NEW HOME: DOOR MATS

hopefully you guys are starting to notice MORE content happening on the blog. we have the addition of trends with our magic 8 ball column, we just started fun fact friday to use for your weekend hangouts, we’re bringing back way more DIY posts, and we’ve got a lot more up our sleeves. bringing on natalie is really helping me bring more ideas to life and more content to you all. this also allows me more time to do personal posts and the roundups that i love doing.

i just moved into my new house about 3 weeks ago, so i am in that phase of…i need a new trash can, this rug doesn’t fit in that room anymore, it’s time for a new door mat, i need more storage solutions, what about a dish rack. all those little things that make a new house complete. since i’m constantly searching online for home decor items, i thought it would be fun to share with you every so often a roundup of items that are not only good looking, but functional too. those things everyone needs.

first up: door mats. mine were old and filthy and ready for a refresh when i moved in to my new spot. here’s a roundup of some that i found online…

CURIOUS DAY

hey everyone! happy friday. i don’t always share all the projects i’m working on behind the scenes but i figured i would this time. when i’m not blogging here, i do various jobs like art direction and brand consultation. when fossil approached me last month about being a part of their “curious day” project, i was intrigued by their bright visuals and open-minded attitude about my interpretation of curious day. to this date, they were one of my favorite clients to work with! so flexible and great.

i really believe that curiosity and creativity go hand in hand. we can’t just expect to sit in our houses and be struck with inspiration everyday…a lot of the times we have to go looking for it. the creative hunt! fossil wanted me to help bring that concept to life with buttons, posters, store signage and web graphics. i brought on maddy to the project (she does this hand drawn column on my blog!) and loved what the end result came out like.

this shows a bit of our process. the brand and i figured out the style that we wanted to execute and maddy created some hand drawn type. next we moved into color palette and scale. the wheel is going to be a giant in-store wheel! you can visit any fossil retail stores to spin the wheel of curiosities for a chance to win a limited edition surprise created by designlovefest. 

ps, free button pack with purchase online! pretty fun, huh?

“i have no special talents, i am only passionately curious.” – albert einstein

here are some photos from the #callingallcurious hashtag. i love watching people think outside the box about how they can create a visually stimulating photo. this is what pulled me into it. fossil is doing cool things, you guys. thanks for checking out some of my side projects!
