Thinkdig’s Weblog

I’m Katie, a graphic designer who mostly somersaults through life. My blog is all about things that inspire me – be it art, design, or other snippets i find along the way.

seek and you shall find

this is how i’ve felt for the past 8 months – seeking, searching, looking to find my place again after being laid off. and finally, after countless interviews and far too much stress,  a new opportunity fell out of the sky and landed right into my lap. lesson learned: good things happen when you are patient and have faith.

as promised, here’s some details about my new job…

#1. it’s located in a renovated house on Grand Avenue, that was built in 1913. i LOVE houses with character! oh, and they share the house with an architect firm. how cool is that?

#2. it’s a really small firm, with only two other designers besides myself. they have a really good reputation in the design community, and work with some really great clients including Django, Raccoon River, Centro, Hotel Fort Des Moines, Gateway Market, Principal Financial Group….To view examples, check out their website at conyersdesign.com

#3. and last but not least…i’m so excited to be designing again! Yay!!!  :)

This super cute stack of suitcases is really making me want to skip the country, get away for awhile on an adventurous voyage… sigh… dreaming is nice though isn’t it?
