Let’s Get Together!

Love this series of Get Together cards from Kathryn Whyte’s Etsy Shop. These would get used right up in my household!



New Save The Dates In The Shop!

Monday, April 11th, 2011

I’ve been working on a new addition to the Etsy shop recently and I’m thrilled to be able to share with all of you! I wanted to create a unique Save The Date card based off of a matchbook. The covers are letterpressed in gold metallic ink onto light blue, pink or green stock. Inside, are custom magnets that are perforated at the bottom so they can be torn off and saved on a refrigerator.

I am so excited with how these turned out and have definitely been inspired by lace and spring colors! You can check out the new Save The Dates here – hope you like them!



Michi Shop

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts the past two days but WordPress went bonkers and my husband/IT guy was out of town. Anyway everything is fixed and I return you to your regularly scheduled programing:

Thanks to Oh Joy, I came across Michi and am utterly smitten! Kat Macleod is the genius behind this charming shop stocked with colorful little gems. I didn’t know I needed a set of colorful carpenter pencils but now I do! And a cute tote that reads “thanks very michi” – you bet! Even her watercolor postcards have me sprung!



Well Branded: Girl Scouts

In honor of the delicious Girl Scout Cookies that are undoubtedly making their way into our homes as we speak, I thought I’d share the most recent re-branding from Original Champions of Design (OCD). Since being founded in 1912, the Girl Scouts logo has maintained an iconic three leafed Trefoil but it wasn’t until the late 70’s that Saul Bass redrew it to include the positive-negative faces we’re all so familiar with.

The modernized version of the logo, by OCD, carefully simplifies and modernizes the girl silhouettes. The hair and faces were updated without loosing the charm of the original mark. Even the color green got a face lift and the type was set in all lowercase for more approachability.

My favorite expression of the brand are the patterns and textures that were created using elements from the mark. It’s a brilliant way to bring the brand to life while adding a sense of depth and whimsy to the collateral. Now, if only the packaging could get some TLC, it’d be a fantastic! Check out OCD for more images and an in depth look at their process behind the GSUSA re-branding.



Well Branded: Envision Eyewear

Friday, February 18th, 2011

Ever since the Kate Spade party at Alt, I’ve developed an affinity towards chunky black eye wear. While I’m not personally chic enough to pull the look off, I am still drawn to the bold graphic aesthetic this trend embodies.

Hence my love for the Envision Eyewear Identity and stationary system. I spotted this lovely collection on designworklife last month and keep going back to it. Sussner Design in Minneapolis is responsible for this clever suite. I love, love, LOVE the mix of pattern and clever crops!
