On Point Brand Identity
This brand identity for the On Being podcast is on point. The clean, elegant design was done by none other than Pentagram. I love the refined typography and the simplicity of the black and white palette. Not only does On Being have style, but substance. Hosted by Krista Tippet, it’s a Peabody Award-winning public radio show and podcast that explores these questions: What does it mean to be human? How do we want to live? And who will we be to each other? I listen to this podcast periodically and would highly recommend it!
Judge a Book by it’s Cover
Untamed, Glennon Doyle
Yes, I judge books by their covers. I can’t buy a book that has a poorly designed cover. I love the colours and textures of this cover! And the inside, oh, the inside with its insights on life. This is one of my favourite quotes from the book: “When a woman finally learns that pleasing the world is impossible, she becomes free to learn how to please herself.”
Monk by the sea
I first saw this Caspar David Friedrich painting in Fine Art History class in my second year at the University of Toronto. I fell in love with it immediately. The German painter created this piece c1809. The juxtaposition of the tiny, tiny monk, against the expanse of the sea and sky gives such a wonderful perspective. Some interpret this painting as meaning that humans are insignificant. I don’t see it that way. I see it as positioning humans in the proper context: important and also dwarfed by the magnitude of nature.
The Best Dessert I’ve Never Made
I’ve followed the Sprinkles Bakes dessert blog for years and I’ve never baked one single recipe from it. I follow it simply because the baked goods are so pretty! Look at these beautiful Tiramisu cupcakes ! I have no idea how they taste – if you actually bake them, please let me know!
