Back to Blogging

Hello friends! I'm back. Yes, it's been a while since I last posted on my blog. Work, travel and life have taken me away from posting regularly. But over the last month I've made some changes in my day to day schedule which have been good for my overall work enjoyment (and sanity). For example, I realized while I may not be the right designer for a potential client, some clients might not be ideal for me. I've also started to incorporate an administration day during the week to focus on all those admin things small business owners loathe to do, but gotta do (thank you Jessica Hische for the enlightening advice!) And I started thinking about why I blog, what I blog about and where I want my blog to go... or not go. So instead of my crazy inconsistent posts twice a week to barely once a month, you can expect posts each and every week on MONDAYS from now on. So stay tuned, tomorrow I've got some Nordic design with a little secret and gift ideas that won't break the bank. Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy!

Getting Brushy

Quite literally, I will be getting brushy! Since my lettering skills are in the very early stages, the Brushy Alphabet from the amazingly talented Molly Jacques is just what I need to give a few of my projects the hand lettered look I've been wanting. It's not available as a font, however you can purchase all the files needed to incorporate into your design. You can find all the details in her shop here. Thank you Molly!

It's a Beer, Beer World

These days, there's a plethora of new micro and craft beers to swill. How do you keep them all straight? Loren Purcell's SF Beer Map available on The Bold Italic, makes hunting down the best brew in San Francisco easy. The gorgeously designed 18" x 24" poster plots out the all the major breweries and small batch hubs in each neighborhood around San Francisco. Now if we could have a pocket size version for the pub crawl please. Cheers!
