Pinterest Find of the Week: Mary Kate McDevitt

Alright, guys. As has been the routine lately, this week's Pinterest Find of the Week is a tad behind schedule. Things have been pretty busy at my day job, and I'm simply exhausted by the time I get home. I know, I know- excuses, excuses. Anyway, let's get this thing rolling! This week, I chose to feature Mary Kate McDevitt, who is an illustrator currently located in Portland, Oregon. She also just so happens to be phenomenally talented at hand-lettering. I've come across some of her designs a few times now, and I can't remember when I had actually seen any of her work first. Here's the initial pin that I found this week, which is a logo for a vintage clothing and accessory boutique: I


I'll just get this out of the way, and say IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! HOORAY! Usually, in years past, I haven't gotten too excited about it because it generally ended up being a letdown. This year, however, I took the day off of work (great start with that!), and have made weekend plans with some close friends. In the past, every year on my birthday I waited for the flood of Facebook notifications and text messages to come in throughout the day. In the years after I graduated college, I've noticed that this "flood" is now more of a "trickle". As sad as it was at first ("Why don't people like me?!"), I just kind of got over it. Those people weren't really good friends anyway. And even the people

Pinterest Find of the Week: Zeus Jones

Alex Register, from my previous post, is a local artist to the Twin Cities area. He works with Zeus Jones, a creative agency located in Minneapolis (literally blocks from my apartment, actually!) that centers around modern branding. I did a little digging through their website, and I loved it. All of it. With my getting reacquainted to the world of design, it is really refreshing to see what kind of agencies are out there. And for this one to be so close is pretty amazing. THIS is what I wanted to be a part of when I moved to the Twin Cities. You don't find many companies like this in small-town-Wisconsin. They work with big name clients, like Google and Cheerios, and they also work wit

Pinterest Find of the Week: Alex Register

Alright, we're back at it. After a lengthy bout of laziness and some employment rejection (hooray... :/ ), we are back at it with the Pinterest Find of the Week. Since I didn't do one last week, this one just so happened to work out to split into two lovely posts. Here we go! So I did some perusing today, and came across this pin, by designer Alex Register: I liked the retro kind of vibe it was giving off, and the simple, clean design style. As usual, I clicked through to Alex's website, where I discovered even more great design. He has everything from wedding invites (his own!) to screenprints (love!), and even a giant 4x8 foot woodcut print. Yes, 4x8 FEET. Huge. Either way, I gotta love

Fourth of July

Today is July 4th. To most Americans, it's Independence Day or the 4th of July. To me, it's the best holiday ever. I've always loved this time of year, and even today it remains one of my favorites. I think it's a great time to be patriotic and proud of what this country has become, and really, I just absolutely love fireworks. The past few years I haven't been able to get the chance to see as many of them, but it's always something I enjoy watching. You just lay back in the grass and stare towards the sky, and there's this wonderful, larger-than-life fireworks show happening in the clouds above you. That's pure awesome, and I love it so much. If you don't get the chance to see a grea

Pinterest Find of the Week: Helen Dardik

Go figure. While I was nice and ambitious last week, this week I super-slacked off. I didn't have time to search through the treasure trove of pins this week, so I figured I'd look back on some of the things I already pinned. Give them a second chance and all. Generous. ...Right? ;) Anyway, here's this week's Pinterest Find of the (Last) Week. Looking through my earlier pins, my eyes stopped on this one of a pattern by Helen Dardik, that I had discovered a few weeks ago: I was once again impressed by the pattern and colors used in this design, as well as the whimsical quality of the illustrations. I clicked through to Helen's blog, Orange You Lucky! (which you can find here!), and was
