Vine App

I'm hanging with the cool kids on Vine as of yesterday. What is Vine? an app similar to twitter and instagram where you can post quick 7 second videos. Because we all don't have enough to do online right? Lets try it out and see what happens.

I was trying to upload my printing video I just made but alas I'll need a day or two to sort that out. Meanwhile download the Vine App at the apple store you can look for me as @richiedesigns.

art accidents

when I'm setting up a job I often use old sheets with other items on them and just overprint till the ink gets up to where I need it to be. Sometimes these overprints make the best accidental art.

More sleep and neon lips make for an interesting combo.

if you followed me on instagram you would see cool sh*t like this all the time well sometimes. @richiedesigns

special project

I assembled a special wedding gift design project this weekend. A friend contacted me and said can you turn these lyrics into a poster for some friends getting married? black / white and modern. Voilá. [The actual lyrics are small and not visible from this vantage point.]

I'm not going to pretend to be a framer thought. I always have to cut two before I get it right. Today was no exception. Not to mention my office having been blown up in the process.

Now, if it would only ship safely to it's destination I would be so happy.

New in the store: Neon Pink Desk Set

I'm not going to lie...most of my letterpress is to humor myself. I've been gathering little funny sayings, taped all over the place.

I couldn't decide on just one for a greeting card [just yet] so I just did them all. It's the perfect compromise if you ask me.

They're now available in the store

each set includes:
wait for it...
That's shady
True Story
if brittany can get through shaving her head you can get through this [personal fav]
What the Wha?
And then this happened

New Year

I took almost 5 whole days off in a row over the holiday. Two of which I barely left my bed, not because I was sick but just because I wanted to – it's something that hasn't happened in a few years. Afternoon naps, a few walks, a yoga class. I really, really needed that break. I don't know about you but 2012 kicked my ass. I'm regrouping, cleaning out my life [hello recycling bin half full of paper] and plotting 2013. I don't have any big answers right now, only that I can't repeat last year – something's got to give.

I'm Looking forward to more balance, more visits with friends, more rest, more thoughtful and fulfilling work, more time with my love. I hope 2013 brings you everything you want, even things you didn't know you needed.
