Copycat

Recently I did a series of interactive activity sheets. Not long after I found this poorly done reproduction of it. My favorite part is the Word Search which doesn’t even fit in the grid. I don’t know whether to be flattered that someone copied me, or angry that my work was manhandled by some so-called ‘designer.’

Probably Not

Some surprising self promotion on the side of this french press’ packaging. Is it better to say ‘Probably’, or to say ‘nothing at all?’

Tune-up or pick-me-up? Why not both?

Driving up from SoCal I came across this gem. Couldn’t resist taking a picture.

Death by Apple

Today, while adjusting some features on my iphone, I noticed a very distinct characteristic of the settings icon. What I assumed were a set of gears, are in actuality, a set of saw blades. Does Apple not want us to adjust our phones’ settings? Not only is it rendered as a set of unfriendly and cold steel blades, but it’s also housed in a very dark & uninviting square reminding us that this button is not an app. It may not take us to a game where we grow moustaches, or an app that finds the most recently uploaded cat images, but it doesn’t need to look like I might lose a finger if I touch it.

A True Phallacy

Last week I was meeting my girlfriend for lunch, and we stopped by one of the only pizza places near where we both work. I always judge establishments based on their logo. Something that drives my friends crazy, but I just can’t turn that part of me off. Anyway, when we got to this hole-in-the-wall pizzeria, I think I must have peed myself a little. Kudos to whomever designed this jewel (family jewel for that matter).

I wonder if this was one of those ‘nephew’ jobs, where someone had a relative that ‘used photoshop’ and could do it cheap. I guess this is what happens when you try to save cut corners with a logo. Extra sausage anyone?

First Blog Post

I am desperately trying to build this site, having just taken my old site off the server. All of the essentials are in place, and  I’m about to start adding the real content, such as portfolio photos and more. I wanted to learn how to use WordPress, so here I am just jumping right in. I hope you enjoy what you see here. I hope that I continue to write new blog posts  and with much more savory content than this. I already have my next post planned. It just may take a minute to get to it.
