Counting the days

Cannot. Wait. For. This.

I've been in serious withdrawal from my Mad Men addiction for
over a year now. How about you?

And I'm all for the boldly minimal poster campaign.

Sean Freeman sure knows how to work some type. I can't stop staring
at his piece for The Decemberists, below.

Bob Gill, A to Z

I recently heard a great interview with Bob Gill on NPR. He's a graphic design legend, one of the founders of Pentagram and the creator of a plethora of extremely clever visual ideas. I'm particularly fond of this colorful, mod, simply illustrated flipbook (spotted here), published in 1962.

Spreading the OM

I'm excited to share a really fun project with you today: I recently had the opportunity to work with the wonderful folks over at Yoga Journal magazine, designing the t-shirt for their 2012 Conferences! The design, above, was inspired by some of the elements that are part of my Yoga Cards collection (shown at the bottom of this post), combined with a modern, graphic mandala shape.

The bright aqua and sunny orange colors really pop on the charcoal gray Alternative Apparel tees. The t-shirts will be sold before each conference event and will be available for purchase on site at each event (including San Diego, New York, and Colorado). At the last weekend's conference in San Francisco, the shirts completely sold out! As a long-time Yoga Journal reader, I'm so thrilled to have been able to contribute to this awesome event.

I love these charming folk-art-esque woodland illustrations by Helsinki-based illustrator Aino-Maija Metsola (who also does patterns and illustrations for Marimekko).

Starting the Year Off Right, If a Little Slowly

My brain is feeling a bit sluggish today and I'm finding it hard, on the first
official work day of the new year, to dive into the workload with the usual
gusto. But I'm pretty sure a hearty dose of exercise and a lot of vegetables
will help me get back on track....

I made this yummy broccoli soup yesterday to have for lunch this week.
Delicious, and super easy to make. You can find the recipe right here; photo
