Type Study : Dogs as Typefaces

Picture 1

I have loved this poster, found via Swiss-Miss for years now, so I thought it would be a fun little way to start the week for dog and typography lovers alike. I agree with some of the comments to her post, that the Bulldog would be perfect as a Cooper Black, perhaps a Doberman would be better suited to Fraktur? Find this Dogs as Typefaces poster here »

And just for kicks, here’s my Labrador, Jayda, as Rockwell. A happy, sturdy slab serif, who’s strong, perhaps a little chubby, & lovable! …

Y’all – this has been one crrrrrazy year. I’m so thankful for so much right now my heart’s on overload! Just a little note to wish you all the merriest of holidays, & to share this ridiculous Christmas card we created for our friends & family. Blaise is from Hawaii, so after weeks of a terrible Colorado cold spell in December, a sunny Hawaiian holiday was all we could dream of. With love, & an enormous cheers to this beautiful year, Mele Kalikimaka! Thanks for stopping by.

Design Wine Sunshine – The Mood Board

DEsign-Wine-Sunshine-Moodboard

Design, wine, and sunshine are three of my favorite things. High five to the universe for letting them rhyme! Sure – I wanted to add animals, palm trees, family, traveling, laughter, color, warmth … but I figured in the end, I could always loop my loves back around to each other. So here we are – my little moodboard of things that inspire me and guide the visual language for this blog. I’m thinking fun, happy, colorful, design driven, relaxed, surprising, and bright. Voila!
You can find my inspirations & their lovely links on this Pinterest board 
Cheers!
