PROCESS: MORRISON PLEASE

Morrison Please moodboard One of my favorite parts of the design process - and one of the most important! - is the initial research stage. I'll have my clients pin images and graphics on pinterest that feel right and align with their brand and the project we're working on. This step gets us on the same page aesthetically so darn fast. Thank you, sweet pinterest.

Above are just a few of the pins from my recent branding + squarespace design project, Morrison Please. I loved her picks: lots of open spaces, beautiful shades of green, and gorgeous food photos that stole the show.

It's so cool to see a project go from moodboard to final branding, don't cha think?

HAPPY FOR OCTOBERS

feelin like fall It's sooo fall in Colorado right now. From the sights to the sounds to the smells. All fall.... y'all.

I came across this quote on pinterest yesterday that really stuck with me:

I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

At first, I thought oh that's kinda clever... then by the end of the day I was IN LOVE with it. Octobers are pretty special, huh? The colors, the crisp + cool weather, the sweaters, the scary movie-athons, the food (aka Halloween treats)! October is the BEST.

I put together a few of my favorite things I wanna try and buy this month. I know, that cocktail isn't very fall... but for some reason drinking wine is more appealing in colder weather. No? Just me? Well alright. Try it anyways, k? It's inspired by Downton Abbey if that helps :)

Happy October to ye.

IN LOVE: FEELIN' LIKE GOLD

golden It's hot. Like real hot. Summer is in full swing here in Denver... but don't get me wrong, I love all this warmth + sunshine. In fact, I'd love to surround myself with even more sunshine-y golden hues. Enter: this moodboard.

I'd totally be feeling like gold rocking those shoes. Wouldn't you?? If you happen to find yourself with those gems in size 5.5, my birthday is in February... just sayin'.
