Another amazing video from Kimbra here.

new homeseed branding work!

I have some new things to share :)  the first is the identity work that was done for Certain Spectacle. The owner, Kelly specializes in space styling of two main kinds: event & interior.  She has an incredible eye!  Here is the branding/business card design that I created for Certain Spectacle:

certain spec 5
Kelly really wanted to be able to personalize the cards based on conversations
with potential clients & this is what we came up with :)

The second share is identity work that was done for Sandi's vintage, repurposed, and new design jewelry business, Encantadora.  We worked on some business cards and a banner for her esty shop (check it out!  She and Margarita make some really unique and beautiful pieces!).  Here are the cards and the info card I created for Encantadora that share with her customers the impact their purchase has had on Margarita:

vanessa bruno film love.

Thank you to Christine for this bit of lovely inspiration (Vanessa Bruno's A/W 11-12 film).

ps...I've always really liked Kate Bosworth's heterochromia eyes.


lady singers...

Music news for you today!  Annie Clark's (St. Vincent!) new album is available for a preview on first listen on NPR.  Still trying to figure out what I think about it...it took me a while to get into her first albums.

St. Vincent's Annie Clark returns with her best and most immediate work, Strange Mercy, out Sept. 13.
annie is a beauty for sure (photo by tina tyrell).

AND!  Kimbra (who I talked about here), has a freebie from her new/debut album (which is unfortunately not available in the US yet!) here: Old Flame.  I love lady singers.  I really really do. Enjoy!


inspired by: here design.

Really enjoying (and getting inspired by) the branding/packaging work of here design


dan made a bookshelf.

Dan's excitement to build a bookshelf seemed to explode out of nowhere a couple of weeks ago.  I wasn't sure where that excitement would take him, but...it took him somewhere wonderful!  See for yourself:
