i need nice things

While browsing through Pinterest the other day I came across this giant 9 print and thought it was amazing. It's from a shop called I Need Nice Things which aims "to make contemporary art collectible, changeable and most important of all, affordable."

When we finally get around to decorating our studio you can bet we'll be checking out I Need Nice Things!

on being a tourist in your own town

We had a busy weekend showing our cousin from Australia around Austin. It included a food tour, scenic overlook adventures and Peter Pan mini golf!

The second hole at Peter Pan Mini Golf.
Gourdough's Big.Fat.Donuts.
Hands down one of our fave food trucks.

Despite the scorching heat we had a fun time being a tourist in our own city!

Did you do anything fun this weekend?

the cream + chels and will + huckleberry hitched

One part of our company that we're just beginning to grow is Huckleberry Hitched [wedding coordination and styling]. We're really excited about it, and even more so because Chels and Will are getting hitched themselves!

In other exciting wedding news:
The Cream Event is coming to Austin in January. When it was announced we were pretty thrilled.

You can bet we'll be there with bells on!
Have you ever attended an event like Hitched/The Cream?

Deer in the Headlights

A few weekends ago we took a drive into the Texas hill country and found this amazing little cafe/shop called Highs.

 We're really into the cafe-shop-duo concept.
 If it were fall I think we would have stayed on their porch for ages.
We also caught the Deer In the Headlights Theater show and saw the poster we designed for them posted all over town!

Have you taken any fun road trips lately?

client spotlight: one green street

Earlier this year we had the pleasure of working with One Green Street 'an organic lifestyle destination' in Houston. We love wandering around Sherry's shop and reading her posts! She's got tons of neat things like eco-friendly nail polish and facts about foxes/urban sprawl. If you're ever in the area, go!
Check out her blog design:

See her site too!

It was hard to choose just one of Jessica Hische's projects, but isn't this one amazing?
We love her fonts and her sense of humor is pretty great too.

packaging pretty

Some of us in the crew don't even like mustard, but we're all pretty in love with this one. I mean...look at the typography. Good packaging sells.

After seeing Midnight in Paris last month we've had a soft spot for Hemingway. This poster is well designed and spot on:
