The start of guidelines for our 2021 website. Love using @figmadesign to craft some dope #web and #app #design!
Working on a design system in #figma. It feels invigorating to learn new game changing tools!#designlife #colors #designsystem
Bringing ideas to life is sweaty, head scratching, smelly, coffee consumption. Sometimes you throw your arms up and wonder what you are doing. But, deep breaths, perspective reorienting and then... boom. Your on the right path. You get to see things through. You truly can, do this. You always could, and you always will be able to... do this!#illustration #ipadpro #journaling #creativeprocess
Working on a little landing page design. What is a unicorn? It’s magic. It’s whimsy, happiness, uniqueness. How can we use design to make these things prominent in everyday life? #designinspiration #journaling #unicorns🦄
Working on an icon illustration can be quite laborious. You can dive into the details, get lost in the vector points. It's like life. You get lost in your work and have no idea where you are sometimes. But, when you come up for air, close your eyes, take a breath, you see just how much work you have done. It can be awesome. I dunno, thought I would share: just keep going. Keep plugging away. You really can do it, I promise!#illustration #hipstamatic #journaling
Being you. You are easily enough. You are unique. No one has been created just like you. Tapping into who my 'You Is' has and continues to be a long journey. I have learned this so far: it's ok to be 'you.' You need to be you. You have something to say, show, sing, dance, write, wear, make.⠀We need you.People will tell you to do this and that.Listen to your gut. Tell your story.People will hold your 'You' down.Let those people be. Your 'You' will change their heart.It's all part of the journey. Cheesy, but true. Keep pressing forward.You are enough, vibrant, unique.⠀Have a good weekend, fam!⠀#artlovers #positive #poetry #artoninstagram #instagramartist #instartist #creation #artwork #write #create #weekend #story #tellyourstory #graphicdesigndaily #geometricart #vector #vectorart #digitalart #illustrator #design #arthub #pencil
How can illustration help me? How can it help my brand? Why should I invest in illustration?⠀TLDR Answer: Illustration is a powerful way to tell your brand's story. People connect with Illustrations on a deep level. Illustrations are a powerful way to convey big ideas in bit size chunks.⠀Storytime: A client hired us to develop their brand through identity tweaks and web design heavy with illustrations. It was incredibly fun to ask a hundred questions to uncover brand gems. By asking all of these questions, we developed this brand and produced brand characters and service illustrations. The client could take our illustrations and import them into Canva and continue to tell his evolved visual story on more mediums than their website. That was incredibly empowering for them. Having a bank of illustrations to choose from, they could develop a social media post-campaign for a couple of months out, right away! Wow.⠀Stay spicy fam!⠀#creative #expert #graphicdesign #career #entrepreneur #tips #brands #personalbranding #branding #digitalart #picture #loveyou #vector #illustrator #artwork #illustration #art #drawing #arthub #instagood #instaart #services #marketing #business #webdesign #designhub

Boo-hoo, why didn't they pick you?⠀Our first post in a series called "Rejected Logos". It is a pretty vulnerable experience to share work that has been rejected. But, it is a good conversation starter. "Oh hey, we hate that and get that away from us, you vile fiend..." - ok but "why?"⠀The 'why' is a goldmine.⠀This rejected logo was for a company called Permit Place. They do permit services on the West Coast. They do all that nasty and tedious work of getting you a permit so you can open up a restaurant. The checkmark was to show that they are getting things checked off a list. Their software uses a list as a primary indicator to their clients. We thought "minimal p that shows depth - like a building - and then a checkmark." We thought it was a minimal boss and had good memorability. So did the client. The client was super torn.⠀Why did they reject this logo?⠀Ultimately - we gave them a mascot as another option, which they chose. Mascots rock.⠀Bye!⠀⠀⠀⠀#newlogo #design #brand #logo #logologo #logodesign #logos #inspiration #designing #designinspiration #digitalart #modern #art #pirategraphic #designspiration #letterlogo #logoinspiration #graphicarts #graphicdesign #graphic_designer #designblog #designcentral
Whether you are using a sixth of an inch to set your type, working in the world of print, or being a digital ninja, we have to push it.⠀Push yourself in setting fantastic type.Push print into new realms.Push digital beyond the imagination.⠀This shirt is a reminder to push it no matter what design medium we rock. Think of it like a mini-manifesto that you wear around (the house - darn you, Covid).⠀This shirt is awesome looking on women and men, and is tri-blend.  Feels so legit.⠀Snag this shirt here: https://store.tickyboom.com/push-it-tri-blend-t-shirt/⠀⠀⠀⠀#instafashion #instarock #typography #active #trendsetter #tshirt #font #men #women #woman #man #design #shirt #shirts #imagination #print #letteringart #type #helvetica #pixels #design #graphicdesigner #graphicdesign
Illustration for Apps Is fun. The idea that users can have some enjoyment from your illustration, doing a menial task is exciting.⠀We did these illustrations for an onboarding portion of an app design and a full brand development we worked on last year. It was great to have the freedom to infuse cuteness or what's called 'kawaii' in other cultures. Who says you can't smile while doing everyday things?⠀⠀⠀⠀#geometricart #positive #techy #technology #product #culture #kawaii #productdesign #design #web #webui #ui #graphicdesigner #graphicdesign #inspiration #designing #designinspiration #digitalart #modern #art #design #pirategraphic #designspiration #icons #icondesign

You're my hero! Wait, what is a hero?⠀Does a hero have a cape?No, no, no.⠀A hero in the web design game is that first section someone sees when your site loads. You can say a lot with a solid hero.⠀What is this hero accomplishing?It is saying:"I am awesome; here is my following, and here I am in action."All in one shot.⠀You're my hero!⠀#web #design #webdesign #webui #digitalart #modern #art #designspiration #designinspiration #uidesign #coaching #uxdesign #wordpress #designer #web #ui #ux #branding #seo #websitedesign #webdeveloper
Going to be controversial here, but typography might be one of your website's most meaningful aspects. Full stop.⠀One part of implementing good web typography is setting bomb line length or measure. When your measure is too long, you can physically wear out your reader and confuse. Eew, let's treat our users better.⠀At our design podcast, we went in-depth on what line length is, how it affects your users, and how to implement that good line length.⠀𝗟𝗶𝗻𝗸 i𝗻 𝗯𝗶𝗼, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗲𝗻𝗷𝗼𝘆!⠀⠀⠀#typography #typefaces #love #letters #graphicdesign #design #fonts #typo #web #webdesign #digitaldesign #elementor #beaverbuilder #time #learning #text #webdev #digitalart #vector #illustrator
