Wow - what a weekend! As I previously mentioned, this past Saturday was Design Like Mad. I spent 12 hours working with an amazing team to develop a logo, color palette, letterhead, print collateral, and a website for a local non-profit (photos of the actual work coming in the future! - **UPDATE** You can now check out the final designs here!). It was simultaneously insane and amazing in all the right ways! It was so intense and invigorating that we hardly had time to eat let alone take pictures of the awesome event as it unfolded.
I don’t know if it was the pressure to produce or the insane amount of coffee I consumed, but there were definitely a few moments where I felt like my heart my explode with excitement! I met so many fantastic and talented designers this weekend, and I couldn’t be happier with the experience.
I spent Sunday morning reflecting on the fun from the day before and working on some client projects. Despite my best judgement, I decided that I should take a break from designing and head out into the snowy world to check out Hovercraft Milwaukee. It was such an amazing event with so many talented artists, crafters, and more! As an extrovert, I frequently find myself knee-deep in conversation with strangers (which works out well in the friendly Midwest), and I was able to talk to lots of these fun, creative people! I’d love to post more photos about what I purchased, but I don’t want to ruin any Christmas surprises!
Until next time!
