Well hello everyone! I am back from vacation and ready with a new Evernotes Every! I started this series a full year ago and it’s been fun cataloging my design interests as they’ve changed to include crafting and home decor thanks to Pinterest. I hope you enjoyed Kathleen’s post last week while I was on vacation, if you haven’t read it yet, click here.
1. Pixar Color Theory Sketch
Disney Pixar posted this image last month. I have never noticed that they colored the toys according to their importance in the movie. I’ll definitely be paying attention to this next time we watch it!

3. Mississippi River Fund
Loving Candice Leick’s illustrative style with her slightly stylized shapes and her use of texture, but then her more abstract representation from the change in grass to asphalt to sea.
4. Indian Motorcycle
While this concept work for Indian Motorcycles wasn’t implemented, the design work has so much merit I am glad the design team still shared the project. With a stellar cast of designers (including Curtis Jinkins), the design is exquisite in detail and vast in the multiple applications. What I love most are the black and white logo variations and alternate marks and magazine spreads. Found via Allan Peters, view the rest of the project here.
I have been a fan of Imaginaria Creative for quite awhile now, so naturally I love one of their latest design for Zukali, a totally in house product. It can best be described by the designers themselves:
We wanted to stay away from the typical Mexican aesthetic to differentiate the brand, our approach was to communicate authenticity and sophistication with a modern flair while still capturing a handcrafted feel.
