We were recently given the chance to create the look and feel of an upcoming event in our local community. La Vida Youth Trust is running a talent show to raise funds for their youth workers in local schools. Below are the posters, flyers and web collateral we designed. Click here for more info on the event.
Colour co-ordinated colour pencils, I absolutely love it! Artwork and storage at the same time. via thingsorganizedneatly - designdust
Good questions beget good answers.
In this spirit, my personal project this Friday is The Being There Diary. Each day, it asks a simple question: “What was the very best moment of your day?”
I think there’s value to finding the beauty in the every day. We should look for it and be thankful for it. You can purchase your own copy here.
Great idea Frank!
If you haven’t already, you must check out this typographic web experiment from the Friends of Mighty! Internet Explorer 9 now supports WOFF (Web Open Font Format) so a collection of web/type/illustration masterminds joined forces to explore the typographic possibilities on the web. Frank Chimero’s input especially caught my attention. You can check it out here or by clicking on the photo above. You can also read more about the process from Frank here. I would love to learn more about these possibilities and even delve into it myself but for now I will just gaze in awe.
A few weeks back Rachel and I had a party to celebrate our engagement. We made a bazillion red paper cranes and put a pair in each little red envelope. The recipients’ name was personally hand-doodled on each invite. Below are said invites and a few shots from the night. We had a great time! Thank you all who came, we hope you enjoyed yourselves too!

Beautifully arranged data. The best kind of data!
I love identity systems that incorporate different textures and layers of visual information. So I’m really enjoying the juxtaposition of the pastel colors, black and white photography and thin line drawings that make up Astronaut Design’s identity for Antarctic Voice.
Decade Desktop #4 - Snack Battle!
Sometimes it’s a struggle to choose the healthy over the down right delicious! I don’t have the solution, but I do have a neat desktop wallpaper you can download for FREE! Perhaps it will remind you to make a healthy choice, or maybe just tempt you to choose the sugar coated, salt infused, fat dripping option. Let’s hope its the former. Enjoy!
