New Guest Blog - A Week Inside The Hungry Workshop!

This week Jenna and Simon of The Hungry Workshop join us on the Guest Blog

This week Jenny and I are super PUMPED to welcome another brilliant creative partnership to the Guest Blog - say hello to Jenna and Simon of The Hungry Workshop!

As I am sure many of you know, Simon and Jenna relocated from Brisbane to Melbourne last year, and have set up their busy little letterpress studio in Northcote.  (And I must say... relocation is no mean feat when your key equipment weighs in at 1.5 tonnes!).  Since setting up shop here, Simon and Jenna have certainly hit the ground running - they've been busier than ever designing lots of beautiful businesscards, invitations, greetings cards and custom stationary which you can check out on their excellent website and blog. (You might remember their gorgeous Beci Orpin collab we mentioned recently over here).

This week Simon and Jenna invite us to share a week in their world - documenting step-by-step the process of creating a new greeting card - from inspiration to design, letterpress printing and final product.   The final product in this case is particularly special I must say .. Jenny and I were super chuffed to learn that in creating this new card, Simon and Jenna were inspired by 'the constant stream of awesomeness that is The Design Files' !! (Their words not mine!)

SO this week on the Guest Blog you will see Jenna and Simon create this new card design from scratch, and on Friday - the big reveal!  A brand new greeting card inspired by TDF!

ALSO we're very lucky that Jenna and Simon have offered a fab giveaway for one lucky reader - a greeting card pack containing 3 x Valentines day cards and 4 x our favourite
'Flanno' cards (some of which are pictured below), as well as their brand new TDF-inspired card which we'll see on Friday!

To be in the running, simply leave a comment on any of The Hungry Workshop Guest Blog posts this week before 10.00pm Thursday.  A winner will be drawn at random and announced on Friday.

Massive thanks to the lovely Jenna and Simon for joining us this week - do pop over to see what they get up to!

Leaving your comment on The Guest Blog between now and 10.00pm Thursday to be in the running to win this Hungry Workshop giftcard pack!
