{ blossom }

Some more typography for today, I worked on this, this morning instead of homework...hehe :)
one of my favorite quotes:
"Then the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." -Anais Nin

I'm off to actually do some homework now, have a great day! :)

{ vote? }

Little something I worked up for fun, and to remind everyone to vote, less than one week left! 
One of my loves of graphic design is typography so I'm hoping to do many more designs with type :)

have a great rest of the week! :)

one of my classmates posted this video and I think the mural the two in the video paint is SOO gorgeous so I have to share! :)
I wouldn't mind having that in my house

{ love }

just a little photo series a did a few weeks back, reminds me of summer :) 
time to say hello to fall though

(this is a bokeh-panorama I did with my 50mm at f1.6, it's about 12 images stitched)

I got a HUGE bag of vintage buttons for $1! yes I said one dollar :)

I love yellow :)

I have a set of screw on "macro filters" I used for some of these, they create a real shallow DOF

{ a little design }

I haven't really uploading a lot of designs on here so I am trying to! ;) 
This is a newsletter / thank you letter I designed for Portland Central Young Life, and I forgot to upload it.
My goal was to use really well done typography and interesting picture placement to create the look of a poster instead of a newsletter. I am currently working on invites & save the dates for them for another fundraising event and hope to have that uploaded soon :)

{ portfolio }

My new portfolio site is up! 
you can get to it by clicking the "portfolio" tab on this site, or by clicking here

and because I think a blog post is rather boring without a photo, here is a nice pretty one for the day :)
I edited this one with Adobe Lightroom, which I must say, is pretty sweet (I used it at school, sad to say I don't own it)

{ photo inspiration }

These whimsical photos and photo manipulations are adorable! I love how realistic and casual they look, like a simple snapshot. The one below, of the dishes, is a personal favorite :)

you can look at the rest of his work on Franck Allais's website

Back To The Future!

Okay first of all, I love the back to the future series, totally one of my favorites. I also love art & design (obviously) and almost anything retro and vintage. So you can imagine my excitement when I was reading a blog post from Fudge Graphics this morning and discovered a vintage poster design featuring the DeLorean from Back to The Future! Hellooo Beautiful! :)

it's designed by Justin Van Genderen of 2046 Design who happens to be amazing! I basically love all of his work.
