combining fonts

Yes! I have been looking for a guide like this. A great resource based upon H&FJ’s Highly Scientific First Principle of Combining Fonts: keep one thing consistent, and let one thing vary.


shamrock 2010

Shamrock was great – I finished the 8K at 55:10, 11 minute miles, which I felt great about! Anyone who has run with me knows that’s on the fast side for me.

And the final design of the 2010 teeshirts turned out ab-fab as well.

how satellites work

This Is Real Art has made a series of charming informational films on the way that satellites work. I’ve been designing a lot of info graphics to describe various technologies lately, so this is particularly interesting to me. Explaining complex idea in simply is no small feat – good, clean design is a must!

design decisions

If there’s anything I’ve learned with my bathroom remodel, it’s that planning is everything. I’ve definitely experienced the domino effect with the project which has left my head spinning several times! Then there’s the axiety about how the finished product with look. Considering not only about the quality of the final work, but the design decisions that were made.

The thing I hemmed and hawed about the most was the grout color. Even while I was putting it up, I was doubting if “Deloreon Grey” was really the best choice.

So, when I saw this on Apartment Therapy this morning, I felt pretty good.
