behind the camera


This summer I met a wonderfully talented photographer named Mary Claire Crow. She is a very cool chick and we immediately hit it off. The timing was perfect because she was looking to update her identity materials and I was looking for a wedding photographer. Tenn Hens was happy to oblige and it was a joy to work with a fellow creative.

We started with a new logo and color palette. She wanted an elegant and serene look that complemented her artistic style. She mainly shoots weddings and children so it needed a sense of whimsy, while keeping the color palette crisp. Mary fell in love with the vintage style of letterpress after seeing my invitations so we had die-cuts made of her stationary for the embossing process. Finally, we created a sign for her cool studio space in Old Hickory.

Big Winner!!

Recently, Bonnie and I attended a Ladies Who Launch luncheon in Franklin. We always meet interesting people at their events and often see a few familiar faces. It's a great way for Bonnie and I to get out of the office and network. At the event last week, First Farmers & Merchants Bank was giving away incubator spots to a select few lucky winners. And guess who was the first winner!! Me! Bonnie gets to go with me of course. We can't wait to get started this Thursday.

press check anyone?

We thought we would post a few images from a recent press check. We frequently go to the print warehouses and check our jobs on press... just to make sure everything looks good. Paper quality, colors, and placement are all things that we are checking. Julie Cook, our favorite account manager from Buford Lewis is always very helpful. This particular quarterly newsletter that we do for Tennessee Health Management is pretty big, so it goes on a monster of a press. Check this thing out!


getting hitched







you're invited…


Good weather brings out the party in all of us and this summer was full of celebrations. We occasionally get invitation design requests from clients who want a one of a kind piece. It's such a fun change of pace and we really get to use our artistic side.

Currier is always painting in her free time so we tapped into her talent for a few jobs that we received. She created some whimsical watercolor illustrations for a rehearsal dinner and a cocktail supper which were a huge hit.

Please let us know if you have an event coming up that needs a unique design touch and Tenn Hens would love to be of service.
