hey friends! i haven’t really been taking very many photos this week, so i thought i would just show you what i have been doing instead- playing with my new pantone fashion + home color guide! i’m working on recoloring some of my patterns, and have had a blast using the guide this week (i can get a little obsessive about these things).

adobe illustrator keyboard shortcuts

i use shortcuts while working in adobe illustrator constantly, and find that it’s an incredible time saver! it makes things easier, quicker and more streamlined. however, it can be really hard to learn shortcuts for any new program (just put me working in photoshop and i’m lost!). that’s why i really like these keyboard shortcut guides. you can use them to refer to, or set them as your desktop background to keep them handy at all times.

i have a thing for honeycomb, and when combined with vibrant colors and pretty designs i fall in love. this packaging design by arhoj for helt honey is eye catching, fun and different. it makes me just want to pick it up and put it in my basket (marketing goal accomplished, helt)! with pretty typography, unpredictable stickers that seal and a beautiful website to boot, this company knows what they’re doing. i hope you can gather a little inspiration from it as i did!

i’m pretty sure the makers over at urban + forest designed everything in their shop with me in mind. i’ve always loved the use of birch in home decor- it can give any space a very clean, modern and rustic look all at the same time. i’m really fond of the irregular shapes in the woodcuts and soft shades of white and grey they have. head on over to urban + forest to see more.
