You make me crazy
You make me wild
Just like a baby
Spin me around like a child
I like how Lana del Rey is highly stylized, but there are little cracks in the wall that sometimes let her personality thorugh. I love watching interviews like this, with random a cappella moments (“Million Dollar Man” is one of my favorites from her album), nervous foot twistings, and smiles. I couldn’t help but take screen caps and I must say I love her logo. She is a brand, and having a logo helps solidify it. People can argue her real/fakeness until kingdom come, but she’s definitely doing something right because she has everyone’s attention.
It isn’t that hard boy to like you or love you
I would follow you down down down,
Cause you’re unbelievable
If you’re going crazy just grab me and take me
I would follow you down down down, anywhere anywhere
Things I’m liking now: patterns, noise filters, gradient maps, quotation marks, and Lana del Rey.
The saddest part
of a broken heart
Isn’t the ending
so much as the start.
Here is some more free-form design. I think it’s helping me get moving. I have been so wrapped up in “is this the right typeface,” “does this even look good,” and “does this convey the meaning,” that I’ve become over-critical with my work. I’ll be damned if I lose my passion for design in my search for the perfect and error-free portfolio. Perfection is overrated. If this particular design is about anything, it’s about throwing rules out the window.
I’ve been in a creative slump, maybe because I’m less than three months away from graduating. Today I realized that I have gotten in an absolute rut and I have lost the joy of “freeform” creating. I think I’ll try to start creating more things aimlessly, in hopes that my purposeful designs will benefit.
Well, my teachers, they built this retaining wall of memory,
all those multiple choices I answered so quickly.
And got my grades back and forgot just as easily,
but as least I got an A.
And so I don’t have them to blame.
Ellie Goulding is one of my favorite things of 2011. I don’t care if her music is wildly popular; it is for a reason. She is lovely and she has provided my life with words that describe weird emotions that don’t fit under normal categories, ie. “Why can’t we speak another language, one we all agree on.” I THINK I HAVE THIS EMOTION ALL THE TIME. There isn’t one word for it.
