When I looked at custom matchbox sites, all of the sites I liked had 5,000 minimums, and each matchbox would be about a dollar. Since I wasn’t sure if I’d like them, or enjoy having that many, I decided to make them myself.
One of my closest friends and I are working on a blog to celebrate both our love of Fridays and pie. It’s called TGI Piedays—she plans out and develops the recipes, I take the photos and add the lettering. This way, we both get to practice our favorite things (and I get to eat too much pie).
I’m such a fan of Creative Mornings — who doesn’t love a morning breakfast lecture series, with free coffee and snacks? This month, the theme was collaboration, and the speakers were none other than the folks from #WeLoveATL. I proposed doing a collaborative project awhile back, and we figured that this was a better time as any!
Ahh, my first map in what feels like ages is finally finished—this one is for our brand new Travel section at Paste, and I’m so thrilled I’ll have a chance to start making maps on maps on maps. I also did the lettering for this one by hand, with some new Illustrator tricks I picked up recently—really had a blast here!
Last month or so we finally published our “Evolution of a Hipster” photo project. It’s a follow up to this one from 2009. I used Jess from Lady Flashback and Ryan Vogel as models, with Maddy Booth from SCAD as our photographer. Brittany and I produced and managed the shoot, wrote the copy, and I created the final graphic.
