Mission: To sell all things retro-futuristic.
Hydraulic Graphix is a hybrid genre of graphic design combining steampunk elements with elements of fantasy, historical fiction and non-fiction, alternate history and horror. I apply these ideas to create eye-catching wedding logos, save the dates, invitations, out-of-town guest booklets, madlib cards, postcards, thank you cards, announcements, programs, seating charts, table numbers, and the list goes on into infinity!
By using Hydraulic Graphix, you are getting creative edge with 8 years of graphic design and production experience. I have a degree in Printing and Graphics Technology. You will not be disappointed when you use my services. I have the background to accommodate all of your wedding needs. I understand the many aspects of graphic design and printing, and I know how to creatively execute an idea. I offer quality & cost effective services personalized to your needs.
Our economy today has inspired me to open this shop. A good thing about today’s economy is that it has forced some of us to put our ideas in a box and, as The Cars sing in one of their hit songs from the 80’s, “shake it up”. We have went back to our creative roots and decided to do what we enjoy doing. With this creativity, comes hope. And with this hope, I present Hydraulic Graphix from Atlanta, Georgia.
Since my design influences come partially from industrial civilization in the 19th century, I am calling my Etsy shop Hydraulic Graphix. The idea is that life needs water. Imagine water traveling through an industrial pipe. Water being the idea. The pipe is Hydraulic Graphix. Life to the design is at the end of the pipe. The shop name is Hydraulic Graphix because I am giving new life and purpose to ideas that were born in historical time periods. Perhaps moving gripping ideas through the pipelines of our generation. Resulting in designs that could be described as retro-futuristic.
Hydraulic Graphix specializes in custom designs for weddings, parties, showers and other events. I also turn to vintage advertising, thrift and antique browsing, rock n’ roll, traveling to new places (often to odd roadside attractions), television shows and movies (many of which may take place in history) like Downton Abbey, Titanic, Boardwalk Empire or horror/fantasy shows like The Walking Dead, True Blood, Lost, etc......While doing these activities I watch for things like an old tobacco sign, a gramophone or any little detail that may look cool on an invitation. The themes and ideas are endless!
