My logo

ca. 2007

I designed this logo back in late 2006 early 2007 before I knew anything about logo’s. Because I received such good feed back i never changed it. It was inspired by stencil art, I was heavy into the street rebellion at that time.

JM logo revamped

My original logo was so simple that I wanted to replicate it from memory and somehow I came up with this. A lil too bold eh?

These are not the Original toys.  My mother found this dude who makes replicas of vintage metal toys. These toys brought back an unforgettable nostalgia for her and showed me how simple and well made these old toys were.

Snow day

March 3, 2009

I hope everyone enjoyed the Snow day we had. I heard it was the first time FIT was closed in 5 years. Thats pretty cool. I stayed at my parents house for the weekend and I was digging in the crates and found a couple of interesting things. Vintage toys and a cigarette holder that once belonged to my great uncle.

Where do you find inspiration?
Alot of times we go online to look for inspiration. One time my friend (interior design student) said she needs some inspiration and she was gonna buy some new Interior Design mags. I told her that maybe she should look in mags that have nothing to do with Interior Design, I told her to get some sculpture and fine arts magazines and maybe those things will inspire her to create something that no one else has thought of. If we look for inspiration in things that are already exist then we are just remixing some other artists designs. Depending on the brief of the project we should pull from everywhere not just other designs.

Its as easy as they say

March 1, 2009

Well, blogger community its done. I finally decided to make a blog. I feel like students (people in general) do things that we dont think other people do and when someone tells us that they do it we are surprised and we feel a connection. This blog will connect us as people + Designers + students.

I sit and look at design blogs for hours at a time, I look at them so much that sometimes I need a break from looking at other peoples work and I have to get away from the computer and do my own work. This blog is a way to enter the life of a designer+student. I plan on showing the world what it is to be a design student and throw in some tips and tricks.
