I know I haven’t been very active lately (with the exception of the monthly wallpaper round-up), so lets just blame that on life! Between work and my new workout routine (have any of you gone to an F-45 gym?) I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to being creative.
Last week, I had my wisdom teeth pulled, so I was home on pain meds watching a lot of tv…and of course as a millennial, I was keeping up with the Twitterverse and FB on what was happening in Charlottesville–a place that’s only a two hour drive from my house. I was so deeply saddened by what I saw, but mostly I was disgusted by the fact that President Trump didn’t denounce the bigotry and hatred that was on display. I know that this is a design blog, and that none of you come here to hear my political commentary, or world views, and that I may lose some subscribers after this post; however; as Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” So I am starting a conversation…
Yesterday, several magazines released the covers for their next week’s issue, and their take on our President’s disturbing remarks is especially evident! All three had the same idea, but with a different and unique approach in their design. I understand that design can’t save the world…but it can make it better. It can make a powerful statement, and the below images do just that. What are your thoughts…can design make a political and positive impact? Can we as designers potentially influence policy and further the political discussion?
Hey guys! Happy August :-) I hope everyone has an awesome month…I can’t believe that summer is almost over. As much as I love fall…I just don’t think I am ready yet!

I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I’ve done a Comfort of Thingy-ness post! So you know what that means…a new round up of some of my favorite covers! In case you missed them, check out Vol I/II/III/IV/V/VI/VII! What have been some of your recent favorites?
Also, if you love book covers as much as I do, you should check out the Great American Novels 1000 piece puzzle (sold only at Barnes and Noble)! I made it a few weeks back, and now it sits as a permanent (for the foreseeable future) part of my coffee table decor.

Happy March :-) It already feels like Spring, so the winter hasn’t felt as miserable as usual…but I am still excited for the official arrival of the next season! Hope you have a fabulous and creative month!
