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!!!  :)

Good news, Good day

our love day

tony and i enjoyed valentine’s day with a quiet night at home. we made dinner, sipped some wine, and curled up on the couch to watch a rental [if you haven’t seen ‘the invention of lying’, i would strongly recommend it. hilarious!] some goodies to show our love included homemade cards, a very well-designed trivia book, and a moustache mug, because after all…

“A man without a moustache is a man without a soul.” -Confucius

Tony made me this awesome work of art using layers of paper! I love, love, love it!

[notice the matching outfits…yes, we are complete nerds.

be mine.

we should share the love EVERY day of the year, not just on valentine’s day. but it is such a lovely holiday, don’t ya think?

holiday wish list

Here’s a few things that I would DIE for…

the babycakes cookbook…written by the girls of the vegan bakery in nyc!

[or any cookbook really…i am really going to try to start making bonafide meals…really, i am!]

i have wanted a market bag by Moop forevvvvvver.

as a girl who has a quirky fetish for office supplies, i would like ANYTHING from the fabulous Present&Correct.

like these memo blocks…

or these colored masking tapes…

or this fabulous chalkboard…
