August Design Recap
The biggest, happiest design of the month was the Big Happy Yellow Mug. Slightly larger than the normal Porchlight mugs, these are beefy and bright.
Record Store Day is a little wonky this year, as it's spread out over three days over the next couple months. To remind folks that Record Store Day didn't die like all other plans this year, I came up with this poster...
Over at Porchlight Design Co, I keep a photo journal of different trips and outings. There are collections for road trips from Seattle to Boise, Arizona, Kauai and more. The most recent is from a quick couple of days driving from Seattle to Western Montana to see Flathead Lake. Some of the photos are below, but see the rest of the Montana photo set right here.
The nice folks at fruitsuper asked me to put together a tour of modern architecture in the Seattle area. Kelsey and I came up with the list of spots we like and divided the writing between us while using photos I had taken over the years. See the whole tour over at fruitsuper.
Just in time for the end of summer...the Porchlight Summer Shirt! A comfy cotton white tee that is now almost sold out. There are still some sizes available in the store and at Porchlight Design Co.
Last but not least, my favorite photos from the month...
July Design Recap
Over the last couple months I've been working on a whole bunch of brand new enamel pins for Good + Well Supply Co. Each pin in this big ol' set is meant to represent a feature of a National Park and is accompanied by a backing card to give it a backdrop. They're all available right here.
Spending so much time designing show posters for venues and bands, I sometimes forget to create art prints. This new little 8" x 10" was inspired by the uptick in houseplants and my affection towards 1960s Mustangs. You can grab one over at Porchlight Design Co.
Porchlight's ELEVENTH anniversary snuck up on me this year. To celebrate I came up with this poster to use digitally and as a print.
I can't help but personify everyday objects. Sitting around doodling a coffee mug, I came up with a super happy coffee mug whose splashing beverage emulated hair. The result was this enamel pin, available at Porchlight and online at Porchlight Design Co.
Another enamel pin/backing card combo for the month was for Microsoft to use internally within the company. Without revealing the entire design, here is a sneak peek.
As always, some of my favorite photos I took last month (most photos were taken on film this month, but a few are digital).
