One of my hobbies/passions, when i am not on the computer is sewing. You could say i have a passion for fashion, I am addicted to fashion magazines and all things vintage! One of my mother’s friends gave me a vintage black dress that her mother had made when she was my age (by my calculation its from the lat forties early fifties…) My husband and I are going to go see Wicked the musical for our anniversary, and i want to wear this dress. I had been looking at buing a vintage fascinator but after looking at A TON of them i thought… “Hey! I could totally make this!”
So here is what I came up with!
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!
