bits of inspiration – #37.

This is definitely the most beautiful website dedicated to bears. I highly recommend that everyone take some time to navigate around National Geographic’s “A Bear’s-Eye View of Yellowstone” page. Really well crafted imagery, video and navigation all throughout this site – plus a chance to see the world through the eyes of a bear!

from the 2016 webbys – 2 kinds of people.

2 Kinds of People was the 2016 People’s Voice winner for the weird / web category in this year’s Webby Awards. I came across the site for the first time today while browsing through this year’s list of winners and found myself drawn to these simple illustrations with their funny and direct observations about how people live and organize everyday things in their lives. Below are a few of my favorites. I encourage you to check out the site along with all the other Webby winners.

type pairings from around the web.

Like most graphic designers I have a special place in my heart for typography. Whether designing a website or a wedding invitation, one of the most time-consuming challenges for me can be finding two typefaces that really compliment one another. This article by designmodo offers some really well-excuted type pairings from around the web. I’m especially loving the Europa/Garamond pairing from exposure.co.
