of a kind

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

Of a Kind introduces new designers through a unique combination of storytelling and small-batch exclusives. Each week, they select one designer to feature on the site along with an exclusive limited-edition piece by the designer. Some of my favorite items from the site below: parker scarf, fadeout necklace and blue hex scarf. I seriously want the parker scarf which geniusly can morph into a bag.

The Gaslight District Identity

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Because I’m in the midst of an Identity design myself, I’ve been coming across a ton of new work. This project done by Bethany Heck is one of my recent favorites.

Still…nothing compares to the work done for Cavalier Essentials. When I’m done weeping because I didn’t think of first, I’ll be ready to talk about it.
