The most exciting project I have worked on till date - a personalised 'story gift' for my friends Anushree ( @me.curlymess ) and Midhun (@justlikeabose)! Anushree had asked me for a book capturing all their best memories from various travels and life events. I thought a Camera book would be great as Midhun loves photography. I was randomly talking about this to my friend Veena ( @penkuttythewriter )when we stumbled upon the idea of a story gift. Veena quickly volunteered to create a little storybook out of Anushree and Midhun's real-life love story. Several whatsapp messages and voice notes later, Veena knew their love story by heart😃 She chronicled the highlights of their journey starting from their first meeting to their wedding day to their memorable days in the US soon after their wedding. Since she knows the couple personally, (who are as wacky and fun as any couple can get!) she suggested we take the cutesy route including their fun, quirky moments along with the most special ones. The storyboard was ready in a few days with 30 illustrations charted out for the final work (we have only showcased a few in this video, as it's too personal 😊). After writing a fun and heartwarming prologue and an adorable epilogue, she left the rest to the artist, Anushree! Anushree gave life to her own love story with super-cute illustrations that she created with loving care and attention to detail. Her curly hair, his loving smile, their fun chemistry, the friendship they share, it is all evident in the illustrations. I still can't get over how cute the story & illustration combo looks. And then the final task was mine, adding the Handmade with Love touch - creating the camera, the story book inside it, the vintage look and feel, the minimalist decor, the photo book, and the packaging.
