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)
I just read this article on Couture Fashion House On Aura Tout Vu. All i can say is WOW! i am in love, inspired, motivated!!! I love these ladies boldness in not only their designs but also their mindset. They are true artist of the craft. Lately I have been thinking about trying to make my own shoes, and I am totally going to! I am ready to run home right now and start justcallmemuse couture! 🙂 kinda has a nice ring to it!
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 found this really great post on a really great blog today! Just thought I would share it! Its all about Magazines and Design Philosophy
