The Dilemma of a Well-designed Wedding

The wedding countdown (not that I’m keeping track) has reached less than a month – 25 short days until I tie the knot, get hitched, jump the broom (insert your favorite wedding euphemism here).

Planning a wedding as a graphic designer is a unique ball game. When you mix an already established habit of overthinking visual details with a plethora of design potential, (not to mention a tendency to be harsh in design self-critique) it is a challenge to create pieces you’re happy with.

For the Love of Tennis

We’re excited to share the grand reveal of our newest web project. You may remember the identity work we created for Charlotte Indoor Tennis Club. Our newest challenge: taking the clean, energetic feel of the reworked identity and expanding it to the club’s website. The site, which is now live, serves as a resource for members looking to book court times and track recent news, and also for visitors looking into all that Charlotte Indoor Tennis Club has to offer.

A Strengths Workout

As the wise Dolly Parton once said…

“Find out who you are and do it on purpose.”

Over the last few months at MCG, with the help of the strength’s experts at Throwing Words, we have been working to find out who we are at our best (and maybe-not-so-best). As we begin understanding how we’re individually wired, we can figure out how to utilize the unique skills each person brings to the table. Each member of our team took the Gallup StrengthsFinder and received a print out of how each of the test’s 34 themes ranked for us individually.

2013 in Review

Just when you thought all of the hullaballoo of a new year had subsided we’ve gone and given you one last look back at 2013 (you may also remember our fashionably late recap from last year). Despite any number 13 superstitions you may have, 2013 turned out to be a lucky year for MCG.Hope your year was filled with as many wonderful memories as ours was. What were some of your hilights from 2013?


The List(s)

I’ve never been much for New Year’s resolutions. But, the start of each year always compels me to evaluate my habits. Usually this means new organizers, the latest app which will revolutionize my life, introducing new strategies for keeping my pantry stocked or another such time-saving idea. The thing is, I’ve always struggled with staying on top of my to-do list and yet I’ve always been a little obsessed with organization. I think it has a lot to do with being a designer and how our brains work.

Happy Holidays from MCG

Each year MCG takes on the tradition of designing a gift as a small thank you for our clients. Gearing up for the holiday season, this year had a different feel. It has been a year full of changes for Moonlight: Karen stepped into retirement, we said goodbye as we sent Brady and Jenni off on their next life adventures and then said hello as Kerri and Hannah joined the team. With our new dynamics we wanted this year’s gift to be a true creative collaboration, giving us the opportunity to spend time with each other outside of the office. Plus, one thing hasn’t changed, we have wonderful clients that we want to take time to appreciate.
