geek out: inspiring design

by lizzie & isaiah on July 27, 2011 · 16 comments

We are overloaded with freelance projects. We’ve had an astounding number of logo clients lately and we’ve found a little bit of a knack for branding lately, so we’ve also been participating in sites like 99Designs and CrowdSpring when we’re down on clients. Although, now it’s quite the addiction. We can’t stop jumping into new projects and accepting new clients and eventually, we’ll have to say no, but for now, Isaiah works 9-5 on client projects while I’m at work and then when I get home, we pick a new project or three to submit for.

We can’t wait to share some new identities with you, but while they’re still in progress, here’s a peek into some of our inspiration from some brilliant designers.

The work of Jamie Cullen via Grain Edit found on Eight Hour Day

Love it love it, especially the Cabinet of Revelry logo. Annamarie’s work is so rad. I’m excited to see what you’ve been up to lately! If it’s anything like what I’ve seen in the past I know it will be great!

This stuff is AMAZING! It also makes me wish my damn blog design would hurry up and happen already-thanks for reminding me of my impatience.

Haha. I wish we could handle our redesign more effectively too…and a website…and getting some new shit in the shop because we hate everything in it and blah. There’s no time, yo!

Oh wow, visuals like these make me wish maybe I’d studied design/graphic design/or something along those lines, after all …

Thank you for your comment! Your blog’s a beauty.
