Pencil Post

PencilPost8PencilPost

“Pencil Agency, situated in the heart of London’s Soho, creates considered, bespoke content for clients across all channels but with a particular love of print. With this in mind it would only seem right that Pencil promoted itself and the importance of curated content to brands by way of a beautifully designed newspaper.”

Imagine if you sent a magazine like this to your clients. Whoa dang.

I don’t know if you have ever tried to organize an abundance of information on pages, but man, making newspaper and magazine layouts is so. incredibly. hard. I have a great respect for graphic designers that create work on this level. The information is presented in an organized, readable manner, and the design itself is innovative. Not to mention, I love me some navy blue and orange.

Design Friday: Typeti.me

designfridayBrian Miller’s new typographic time telling app is a thing of beauty and substance. The numbers “fill” with color to tell the time of day and all proceeds from the app go towards Michael J. Fox’s Foundation for Parkinson’s Research in honor of Miller’s father.

Gorgeous and minimal, my two favorite things.

Design Friday: Trig

If you are like me, the word “Trigonometry” might conjure horrible memories of high school math that send you running in terror. Luckily for us, Sydney’s Olivia King interpreted the word a bit differently.

Olivia combined an appreciation for triangles, bright colors, Australia’s finest natural materials and a passion for jewelry making into her new project, Trig.

Using the Trig app, customers can choose between multiple variations of color, shape and material. The finished pieces are then packaged in brightly colored boxes and sent on their merry way.

Now this is one Trig I can support! I love all those bright colors.

Blog Envy #1

BlogEnvy

It’s time for my first official Blog Envy post! I want this monthly segment to be a place where I share some of my favorite sites with y’all, and maybe you share some of yours with me in the comments? Yes? Sounds like a plan.

First up,

Retail/Shopping: A Kind Of Guise

AKOG1 AKOG2

I’ve blogged about this German company many times before, but I just want to make sure that no one misses out on all the awesome going down over the pond! They are extremely talented, witty, and keep it real (you have to respect that in a company). See their latest clothing lines, company news, random pictures of their glorious Dog de Bordeux in residence, and simply enjoy the eye candy that is the AKOG site.

Fashion Blogs: Sandra Hagelstam’s 5 Inch and Up

Sandrabyzanita1

Hailing from Finland, this London based blogger is hands down one of the coolest girls in the industry.  I am constantly inspired by her ability to mix classic silhouettes with the minimalist edge made famous by Scandinavians (seriously, is there something in the water over there?).

Expect to see her personal style flawlessly photographed, latest purchases and styling projects. If you’re ready to experience major hair envy, head on over.

Design Inspiration: RoAndCo

RoAndCo is a “multi-disceplenary design studio devoted to holistic branding that serves a range of fashion, art and lifestyle clients.” Basically, they fix problems and provide solutions in the coolest ways imaginable. Remember Svbscription? All RoAndCo.

Don’t be overwhelmed by the projects flashing in front of your eyes, jump in and explore!

I like the vibe of this company. You pay as much as you want (free is also an option) for some of the coolest fonts around.

Great company, fantastic fonts, what’s not to love? Go see for yourself!

So that’s it! The first Blog Envy is done! Now it’s your turn to tell me about some of your favorite sites in the comments! Don’t forget that you can always see my favorite sites for yourself on my Inspiration page.
