1. Playtype

    1 Comment

    Just a little something to spark creativity this Monday morning. Playtype is an online type foundry created by the Copenhagen-based design agency, e-Types. I’ve found it to be a source of inspiration for type heavy designs that are also based on the principal of less is more.

  2. Lesson Learn-ing: Take an E-course


    I’m a big believer of continuing your education way past your school days. I also believe that there is no reason why the learning can’t be fun. I’d suggest taking an e-course to strengthen your blog, or learn a few extra things about your freelance process/business.

    I’ve had my eyes on a few classes that I hope to get around to taking in 2013.
    1. Braid E-course: Braid is a creative and consulting company that is now offering e-courses. I’m particularly interested in the Dream Customer Catcher class. Check it out here.
    2. Oh Joy RX: Joy of Oh Joy offers brand brainstorming, career advisory, portfolio development, and product feedback. Learn more here.
    3. Alt Summit/ Alt Channel: A diverse mix of classes for only $15 each. A new class is offered every few days. I’ve got my eye on the “Media Kits That Will Make You Money” class by Victoria Hudgins. View all December classes here.

    Have you guys taken an e-courses or attending any conferences that you’ve found to be valuable to your career or personal development. I’d love to hear about them!

  3. Hermes 3000


    A few years I acquired a lovely mint typewriter, a Hermes 3000. He sat on my shelf looking pretty, but wasn’t really functioning. Right before the holiday I deduced to get that bad boy out, order a new ink tape and learn how to clean all the keys. I was pretty proud of myself for getting him up and running and now, I’m kind of addicted. The sound is amazing!

  5. Frankie Magazine Gift Paper Book

    1 Comment

    Hey guys. I hope everyone is done with their Christmas shopping and has starting their wrapping. This year I’m mixing things up a bit and using the NEW Frankie Magazine Gift Paper Book. Thanks to the lovely ladies over at Frankie, I was lucky enough to receive the book to have a little fun.

    The book is filled with 50’s inspired colorful gift wrap papers (10 sheets) that you can tear out and use as you wish. I chose to use the paper in 3 different ways – paper cranes, wrapping presents, and confetti. I had a lot of fun with the book and I can’t wait for the release so all of you can test it out.

    *Thanks Frankie Magazine for thinking of The Veda House to have some fun with your latest product.

    Buy the book here for $30.
