a new fave

Tuesday, October 20, 2009


Just finished a round of logos for ecoFiber custom rugs. They have exquisite, totally natural rugs that are made in Tibet. From fiber to dye to finished product, there is nothing chemical involved.

They chose the lower right logo ... all of their yarn is hand spun, looking similar to the line under their name. The idea below was what I needed the Islamic designs for. Those patterns might end up in some S+C collateral.

Website coming soon ...

They had these burritos at the end of the Denver Half Marathon yesterday. They totally rock. T and I each had three (they were miniature). Go buy them. Now.

islamic patterns

One thing I love about being a designer is the research. The projects that end up the best have a history and understanding to them. I have a rush job that relies on my knowledge of middle eastern architecture and design. I have found two great books and this website. I love the world wide web.

miller farms

Receiving another tip form our awesome new neighbors, this past Sunday we took a family trip up to Miller Farms. Up near Greeley, the farm allows you to pick all of the vegetables that you possibly can while riding around behind a tractor. Needless to say, it is a little boy's dream. Along with the farm equipment, digging in the dirt and farm animals, there is all sorts of old junk to climb on. They even created the Cars characters out of beat up (you guessed it) cars. Nothing like seeing Mater in real life!

I went into overwhelm when we got home. We probably have over 20 lbs of potatoes, onions, squash and carrots! Looks like we'll be having lots of soup this winter.

lonny mag

Oh Facebook. What would this new world be like without you? Many friends are fans of the new Lonny Mag, so of course I had to check it out. It is fabulous. Think "digital Domino". Great content (and a TON of it), direct links to products with just a click of the mouse, beautiful spreads. My only complaint is not being able to get a feel for the whole layout on my little laptop. Viewing works much better on a big screen.
