To Hold It In Your Hands

Books_UppercaseBrief

I created the image above for a somewhat ambiguous design brief that asked me to create a pattern around the ideas of paper and folding.

When I think of paper, I think of…something I can hold in my hands. It’s tangible. It has texture. Weight. You can breath it in. You can decorate it–add your own thoughts and expressions (however that may take shape for you). You can experience the thoughts and expressions of others.

We live in a digital age where so much is here and gone in an instant. It’s probably the artist in me, but I believe I will always prefer the tactile (more enduring) experience of paper.

Finding Patience

I didn’t write the words above–they were on a card I received, but they are helping me stay sane today.

C’mon Baby. We’re ready to meet you.
