Evernotes Every Friday
Back to the normally scheduled Evernotes Every Friday, as last week it was posted earlier to observe the Bloggers Day of Silence. I am rounding up a collection of art and design created for Japan. Have you seen any you like, or better yet, created anything yourself? Send them my way! On to the images of the week…
1. Chris Turnham’s Passepartout
I love the illustrative style of Chris Turnham… the colors are minimal but the textures give depth and character. He’s also done a lot of work for the movie Caroline which can be seen on his blog.
2. Custom Family Tree
I can’t wait to have a family tree with some kiddos on it, but while my little family is still nurturing its roots, I will remain patiently waiting. This print is just too adorable though as the parents names are in the inner ring and the kids names are sprouting leaves! So cute! Was for sale in Cozy Blue’s Etsy shop but is sold out. Found via Our Humbled Abowed.
3. Mattson Creative’s Crazy Hare Logo
I really hate designing logos. It’s my least favorite design challenge as it is just that—a challenge! Logos need to be timeless, appropriate for their target market, and easily applicable across many mediums. So basically, it’s just hard. I do love a challenge though… here’s a logo by Ty Mattson for Crazy Hare, a new racing/lifestyle brand. I love the clean lines creating motion and the abstract visual of a hare. You can see the unused concepts on his blog.
4. Painted Chalkboard Invite Suite
I love the stark white against the black in this invitation suite, with the subtle depth and shadow of the painted strokes. Plus your guests get a stick of chalk! Awesome! It’s like a pre-favor! For sale in Ello There’s shop.
5. Kyle Kargov’s Day & Night
And to end, the lovely letterpressed card from Kyle Kargov to is girlfriend. During the day, the card reads “I’ll love you all day” but at night while she’s alone at home it reads “I’ll love you all night.” Now how sweet is that?! And best of all, he’s selling these cards, so gents (I know there’s gotta be one guy who reads this blog), pick one up here.

I love those invitations! It’s such an adorable idea. I might even copy it. I’m a designer and I have to design my own invitations in the next month or so. Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂
