Hhis is the place where I talk about design, life, and whatever moves me. Don't expect weekly posts. Do expect some cute photos of my puppy, project highlights, and my thoughts on design.

California Coast

West Coast Road Trip

We recently got back from a 9 day road trip up the West Coast. It was, hands down, the best trip we’ve ever been on. We flew into San Francisco, rented a car, and made our way up to Vancouver over the course of the trip. This was pretty much a dream vacation for me!

Type Specimens Framed

Type Specimen Wall Art

Jul 10, 2012 • Featured, HouseNo comment

I’m always on the lookout for colorful, inspiring prints to frame on our walls. Usually when something I like comes along it’s pricey, and I can only buy prints like this a few times a year.

I didn’t really consider going beyond the half-marathon at that point, and, not long after running the half-marathon, my runs became far and few in between. Eventually I got to the point where I gave it up completely…until six months ago, that is!

Nico Turns One

A House is not a Home without a Dog

Dec 19, 2011 • NicoNo comment

It’s hard to believe that my little fur ball pup is now one year old. Pete and I got Nico last March, a few months after I began working from home. Pete had been wanting a dog for a couple of months, and I was beginning to see the benefits of having some company while I worked.

A Typographer’s Guide to Web Typography

Feb 5, 2009 • TypographyNo comment

Just when I was getting a little too comfortable with the thrilling world of printed type, I became interested in web design. Of course, achieving exquisite typography in web design is a whole new ball game—one in which I was all too eager to participate.
