TypeOh! Tuesday #100

Happy ONE HUNDREDTH Tuesday! I can't believe it's been two years of type on every Tuesday. So, as the image this week shows, one hundred thank you's to you for sticking around. This has been a really fun project for me - started as a way of being committed to working on my type skills to now being an inspiration post as I've started my own company and am putting that previous design juice into real-er things :) After my personal site redesign a couple months ago, I started thinking about reinterpreting this blog, too. I'm obviously a different person than when I started, and a different designer now, too. I've been subconsciously working up the courage to let TypeOh Tuesdays go, and I figured what better way than on the the hundredth Tuesday? I'm pretty certain I will always be most passionate about typography in design, so of course this isn't goodbye forever. And this isn't goodbye to me blogging either! With my site redesign came a conversion to wordpress, which has been so seamless and easy and wonderful that I want to officially move away from blogspot, too. The new blog will be different than this blog. It'll be more of a scrapbook of new work, random thoughts, inspiration, music, and design. I really only want to post about things I would want in an actual scrapbook, so I have no idea what that will mean about the frequency of posts, I just know it's something I will keep up with. I hope you'll come with me. Blogging here has been such a wonderful experience; I think wordpress will make it that much better. Thanks again for all of the support! The new blog can be found here, and you can subscribe here.

TypeOh! Tuesday #99

Happy Love-Is-A-Four-Letter-Word Tuesday! I'm pretty excited to finally listen to the whole album through today (you can listen to a preview here). I'm pretty sure Jason Mraz will always be one of my favorite artists..so to celebrate the release of his newest album, I want to feature the design work for his album cover and its reinterpretations of it for his singles albums!

TypeOh! Tuesday #98

Happy Tuesday! Hope you all had a great Easter! I've been totally overwhelmed with work lately. I'm spending lots of my 'free' time doodling new ideas for Lettersketch projects, and then working on some new items for Graphic River since it's been a little while and I'm starting to feel guilty. I spent part of this weekend getting a new graphic river item created, which I was surprised to see there really aren't any templates on the river of it..graduation announcements. Here's a little sneak peek..I'll post the full invite once it goes up for sale!

TypeOh! Tuesday #97

Happy Tuesday! We're getting close to the hundredth Tuesday! It's crazy to think it has almost been a full two years. I've been brainstorming some new Lettersketch products for awhile, and now that everything's sketched out, I'm getting things figured out before the new items go to print :) I'm excited because there will be a good amount of hand lettering on the new items, so I've been practicing some different ideas before I carry everything over to the computer, so here's a little teaser this week.

In other Lettersketch news, since hitting FPO, the sketchbooks have been featured on some design blogs! Check out the features here :) Have a great week!

TypeOh! Tuesday #96

Happy Tuesday! Hope you all had a great weekend! It was amazing seeing my brother again; we hit up the Atlanta zoo, ate at some cool restaurants, watched a couple of movies, and took a walk with my pup along the Chattahoochee River. Really wish my family members lived closer, but I'll take what I can get :)
I've got a dribbble inspiration post this week.. I got invited as a player a few weeks back, so if you're on, follow me and I'll follow you back :) Click on any image to be brought to the player who shot it.

TypeOh! Tuesday #95

Is it already Tuesday? Time has been flying since starting my new job! I'm feeling a little guilty about not posting very often lately, but with all new things, there's definitely an adjustment period :) I'm really excited for this weekend because my brother and sister in law are driving down from Jersey and visiting me before my brother goes for some Air Force training in Alabama. I can't believe I just saw them last month and am already seeing them again :)

Anyway! I have a pretty awesome type story to share..Lettersketch was featured recently on the popular print design blog, FPO, and shortly afterwards, I received an email from James Edmondson who happens to be the very kick ass designer of some fonts that are all over the place lately..Duke, Lavanderia and Wisdom Script. He had recognized the Lettersketch pouch, where I used Wisdom Script to stamp 'sketchbook'. He wrote how much he loved the sketchbooks and was excited to see Wisdom Script used, and I responded by offering to send him some sketchbooks as a thank you for supplying us all with such great fonts through Lost Type. After he received the books, he sent me this pretty amazing thank you note to let me know they made it to him. Made my whole week, hands down.

TypeOh! Tuesday #94

Happy Tuesday! I realized I never posted the letterpress poster I recently created! There are a bunch of hand drawn elements in it, as well as some fun western-y typography. This was in collaboration with the Atlanta printer Henry + Co, who you can contact to purchase it, and it'll also be in a We Love Letterpress exhibit in Ohio where it'll be on display from April 20-May 19th. It was actually on display and sold at the BandWagon poster show in Savannah last weekend, too, and got a little love here, in a video recap of the show. View all the close ups and some production shots on my website here. Exciting stuff.
