What I Designed Today: OK Mozart International Music Festival T-Shirts

I submitted about 9 different designs and these are my favorite versions.  The local printer prefers one color, so I was challenged to do an eye catching design while only using one or two colors to keep costs low.  Mission accomplished!  Which design would you prefer?  Do you think Mozart actually said these quotes?  Logo front pocket, this design printed large on the back side of the t-shirt design.

In the end, in a somewhat heated debate, my client chose to print two different designs — each of which was liked by different personnel who adamantly did not like the other design!  Which makes me think of the phrase, “If everybody likes what you’re doing, you’re doing something wrong!” Not a bad motto to live by! I’m curious, though, which of the two below would you choose?

I planted some mums in this cute planter and Don put them up near the front door for me – so cute! His honey-do list is shrinking.

I found the sign above on our trip to Omaha over Labor Day weekend and had to bring it home. Love it and it hangs in our living room now.

Temple & Scripture Poster

I am so, so, so very excited to get one of these printed up on a canvas for our new home. It will be a 24 x 36 inch size (2′ x 3′) hanging portrait/vertically. I need to fix some of the typography but I think it will be pretty.

Graphic Design by David Wardle

Great typography and design. UK based artist David Wardle has quite a portfolio. He’s also one of the founders of the website Bold & Noble which I posted about earlier here.

Nameflat’s Personalized Name Artwork

Spotted on Cookie. Check out Nameflat‘s kids’ name artwork – great stuff. Very personal. What kid doesn’t enjoy seeing his own name in print? Great gift idea!

Inspiring Posters for Trying Times

I originally posted about the top photo from Cookie here. First spotted on the Cookie website, there was “Keep calm and carry on.” Now there’s “Make do & mend.” Common sense with a visual reminder. Great for the times we are living in. Make do & mend originated with Bold & Noble but spotted on Decor8.
