Happy Friday friends! It’s a new day and we’re debuting a new Featured Designer, Janet Phillips, who has a wonderful set of templates for us, Our Summer Calendar. Janet’s templates always have a simple, clean design, which makes them the perfect foundation for adding your own flair. We think you’re going to love this set of templates, take a look . . .
I asked Janet what inspired her to create Our Summer Calendar and what her design process was. Here’s what she had to say . . .
When I design, especially for templates, I try to think of what problem I am trying to solve. Of course, I value beauty and design, but I also want my products to be useful. I know that summertime can be a busy season for families, and therefore scrapping the summer can seem like a daunting task. Over the years I have created a number of ways to chronicle a summer. I thought these calendar templates would take something overwhelming and make it simple!
I also asked her what she thinks her strength as a designer is and what she would consider her “signature” . . . or what others would recognize her for.
That’s hard to answer since my designing has evolved. For ten years, I only designed templates. I loved templates and I still do. But I wanted to branch out and try something new, and so I started slowly to design kits. I suppose if I had to choose something, it’s what I mentioned above: I try to solve a problem with my designs. For example, in my “At My Desk” kit, I was literally looking at my desk and all that it represents to me. After that, I took the kit I had started (that had no particular theme) and let it move into the direction of being able to capture the work-at-home life.
The Babes created some gorgeous layouts with Our Summer Calendar. They really show off how versatile these templates are, and we hope their pages inspire you.
