Happy Halloween!

It's that time of year! Halloween was always a fun holiday in my family—we worked together to create the scariest house in the neighborhood! To bring back some of those old childhood memories, here's a montage of some Halloween-inspired graphic design to get you in the spirit for this weekend!

Plus, I just couldn't resist sharing these amazing pumpkin designs! I wish everyone a safe, fun, and, oh yes, super scary Halloween. Mwah-ha-ha-ha!

Cool Finds: Wall Decor

So, in-between client design work, I've been researching ways to spruce up the Kalico office a bit.

Walls Painted…check.
Shelving Up…check.
A few new pieces of furniture…check.

Now what I need are some cool things to hang on the walls. Yes, I may end up hanging some of my own design work, but let's face it, I stare at my own designs all day! I want some fresh, fun and creative pieces to decorate the wall space. Here's a few samples of some of my finds—which one is your favorite?

Let me know which one(s) you like the best! Have other suggestions? Please send them on over. Working in a creative, inspiring environment helps lead to creative, inspired work. And --> THIS GIRL <-- is ready for some changes in my workspace!
