Wow! These canvases stopped me in my tracks. I find that the words intertwine with the photographs perfectly, creating a love story to share with everyone. I appreciate the typography Stephanie Morris (from Geezees) chooses as well as the different words to magnify that really bring out the beauty in these pieces of art. Everything is custom made, so you send in your photo and come up with the words yourself. You can use the words from your vows, your song or a poem. If you are creating one with your engagement photo you can write about your proposal. This is a great way to create a unique keepsake to capture the most memorable day of your life that everyone will be in awe of! It makes me want to have one or two created for myself.
Images from Geezees
I appreciate the idea, but the execution needs work. As a graphic designer, I only see the type distracting from the image, rather than flowing with it. And the choice of typefaces indicates a lack of overall design aesthetic.
It is a very cool idea, and there are a few canvases on the site that look better (mainly this one: http://geezees.com/shop-now/custom-canvas-16×20). Props to Stephanie for having a simple but great idea and turning it into a profitable business.
Thank you very much Inspired Bride for a great write up about Geezees. Hi Sara, what you have to remember is what is pleasing to one person is not to another. What makes geezees what it is , is that I work with the customer to create what they are looking for…Which may or may not be what I visualize. So the art is unique and custom to them.
