Have you ever seen the branding from the 1968 Olympics in Mexico? It's so colorful and interesting! Graphic Ambient has the full set of imagery if you're interested, but here are some highlights:
I have 2 ideas floating around in my head for this blog, one of which will be posted tomorrow and one will be an ongoing thing for the rest of eternity. I'm excited to show everyone! I just want my content to be more share-worthy.
I haven't written in over a week?! I just realized how long it's been since my last post. What a huge fuckup, considering I just planned on posting MORE often. I can't blame myself because I've had so much going on. I'm finally finishing up a website project that was stealing my after-work time so I should have a lot more breathing room now. No more freelance projects for a long time! I like working on design projects for my friends, and by like I mean ADORE, but there just aren't enough hours in my day to make it work without me feeling frazzled.
I can't believe how many people commented, sent me messages, or sent texts/IMs about how excited they were about my plans for my blog! I didn't expect anyone to care; the post was just a thought that I felt like throwing out there to combat the seriousness of the post before it. But the fact that there is even ONE person out there, supporting the plans I have for my life and pushing me to try harder, is exciting and truly something to smile about. Thanks everybody :) You are the best motivators in the entire world.
Have you guys heard of unbaby.me? It's a browser extension that replaces images of babies in your Facebook news feed with other pictures so you don't have to look at them. It's brand new and it has blocked approximately 450,000,000 babies from appearing in my news feed since yesterday. DOWNLOAD IT if you are anything like me. I think the bulk of my dislike for babies stems from the fact that I'm from such a small town that almost everyone has at least one kid before they're 25. There is a very small amount of tolerance in my brain reserved for the word "precious" -- when I see that word over and over IT MAKES ME DO CRAZY THINGS...
Please Franklinville friends, do not take offense. I am not insulting you or your individual baby. I am insulting my own news feed, because my own news feed is a slut that happens to have about 60 kids ;)
