Hello! Fwd: is a linkletter of five weekly designthings I'll email you every Wednesday. It's projects, articles, resources, and other weird/nice/cool things to keep you inspired. Interested? It's super easy to sign up:

The current five ▾

  1. A colorful collection:
    Woah, please enjoy the bright, vibrant works that Interbrand curated for a recent show in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Violeta Hernández, Kitty Ramos, Malika Favre and Futura themselves created some stunning illustrations that are much appreciated on this rainy Minneapolis morning.
  2. A real-good refresh:
    Wondersauce worked on an overhaul of The Sill's brand, messaging, and customer experience. The resulting 500% increase in sales seems like best case scenario, and it makes me want to buy a bunch of plants.
  3. A typographic tune-up:
    TienMin Liao shares some of the subtle changes and improvements she made to a client's wordmark logo in order to make it more scalable, readable, and better overall.
  4. A strong style:
    I love the red/orange/pink color palette that Celia Jacobs brings to her illustration work. In her words, "California technicolor and West Coast sensitivity."
  5. A design decision:
    UX Movement makes the case that, rather than any standard button hover effect, the hover effect for mobile buttons is a ripple. I'm convinced.
