Friendly, Clean Bookkeeping Logo

My client runs a bookkeeping business that serves mostly small, local businesses, many of which are owned by women. She wanted a logo that would be clean and modern but still friendly and approachable.

I like the way it turned out. There’s some movement in the stack of blowing papers but the type is solid and unwavering. It so easily lent itself to a slogan, “We keep it all together,” which the client was happy to use.

For her business card, we reversed the colors for a big splash of the mango color on one side.

Curved Sofas are the Next Big Thing

Posted 26 October 2018 at 8:42 PM | Comments (0)

Linear, Midcentury-inspired sofas have been holding court for a while now, but that’s about to change. ‘70s-inspired curvy styles have been creeping into the market over the past couple of years, and now we’re seeing them at a lower, more accessible price point. And you know what that means.

It’s about to hit the masses.

I’m truly going to miss these darker floors, which [we think] had been covered with wall-to-wall carpeting for years. We decided to go with a lighter wood tone to balance out all the dark brick in the living room and the soon-to-be darker kitchen cabinetry. Here’s midway through sanding.

This room was my mortal enemy until today. The sanded floors look pretty! So I’ve promoted it to an arch rival.

Sanded the new hardwood floor today. It looks lovely. I know it will be slightly darker when it’s sealed, but it looks perfect right now.
