this graphic used by Barneys New York is so good! i think some of the best graphics are simple, maybe only 2 colors. for me, when there are only 2 colors, it makes me more aware of the details – the spacing, line weight, font, and alignment (among other things) in a way i would not appreciate otherwise. but i mean… really… that heart with the eyes is just amazing..

i discovered this great print by Geoff McFetridge on the Partners & Spade blog. i love how even though he only uses 4 colors, you can still get so much from it. interesting, bold, humorous, iconic all come to mind.
Loving this first image, I wanted to know more about the artist so i made a few clicks and found myself on his professional site Champion Studio and found this amazing poster for one of my favorite bands: phoenix. again… limited color palette, but really catches your attention and lets your mind play for a second of two.. imagining the notes from a piano fill the air..
He is also the one behind the where the wild things are graphics. i will admit to not seeing the movie yet ( i know, i should watch this.. but i’m afraid i’ll start sobbing all of the place.. i know i will ) i loved the graphics. I think they are genius.. playful and full of whimsy and help define the mood of the film. do i have to point out, again, the limited color palette and how talented he is at creating emotion… i think you get the point : )
so good. a perfect way to say so long summer. from the cool kids at the ace hotel blog-wog
this image has been living patiently on my desktop -highlighted in blue, the color i use when i want to feature it on the blog- for a while now. it reminds me of the hill-side scene in the sound of music.. soooo good. anyway.. the photo is from wedding photography team Our Labor of Love. they are doing amazing things.. turning traditional wedding photography on it’s dull old head.. it’s easy to get caught up browsing through their portfolio.. you just keep clicking and clicking and..
spotted first here at once wed
this reminds me of when i am driving to my parents house, the sun is setting, and all these amazing colors start appearing and blending – forming an amazing palette of colors I would never think of just sitting at my computer.
