Being a graphic designer, type is important. Not only is it important, its powerful. So, here is a little exercise I did with type and the letter B (my favorite letter in the alphabet). I tried to think of be words that describe me as a designer, they had to be B words, along with some other cool B words, then I played around with them in different layouts. Here is what I came up with, It was a really fun little exercise!
Here is just a few of the things I am working on and have worked on in the past! Enjoy!

I occasionally do work for Pajarito Mountain Ski Area and recently had the opportunity to create a poster map for their terrain park. This project was really fun, they wanted a Southpark-esc feel to the map, and wanted it to be something that the teens (the main demographic for the terrain park) would really get into! So here is what I came up with. I would like to thank Pajarito and Jeff Hylok for the opportunity. Crazy Mother Map (pdf)
Matthew and I on our wedding day. You can see the DIY ribbon curtain, one of the many (and easier) personal touches in our wedding
Well, I have decided to become a part of WordPress’ post a week. Its a commitment to blogging more often, and more consistently, which justcallmemuse could use! So, without further adieu my first post under this category. Whats the most important thing I did in 2010 and how will I top it in 2011? Easily, the most important thing I did was get married to my best friend! This may sound like a personal accomplishment as opposed to a professional one, but the wedding part of my marriage was an avenue where I was able to apply many of my professional skills. I also learned a lot about myself and my ability to handle stress and things unknown.
My wedding was completely DIY, from the invites to the venue, we did a LOT of it ourselves, and Matthew, my husband, was amazing and helped in more ways then I could have imagined. I was able to design a lot of things in my wedding which was a fun challenge, and at the same time it was the first time I was my own client, I learned a lot about myself through this process and I believe it greatly helped my design skills. So, how will I top one of my favorite days ever? That’s a good question!
I have thought about a lot of mini goals I want to accomplish and they all seem to be microcosms of one larger goal, Starting my own Design business, so perhaps, that is my one upper… I have been wanting to for a while, and justcallmemuse has been my playful idea of my own business as well as provided a venue for my work and thoughts. So, with a real live website coming soon, and getting the word out there about what i can do, perhaps clients will follow. I am in conversations with people about my work, but 2011 will be the year of really getting to work, getting seen, getting my products in stores and perhaps, if i am lucky a little fun growth and revenue along the way 🙂
I am currently working on a new site for a make up and special affects company. I hope to have it up before the month is over. you can check out there current site at http://www.moxymakeup.com. and be sure to check back when their new site launches!
With the long weekend my husband and i had the chance to do some awesome skiing. Here is a photo i took of Matt in the Organic park at Monarch Mountain.
