Show Your Work!
Austin Kleon released another book called Show Your Work! And if you can remember, I shared some of my favorite pages from his previous book Steal Like An Artist about two years ago! I figured I should do the same for its sequel, since I think it’s a pretty useful guide for those who are ready to showcase their portfolio. :)

Holiday Gift Ideas/Wishlist
I tried to make a collage of
affordable holiday gift ideas for you to use as inspiration for last minute holiday shopping, but I believe I ended up making my own wish list.
By the way, if you want an Instax Mini for Christmas, you should totally join our giveaway! Happy holidays, everyone! <3
Type Tuesdays: Resources for Beginners
I’m deeply fascinated with Typography. It was my favorite lesson/activity during the graphic design course at Central Saints Martin. I think I like the challenge of playing with letters, making them visually appealing but still be able to send across a message.
I know I’m not the only one who’s interested in Typography here, so I thought I’ll share some great resources. Enjoy and make type! <3
I bought a 365 journal last month and instead of writing down my thoughts, I use it to practice my ~calligraphy~ skills. :) Hopefully, when I have time, I’ll render them using Illustrator and improve them further.
Design: Locally Made!
I know there tons of design-related blogs that are locally made but they’re not as popular when compared to fashion blogs. Or maybe that’s just coming from my point of view, where I’m more affiliated with fashion bloggers than with design bloggers. Either way, they don’t receive that much hype while top fashion bloggers are almost considered as celebrities.
So, I made a quick list of design blogs that are locally made. Or at least, blogs managed by young and talented designers of different fields. I want to make this list longer, so don’t forget to recommend your favorite blogs! Enjoy! :)
