Way Back Machine

Do you remember how Google looked when it was first launched? I thought it was the same as it is now. Well, using the Way Back Machine I discovered that while it was pretty similar, it had a definite 90's feel.

This site has a archive of screen shots from websites, preserving the history of the web. It's fun to play around and see how sites have changed.

Designer Barcodes

Now coming to a package near you, designer bar codes. Apparently as long as a certain amount of it is readable, the barcaode can be made into a work of art. Read more about it here and see the accompanying slideshow for more images.

In the Studio: Jaclyn's Bridal Shower

I hope to start a new series here, sharing some of the design work that I am doing, besides for the cards on my etsy shop.

Here is a bridal shower invitation for Jaclyn and David. It was going to be a Victorian-style elegant affair and we wanted to capture that feeling in the invitation. It a fun theme to work with and we were pleased with how it turned out!

Havaianas Welcome Mat

I found an ingenious welcome mat, designed by Anchalee Chambundabongse for Havaiana, a flip flop store (which seems pretty awesome in it's own rite - you can design your own flip flops!). It combines a friendly doormat with pop-out flip flops.

Don't you wish this was waiting outside your door?

I have changed the header of the blog to be simpler and easier to read. What do you think?
