I just discovered this wonderful font yesterday, and I’m in love! Yes yes, it’s quite girly and frilly but I just love the contrast and the swashes. I want!

As you might have gathered by now I am not one to step down from a project when faced with a cumbersome craft challenge and I have definitely found my kindred spirit in UK artist Peter Root. I just have to share this project with you guys! Did you ever wonder what you could make out of staples? Nope, me neither, but Mr. Root did and the answer was; a city of skyscrapers! How cool is that!?

10 tips on being a graphic designer

I was asked to create a list of 10 tips on being a graphic designer, listmaking is very hip huh? ;-) So I thought I’d share my list with you guys. Totally subjective of course, make your own!

1. Always take the road less travelled, sometimes take the road with the most obstacles and learn from overcoming them.

2. Never think what a solution SHOULD be, but what it COULD be.

3. Never let technology/craft be a hindrance of going with a good idea, figure it out!

4. See things from another angle; see it from far away, up really close, from underneath or on top, pull it apart and put it back together in a different way.

5. Do good with what you have available. There is beauty in everything, you might just have to look a little harder to find it!

6. Perfection is sometimes the imperfect.

7. If something is good enough, is it really good?

8. Breathe! Timeout!

9. See mistakes as detours rather than mistakes.

10. Helvetica is hardly ever the answer, merely a placeholder.

I’ve only just discovered Swedish advertising and design studio Morris Pinewood but it’s about time since they’ve just won a Red Dot. I fell head over heels in love with their work for SaveMyDay.com, just love the colour coordinated shots.
