Cardon Copy

I stumbled upon Cardon Copy the other day and really enjoyed the work that Cardon Webb had posted.  He takes “the vernacular of self distributed fliers and tear-offs we have all seen in our neighborhoods,” redesigns them, and then replaces the original flier. Aside from the written description, the designs are fun and I liked the contrast of the original fliers with his over-designed versions. Since I’ve been looking for a new project to keep me busy, I decided to give it a shot with a flier from the mailbox area in my apartment complex.

Here’s the original flier:

And here’s my new version:

I’m printing this and posting it in the original spot on Monday.

Design Stuff, Music Stuff, Job Stuff, Exercise Stuff

I did a new design for my portfolio website and I really like it. It’s a lot better than what had been up there. I need to add more samples of my work, but that won’t take long at all. You might have noticed I changed the look of my blog, and now they look somewhat similar. I like the continuity.

Speaking of my portfolio website, I’ve sent out another huge round of resumes. I must have sent 100 applications/resumes out. Let’s hope something turns up, because I certainly need a new job.

There aren’t any big plans for this weekend, but I’m ok with that. I’ve got a new schedule for working out and running, so Saturday should be a long run, and I’ve been missing trail running so I’ll probably head into Pisgah to go on a long one. Plus, I need to start saving some money for this “spring break” thing that’s being planned. A long weekend in Florida staying in a place for free near the beach sounds great.
