zed & bee

if i had to pick one area in the world i’m most interested in exploring more deeply it would be australia, hands down. there are so many exciting shops, designers, and students working there that i’ve already starting saving up to travel there next year for the d*s book tour. australia, here we come! ok, back to the point: i love hearing from australian design teams, so i was excited to hear from sisters billie and zoe about their new stationery company: zed & bee.

based in leichhardt (a suburb of sydney), zoe and billie specialize in modern invitation designs, focusing on using unique concepts and techniques whenever possible. i really loved the layout (and photo styling) on their site, and enjoyed being walked through the invite suites like a story, from start to finish. the kitchen and “guy’s retreat” are my favorite styles, but the watercolor package is gorgeous as well. if you’re looking for a little paper art inspiration this morning, click here to check out zed & bee’s website and here for their blog.

Loving the watercolor invite set from zed and bee. And gorgeous calligraphy!


that watercolor invite is on, like a whole new level of awesome – it is beyond beautiful


I love invitations that are mini “events” unto themselves. Lovely, lovely styling, too.


And cant wait to see Design Sponge downunder – we look forward to your visit grace.


do they use fonts for their copy, or do they write in calligraphy? I’ve seen both done, & these almost look as though they could’ve been hand done!
beautiful, & I do love how it’s like a story with each project they’ve done-too cute!


Good to see Australia on the design map! Hope you definitely make it for that trip down under next year.


I live in Aus, but next year im off to france. Cannot believe I’ll miss you guys by a whole year.


sorry lisha! but i hope it won’t be our last visit- i wish it was easier to get there more often ;)



ps: we may go to paris if we can find the funding. d*s editor anne lives there so i really want to visit her if we can :)
