Monthly Pinterest: Family Tree

The wall of family photos has been done a million times. But we really like this trend we've been seeing of incorporating some kind of tree imagery (either painted or decal) and using that as a backdrop for hanging family portraits. Using vintage and rounded frames for the photographs adds to the visual interest, and to the idea of making something old new again.

As usual, we found tons of beautiful ideas across the web of people doing just this. We are definitely incorporating this into our space, when we have 5 spare minutes.


New discovery: Lost Type Co-Op

We were browsing around the interwebs, and stumbled upon a very cool (and well-designed) resource: the Lost Type Co-Op. We found it while looking at some work by our friend Greg Eckler, who recently designed the amazing-looking Atreyu typeface for Lost Type.

From the About page: "The Lost Type Co-Op is a Pay-What-You-Want Type foundry, the first of its kind. Users have the opportunity to pay whatever they like for a font, you can even type in '$0' for a free download. 100% of funds from these sales go directly to the designers of the fonts, respectively."

We're impressed. And we'll definitely be using this resource for future CurlyRed projects.

good design for everyone
