Happy Friday aka weekend eve! I’m so excited for all the events I have this weekend (sneak peak: a fun photo shoot in the works happening Saturday!) and to have a few days to relax a little more. Hope you all have a great weekend!
Axis is a sans serif font that is great for headlines, posters or a small amount of text overlay. The free download only comes in the bold weight, but I love the width of the letters, and it’s legibility. Download Axis from here! Enjoy!
Hello October! I love this time of year…Halloween, then Thanksgiving then the holiday season! Here is hoping for some fall weather in LA in the coming weeks. September was great and full of busy events, new clients and great times. I can’t wait to share more of my current projects. Happy Tuesday!
Happy Friday! Here’s a little end of the week motivation to push through until the weekend. Here’s hoping for some cooler temps this weekend around LA.
Prata is a nice serif font that comes in only one weight + style. But, it does have that killer ampersand. I am a big fan of ampersands with a little flair or personality, and will be adding this to my list of favorites!
Last year, IKEA launched a stationery, paper goods + decor line in Europe. It is now available in the US, and it is awesome. The colors and designs range from bright + vibrant to Victorian era themed. Take a look, what are your favorites?

I’ve been pretty busy with some freelance work lately so thought I would share a mood board for one of my projects. I gave the client three different directions for them to choose from which would then dictate the look and feel for the new site. Which is your favorite?
#1: Golden Vibes
#2: Floral Fun
#3: Positively Pastel
[I take no credit for any of the beautiful images posted in the mood boards.]
After a temporary hiatus, Font Friday is back in full swing. Today’s font is inspired by cowboys, wild west signage and mostly, Frontierland at Disneyland. Enjoy!
Corki is a slim slab font that has southern charm and flair. The font comes in both upper + lower case, with four different weights/types. It also contains numerous glyphs that make for fun designs or posters. Enjoy, and don’t forget to read the licensing before using.
