The year started with a dreamcatcher. More precisely, the name l gave to the paper boat that l had assembled and perched on top of the words Every journey begins with a first step, printed on the cover of my new blank book.
That first step has since evolved into a renewed focus on my graphic design business, Seaglass.
Seaglass is on the move, sailing to its new home alongside Looking Glass — where they will burn brightly together, like a lighthouse.
This carefully considered move will allow me to showcase my commercial portfolio as a professional graphic designer, present client testimonials and celebrate my creative circle — and, in the same space, share and write about other visual work I find inspiring.
After creating a visual to capture this change, I happily turned to Patricia Vila Nova for another rewarding creative collaboration. Together, we worked to translate the new Seaglass message with simple paper-play charm and metaphor.
The animation itself reflects the newly explored shores of visual storytelling. As a graphic designer, I enjoy the wonderful sense of excitement and growth that learning new skills can spark — and the challenge of capturing a client’s voice and story in a creative, engaging way.
Consolidating Seaglass visual communication and the creative inspiration captured in Looking Glass feels organic — and like the realisation of a beautiful dream.
And so, buoyed by the flow of nature, Seaglass is sailing on. I invite you to keep a look-out for new stories and updates.
