An Ode to good donuts and good design. I especially like the curve of the lid covering my coffee and image explaining the difference between a latte and cappuccino. A Dukin Donut makes it a good morning.
I’ve absorbed some good web design recently. I found some resources to share. If you want to start your own website but don’t want to start from scratch, I would suggest using cargo collective. If you want to start blogging, I would of course suggest Word Press. Both look great, are customizable, and have people willing to help you out 24-7.
Bellow are links to generate ideas for the look you may want.

This logo is based on a sink in my grandparents home. I think it works well in a large format but I am thinking I need to simplify the smaller one, similar to what Potbelly does for their logo. I like the sink in my favorite colors. I’m open to any thoughts about it or how to improve it. Is it readable, does any area confuse or bother you? Thank you for your opinion.

This post features Chipotle’s design. I tend to like the hand written font which is as interesting as an image and can even form to one. It feels like my friend Marcella wrote this for me which in turn, makes Chipotle feel like a place of friends.
I realize I may be taking a risk talking about this, but I think it’s worth it. I promise I’m only going to talk about design.
The design is fun, feminine, modern, and makes me feel more comfortable about myself which is why I smile every time I open another package and why I feel inspired to make the mundane of the world something more exciting.
I adore Kotex’s new brand look. I use to think of Kotex as an old lady brand but with their new design, I don’t want to buy anything but Kotex. Finally something that I’m excited to get out of the box every month because of the colors and playfulness. I also appreciate the smallness of each package and the added education to each box. I think many girls and even women are embarrassed about the subject and therefore aren’t properly educated about their own selves. All in all, the design is a success in my book. I’m happy and so are they. So designers let’s keep making life a little better.
