WEDDING OF MATTHEW MILLS TO STEFANIE SCHNITZER 01/06/2013
Last week I married my travel partner 'Stefanie', having met 7 years ago on a tour of Ayres Rock in Australia. We celebrated the wedding over several days with family joining us from America, Germany and Belgium. As a designer I couldn't help my self from designing the invitations, signage, even some pop up banners and a magazine.
The magazine is a German tradition to help explain to our guests about how we met. We asked for a donation of £2 per magazine and raised a total of £240.00 for Midland Air Ambulance and ADAC Air Rescue Berlin. (Named the 'Sonne' after a pub in Gosheim that Stefs grandmother used to run.) We couldn't of asked for better support from friends and family for making the wedding a day or days to remember. Thank you.

DESIGN WEEK FEATURE HEARTSEASE FARM
"Shropshire-based Matthew Mills Graphic Design has created the packaging for Radnor Hills water’s new Heartsease Farm range of soft drinks."
The consultancy has worked with Radnor Hills, which provides own brand products for multiple retailers, for the past 18 months and began work on the Heartsease project in November last year.
Matthew Mills, Matthew Mills Graphic Design founder, says, ‘They were looking for a refresh of the packaging for the range now that it’s being expanded into glass as well as plastic.’
He adds, ‘William Watkins, who owns Radnor Hills, wanted to show the farming background [of the company] – he wanted to get some of the history and heritage back, but with something that looked modern and appealing.’
The designs uses a duck graphic and an image of a traditional farm gate, with the colour palette created to reflect the flavour variants, which include English Elderflower Pressé, Traditional Lemonade, St. Clements Pressé, and British Blackcurrant Crush.
Mills says, ‘It’s looking to create an old farmyard style scene so it shows the heritage. I think [brands] are all trying to go back to things past, but I think this is the type of brand that will hold.’
