I don’t know why I took this long to redesign the logo for La Garçonne (my menswear inspiration collective, not the online boutique), but voilà! Here it is!
My aim was to design a logo that was: a) easy on the eyes and b) had both masculine and feminine elements, which is really what characterizes a garçonne in the first place. I think I achieved both those things in this logo, using the two fonts, Learning Curve and Lane.
The only problem with this is that it does not work well in smaller scales.
So it is not perfect, but it is definitely an improvement from the previous one!
I was going to take up Project 365 again this year, and take a disposable camera photo everyday for a year. But, to my utter disappointment, I could not obtain a disposable camera in time for the first day of 2011. :(
So I decided to change it up a bit and draw everyday instead! Maybe I’ll post some of my drawings when things get dry around here, but you can expect to see each one for each day on my old, abandoned Project 365 blog.
Any of you taking up a Project 365 of your own?
So, here we are. A few steps away from another year of our existence. Twenty-eleven. 2011. The future.
Honestly, I’m sort of sad to see 2010 go. It’s been a good year for me. I’ve been doing a lot of self-discovery these past months and I feel that I know myself better now. There’s still some things I’m not happy with (such as my absolute laziness!), but I’m working on it and I’m excited for what’s to come.
To my friends, new and old, all of you: Thank you. So much. You guys made my year! I’ll never forget summer school, our “Spontaneous Fridays”, all the work we did for the yearbook/newspaper, our time in New York, in the thrift stores, and especially in the school basement, down in the Art room. OMG, we’re graduating this year!
To all the cool bloggers and online peeps: I know I’m terrible at commenting, but know that I’m always lurking your sites and reading your posts. Keep em’ coming! Next year I’ll try to send you guys stuff! Thanks for visiting. :)
Screw New Year’s resolutions, just have a happy 2011!!!
I told myself that I would do some art during the holidays, so instead of taking photos of what I got for Christmas, I drew them! It’s times like these that I fully embrace being part of a big family. Lots of presents and lots of laughter!
Okay, now I’m starting to sound sappy. But this was seriously one of the best Christmases we’ve had, as far as I remember. No one was being a Scrooge and whining over what they did/didn’t get.
I guess we’re all growing up.
Edit: I caved and took a few photos.
The red, Keep Calm and Carry On book (which is a weekly planner and a hipster essential) is from my dear sister, the photo album underneath from Amanda, the chocolates + $30 Chapters gift card from Beatrice (my Secret Santa), the mittens + $15 green iTunes gift card from my older brother, and the canvas bag under all of those…
…was from my other Secret Santa, Sonali. She painted that Dumbledore quote on there, which is a testament to how awesome and talented she is :’)
When she handed me this, she hinted that there was a second addition to the gift which would come later.
