This morning I was up early to hang some TriSERIFtops art in the Nyack Starbucks. I was away all weekend at a family wedding, so it was a bit of a whirlwind between last night and this morning to get everything framed and ready. Luckily, in preparing for Providence Art Festival (September 10th) and stART on the Street (September 18th), I had lots of stuff printed already, just needed to make a bio card and a few accesssories.
The display features my alphabet posters, greeting cards, and some triangle bunting to set the celebratory mood!
Sometimes we all get stuck in a rut, using the same colors, same fonts, and same style over and over again. There’s no problem with defining your signature style, but experimenting with a little variety can help get you thinking differently & creatively!
Every week I’m going to post a color of the week. A color I wouldn’t normally use. Inspired by the season, weather, fashion trends, etc. I’ll challenge myself to integrate it into a new project, and I encourage you to do the same!
This week’s color is Pantone 441 U. This color reminds me of the weather here in New York right now. It should be winter, and there have been some very cold days, but there is still too much warmth for the streets to be covered with snow. This gray has soft green/blue undertones—that bit of warmth and color preventing winter from truly setting in.
Over the past year I’ve been slowly transferring my online presence from “Designosaurus” to “TriSERIFtops”.
Designosaurus (as cute as it is) was just used too often. There were people before me with that name, and others have started using it since. It was time for something more unique, but I wanted to keep the quirky dinosaur and graphic design references. TriSERIFtops was born!
My Etsy shop, this blog, and twitter had already made the switch. Last (and admittedly the most annoying) to switch over is my Facebook page. Starting today, my TriSERIFtops Facebook updates will be done at www.facebook.com/TriSERIFtops.
So if you’re currently a fan of my Deisgnosaurus Facebook page (or even if you’re not!), visit www.facebook.com/TriSERIFtops and like the new page today!
