This beautiful sign-of-the-times Valentines is by Emily Macdowell, you can buy one here.

As a big fan of designing for content, I do like this infographic outlining the process of responsive web design.
 As designers, it makes sense that we design our lives, right?
 These vintage valentines cards are pretty creepy….
 Love this campaign by Team Detroit encouraging young people and their parents to consider art school.
 Should you google that person?
 This is an excellent, excellent article on being a designer.
 Beautiful words from a father to his daughter, and a clever spin on beauty ad copywriting.
 Why do Lego Girls just sit about all day? I’d like to know too please…
 This is too cute, Toco the Cat and his human, growing up together.

Advice to Sink in SlowlyThis is my contribution to Advice to Sink in Slowly, an ongoing series of posters designed by graduates for the purpose of passing on advice and inspiration to first year students.

My advice is ‘If you don’t create it, it doesn’t exist’. When I was a student I often felt demotivated by comparing myself to other students/designers/agencies and lacked confidence in my work, and sometimes felt inhibited by this. Whereas the reality is that students are probably creatively at their free-est. I’d like to encourage them to be free, and unafraid and to have confidence in their ability; every creative has something totally unique to offer.

And because it’s nice to be nice you can download a free iPhone wallpaper of the print here.
