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

i snapped a few pics of our apartment this weekend since we had just done a deep-clean. we might not have a yard to play in or an open porch to sit on…and it’s a pain to walk up and down 3 floors to do laundry…and it may be a little too pricey for a couple like us…but i LOVE living here.
