What a week! On Wednesday night, I had the chance to share my Freelance 101 presentation with two classes at PNCA. Eventually, I want to make it much more grand but at this point, I am giving myself the chance to get used to public speaking and presenting for a solid half hour. Now that I’ve done it three times in the last month, I am getting more comfortable. Like most people, public speaking doesn’t rate high on my list (there’s a reason I became a designer — I get to hide behind a computer) but with the eventual goal of wanting to do a large-scale workshop, it’s time to squash those fears!
In between presentations, my friend Jason gave me an impromptu tour of Wieden+Kennedy and funny enough, it was “no elevator week” which meant hiking up five flights of stairs in heels. It was worth it, though — that interior is an architectural masterpiece.
The corner of our dining room. Space age seating, perfect for entertaining Darth Vader.
Our local hangout, The Slingshot has a photo booth once again so Joey and I took a few turns last night.
Conveniently enough, Joey’s art is hanging in The Slingshot this month and my favorite is still this painting of Barbarella. If we had the right color scheme in our house, I’d snap this up in a second.
I’ve been chatting with Non-Format lately and in one of those perfect moments, the day after I posted about The Sanahunt Times, an issue showed up on my doorstep. Editorial design at its finest. I love it so much.
When I was visiting Seattle last Saturday, I picked up some Pantone pencils at Paperhaus. Red, black and white. Need I say more?
Dusting off the good ol’ Proenzas, just in time for Spring. All dressed up with nowhere to go!
When I was a guest at PNCA on Wednesday, I spotted this poster in the hallway. Whoever designed it needs to mass produce ASAP. I love typography with a sense of humor. Update: The poster is by Joy Castiglione, class of 2013!
So many projects, so little time. See you Monday!
