I’ve been really inspired by video lately. Like this trailer; I feel ice cold just watching that. But the video below has such a great meaning behind it that I thought I’d share with you.

Moss green

I never thought I’d go for furniture that has been stained moss green. Just look at how warm and rich it is here!

Happy packaging

I can’t get over the design in this packaging. I love that vibrant color palette. Cheers to this gourmet cookie company for doing something fun and funky instead of stuffy for their branding.

New designer crush: Erin Jang

Among the several careers I picked for myself as a child (forensic scientist, biblical archaeologist, author), I wanted to design magazine layouts. I have no idea why I picked magazines, but that’s what I wanted to do. Some days, I still think about it. (I stopped thinking about forensics after high school chemisty, though.)

Which is why I’m so in love with Erin Jang’s designs for Martha Stewart Living and Esquire. And she doesn’t just do graphic design–she styles photo shoots and videos, creates paper art, does art direction, the whole shebang. Erin Jang, I want your job!

Fun note about the spread above: The photos were taken with the Hipstamatic app on an iPhone!
