Let's Go Skiing!

I have to say, the Winter Olympics in Sochi have given me the itch to ski. Luckily, it just so happens that my annual trip to the mountains is only a couple of weeks from now! Though, I must confess you won't be seeing my in the Olympics any time soon...I happen to prefer cruising along at a leisurely pace, enjoying the sights and sounds and smells. This year, we'll be traveling back to Sugarbush Resort, which was an ideal place to get away from the city for a long weekend.

And with skiing on the brain, my friend Cate shared with me these gorgeous vintage ski-themed posters from the book The Art of Skiing: Vintage Posters from the Golden Age of Winter Sport on the blog Brain Pickings, which I am absolutely obsessing over! I'll be sad when the Olympic flame goes out later this week, but at least I've got my own semi-athletic pursuits on the horizon. Hah! Enjoy!

Jamie Wlodinguer: TypeFoundry Prints

I'm loving these prints from the Etsy shop TypeFoundry. They were created by the talented artist and graphic designer Jamie Wlodinguer (who also happens to be one of my inspiring colleagues at BrightLine)! She is building out two different collections, both shown below. The first, her Type Foundry collection is inspired by typography and signage she's spotted on the streets, brought to life digitally. And the second, farther below, is the Half Full collection which focuses on simple shapes and colors and showcase hand-drawn illustrations digitally rendered. Both are incredible and available for sale now. I can't wait to see more from her!
