No. But look at the "art" of these to dos and let me know if you have some as well you wanna add to mine! Enjoy!

Graphic Design

What is Graphic Design?? What IS graphic design?? How can you define a thing like that?? It's like asking the owner of a company to define all of the different aspects of his job...maybe that's not the best definition. .. but do you understand how defining something that you have complete and utter passion for is difficult? I KNOW, right?? Anyway, I found an artist named Colin Harman who has defined Graphic Design in his own words and you can check it out below! He also had another great poster that I couldn't help but post as well, take a look and enjoy!


I love the chunky glasses part, that is so awesome!


 Brilliant. And you can buy those posters here!

Friday Feature: Third Floor Design Studio



Hello! Have you heard of Third Floor Design Studio?? Well, it's your lucky day because I'll get to tell YOU all about it!! It's an interior design blog by my friend's wife, Kimberly Moore and she's brilliant! So check out her blog here and I'm going to let her tell you about herself:
"My name is Kimberly Moore and I proudly claim Seattle as my home! The indie, organic, down to earth, but sophisticated NW scene is a big part of who I am. I love where I am in life - there are so many exciting changes and opportunities around me! I recently got married {November 2010} to the most amazing guy (you know the hubs) and couldn't be happier! We both have a love for traveling and new cultures {which I try to bring into my designs when I can}. We live in your typical married college housing, a.k.a. small, but we've made a darling home of it. I call it our little apartment fit for two. 

"The blog: Third Floor Design Studio has been a long time in the making. Basically, late one night as I was feeling overwhelmed at the sight of stacks of design mags, fabrics, and paint chips, I realized I needed to put all of these resources in one place {preferably one that would take up less space!} I loooovvveee to throw together inspiration boards and draw up room plans and it finally hit me that all of this could be online. Is it obvious that interior design is my passion?! :) So I started the blog...and was. in. love. 

"In April I'll be walking in that cap and gown as a graduate from BYU with a degree in interior design! My passion for the trade has only grown as I've learned everything from the history of design to color theory to budgeting your projects. I've gained so much experience from working with amazing professors {who are well-versed in the field}. 

"I couldn't let all of this design knowledge + my little bit of creativity go to waste! My goal for this blog was to create a place for anyone with an interest in design to come look, shop, be inspired, and learn! My Inspiration Boards are a great way to see the elements of a room pulled together. My Tuesday Tips share D.I.Y. projects and simple tricks of the trade. Then, of course, there are lots of pretty pictures of rooms in-between! As my design business gets underway, Third Floor Design Studio is a great place for me to share this talent with others. 

"I find so much happiness in helping others feel inspired and empowered to design. Whether it is through my blog alone, a simple question, or the services that I can offer, I'm always willing to help" 


 

THANKS KIMBERLY! Check out her blog here and enjoy!
