Calendar Project – March

march-1

Typically , when we go to the mountains , we have a destination in mind – a trail to follow, a timeline to stick to. I don’t mind this sort of exploring, especially since it usually means ending up at a beautiful lake, waterfall, or mountain top. On occasion , though, there are situations that lend themselves to unstructured exploring. I have very fond memories of these times , frolicking in the outdoors.

One Saturday we went to Mcdonald lake, south of the Flathead. None of us had been before, so we had no expectations, no agenda, no obligations – besides to enjoy each others company. Arriving at the lake, we discovered it to be very low, with plenty of shore to hike around. We found varied terrain, a great sign for exploring! The shore began with large rock outcroppings, turning to a rock field then to a tree-stump filled swamp as we hiked, allowing us to feel as though we had covered lots of ground in a short period of time.

Ski season brought lots of friends to enjoy our wintery weather. It’s a great time showing people around and hosting them at our cabin in the woods.

I decided, in order to stay in touch with family & friends, I would put together a calendar postcard each month. Hopefully I don’t fizzle out half way through the year!

I created this logo for a client a while ago, they were in the process of opening a new furniture store in Seattle. It was a fun project to work on since there were no existing design to work with, we had a fresh clean slate! Happy to see after almost a year in business Blue Snow Montana is still doing great!

Colour Palette Moodboard: Portland

Portland Moodboardportland-colorsportland-mood-01

Have you heard of Skillshare? It is a great online resource for designers, there is a wide variety of courses covering a range of topics from “Create Your Own Geometric Animal” to “The Complete iOS Core Data Course.” I have a year subscription which included unlimited classes and offline viewing for your convenience. It is really handy if you feel you are stuck in a creative rut or would like to be inspired, the classes vary in length, the one I created this moodboard to go with: Color in Design: Create Your Own Colour Palette was 21 minutes, and with my research and design time only took me about 40 minutes to complete.

For my moodboard I chose Portland, Oregon, I recently completed Fugatives and Reguees, by Chuck Palahniuk which solidified my choice. I love exploring Portland and if I had to live in a city, that is the one I would choose. The ocean, mountains, and rivers are readily accessible, with the conveniences and quirks of one of the ‘weirdest’ cities in America.
