these invitations show a range of techniques used.
