More design posts on the way!

Happy Campers | We're In Tents

I’ve not had very many design-related posts lately. Work was running me dry so my energy was depleted by 7 p.m. every Monday through Friday. On weekends the house usually bogarts our time, which I’m alright with since I love it so much and all, but it just leaves so little time for actual creative design. Well, that is, until May 30. Today marks one month since my last day at College of Architecture. After nearly five years at OU I decided I wanted to … Read more…

40th Anniversary

The anniversary was earlier in the week, but my gratitude to organizations like Planned Parenthood fighting for my rights as an individual has been, and will continue to be, unwavering.

Photoshopping work peeps

Over my 21-month employment here at the university, I’ve done some amazing things when it comes to design. I’ve created crisp new logos, I’ve designed pieces with only a whisper of direction from my superiors, I’ve been recognized by others on campus for my contributions to our college communications…. but somehow the one thing that always gets the best reaction is my ability to use Photoshop… (Click the images to see them larger.) These are just for fun and thankfully everyone is … Read more…

I saw a popular movie this weekend *gasp*

Drive movie

As I’ve said before, I don’t go see movies and since we’re huge nerds our PlayStation usually is either occupied playing games or showing documentaries. However, this weekend we watched Drive. I know it’s been out for a while but given that I’m behind the theatrical curve and it was just added to Netflix this week, I’m doing pretty well. It’s pretty good and didn’t end up being the movie I was afraid it would be based on my husband’s level of enthusiasm (we … Read more…
