Print design shines!

Thanks to The Paper Mill Store for featuring my work on their Graphic Design Showcase. They chose to spotlight the Design Planner I designed for Trilogy Pools.

Betsey Johnson continues to inspire me

Betsey Johnson continues to inspire me

Love the enduring individuality of Betsey! As a college student and budding artwear designer, she was among my favorite, and most inspiring, designers. I still have some of the Alley Cat pieces I scored at the time. Her work was always fun, brave and energetic, and even though I’ve all but retired my sewing machine and migrated to graphic design, I’m still inspired.

Girl just wants to have fun, and I hope I’m having this much fun at 68, and beyond. Brava!

Art Inspired Outfits

20 Jul

Delightful interpretations of popular artists’ style and color palettes in stylish and fun outfits. As a former artwear designer, I’m loving this take on clothing design. No matter the era in which the work was created, the composition is contemporary. Delicious use of color!

Ephemera: more than a cool word.

What is Ephemera? A glance at this collage is a place to start defining it. Note that those of us in print design are well-represented here. If you have additional categories, you can add them to the list here, at the Ephemera Society of America.
