welcome to in a card's blog...

i know that "cute" is not a word typically used to describe good design, but in my world, it is. if it's your first reaction to say, "aww... how cute!" then it must be just that! "C-U-T-E." and i'm talking about so incredibly, ridiculously cute that the most masculine of men will even say those three words without thinking twice about it.

and so that is what i hope to share with you on my blog...

a combination of really unique ideas, simple thoughts that come randomly into my mind, along with "cute" designs that i've designed or come across.

some things are just meant to be...

people always ask, when did you realize you wanted to do graphic design?

normally, i answer, my first year at cal poly san luis obispo when i realized i did not want to be an architect. but when i think back on this some more, i realize that i was destined to be a graphic designer as early as the age of 7. each year in grade school, we had scholastic book fairs. now, out of all the books i could have picked, the very first book i totally had to have, desperately wanted and begged my mom for was a lettering book.

the lettering book, by noelene morris

now you tell me, what in the world was a 7 year old going to do with a lettering book???
