a seal goes on the back. where you seal the envelope. a stamp goes on the front. the opposite side. this disconnect bothers me, but i am usually not so literal! WHY DOES IT BOTHER ME SO?!
DECOMPOSITION BOOKS. i was checking these out at sam flax this past sunday. i like how tactile they are. also that each feels a little imperfect and unique. clearly my faves are the nature scenes, but i really love them all. some even have gridded pages. now if only we could get them in dot-grids — i’d buy in bulk.
p.s. there are mini ones as well.
letter tiles for the home. i know THIS designer wants these.
dot grid sketchbooks. especially ones w/neon flyleaf pages.
designers also like free, downloadable print-friendly-PDF brainstorming templates. like these:
LINK 01 (SMASHINGMAG): wireframing and sketch paper, web sketch template (1024x768), iphone wireframe, ipad idea sheet, iphone idea sheet, iphone app sketch, andrpoid wireframe
LINK 02 (PAPER BROWSER): quick sketch and browser sketch
LINK 03 printable graph paper with 8 different graph types: cartesian, engineering, polar, isometric, logarithmic, hexagonal, probabilty, smith chart. once the genre is selected, you can further specify it’s respective subcategories: paper size, measuring units, and graph paper.
We had a great time at the Hp Print Experience Center event hosted by AIGA Atlanta this February. The event included guided tours of the Hp digital press studios, Neenah paper samples, wine + snacks, and a drawing for prizes.
Sadly, we did not win any prizes, but we were selected to submit a poster design to be printed on Hp’s digital presses. We thought ourselves very cool :)
A few photos from the evening:
This year we each did a custom Valentine and Un-Valentine poster design. We love how they turned out and wanted to share them with you.

Alicia did a fun cynical take on Valentine cards with her set of “Un-Valentines.” This 11x17” print can be quickly and easily trimmed into six 5.5x5.67” cards. They are so clever and funny, don’t you just love them?

Laurel did a 12x18” Valentine poster featuring big and li’l designer pups’ silhouettes. “All You Need Is Love” is a great poster print for anyone special in your life. It would work equally well framed in a bold-colored nursery or hanging in your husband’s workspace.
