Sunday Roundup #1

Sunday Roundup

Here are some highlights over the past week:

First of all, RIP Prince. So sad. He’s one of those legends that I just thought would live forever. Rest in peace you beautiful unicorn.

Spring is in the air and everything is in bloom! Look how pretty things are around here in NYC.

I spotted this stenciled typography delight on a someone’s personal (mythical) garage nearby.

I really need this I Have Way More Makeup At Home bag by Pamela Barsky that I spotted online this week. Sums me perfectly haha, and it’s currently sold out.

As much as I’ve tried to avoid SnapChat, the little filters are addicting. And everything is in real-time, so there’s wayyyy less curated bullshit that has become Instagram. On a side note, I can’t believe how long my hair has gotten, wow.

And…I voted this week♥

Typography found in the East Village

There’s so much interesting typography to be found in New York City, but my favorite area to spot some really interesting street signs, storefronts and logos is the East Village. This neighborhood has a very artistic, urban, and old New York vibe, and the store owners are all using quirky typefaces for their signage.

Let the good times roll

I think I might turn this design into a greeting card, or a even party invitation perhaps…stay tuned. For the span of my design career I’ve always wanted to set up a little shop. I think the summer of 2016 is when that will all come to fruition. And as I’ve mentioned over the past year, I’m finally going to start making this blog a more fun, frequently updated site with a more personal touch and a little shop too ♥

anders font sup betchez

I found this cool geometric font Anders on Behance. It’s the creation of Tom Anders Watkins (hence the name). Me gusto mucho and need to use it in a project v soonish.

80’s typography inspo

While I do have an appreciation for minimalism, I think it’s time to bring some color and fun elements back to the design realm.

CNN bling

necklace CNN

This gigantic blinged-out CNN sculpture serves as a reminder that modern media is sometimes a spectacle in itself. With the upcoming presidential election a year away, the “entertainment” is already in full force.

dog face paint

A highlight of summertime : visiting the Barnstable County Fair and getting your face painted… modeled by Hunter who morphed into a dog yesterday.
