I just discovered Jess Makes Amends via Facebook. We used to work with Jess in Chicago. She has taken a simple idea and made it fun to read. It is such a great use of type, too. I want to see more apologies!

This Chicago based photographer has some really cool projects: Same Hill, Different Day/ Stacked/ The Book Collection/ Puffin Clouds. His creativity has many sides.

paint with ben

This new branding by Benjamin Moore is brilliant. The interactive site has you pair words with color. It makes me want to paint all of the rooms in my house!

lisa congdon + a collection a day

I just discovered the two blogs of Lisa Congdon: The Adventures of Lisa & Wilfredo and A Collection a Day. Both are full of much needed inspiration.

These paintings are fun, graphic depictions of all sorts of different sandwiches.

the stars

It is no secret that I love science and the constellations. Perusing the new Pottery Barn Kids catalog I was struck by this amazing wall mural. Do you think it will go on sale?

before and after ... bluetowne

I love working with old friends. There is an assumed comfort level. And I get to catch up on all sorts of stuff. I have know Eric Hartley for 24 years. He has a computer consulting business called Bluetowne in Charleston, SC. They are going through a big rebranding and we were lucky enough to redesign their logo. I love before and afters ... and I think this is a good one!
