Wicked Awesome

I was thrilled to see the fabulous accessory shop, Wicked Peacock, featured twice in the past two weeks!  Both North Shore Living and Racked noticed the inspiring creation of my friend & client,
the inimitable Ms. Silvana Costa.

 Silvana and I met several years ago at Artifaktori, and bonded over a shared love of 1970's printed palazzo pants & bold jewelry.  So, when she quit her day job to grow her budding accessory brand and asked me to create her logo & look, it was a no brainer - of course, I said yes. 
 Silvana has an incredible mind for business and a sharp eye for style.  Her ambition, curiosity & constant growth make her incredibly fun to collaborate with.  Despite knowing this, I was still a little awestruck when we finished the sign design for her first brick & mortar shop, and she told me she had nabbed Best Dressed Signs(who's work I had been unwittingly admiring all over New England) to bring my Wicked Peacock sign design to life.

Silvana recently posted about the sign making process, starting at the beginning with the design & me in my studio...

...but what I cant get enough of is the next post about the physical sign creation.  I cannot get over how cool it is to watch this happen to something I designed.  
It is so inspiring and rewarding to watch everyone do their thing!
Check out the Wicked Peacock blog and Best Dressed Signs for more on this incredible sign artistry, and visit Wicked Peacock online or in Rockport, MA for your new favorite accessories :)
