It's about random photos, lovely places and appreciating what is here.

As a graphic design student, I’m constantly thinking about the way things look, and the way they could look, in terms of layout, typefaces, colour, logos, etc. That means that I’m hyper aware of all the design around me in everyday … Continue reading
I used to LOVE to make collages when I was a kid. I remember getting a bunch of Vogue magazines from Susanna Fuller (a neighbour’s daughter who was in her late teens or early twenties – I don’t remember exactly, … Continue reading
Back in February I got rid of Instagram on my phone. I was in a mood for a few months there where I just didn’t want much social media or much to do with my iPhone. I felt like I … Continue reading
