We work closely with our clients to ensure that their identity truly reflects the essence of their brand.
Nicola Jarvis is a highly respected artist and hand embroiderer based in Warwickshire. The crest element of her logo initially started as a doodle in a pad, which Nicola loved. The initials are reminiscent of an embroidery monogram and the crown references Nicola's training and teaching at the Royal School of Needlework as well as her use of crowns within her work. The crest was a wonderful collaboration, once Nicola had our initial sketch, she then drew a more detailed version that featured typography from a sixteenth century illuminated manuscript and a crown based on an engraving of a Bavarian Queen's crown dated 1840. We then crafted this on a Mac, refining the typography and adding symmetry to the crown. The completed crest is crisp and modern but with a foot firmly rooted in the past. We can't wait to start applying this crest to Nicola's packaging, we're thinking wax seals and gold foils! #nicolajarvisstudio#crestdesign#warwickshiredesign#lorddesignstudiouk#handcrafted#thedevilisinthedetails#brandingdesign#embroiderydesign
I have a rough draft! Shattered has an ending...sort of. It took almost 39 handwritten pages to get there, but answers are beginning to take shape for a novel that will lead to my own fairy tale universe...I hope. No doubt the tale will evolve when I type it up and edit it. More answers will be uncovered. New questions will arise. I'll be proud of some parts, and utterly ashamed of others.
These are big dreams and goals that I am determined to drag into reality. Plus, my astrological chart said that I've got the grit and tenacity to make it happen, so...literally written in the stars...maybe.
I've allowed the word "no" to permeate too deeply into my thinking. It's manifested itself throughout my life, simply saying I can't have this or be that...but without giving a sound and logical argument. I didn't deny it a place within my thoughts because it came from within me, and once it had its footing, it became comfortable. It became believable, and convincing that positive aspirations and changes for myself were just wispy dreams and fallen pixie dust.
I had failed to ask this "No" a follow-up question: Why not?
Why can't I try? Why would it be so terrible to take calculated risks, or buckle down for a long haul that may not lead to the place I romanticize in my daydreams. Why not?
Saying "no" is an abrupt ending; a painful roadblock that lies to you saying that what you wanted probably wouldn't have come to fruition anyway. It's a false comfort that we almost willingly fall for...because trying is hard and scary.
Perhaps, if we can train ourself to equate "No" with "Comfort," then we can also adjust "Hard" and "Scary" to something that moreso resembles "Worthwhile" and "Exciting"...or, at the very least "Not That Bad."
I'm not where I want to be. So, I'm going to keep going forward... #Shattered#BecauseWriting#JackBKnimble#TheDevilIsInTheDetails#SecondJob#ItDoesntPayMuchYet#HappyPlace#Bliss#ItMakesSenseHere
Found some @twoearallen sized doors on the #midway last month. And the model of plane Allen sat back seat in while hunting subs for the Navy. And this exact plane my BDA brother @jimchappell41 worked on when he was in the Navy like 100 years ago. #youresoold#proudnavyfamily
Btw all the #embroidery on this couture #1930s mesh/net #vintagedress is HANDWORK 🤚 😱😍 -upon close inspection, (another marvel-my god how long did this take?!) the dress was sewn, and the embroidery was done *after* - it’s clear as it is not uniform and seems to meld and flows precisely to accommodate the frame of the lady this was made for. Amazing. I was at the grocery store, and appreciate all the DMs to relieve me of the “it doesn’t fit me and never will” trauma this gorgeous piece triggers. 😙. #thedevilisinthedetails#rarevintage#1930svintage
Re-Previous post...I only had time to see what the machinery’s handbook said about this and this is all I could find. There is a Mil-STD for this but a quick google searched didn’t find it. Like old man Frank once told me, “the only perfect part is the part that meets the print.” So if an AD (assembly drawing) notes which direction to press for a pin then that is what you follow. If it’s your product then you make the rules. Without AD guidance the chamfered or beveled side goes in. The rounded side is intended for a slip fit for ANSI pins. Double beveled/chamfered are intended to be double press fit. ISO metric typically have double non symmetrical chamfer. I believe the longer chamfer goes first there. Thanks for all the comments.
Framme. Med en vackert rundad avmaskning. Vägen dit tråkig att gå. Har ännu inte bestämt mig för om the devil is in the details eller om det inte är mödan värt. || Love the smooth, rounded edge but not quite sure if it’s worth the effort. #tubularbindoff#thedevilisinthedetails#knittingdetails
Sharing one of my favourite photos by @philcrozier of our #IHMardaloop bathroom featured in this month’s @styleathome magazine! I loved creating this marble plumbing niche in the shower. #thedevilisinthedetails
