New Blog!

Hey dudes and dudettes. It’s about time.

I’ve wanted to move to Wordpress for some time now, but I have zero experience with PHP so the process was a little daunting. There were some decent changes I had to make in the coding and structure… and somehow, I was able to get my PHP feet wet without drowning.

Anyhoo, if you happen to subscribe to my blog, make sure you update the link!



Love Life and Things

A close-up of some obnoxious optimism I printed a while ago.

Sewn Business Cards

It feels so great to finally get around to finalizing my new set of business cards. We had a half day of work today, so I focused on some personal work when I got home.

I really love incorporating sewing and other handmade elements in design, and I was really happy with the way my sewn resume came out a couple years ago. The extra tactile element makes it feel a little more special to me.

Shooting for the same message with my cards, I ran these through the sewing machine as well. Hopefully they'll make people take a second glance!

Teas' Tea

I saw an ad for Teas' Tea on a truck while walking to work this morning, and I really loved the packaging.

One exception: the font really bugs me.

The stripes are so pretty and modern! It would have been nice to use a font that felt the same.

I went sailing with some friends last weekend and took 302 pictures. There's so much to tell, it would be way too long to say it all here.

So I will direct you to a set on Flickr with 47 glorious photos, each with a description of that leg of the trip. Start with the first one and work your way to the end!! Warning. Lots of sunsets.

And here's a preview to tickle eyes!

Notepod! A Notepad For Sketching iPhone Apps!

Notepods: Notepads shaped like iPhones and iPads for sketching app ideas!
I love it!

Also in love with these notepads at Think Geek.
Love it?
Why don't you marry it?

Google goes Pacman!!

In case you haven't opened your browser yet today (my homepage is Google), here is some pretty action going on over at Google!

I love the button that says "insert coin"!
