Yesterday on Instagram I shared a little stop motion video of my favorite personalized stationery designs. Remember, all personalized flat and folded cards are 25% off through March 7! Get more details here.
I discovered La Blogotheque's Take Away Shows and, boy, have they been getting me through a lot of work sessions this week! It's an awesome music video series based in France where musicians perform in unusual places around town. Here's a few favorites.
Fleet Foxes - Blue Ridge Mountains
South by Southwest, the huge tech/film/music conference that takes over Austin every March, has been going for a week now. While I didn't shell out the big bucks for a badge this year, I was happy to see that many of the keynote speeches have been posted online. I just finished watching one from Tina Roth Eisenberg, the creator behind the design blog swissmiss, "designy" temporary tattoo company Tattly, and the Creative Mornings series. In her talk, Tina outlines the rules that she lives by personally and professionally. I found her talk so encouraging for a creative business owner like myself - acknowledging the joy that comes in being about to do what you love and confronting the inherent risks, challenges, and opportunities that arise. Check it out!
I love Bob Dylan and am so in awe of and inspired by these creative interpretations of his songs I've come across.
The first is Jason Holroyd's music video for "Like a Rolling Stone" using an overhead projector and photographic and typographic transparencies.
The second is Leandro Senna's hand-lettering stop-motion masterpiece of "Subterranean Homesick Blues." I've watched this video numerous times. Her hand-lettering is amazing!
Finally, you have to check out "Typo Dylan" - a website experience set to "It Ain't Me Babe." Watch Dylan's face appear as the lyrics are typed out on screen. Check it out here.
