type poster


Check out this awesome poster from Typography Deconstructed. It's not only gorgeous, it's informative.




You should get one and learn all about typography. Or even better, buy one for a graphic designer that you know.

announcements

I have a new favorite company to order great cards and announcements from. Tiny Prints. Whenever I have received an awesomely designed birth announcement or christmas card in the past few years I have noticed that they all came from Tiny Prints! So this year I ordered our Christmas card through them and below is a mock-up of our newly ordered baby announcement!



They have amazing designs and allow for a lot of customization. The typography and color options are always top-notch. Until I have the time to devote to designing my own announcements and cards (maybe when my kids are in college) I am happy to use Tiny Prints instead.

bokeh photography

Great photography inspiration can be found at instantshift. Here are examples of bokeh photography which refers to photos which include out of focus light to increase the dramatic effect.

Here are a few of my favorites.

by red.dahlia - I love the colors in this one. Truly stunning.

by mehran.mo - I love the stillness of the bee and the slow blur toward the foreground and background.

by inertia09 - I love the abstractness of this one. And yet once I figured out what I was looking at it seemed so recognizable.

by harold.lloyd - I adore the color and the smoothness of the blur in this one.


by C.S. Drake - Gorgeous!!

Aren't they incredible? Check out the individual artists to see more of their work.

google art


By now you may have heard about Google's Art Project. Probably because of my background in art history, I am blown away by it. You can tour museums (like MoMa featured below) and zoom in (way in) on major works.





It's fascinating. A tool I could play with for hours!
