When I’m not in sweats working on branding or websites I get to design a real life print publication AKA every designer’s dream job. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What makes it even more pinch-myself-this-can’t-be-real-life is the fact that I get to work with incredibly talented people to make it all happen. Like @drewesmith who is a styling force, @katesupaa who makes me feel like a legit model in front of the camera and @designperfection who makes LIFE SIZE FLOWER WALLS, I mean. Who can pull this off? My team. And I’m telling you, it takes a village to bring dreams to life. Real, real proud of my village. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All this to say- ISSUE 4 of @focusonthecoastweddings is here, get ready to get ya one 💕
My fave lady @drewesmith telling me to be relevant on the internet, OR ELSE! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyone else in, or getting over a social media funk? Maybe it’s Matt recently diagnosing me as an introvert, through a series of Facebook links, no doubt. (At first I was all “Wait, have you MET me🤨?!” But then: “Eh, yea? I guess I can see it.”) Or maybe it’s the whole ‘What’s the point, the algorithm’s hiding everyone’s crap anyways, I think I’ll just watch an episode of Grace & Frankie instead.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Either way, I’m getting back in these squares. Even if my posts get lost in the drunk drawer that is currently Instagram. Can I get a Uh-huhhh? 💁🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 by my other fav @katesupaa
So excited to launch one of my favorite ladies' brand and website today! I love love love working with such talented women 💕
Setting the mood for a new branding project in the works ✖️✖️
Heading back to the coast after a week in the desert lovin' on family and remembering to stop and smell the cacti 🌵
Celebrated with a margarita last night with a lime and no mix... Ok I celebrated with tequila last night! The new Studio Wilde just went live! I'll be making tweaks here and there to details but it's done and now we're in the honeymoon stage. 💕
A celestial reward in Big Sur after freezing in a gorgeous snow covered Yosemite camp ground for two days. When I start to think my heart is full, she shows me more. Happy earth day, respect our mother. 📸: @thegoodlifefilmco
Hey there 👋 I’m taking a play from #thegramgang and sharing my mug and what may turn into a long introduction to all of you wilde ones. I’m Haley, the usually bed-headed and barefooted designer behind Studio Wilde. I live in Coastal NC and, cliches be damned, I know salt water can cure anything. I’m an ambassador for self-love and girl gangs. I believe we should all be more of who we want to be and less of what we’re supposed to be. Having been where most of you are, tackling your dreams from a quiet corner, I help small businesses grow a little louder through their branding and websites. I’ll tell you till you believe it that mistakes are good, your fears mean you’re growing, and you need to make a mess in order to make your way. Tell me about YOU - I’d love to insta-meet you!
Workin' on a thing.
Keep an eye out for the new Studio Wilde. Updating the brand and website to reflect what’s really going on behind the scenes these days. We know creativity is a wilde mind and a disciplined eye, so we’re slipping into something a little more brave!
Be willing to be a beginner every single morning. We all get caught in that funk- our minds suddenly a quiet hum of a refrigerator. How to give your brain a jumpstart and take back what you could have sworn was yours (sanity/creativity/the ability to find a synonym for creativity)? Remember how hungry you were when you started. Show your teeth, baby. Because we all need to cultivate a beginner’s mind by seeing, learning and exploring everything as if for the first time. Stay hungry and you’ll always find a meal.
Happy birthday to this wide-eyed rebel man. You’ve taught me things I can’t find words for. Heart magic. Like how to learn to trust myself, wonder at everything and then to let it all go. This view, like so many other things, I wouldn’t know without you.
I always love to see my sites connecting people. Some clients just make work plain fun, @lovesweetretreat was definitely one of them. You know the type of happy where your cheeks hurt from smiling too much? 'Til next year #lovesweetretreat !
Sneak peak at the freebie @sweetandwildemag is throwing into the goodie bags you'll be getting tonight at the @lovesweetretreat Kickoff Party! Can't wait to celebrate all the creative women Wilmington gets to show off 😘
It started the way most good ideas do- over a glass of wine. Coming soon: Sweet + Wilde Magazine. Tales of the women. This one's for the ladies. Start following along- @sweetandwildemag- so you don't miss a thing. Soberly brought to you by @studiowilde and @pineapplestudios (it was one mimosa, on a Monday... Totally ok, guys).
A little personal clip I made of my short trip to AZ this summer. I'm going to be switching gears and posting here versus my personal IG 👌
A glance back at the evolution of this sweet branding. If you want to meet a real live mermaid, @shepdunc is your girl! Branding and website will be on the site soon 🐬
Just sent some designs off to our friends at Wilmington Weddings and Events for their first meeting tonight!
Showing off the branding + website design for @seancarrphotography on the website!
