Here at Emma, we often say that your emails should be personal, timely and stylish. But how about making them a little romantic every now and then? Our brand-new, limited-edition design theme for Studio Design is here to help you promote your Valentine's Day festivities in style.
(These examples are in black and white because part of the beauty of Studio Design is that you pick your favorite combination of elements and textures and colors … and then a designer makes a custom creation based on all of your selections.)
Let's take a look at a few of my favorites from the new gallery.
Heartstrings textureI personally envision this pattern being repeated in the background of a stationery header, paired with the cupid motif (look for element #6 in the Valentine's Day gallery as you're building your design) to create a dynamic contrast of the cupid sketch versus the simple, tiny hearts cascading down the header.
I think that playing with a twist on typical Valentine's Day colors (perhaps some darker reds with much softer pinks) would add a really nice, interesting touch.
I absolutely love the versatility and sensuality of lace. This texture could easily look polished and sleek, soft and romantic or even vintage-boudoir.
With this texture, the font and color scheme would really have a big impact on the final effect of the design, so be sure to think through what the goal of your stationery is before making your selections.
Lots of people like to go the traditional route with hearts and flowers, but how about something more unexpected like these sweet birds? This image will convey the same romantic tone, but in a fresh way. The illustrated look of these lovebirds adds an especially warm touch.
The rose element looks classy and fabulous, and I would especially love to see it blooming out of the edge of the stationery.
When placed over our texture options, it really pops aesthetically and is a great visual summation of Valentine's Day.
This is a cutesy texture that works into that hand-made, collage-chic aesthetic, and it would pair nicely with some of our other illustrative options. It wouldn't really have to be overtly romantic because a slightly offbeat color scheme could easily lend a more alternative, funky-flirty vibe to the design.
