This is one of my favorite pages from the B&A Artists Journal – a promotional zine they distributed to art directors to promote their artists. I love the use of negative space – and how the artwork cleverly mirrors the photograph. I also can’t help but mention that the photograph, taken by Mark Lund, is equally playful, and full of the kind of natural light photographers dreams are made of.

Over the last 6 months or so, I’ve noticed the trend of very classic fonts getting a modern spin. From super thin hairlines – to over-sized slabs – or both of them together at once.. i can’t help but get excited…
Yesterday I was researching fonts for a client & came across one I’ve been meaning to figure out: F37 Bella
This font looks strikingly similar to the Didot & Bauer Bodoni Font Families – but definitely gives off a vibe that is distinctly its own. I love how the hairlines mix with the heavy lines – and those drops… they feel so modern, but feminine, and right now.
recently i’ve become obsessed with infusing fashion into my design work – particularly for my personal branding and porfolio page… so i’m loving these royal blues – bandanas, paisley print, leopards, knits, and pastel ombres. i’m excited to share what i’m working on -but for now – here are my sourcesss
i’ve seen this celine bag (although usually in black) on everyone lately – it is beautiful don’t you think? i guess it’s a little hard to tell from here if you’re not a freak like me and notice these little things – i’ll post more photos … then you’ll get it.
oh – yeah – i also love the color scheme this photo creates – oranges, greens, blacks and gray – it’s just the perfect mix – edgy pop….
first – love the cinematography – and the music – it just sets the tone.. you know something special is ahead.
second – what a beautiful event – put on by you + me styling i love the color scheme – how all the furniture is is white – allowing all the beautiful food, drinks, art, and props shine. speaking of art – those water colors done by Erin Fagerland – so amazingly perfect – i don’t know if i would want my guests to take them home – i think i’d want to live happily ever after with them forever – but seriously, what a perfect gift. also – i love that another gift they gave their guests were black and white pencils – the perfect touch. Anyway
don’t take it from me – just see for yourself!!

i love the simplicity of this – perfectly translates an easy – breezy mood
via craig and karl i love their work!
isn’t it funny how type can be associated with a place. like these below – cleverly matched with parisian photos – the fonts are all inspired by life in paris – some are more literal, while others are more about the romantic aura paris exudes.
i love this logo. the worn effect on the type – and then the clever word play with the number and how the 8 & 9 over hang just a tad. i want to work towards creating pieces this good – in that vein – i just found this uh-mazing new tutorial/interview/tips site called method & craft – so many great little tips – i learn something new there everyday – i just watched i video on how to get a similar weathered efferct in illustrator.
what.a.babe. that top is just perfect.
plus – i’m super inspired by her color palette.
so after i wrote that last post – i went back to michelle’s website and found so many more inspiring pieces that i can’t help but share. i also really wanted to post a shot of the flower rug in full. wow-isn’t it amazing!? i love seeing it close up (like in the other pictures i posted) – the details are something else – but then seeing how she infuses this 3D element she plays with – it just takes it to another level.

so i wanted to get a bit more personal on this blog – not anything too crazy but – you know. so we’ll start with this – one of the major projects i’ve been working on is a website called le registrie. it’s an idea i’ve had for a few years now – but last july i started to get a bit more serious about it. (le registrie is a gift registry site that connects brides with amazing e-boutiques, designers, and heritage brands) so i’ve had my eye on this one boutique gretel for a while now. i love what they sell – and i love how their website so beautifully compliments their products. anywayz recently they’ve gotten alot more into taking these super pretty, editorial-esq vignettes of their wares – and i noticed this amazing rug they were using as a backdrop (you’ll see it below). we turns out – the rug is designed by michelle weinberg – a miami based artist. so of course, i dug around abit on the net and found all these other amazing pieces she has done. painting, textiles, public art – all so good! i love how she combines color – how she uses pattern, and the 3-d like quality many of her painting have. i’ve posted a few of my favorite things below – but make sure to check out her work – it is sure to leave you inspired.

john and i visited the getty a while ago – and while i love me some art – i was mesmerized by the gardens. there is something about a flower in full bloom – a bloom so full it look like the petals may blow away in the wind – something i have yet to achieve in store bought stems. i especially love how these effortlessly perfect flowers look against the backdrop of the ultra modern getty – take me back to there.
this is what i call the magic hour – magical things happen when the light is so pretty like this.
