Rachel in Lux

Howdy!


Today I want to share a fun project I recently completed for a friend. Last fall, a couple of our friends, Jordan and Rachel, moved to Luxembourg for a fabulous job opportunity. Rachel decided to start a blog called Rachel in Lux to record her adventures across the pond. She approached me to illustrate a blog header that was unique to her and would encompass her new life in Lux - a little bike riding, some gorgeous architecture and her companion Willow the Dog.




We wanted to keep it crisp and clean, so we limited the color palette on the white background. Rachel and Willow's sweet smiles, some breezy flourishes and subtle patterns keep the imagery whimsical and fun. I even created some additional swirls and category titles to tie all of the elements together.


All-in-all, I really like how it turned out (plus it is inspiring me to freshen up MY blog header!) and I think Rachel likes it, too - even better!


I highly encourage you to head on over to Rachel in Lux to read some interesting and funny posts on the adventures of a Wisconsin girl trying to figure out life in Luxembourg!


Have a great day,
