The New Year is coming this weekend, and it’s  time to reflect on goals for the next year.

With a little work experience under my belt, I know that I would like to know more about web design. Lynda.com has helped me tremendously in my learning of new software. School has taught me the elements of design and Lynda is teaching me how to use the tools.

I am exploring the world of package design and looking for people and places who are as interested in it as I am. I slowly wander down the aisles of Whole Foods admiring the showcase of excellent packaging. Lovely Package is one of my favorite blogs to admire packaging as well as graphic-exchange.

I’m not as connected with the Dallas Art Community as I would like and I have a goal to see more galleries ans shows. If you have any advice for breaking in to the art scene here, I’m all ears. Otherwise, you might see me soon, volunteering at the DMA.

I wish you a Happy New Year!

Good Design Made My Life Better

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.
