girl crushes

21 Jul

A while back at my RSblog I had a post titled GIRL CRUSHES – I would link to it now, if I hadn’t inadvertently deleted 3 MONTHS worth of posts, so instead I will re-create and even expound upon it, as Photographer Suzanne Cofer has since added another girlworthy of crushing on to her archives.

The ABOVE images are all of Alexandra Tapie. Aside from being super lovely, both looking and in personality, she is a rather talented musician, singer and artist…Cleveland is very lucky to have her…and ROOM SERVICE is lucky to have her art up for sale RIGHT NOW 🙂

The 2nd set of images above are all of ROXANNE STARNIK, who looks unbelievably ethereal in these stunning images. Roxanne, also an amazing singer is in JJ magazine and just released an album with her solo project, BLISSE.

machines and the human touch

21 Jul

I often try to put as much of a “human touch” on anything that I make with a computer. From graphics to music, it seems that “personality” can be easily left out by letting the machine do most of the work.

The DREDGERS UNION header at the top of this page was made by placing each letter in, one at a time, by hand.  I like the slight “tension” created by the letters not being perfectly aligned, as they would have been if I had simply typed them and let the computer decide where each letter was going to be placed.

There are plenty of opportunities in the design process to step in and take some of the control back from the computer.  This post on Design Sponge falls in line with this idea.
