As Thanksgiving approaches, cranberry season seems to peak and then immediately end. In my family, we don’t eat turkey or ham at Christmas, so there’s no need for cranberry sauce. I unashamedly love the stuff from a can, but I prefer when cranberries are repurposed and added to cakes, drinks, or even pizza. (cranberry cobbler)
I spent five days in Atlanta with a bunch of college kids. Before you start thinking something crazy, I’ll stop you. It was for the Public Relations Student Society of America National Conference, from Nov. 6-10, and it was a weekend full of learning, laughter and lots and lots of food. I also live-tweeted sessions
Happy Thursday, everyone! I apologize for not being to post on my regular schedule lately – things have been crazy with school and extracurriculars. I got back from the PRSSA National Conference in Atlanta late Tuesday night and have been catching up since. Although I’m not currently able to imbibe on garlicky foods as much
Religion starts fights. Design starts fights. Religion is inspirational. Design, too, can be inspirational. I see an obvious connection between Typographic Verses’ project, featuring beautifully designed biblical verses.

I’m all about minimalism this month. Add in a little pop of a not-too-harsh color and it’s a win in my eyes. I love mixing black and white with a pastel green or baby pink. These aren’t traditional fall colors but I think that they work well this time of year.
Butternut squash, I have a confession. I used to hate you. I’m not sure why – looking back, I think it was probably just because I thought eating squash was weird. What was wrong with me? Squash is the best. Now that I’ve gained an appreciation for butternut squash (and all squash), I have realized
Typography. Again. I love the thrill of the hunt for a cool new font, but I think it’s even better when someone is able to make a super intricate (or simple!) letter as a decorative statement. Here are some of my favorites: (alphablocks) (type ideas) (type fight) (by frogers) (five by neil stevens) — If
French toast is so easy, but it seems so fancy. Maybe it’s because it has “French” in the name? Is it even French? Who knows. I do know that these five French toast recipes are must-makes for the fall–they combine all of the best parts of fall. Apples, pumpkins and warm food all make fall
There’s something very clean and simple about the color blue. When paired with the right colors and the right fonts, blue can be energetic. Other times, it takes on a more subtle role. The use of blue in branding isn’t new, but here are some brand materials that use blue just the way I like.
