changing lives ::: print piece

Happy Monday! Today catalogs a recent print piece that I designed for a client.

In this digital world, physical print designs are few and far between (for me anyway). I love the story & transition that you get from holding something in your hands. This piece was developed by a media team of four including myself. And I'm probably most impressed with the ability to layer concepts/ideas through the transistions in this piece (which—it's often difficult to know if the viewer ever makes the connections).

So there you have a snippet of my graphic design work. Here's to having a great week, friends!

Had you seen this lovely print floating around? Now we all know it's true source. And oh how I love Mr. Lewis. If I played the "if you could meet anyone famous" game, I do believe he'd be nearly the top of my list.

summer please

Am I the only person battling a serious case of summeritis? Dreaming of the days when there was such a thing as summer break....and hoping I can plow through some work to embrace the weekend.

Hoping yours is also a great summer *weekend* break!

Probably fitting after yesterday's post to quote one of the greatest creative entrepreneurs of all time.

A good day for a little Wilde inspiration. Never a bad day for handrawn type.

I've had this inspirational print tucked away for a while, and today seems fitting. Last weekend I photographed senior portraits, and not only that they are seniors about to foster out of the system. I RARELY take portraits and it's such a different experience. It was more than a pleasure to glimpse into these young lives for a few hours, and I think this quote by an original photojournalist gangster captures it perfectly (as she always did).

Any of my readers portrait photographers? What do you love most?

Occasionally I find myself feeling entitled to various things in life. This quote is a needed reminder of how untrue that really is—we aren't entitled to anything. It's not about what you get but rather what you can give, right?

AND I haven't watched/read Anne of Green Gables since childhood. It may be time to track down this nostalgia.
