Been a while since I've posted here. Or since I've paid any attention to my website (again).
So just wanted to share a few things that have been in the works.
First off, the lovely Brittany Myers is releasing her debut full length album (which is SO good) and approached me to do some album art for her. I can't emphasize how much fun it's been to work on her album. She gave me the tracks for the album and just let me run with whatever inspired me. Below are just a few screenshots of the album cover + back designs. More to come when I have the time to update!
If you want, you can check out her music here.
Or just follow her on facebook because she's awesome.
Recently I've done some work with Olive Natural Beauty as well. They are an awesome passionate, energetic team who've been so great to work with (not to mention I'm obsessed with their refreshing rosemary lip balm). Below are a few screen shots of the lettering I did for their logo - more on that process to come, as well as packaging - once I've got a bit more time to update.
You check out their products here. I'd highly recommend giving their facebook a like, they've been doing some cool giveaways lately :)
I've also kind of fallen off the wagon in regards to that nice long, organized list of books I was going to finish each week. And of course, have bought at least 10 more books since that post. But I've actually been steadily reading 99U's book Manage Your Day-To-Day.
My favorite thing about this book, apart from...everything, is how digestible and relateable each chapter is. Even nights when I'm exhausted, I can still read one 3 page section and feel inspired and accomplished. It's exactly my kind of book - it's diverse, it's short, and it's beautifully designed. I love the spreads of full black with a short, white quote. Those are my favorite pages.
In particular, the section that's struck me the most is 'Taming Your Technology'. One quote, and then I'm off to finish the book;
"...the heroes of the next generation will be those who can calm the buzzing and jigging of outside distraction long enough to listen to the sound of their own hearts, those who will follow their own path until they learn to walk erect- not hunched over like a Neanderthal, palm-gazing. Into traffic.
You have a choice in where to direct your attention. Choose wisely. The world will wait. And if it's important, they'll call back."
