Friday Footnotes

1. Grand Budapest Hotel Graphics

I really don’t know much about this movie but without even seeing the film, I’m already loving the graphic design! Since the entire world is fictional, a design team came in to design EVERYTHING. The film’s lead graphic designer, Annie Atkins, said:

This film was particularly fun, I think, from a graphics point of view, because we were creating this entirely fictional country that Wes had written – the State of Zubrowka. It meant that every little detail had to be made from scratch – flags, banknotes, postage stamps, everything.

Now that sounds like fun! See so much more here on Graphic Exchange.

2. Brittney Lee’s Wedding Invitations

After finally seeing Frozen, my love of Brittney Lee (previously posted about here), the movie’s visual development artist, has exploded! Not sure why I wasn’t before, but I am now following her blog and have found her wedding invitations. How unique are these? Seriously loving the color combination and the whole pop-up package!

3. Disney’s March Magic Teams

I love when my passions overlap… so I just knew I had to share this when I saw it in my blog reader. What if Disneyland ride’s were basketball teams ready to compete in March Madness? Well, whoever wins that one, the team’s logos are pretty neat! The Hecklers team is pretty funny to me too! See the rest of the team line up here.

4. DIY Chipboard Album

I’ve shared my love of scrapbooking on here before, so I definitely am loving this DIY chipboard from A Beautiful Mess. My favorite part is how it folds out, really opens up a lot of creative layout ideas. Is there anything those ladies haven’t thought of to create? See their DIY post here along with a video!

5. Propogating Succulents

Now that I’ve managed to keep more than a dozen plants alive in my backyard, I think I have quite the green thumb. But in truth, I just got lucky. There are quite a few little “hard to kill” succulents that are wasting away though and this article blew my mind on how to keep them alive. I’ve planted new succulents from old before, but seeing them just come from a leaf at a time is pretty neat. Plus, the photos are just gorgeous! Read the whole post here.
