Political punditry

In the glow of the latest inauguration, I wanted to share these two links showcasing two perspectives on campaign design that I found both interesting and entertaining. One, from the New York Times plays with the buzzwords of the 2008 election, and the other, from Print Magazine, reviews 40 years of political campaigning. You don't have to be a designer to appreciate the humor and insight.

Random and awesome

Disclaimer: This is not posted to showcase my creative eye, do not study this for composition, exposure, or focus. This one is all about subject matter: a restaurant that serves fresh donuts and seafood. I've passed this hidden jewel a million times in Giddings, nestled on Highway 290 between Austin and Houston and on this overcast day last March I finally got a snapshot through my windshield and just felt compelled to share. Enjoy.

Designing for a wedding

My big sister asked me to design her wedding invitations, as well as a custom logo for the event, made out of their initials. Lucky for me, this included O, leaving open a wide array of options for a custom monogram of sorts. I wanted to keep it simple, while incorporating elements of the "Urban Garden Party" wedding theme.

Check out the final logo as part of the complete wedding stationery in a few weeks!

About Kelly Tarleton

I've always been a creative person, and the one who always had a camera on-hand at a moment's notice for any occasion. Photography and graphic design dominated my life in school and I loved every minute of it. I miss that constant creative outlet and want to share more of it with my family and friends through this blog.See more of my work at my website:
