A website of my very own

Now that I’ve been doing this whole freelance graphic design thing for a couple of years, I finally got around to putting up my own website. I know, what took me so long?

I find it very difficult to design for myself. There are just so many styles and so many options, what’s a girl to do. Designing a new logo for myself over a year ago helped get the ball rolling…slowly rolling. My workload has slowed down over the past couple of weeks allowing me to finally knock this baby out and get it online. So here it is, a website of my very own:

The hubs has done it again

This isn’t the first time I’ve bragged about my uber-talented husband (read here), and I can guarantee you it won’t be the last. This time he has designed some oh-so-sweet posters for a local music venue. And not just any music venue. It just so happens to be family owned.

My sister hosts house concerts in her backyard, using her very own Domino Hall as the backdrop. It’s a very intimate setting for watching local and national musicians perform. Alex (the hubs) decided this venue would serve as a great inspiration for some poster designs and a great way for his sister-in-law to promote her venue. And he was right. These posters won a gold medal at the 2011 DSVC show.

You will be able to purchase these on Etsy soon. But in the meantime, feel free to let me know if you are interested in owning one or more, and I will make it happen. Oh, and visit his website to see even more great work.

Thinking outside the (mail)box

Recently, I noticed that our slightly wobbly mailbox has become even more wobbly. In our neighborhood everyone has curbside mailboxes, and our wooden post has been looking pretty ragged. Knowing we might need to replace it somewhat soon, I’ve been on the lookout for various types of mailboxes to see what’s out there and what we might like since I’ve never had to purchase one before.

The other day, as I was pulling out of the driveway, I realized that our wooden post had given way, and our mailbox was lying in the street. Apparently, replacing the old one needs to happen much sooner than originally expected. Luckily, my ever so handy hubby was able to work some magic and put our post back together…for now.

There are some really nice mailbox designs out there if you are willing to fork over some major cash. We won’t be doing that, but I can still look, can’t I? Here our some of my favorites:
 

Here’s a teak mailbox from Semigood Design. You can get this baby for a measly $1,800.

 

Here’s another teak option that is almost just as pricey ($1,664) from Unica Home.

 

I love this modern design by Hector Perez that I found at Apartment Therapy. This one is much more affordable at $199.

 

I stumbled upon this simple yet sleek design at Real Simple. It’s even more affordable at $167.50.

 

Last, but not least, is the Bobi Classic I found here for $259.

Bragging rights

Today I feel it necessary to boast about my husband. He’s a very talented graphic designer. I’m not just saying that because I’m his wife and I have to. I mean it. Here’s the proof.

His logo design for the UNT In-Line Hockey Club was just chosen as one of the top 10 winners of the 2011 HOW Logo Design Awards.

A little more bragging is about to happen…
This same logo also won Bronze at the 2010 Dallas Society of Visual Communications Show and was chosen as an example of outstanding design in the 365: AIGA Annual Design Competitions 31.
