Home is where your heart is.

I found this German clothing company and really enjoy their site and designs. However, it very much reminds me of To Write Love on Her Arms, because the same typeface is used in their logos. And they both have the same vibe. (Their designs also remind me of Glamour Kills.)

 

I wonder what their story is because I can’t read German (or speak it for that matter).

Ugmonk.

I found Ugmonk a while ago through an online advertisement and loved everything about it, but then I forgot what it was called. I have finally been reunited with their website and would like to introduce them to you. Meet Ugmonk.

Come on. How could you not want a giant ampersand tee? AND I just read the story (you should too) they even give to charity. Too good.

Sprinkles.

Back in the day, my Reeve Union Board advisor advised me to check out Sprinkles Cupcakes because she thought I would enjoy their designs and branding. I did and still do. I decided to revisit them for a little inspiration. Everything is so clean and thoughtful. I love the colored dots that they use to label the cupcakes. Genius. Check out their website.

OK, this is cool.

But is it worth $200?

Apparently. It’s sold out.

Orbit Spotlight

Orbit gum has been doing a Spotlight series on different graphic designers for a little while now. It’s cool that companies are opening design work to their customers. This would be a fun idea for a self-defined project as well.

Cutting a rug

I was thinking about how to portray information on my map and I thought that this was an interesting way to do so. I think if I did it this way, it may be too much and get a little busy, but I might use it for some inspiration. We’ll see what comes out of it.
