You're Never Too Young To Love Vintage

You're Never Too Young To Love Vintage


How old does something have to be before it's considered vintage? Searching for this answer will result in a varying degree of answers. In my mind, I consider vintage to be anything of my grandparents era. I have so many fond memories of playing with vintage toys at their house or sitting at my grandfather's old desk. Let's take a look at some fun toys, desks, and design assets.

5 Colors of the Olympics


The opening ceremony to the 2014 Winter Olympics begins this week in Sochi, Russia. Spectators from all of the world will be watching as their favorite athletes are put to the ultimate test.

No matter where you are from, the 5 Olympic rings are universally known as the symbol of the the greatest sporting events on earth. But, have you ever wondered what it means? The colorful rings actually stand for each of the 5 continents involved in the games; America, Australia, Asia, Africa and Europe. The colors were chosen to represent all of the colors that you can find on the flags of each of the participating countries.

 Each country that sponsors the Olympics also tends to stay within the same color pattern when creating the logo for that year's event. Let's take a look at some of the logos from the past.Sochi 2014

The Beauty Of Beaches

The Beauty Of Beaches


I ran across an article the other day and I was amazed by the completely stunning photos of a beach illuminated by the glowing phytoplankton. I was mesmerized by its elegance and moreover the fact that Mother Nature never ceases to create awe-inspiring beauty in this world.

 

I would love to be able to see such a site one day in person. For now though, just seeing these images made me feel really lucky to live in San Francisco. While we don't have bioluminescent phytoplankton, I am still able to picnic on the beach even in the "winter" months.  For this native mid-westerner, that is amazing in and of itself. I felt the urge to find some other amazing beach photos, which are so easy to get lost in.

Feeling a little beachy yourself? Let's take a look at some inspirational web design elements that can be added to your next project.
