Wise Words

Sometimes life can just be tough and the future a little unclear – it’s moments like these that we need to just step back and realise that “This too shall pass”.

If you too are going through a rough patch, I hope these words of inspiration will feed your soul.

Typography good enough to eat

Jessica Hische is a true inspiration to me. I have always envied her gorgeous typography talents and consider myself super lucky to have heard her speak at the Design Indaba – so amazing indeed.

Well now I can say I truly have drooled over her work – check out her latest project for Starbucks (in colaboration with BBDO). So gorgeous (and all edible). I have died and gone to heaven!

Go for it – it’s Wednesday after all.

Good Morning – today is the already the middle of the week – wow! This week is escaping quickly.
Go out there and make today count.

Seize the day


I admit – it’s been a long while since my last post – in that time so much has happened.

I launched two new and exciting websites – really cool.
Alexis and I travelled to the other side of the globe & visited 5 new countries – so so amazing!
Then sadly we came home to a mini train smash/family crisis that needed a lot of immediate decision making and a bunch of lifestyle changes for all concerned – not ideal.

So sadly, blogging and getting back into the swing of things has taken a back seat – also not great.
BUT – this week I am determined not to let the outside world get the better of things, so I hope to be back to some form of routine as soon as possible.

Thanks for hanging in there with me.

Here’s to not giving in and not letting life overwhelm you!

Early Birds

It’s 7am and the sun isn’t even up yet – winter really is not agreeing with me. Thankfully we leave for Europe on Friday and apparently the sun is up in Berlin at 4:30 in the morning. Hooray!

Do you also need at least two cuppa’s to face the dark and cold world? Then you are going to love this packaging from Douwe Egberts – Simply divine.

Weird is Rad

Just a quick hello and an appology for the lack of posts on my blog recently – been very busy working on a cool website for an even cooler commercials director (soon to be launched) and planning our trip to Europe.

Smile more

Hey – it’s June already! TO spite the fact that the temperatures are dropping madly and getting up in the dark is the worst torture – I love June. It’s the middle of 2014 and on the 21st it’s the Winter Solstice (also the shortest day of the year) and after that the days start getting longer again – YEAH!.

This June is also extra special as it’s full of epic birthday celebrations – starting with my Mum’s 70th and ending on Alexis’s big 40th – with a couple of other birthdays sprinkled in between. All in all a fabulous month to be happy and grateful – to remember to smile more.

Words to end your week with

As much as I have loved this short week, trying to squeeze five days of work into three really has thrown my work routine out of whack – as a result my “to do” list for today is laughable. Never mind – I will survive, especially if aided by a strong espresso and a healthy chunk of chocolate.

So, to end your week on an enlightened note, here are the wise words of Ernest Hemingway (beautifully illustrated by Lisa Congdon).

Hope your Friday is super productive too.

Happy Monday

I have my moments and last week I spotted this brilliant graphic and it could not have been more true.
Let’s hope this week is a little less tricky!

Happy Monday folks.
