Cool Waterfalls, Cold Water Falling: Iceland

Last week I went to Iceland with five awesome friends of mine—Maura, Michelle, Kate, Forrest, and Ryan. Right now, Iceland’s seeing a huge increase in tourism to strengthen their economy, and they’re doing a ton to cater to foreign visitors. For example, Icelandair offers a Stopover Buddy to show you around, since Iceland is a common layover destination between North America and Europe.

TGI Piedays

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).

Exquisite City at Creative Mornings

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!

Exploring the Ethnic Neighborhoods of NYC

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!

The Evolution of the Hipster: 2010—2015

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.

Building a Pallet Table by Hand

When we moved into our current house, it came with this rustic wooden table in the backyard—I loved it; we could fit many people around the table and used it in various cookouts. Over a couple months, it began to sag on its legs through rainstorms, icy cold and blistering hot weather, and about a month ago, was totally on the ground.

We left it there for awhile, as a testament. At one point I lifted it up and realized it had killed all of the grass underneath, so we quickly shoved it to the side of the yard. But, what now? What will we eat on outside during the summer?

Enter the pallet table—last Sunday morning I got a Craigslist email alert saying there were several pallets nearby us, and so we took Ryan’s truck and hustled over to grab them. There were four.

The Paste Parlour Dinner Series

Back at the beginning of May, I was in Chicago for the HOW Design Live conference. It was amazing — I’d never been to the conference before, and have always wanted to go. I got to see some of my favorite, most inspiring designers speak up close, and was totally in awe.

During the week, we put on a dinner party series at Ada Street where we invited several design influencers who were in town for HOW Design. We talked about print vs digital design, advice for young designers, and the importance of side projects. I led the conversation and did all of the hand lettering for the title cards and lower thirds.

How to Build a DIY Vertical Garden

Vertical gardens, really? This weekend I went on the Modern Architecture tour of homes here in Atlanta—after the 6th or 7th house, they were starting to look pretty identical; sharp angles, grayish colors, stone floors, and lots of glass. One feature caught my attention, however—so many of them had vertical gardens or living roofs. I was jealous. Why should these people have them and not me? Sure, they probably hired a landscaper to make the most perfect garden, but, I can have this too if I make it myself.
