Also long overdue, I wanted to share the shop design I collaborated on with Paul Wagner, the Design Director at Princeton Architectural Press.
PAPress opened a second office on Warren Street in Hudson, NY last year, and left space for a small brick and mortar shop called Paper + Goods. In November Paul and I designed and arranged the space, and created a holiday window display for the season. I was really proud of the result!
Go visit Paper + Goods if you're in Hudson at 204 Warren Street!
I just saw the Maholy-Nagy exhibit at the Guggenheim Museum on Wednesday, and of all of his broad range of work, I most enjoyed his geometric paintings. I love the way the forms appear like beams of light or sheets of glass. Here are a few examples that I found online:
I get such a satisfaction from Edward Gorey's paperback book covers for Doubleday. The colors, simplicity, lettering, and hand-drawn quality are perfect in every one. Pomegranate recently came out with a book full of his covers and I definitely need to add it to my library!
There are so many, but here are some favorites:
I finally watched the film Brooklyn recently, and I just fell in love with the production design (and the story!) It was such a nostalgic visual feast, and I loved the teals and reds and yellows used throughout.
Watch this movie! :)
As I rebuild my portfolio, I have to let go of even my most well-loved student work to make room for the new. But, I don't want to erase it all forever, so I'll stash some of it here!
In school I worked for three years at the Graphics Center, an on-campus, student-run design firm where we created promotional materials (of all sorts, but mainly posters) for organizations on campus. I actually owe my design career to this place; I started there barely knowing how to use illustrator and photoshop, and left as a Design/Art double major, and manager of the center. Thanks GC! Here are a few of my favorite posters I made during those three years:
I think the convergence of approaching summertime, recent trips up to New England, and my desire for peace and quiet in contrast to hectic city life is making Fairfield Porter's work even more lovely to me than usual:
How do you start a blog? I'm not sure! To break the ice, here are some dogs I've met recently:
