The calligraphy by Mara of Neither Snow is always so, so beautiful – and these menus are no exception. Mara collaborated with Amber from Pitbulls and Posies for a welcome dinner at a Jose Villa workshop in Mexico. Amber combined Mara’s lettering with a beautiful floral laser cut border for added texture and dimension. Love!
From Mara: I worked on this menu last year with the ever talented Amber Moon of Pitbulls and Posies and Jill LaFleur for a workshop by Jose Villa in Mexico. The menus welcomed conference attendees on the first night. Jill put together a jaw-dropping inspiration board that evoked a festive, relaxed hacienda dinner party under the stars.
Amber integrated my scanned calligraphy and printed it using an inkjet machine for vibrant color and the ever elusive white “ink” (the white is the negative, not-printed space). The final touch was to take this laser-cut paper with the inside removed and used as a border. I then penned the names of the attendees. A fun combination of DIY, problem-solving, repurposing existing laser-cut products, calligraphy, and personalization.
Beautiful as always Mara! Thank you!
