Moth Animation Studio

February 21, 2018

Just found this terrific logo animation and showreel for an animation studio in London called Moth. I love the contemporary, hand-drawn style of their work! Their website states, “Often taking complex or difficult subjects and portraying them in imaginative ways, Moth strives to create vivid work that retains an intelligent and distinct style whether for commercial clients, editorial pieces or short films.”

Dropmark

January 21, 2018

Last semester I discovered a visual organization platform called Dropmark. Created by Oak, an independent design-led product studio in Brooklyn, New York, Dropmark is my go-to way to collect images and inspiration for my projects at school. Similar to Pinterest, you can create collections, but it goes even further because you can store links and files, too, with source information and even stacks within collections.

There are also features for searching, tagging, and adding directly from your browser or Mac menubar. The product is clean, functional, and incredibly useful for designers of all types. If you have a minute, check out their website and see for yourself how you can integrate it into your workflow.

Free Period Press

Recently discovered this small Cleveland-based publisher of creative products, and I’m completely obsessed. Their products balance self-care, creativity, action, and playfulness. I pre-ordered their new to-do notebook on Kickstarter, and I am looking forward to using their Habit Calendar to kick-start my 2018 productivity. They also sell stickers, coloring books, and more!
