Vintage Vegas Signage

As a lover of all things typographical, I find these prints: "Neon Boneyard" by Pam Sattler, to be totally amazing. The fonts, the colors, the feeling of abandonment. I love it all.
For more of this collection go to Iconology

Amy Poehler is Parks and Recreation

I love Amy, and this fun print by Chad Griffith.

Tea Time

These lovely porcelain and ceramic pieces by JorineOosterhoff are reminiscent of the dishes in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, and what's not to love about that?  From left to right, top to bottom : Cafe Pompose, T(r)eacup & Tea time.

Christa Palazzolo

I am in love with these portraits by Christa Palazzolo.  Not only is she an incredible artist, but she has a knack for really capturing the essence of people in these (somewhat rough) photographic quality portraits. Check out her site to see the wider range of her work,  but I particularly like these head shots.

Elegant and Powerful

I'm doing some research...
Here is one example of the ways a logo can be used and applied on various forms.
I love this design by Mucca for Butterfield Market.

Simply stunning... Emma Watson

September is here and summer is fading

I'll be headed to two weddings on Saturday.... I only wish they would feel like this.

I don't know whether this is a real tea shop or just a school project, but I love the patterns. If I bought a cup of tea that looked like that, I would definitely be keeping my cup... By: Sarah Walsh

The Ultimate Pho Experience

Ever since starting ceramics classes last April, I have been obsessed with finding beautiful, (and more importantly) functional forms. This Pho dish set by Omid Sadri, fits both those categories.

I've noticed a recent craze/trend over this soup, but for those of you who don't know, Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup, traditionally beef broth based, and served with mint, lime, sprouts and name just a few topping choices.  Pho, having been a long time love of mine, I really appreciate and want these amazing stacking bowls.

Dirty Sexy Illustration

Love the muted color pallets with brightly toned accents, the combination of gritty and smooth, and the sweet seductiveness. Oh so sexy.
I wish i knew more about the artist, but all i could find was a first name. Chiara.

{My Portfolio} Branch: Sustainable Design for Living

This identity is a redesign for an existing company: Branch
The above images include: 1. Logo  2. Stationary and Business Card  3. In-Store Poster Series
Branch is a home goods store, with a focus on sustainable design. They believe that products should be made in the most environmentally responsible way possible.  As a result, they only sell products that meet those requirements. In essence, they do the hard thinking so you don't have to. 

For the campaign "Symbiosis", this in-store poster series was created to emphasize just how important sustainability and environmentally conscious design is to the company. With "Symbiosis", they are reminding the customer about the relationship between these two dissimilar things; the environment we live in and the products we create and use within it.
