Creative Café #16 ★

gosh another creative café post already... i spoil you guys sometimes!

well the truth is that this post has been on hold for over a fortnight so today i decided to run it once and for all!

so stop what you're doing (i.e. reading this...) go and get a cup of tea, a cappuccino or maybe some hot chocolate if it's getting all autumnal where you live! (it is here...)

don't forget the biscuits!!! chocolate ones preferably, or some sweeties... ok, get some fruit if you INSIST!!!

settled and ready? 

right then, today's feature is all about a fabulous lady living right here in the Isle of Man, she's originally from Birmingham in the UK and this delightful girls name is Danni

i first saw some of Danni's work during the start of my second year at college. to this day i honestly can't even remember how i discovered it but i absolutely LOVED it right from the start! you won't find it hard to see why...

earlier this year Danni contacted me about a collaboration project so we met for lunch (at the Alpine... obviously) and ended up spending a few hours just chatting about art, music, fashion and most importantly, shopping in Birmingham!

the collaboration never took off for various reasons, but we stayed in touch and she helped me out with getting my website registered and stuff, anyway because of all this + because she's just so ruddy awesome at designing awesomely awesome things, i decided to feature her stuff on here so that all of YOU could enjoy it as well!

her style is very bold and bright, with fun colours and cheeky pinup girls and guys, she has some great themes in her work as well which make you give it a second (or third... or fourth) look and often make you giggle, which is also fab!

Danni also works on bespoke designs for people, you can commission her to create a logo/web/blog/flyer/poster design etc

she also sells awesome t-shirts featuring her work...

her work is always so vibrant and awesome! love love love it!

here you go, have a little look through some more of her gorgeous artwork...

golly gosh and  oh my don't you just luuuurve it all! so pretty!!!
