This is a little different than portfolio sites because it’s a tumblr, but it’s a really nice site. She had created a place to show all the things that inspire her, gives snippets of her work, does a monthly re-cap on what happened in her life, and give advice to freelance designers. This is a lovely and well curated blog that is inspiring and resourceful.
Thumbnails for last night’s portfolio class. Picked one mark and got some general feedback on stationery design. Time for more revisions!
Makin’ these character sheets for my poster project… but I’m not sure what else to add onto them. Anyone have ideas?
Personal Logo Appreciation
Well this is cool, isn’t it? An i and L as a ligature? And it’s so elegant/pretty. It’s simple and friendly. I don’t know what else to say about it other than heck yes this is adorable, interesting, and elegant.

Right when you get to this site it’s big and open and white. Everything you need is in the top left and it’s simple. It’s ultra clean. As you click on the links to the left they accordion out into a list of projects. From there you can select one to look at. I love the sideshow of the pieces under Posters and Prints. It allows you to see the whole thing, select details, and alternate versions of the piece. There’s a short description of the work. The rest is left to you to think on. Again, ultra clean.
This works for Ansin because his work really speaks for itself. Leaving everything so stark is the right choice for him.
Thumbnails for my personal marks and the three selected to move forward.
Last night I went to the AIGA Kick Off party with Amber and Celeste. It was kinda weird at first to just walk into this hotel and be confronted with people I didn’t know and then people I did. All of us who were students just kinda gravitated towards one another because we were all in the same boat. But slowly some of us started branching out and finding people to talk to.
I got to meet two people in the UI/UX field and grabbed their contact info. Both Zack and Jon had interesting things to say about UI/UX that we didn’t get to cover in class. I think I talked to both of them for at least twenty or thirty minutes. Zack wants to help us set up and AIGA chapter at UNT along with the help of another guy I met, Josue.
It was a good night. I walked away with some valuable contacts and it’s going to help me figure out how to get into the UI/UX field. I’m pretty excited to start emailing and trying to set up this AIGA student chapter.
