Hi y'all! I’ve just returned from my incredible Austin adventures with Aaron! Words cannot express how much fun we had exploring all of the lovely shops, beautiful hiking destinations, and all of the insanely delicious food (duh). I took so many photos during my trip, and I’m excited to share those with you once I have time to go through them all. In the meantime, I’ve put together a little Instagram round up of some of our favorite moments.
ONE | easy tiger menu
TWO | misc. letterpress type from uncommon goods
THREE | obligatory cacti photo
FOUR | canoeing on lake lady bird
In addition to all of the fun activities, I felt so refreshed and inspired by all of the beautiful design hiding in every nook and cranny of Austin (Seriously, take a look at any of the links I provided for the images and you can immediately get a sense of what I’m talking about). This feeling very closely mirrored my experience in Denver last year (and so many of my trips prior to that too, actually). There were so many beautiful brands and printed materials that I had a hard time trying to not bring them all home with me in one way or another!
Traveling and exploring new-to-me territory has always proved to be my greatest source of inspiration rivaled only by invigorating design events with other fun creatives (like last week’s Design Like Mad event). I am so thankful for this fall because it has been provided such a wealth of inspiration already and it’s only October. Check back soon for a more detailed update about my trip with tons of photos!
