Flickr Mondays-Hues of Orange

So happy the sun is out today…even if it is for a short time.

Thought these 1960′s/1970′s National Geographic scans of photographs were so beautiful…and that they all tied together so well with the hint of oranges throughout.

Raffle for Japan

There are a number of artists and designers creating work to help in Japan — including Scout Books, Jesse LeDoux via Tiny Showcase, and W+K Studio to name a few. But, we just heard from Diem Chau (who we’ve blogged about in the past 1, 2) that she is holding a raffle on her site to raise money for the Japanese Red Cross Society. Raffle tickets will cost $10 and two winners will be selected at random to receive a 3-crayon family portrait. She’s already sold 400 tickets and is aiming to sell 1000 by March 23 when the raffle ends. Diem is donating 100% of the raffle earnings to Red Cross, so it seems like an awesome way to help out and maybe get some art in the process.

Complete raffle details can be found on her blog. If art isn’t your thing, you can donate directly to a number of organizations here.

Flickr Mondays—Angeles Peña

I was having a hard time finding someone to post about today until I happened upon Angeles Peña’s beautiful work. I love that she’s able to capture so many different types of shots with the rainbow. Amazing.

Local Weather


Who knew weather forecasts could be so pretty? Apparently, Steffi Gloor and Kurt Riedi did. That little rain image is making San Francisco seem a little less dreary today.
Check out their awesome local weather forecast site here.

TypograFriday: Live the Language

The first time I went to Europe, I went on an EF tour — plus, I have travel on my mind right now — so these videos are right up my alley. They are lovely and educational, but what makes the Live the Language series extra special is the fantastic regionally-appropriate typography, done by Albin Holmqvist. I hope they add one for Rome — I’m trying to learn Italian, and I love any opportunity to see Italy.




Flickr Mondays—Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day! Ran across some really cute, pretty photos of all the thoughtful breakfasts people on the flickr community, “Share the love” have prepared for each other.

Enjoy!

Black Swan

I haven’t gotten a chance to see Black Swan yet, but I really want to. These international teaser posters for the movie are  making me want to see it even more. The posters are available as iPhone and desktop wallpapers from the Black Swan site. I haven’t yet been able to find them for purchase, but there is a mix of real and fake ones on ebay. Does anyone know who designed these posters?

UPDATE: The posters were designed buy La Boca. Also, in addition to finding the posters on ebay, Fox Seachlight has launched a shop where you can purchase the posters along with other merchandise with La Boca’s designs.

Happy Monday All!

These landscapes shots of beautiful Canada are leaving me so excited to visit there again! Canada is one of those places that I keep wanting to go back for more. Such a beautiful place, and I’ve seen so little of it.

Photography-Katie Quinn Davies

Sorry for the delayed posting! These beautiful photos from Katie Quinn Davies reminds me how beautiful food can be. I’m already missing the delicious Thanksgiving food!

Sorry for the “X’s” in the upper right-hand corner–these are screenshots taken from her site.

Happy Monday!

Really excited that we have a short week at work with lots of home-cooked meals to look forward to at the end of the week!

Ran across this beautifully curated flickr gallery by “Kid_Curry.” These photos remind me how pretty and cozy fog can be.

Enjoy!
