Evernotes Every Friday
This installment of Evernotes Every is being posted on Thursday as tomorrow, March 18, is Bloggers Day of Silence to raise awareness for Japan.
1. Wallnut Branding for Luisa Nicholls
My jaw dropped as I perused the branding section of Wallnut’s website. I had seen one of their pieces before for Marypat but I hadn’t seen any more of their work until this week. The layers of design work together so cohesively and truly give a voice to the couture designer, Luisa Nicholls. Truly one of my favorite designs I’ve seen in a long time.
2. BF Royal Canvas Garden Bucket
This canvas bag combines my love for tactile elements and typography, plus my waning love of gardening. You can use these bags for all sorts of stuff, there’s even an equestrian bag! I just like looking at it. The layout is clean and simple with the use of only black ink with a pop of red. This and others are sold on etsy.
3. Burlap Chalk Cloth Tag
I read somewhere that as technology increases, the urge for vintage and textural element increases. This may explain my latest obsession with burlap. Anyway, I love these tags that can be used for all sorts of nifty things from place settings to gift giving. But have you ever seen chalk cloth?! I had never and I really want some. Buy these tags and much more on etsy.
4. Cardon Copy | Watch Found
Everyone has seen the classic Missing Cat signs or Need Work signs… they are usually lost among all the other signs and never get much attention. But Cardon Copy wants to change that:
CARDON COPY, TAKES THE VERNACULAR OF SELF-DISTRIBUTED FLIERS AND TEAR-OFFS WE HAVE ALL SEEN IN OUR NEIGHBORHOODS. IT INVOLVES HIJACKING THESE UNCONSIDERED FLIERS AND REDESIGNING THEM, OVER POWERING THEIR MESSAGE WITH A NEW VISUAL LANGUAGE. I THEN REPLACE THE ORIGINAL WITH THE REDESIGN IN ITS AUTHENTIC ENVIRONMENT.
Each redesign is unique and no two look anything alike. It’s a really different way to make the world a more beautiful place (I think I am taking that phrase out of its original meaning though!). Found Cardon Copy via 50 and 50.
5. Bryant Ross’ Harvard Travels
Andy and I love the vintage travel posters and have several hanging in our living room and bathroom. These books were completed for Harvard’s Alumni Association travel program. I love the vintage illustrations in contrast to the modern typography layout. View more of the book on Ross’ site.
