shop Jen loves Kev 08.21.2013

We have loved following the life of Jen, of Jen loves Kev, for quite some time now! Her fashion and general style is always spot on and we followed along through our own pregnancies through her preggers posts, so in a sense, we feel like we know her well, although we’ve never met! It’s no surprise that every once in a while, when Jen decides to create something new for her etsy shop, we are her number one fans, and this time is no exception! Check out these beautiful hand-painted beads that she just started making! The only problem is deciding on which one we NEED!

Playing with Type book 03.20.2013

Look mom, we’ve been published!!!!!

Our set of ampersand prints have been featured in the book, Playing with Type by Lara McCormick!!! Ahhhhh. We were literally squealing when we got this in the mail!! We’re honored to be a part of a such a cool book and highly recommend you guys all check it out! Here’s a little description from Rockport Publishing:

Playing with Type is a hands-on, playful approach to learning type application and principles. This engaging guide begins with an introduction to the philosophy of learning through the process of play. Along with a series of experimental design projects with an emphasis on type, the author provides designers with a “toolkit” of ideas and skills developed through the process of play. The awareness and sensitivity to type styles, forms, and type choices gained through these visual experiments will increase the designer’s confidence in their personal and professional work. This book can be used in the classroom or independently, and readers can go directly to exercises that appeal to them.”

Pick up a copy and look for us on pg. 31!
