Wikipedia told me that there are about 156 million blogs on the internet.
I follow a few quite religiously, more than I'd like to admit. A few blogs have influenced my style and design taste and checking those sites are part of daily routine for me. I admire those who can make (somewhat of) a living off blogging about what they love. I love a lot of things, but I am absolutely horrible at maintaining a blog. I know this, because I've tried before. I'm pretty sure I wrote a couple posts on my MySpace account once upon a hormonal/scary time (shoutout to 2004), and I have a couple Tumblr accounts that aren't as much written blogs as they are digital spaces to post pretty pictures that I think are cool. However, that's going to stop here. Keeping this blog is one of my resolutions for 2014.
It was in December, when I revamped my portfolio site that I decided it wouldn't be a bad idea to maintain a blog of my own, focusing on design. It's not so much to gain readership as it is a place for me to hash out what I've learned. A place for me to reflect, and in that, repeat back to myself my discoveries.
Hopefully, as I share my thoughts (I can hear my father cringe) and personal progress as a designer and as a person, I might possibly capture the attention of my friends and might say or do something remotely cool enough to inspire someone else to do something cool, too.
As I'm sure you are well aware, it's $(%*& cold right now. As well, if you know me, you know this makes me very pouty. I'm from Florida and I'm fantasizing about palm trees and never having to wear socks again in my life (a personal dream come true). Since I now live in Atlanta and those concepts don't exist here, I'm constantly dreaming about the closest thing I can get to home: spring. Here are a few logos, a recent sketch, and a gift for my old coach's brand new baby, all inspired by spring. Which will return. One day. I pray to see the light at the end of this polar vortex.
