I picked out these dribbble favorites this week because I was really digging all the colors. Plus, it’s interesting how work from completely different designers can look wonderfully consistent together. Sometimes I like challenging myself and make sure all the shots I pick out look cohesive. Like these or those. It’s an eye pleasing exercise! Does that make me nerdy?? Oh well. Thanks for being inspiring as always, dribbz.
You know that feeling late on a Sunday evening where the Monday blues slowly creep up? You realize your weekend sped by & you’d give anything for just one more day to relax. Last night, I couldn’t escape those thoughts and woke up just the same, so I needed to do a little exercise before digging into my workload. I scrolled through my most recent pins and pulled out like-minded images. These ones happen to feature botanicals and/or plants, some of my favorite things as they breathe life into any space. As a designer, it’s always fun playing with type, color, & shape – especially when it’s just for fun with no boundaries. We all need that every once in awhile, right?? So here is what I came up with. And now, onto the workload!
I think the brand build-out for Recipeace is SPOT on. So fresh, modern + bold, and fun. The designers at Leo Burnett did such a great job, I’m digging every aspect of it. These are some of my favorite images from the brand, but you can see even more right here. Talk about design envy. A good kick in the butt for this Monday!!
I just stumbled across this editorial project called the Colour Code, which was designed by Rebecca Hawkes with photography by Shuhei Shine. I was instantly attracted to the hair, overly saturated eye colors, and fun type composition. I love how they pulled the images behind the type in a soft of repetition fashion. Plus, all of it is so simple and right up my alley – I had to share. You can see more images from the shoot right here!
I’m so excited to tell you guys about a little collaboration I’m participating in for my good friend Krissy, a talented interior designer and blogger. She recently decided to run in her first half marathon in honor of her late grandfather, Charles Kozina. She’ll be training with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society while working towards her goal of raising $6,000 to help find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.
Krissy kindly asked me to donate a print to sell in her shop and I’m so happy to be helping out for such a great cause! Instead of designing something completely new, I decided to turn my make it happen desktop wallpaper into a print. It has such a good message and is actually something I would put on my wall, so we decided that it would be the perfect fit. There are tons of sizes available right here and you can even get it as an iphone case if you’d like! Very cool. Enjoy + thanks for having me, Krissy!
