Whatever Makes You Weird

Whatever makes you weird is probably your greatest asset.

Just love this Joss Whedon quote.


Traffic Light Google Doodle

This recent Google Doodle paying homage to the 101st anniversary of the first electric traffic light is adorable.


Loch Ness Monster Google Doodle

Although, this one celebrating the 81st anniversary of the Loch Ness Monster's most famous photograph might still be my favorite. ...so cute :).


Transparent Textures

I’ve long been a fan of Subtle Patterns, an awesome resource created and curated by Atle Mo that offers refined patterns with just the right amount of texture. These patterns are opaque, though, and, oftentimes, I find myself desiring such a pattern, but needing it to be transparent as well. In the past, I've reworked them, making them transparent myself. Recently, though, I stumbled upon a resource that renders this step in my process unnecessary. Transparent Textures is a collection created by Mike Hearn that houses the transparent counterparts to the patterns available on Subtle Patterns. ...bookmarked.


Ross + Rachel Card

I know so many people who would love to receive this card available from Moorea Seal.


Bailey Sullivan’s Design Portfolio

The bright and playful animated illustrations present on the splash page of designer Bailey Sullivan’s portfolio site, especially in contrast with the pleasant amount of tasteful white space accompanying them, are so refreshing! The texture work in her illustration pieces is wonderful as well.
