typographic goodness

Love these typographic juice glasses from Crate and Barrel.


diy winter decor

Love these ideas as simple winter decor. With the weather we've been having (although I love the cold-I know, I'm the only one!) these seem to fit right in. The old fashioned jars (top) definitely add to the charm, so you may need to troll your favorite thrift/antique store! You could fill with just about anything-I'm loving acorns and natural bits lately...

2nd: Oh Joy

any help out there??

Do any of my amazing, crafty, creative blog readers out there know how to make these? A link or any info would be a big help!! Hoping to make a garland for the holidays, and I love love these stars. Wish I could remember where I got the photo....

I'll post directions if/when I find them!


growing a logo...

I recently designed a logo for a client that went through quite a progression from beginning to end. I wanted to share a peek at the creative process behind a logo design...

Of the original concepts, these two were the client's favorites so we went from there...

They became combined into this version, with a simplified color palette:

This version seemed a little too flat, so I dove in a little deeper to add visual interest and complexity into the design, while keeping the same basic message:

Here is the final version. We went back to a wider range of colors within the same family, and incorporated a more complex design while still invoking the feeling of a community.


signs, packages, envelopes and numbers

A random little collection of inspiring signage and packaging design...good typography, creative use of materials...and I have no idea where any of the photos came from, and for that I apologize!


rightleft radio

Everyone knows design, creativity, art, and music go hand in hand...i pretty much constantly listen while I'm working. And anyone who knows me knows my obsession with Pandora Radio- I love it!! So I'm excited to announce the rightleft radio station on Pandora!! Listen in on what I'm hearing these days... leave feedback on the station with comments, suggestions, whatever! I love finding new music to add. Hope you enjoy!

album art

Clockwise from top left:
Keane-Under the Iron Sea, Bloc Party-Silent Alarm, Death Cab for Cutie-Narrow Stairs, Manchester Orchestra-Everything to Nothing
Clockwise from top left:
Headlights-Kill Them With Kindness, Yeah Yeah Yeahs-Show your Bones, Modest Mouse-We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, LCD Soundsystem-Sounds of Silver

All day while I work I sit and listen to Pandora radio, and sometimes I find myself listening to a song just because I like the album cover... These are a few that I find unique and inspiring. There's such a wide range of styles, from illustrations, to photographs, to cool typography. It's definitely a medium that pushes the design envelope and tends to stay cutting edge. Enjoy my little roundup!!
