Three Things Lately
Hey guys!! So Summer is really over- (even though it’s still in the 90′s) And I’ve decided to come back to blogging on a regular basis. My goal is to be blogging here once a week- no promises that it will always happen, but I’m going to try!
Life lately has been good busy. The kind of busy that inspires you, not burns you out. (Let’s hope it stays that way!!)
I thought I would share with you a couple things that have been happening lately.
1 // I got some awesome creatives to share with me in my new work space! Woo Hooo! I feel so blessed and really think that God has His good hand over this one. Can’t wait to be spending my days with real life human interaction.
2 // A project I had the honor of doing branding and packaging design for has finally launched! It’s called Cafe Pour Deux and being the coffee lover I am it’s really right up my alley. It’s a coffee brand created especially for pregnant and nursing mothers. Here’s the thing- a lot of times doctor’s tell pregnant and nursing patients to drink decaf coffee- but what they don’t understand is that decaf is created by using a ton of unhealthy chemicals that are really not good to be feeding your little one- it would really just be safer to drink regular! So Cafe Pour Deux is created as an alternative to the chemically induced decaf. It’s completely organic, made with no chemicals, and has amazing taste. Pretty cool, right? It’s really awesome even if you’re not a mom- it’s just plain good organic coffee. I truly believe in this product – and it’s been awesome to work on. Head over to their Facebook page and follow them on Twitter, or better yet, buy a bag of coffee! Cause they’re really great.
3 // I’m writing this post from my hotel room in Dallas, Texas. I’m at the Circles Conference this weekend! This is an inspiring conference for creatives in the design field. There are amazing speakers like Lotta Niemien, Carlos Whittaker, and my friend Megan Gilger. It’s always great to get out of LA, and experience new people and places. One of my favorite quotes today was from Carlos, who said that “the more moments we create, the more moments we receive”. His whole talk was about living a life that you design, instead of letting your life design you. Honestly it just inspired me to live life to the fullest. Getting out and making the decision to come to this conference was creating a moment for me, and in turn, I’m receiving so many amazing ones. After Dallas I’m headed to Alabama to see a dear friend of mine, and after that I’m headed to Palm Springs for DesignerVaca! It’s a busy 2 weeks of travel but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
