Once again it’s taken me far too long to write this blog post, but a month after it’s over, let’s take a look at the Project for Awesome 2014! This year we raised over $1.2 million dollars, which is so incredible I can’t even wrap my mind around it. But before we got there, we had to put together the website, so this post is all about how I went about designing it. And made sure to click the images to see full-size screenshots of each page of the site.
You guys have been asking for it (literally it’s the most asked question I get all year long) and today it’s here – the Don’t Break the Chain Calendar 2015! However, this year I’m doing things a little differently. In the past I’ve always just given away a free PDF of the calendar here on my blog, and I’m still going to be doing that, but I’m also offering an 11×17 poster version which you can buy on DFTBA! Keep reading for the link to the free printable and to learn more about the poster above.
It’s that time of the year again – time for my annual Holiday Gift Guide for graphic designers and crafters! I’m so excited about everything I picked out this year, and I hope you guys like it too. Keep reading to watch the video and get links to everything I talked about!
It’s Halloween, which means it’s time to show off our costumes, and mine this year is Louise from Teen Witch! If you haven’t seen the movie Teen Witch, you are seriously missing out, since it’s one of the best worst movies ever made. Keep reading to see more photos and learn how I put it together!
Last week I packed my suitcase again and headed out to Palm Springs for Designer Vaca 2014. Described on the site as “a vacation for pretty pixel pushers,” it was a gathering of 100 female graphic designers for two days talking about design and relaxing by the pool. I met so many awesome ladies in the short two days I was there, and I also fell in love with the Ace Hotel at Palm Springs, which has a new Instagram opportunity around every corner. Keep reading to check out all of the photos I took over the weekend!
