One Does Like a Little Color

New header july 13a.png

In these wintery, bleh days, one needs a jolt of color, no? In times like these, I like to explore the blog, Love Print Studio, who always seems to have gorgeous collages to tempt my palette (see what I did there?).

Two Sides to the Story

“Is the world full of deep symmetries and ordered pairs? Or do we live in a lopsided universe? This striking video plays with our yearning for balance, and reveals how beautiful imperfect matches can be.”

Beautiful Boutique Branding

Ryan Feerer Design Logo

I’m totally hopped up on this lovely identity program by designer/illustrator Ryan Feerer. Created for Betty & June, a contemporary clothing boutique in downtown Abilene, TX, Feerer’s branding vision captures the perfect balance of modern and accessible.

Celebrating Celadon

Intriguing. Eclectic. Inspired.

That’s how Celedon describes their Charleston, South Carolina home furnishings shop. It also fittingly characterizes the recent redesign of their brand by J.Fletcher Design. Jay Fletcher, a graduate of the Columbus College of Art & Design, created a deeply compelling branding statement that’s both elegant and contemporary. His simple color palette and smart typography have me, for one, highly motivated to trek down south for a bit of a shop…
