You know who I’m talking about, that person who you could complain to about the endless pursuit of the perfect pair of jeans to makes you look and feel amazing. At least you’ve got each other 👖

Dream team makes my stuff look so good. Super moody emerald color palette, check. Vellum printing (my new obsession), check. Geodes and velvet ribbons and all the best props, check.

Had such a blast at #tuesdaystogether meetup yesterday talking about social + branding. When you post on social, your brand vision comes to life—your visual identity and content strategy come together through your profile picture, color story, brand voice, etc. It's all there. So think about how you look, what you say, and how you're saying it, and be mindful of how it should always feel on-brand, cohesive and consistent. _ And if you're curious to learn more and chat a bit about branding that grows your business, or about these fun little brand books to help keep you on track, shoot me a note and I'd love to geek out about it with you! • • • #wednesdaywisdom #create #creativelifehappylife #creativebusiness #creativebiz #creativeentrepeneur #doitfortheprocess #dowhatyoulove #girlboss #ladyboss #womeninbusiness #womeninbiz #glitterguide #solovelysofree #youbelong #flashesofdelight #thatsdarling #petitejoys #makeitblissful #beingboss #wemakecollective #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #thelittlevictories #wearethecreativeeconomy #tsbcalum #theimperfectboss

Ever since the #COY2018 was announced, my mind is all about #UltraViolet with a hint of moody. How much you wanna bet that we'll see a lot of lavender weddings this year? Or, if you're thinking of launching a business in 2018, not a bad color palette to lean into. — #moodboardmonday #personalbranding #brandstylist #brandingdesign #savvybusinessowners #create #creativelifehappylife #creativebusiness #pursuepretty #thehappynow #flashesofdelight #thatsdarling #darlingmovement #livecolorfully #petitejoys #pursuewhatislovely #ohwowyes #risingtidesociety #weddings #weddingdetails #weddinginspiration #weddingideas #weddinginspo #lawedding #losangeleswedding #californiawedding #socalwedding

Hope the first week of the new year is treating you well so far, but in case it's being a prick, here's a little guy to get you through it.

These guys didn't make it into the new release because they were a bit slow (ha!). To all fellow procrastinators and perpetual tardy-ers, let's all put the intention out into the universe that we'll be on time this year.

It’s gonna be a doggone good year y’all 🐶 • Not every one may know that in Japan they stopped celebrating lunar new year but they still observe the animal zodiac. They also combine this with an elemental characteristic, so for 2018 it’s the year of the earth dog. Its a strong symbol of harvest and signifies growth, death, change, rebirth. I guess it’s gonna be another exciting, scary year✨ • • • #newyear2018 #yearofthedog #watercolor #watercolour #watercolorpainting #watercolorart #design #artistsoninstagram #illustrator #homeinthestudio #create #creativelifehappylife #creativebusiness #creativebiz #creativeentrepeneur #doitfortheprocess #dowhatyoulove #pursuepretty #flashesofdelight #livecolorfully #makersmovement #makersgonnamake #wemakecollective #makesomething #makelivesell #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition #thelittlevictories #wearethecreativeeconomy #tsbcalum

Looking at the spread I’m still surprised how popular the Easter bunny is 🐰 I guess holidays and shop talk and stories about my husband being mean to me?

There’s this crazy feeling you get when things just fall into place, like it was all meant to be because the stars were aligned and you’re in exactly the right place with the right person, doing what you’re supposed to be. This little beauty came to be in just that way 🌙 - Minimal concepting, direction, feedback, and everything just fit where it was supposed to. It was the moment I realized how important it was for the designer and client to connect at that level, to breathe and think in sync, then call jinx and giggle about it. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in designing this suite together, and I felt so honored to be a part of their special day. - Thanks again @causewecanevents it was a delight to work on this and I absolutely love our custom suite 💕 - 📷 makes it come to life and @chloemoorephotography totally killed it 💕 • • • #watercolor #pursuepretty #thehappynow #flashesofdelight #thatsdarling #livecolorfully #ohwowyes #adventurebrides #desertwedding #weddings #weddingdetails #aislesociety #weddingsparrow #theknot #weddinginspiration #weddingideas #weddinginspo #weddingstationery #invitationsuite #weddinginvitation #weddinginvitations #lawedding #losangeleswedding #californiawedding #socalwedding #risingtidesociety #communityovercompetition

They don’t call it the most wonderful time of the year for nothing. Hoping for safe travels, good eating, and merriment for all today. My greatest gift is being able to pursue this crazy life that I love, and I can’t thank you guys enough for making it happen for me.

About

About

Let’s celebrate, for real

A writer, doodler, painter, and all-around dabbler, Lisa Aihara started Fiber & Dye on her 30th birthday after years of loving pestering from friends and family telling her to find a creative outlet to flex her art muscle, if you will.

In August 2016 she launched the greeting card line with a few cards that featured her original artwork and text. Just like the gal who created them, Our designs are always cheeky and mostly cheerful, with its sentiments sincere but not without wit and cursing like a sailor. Never intended to be taken seriously because let’s face it, she certainly don’t take herself too seriously either.

From stationery to custom wedding design to business branding, Fiber & Dye is a design studio that’s all about telling stories about your relationships, your love, your real voice.
We love telling your stories

Lisa draws inspiration (pun intended) from the people in her life for her designs. For the greeting cards, they’re intended to be that “aha” card, the one where as soon as you set your eyes on it you know exactly who you’ll give it to. That’s why they’re all oddly specific, and not meant for every one. No generic sentiments here. Your stories are nothing but generic, so why would the cards we celebrate with be blah?

With that same mindset, we create custom wedding suites that tell your story as a couple and truly reflects the both of you, and business branding that truly feels one-of-a-kind.
Painted and lettered by hand

All Fiber & Dye designs are painted, written, lettered, and designed by Lisa.

Watercolor has always been a medium that was special to her, because it was difficult and counterintuitive. It was an unforgiving medium unfit for frequent touch-ups, and forced her to be okay with the imperfections from organic strokes that she would instinctively want to “fix.”

Starting pointed pen calligraphy in 2014, brush lettering and hand drawn type has become a passion for her ever since. She believes that written text quite literally (pun intended) help to tell the story, strengthening, complementing, or juxtaposing against the images, and plays such a big part in that.

So we don’t use fonts to tell our story, nor clip arts. The calligraphy, watercolor, illustrations, and designs are done in-house, custom, by hand, all the time.
