42 Pressed

42 Pressed-1-Design Crush

 

It’s been awhile since a letterpress shop smacked me upside the head and left me reeling. (In a good way.) But that’s exactly what I happened when I first laid eyes on 42 Pressed a few months ago. The color, style, and sizing of every piece is spot on spectacular. Shop founder and creative director Jackie Hall Robinson fuses hand painting, patterns, typography, and letterpress to create something so good that I can’t help but gush.

Day Designer

Whitney-English-Day-Designer-1-Design-Crush

 

It’s that time of the year when I wax on about how much Whitney English’s Day Designer has changed my workflow and basically my life. I’m on my third year for 2015, and can honestly say I’ve never felt like my time is being used more efficiently or that I’ve been more organized. (And trust me, those are no small words.)

I’ve been using a paper planner since I was in high school, so I’ve seen my share of layouts and designs. And what I love most about the Day Designer is that Whitney was looking for a better way to manage her days and created a solution instead of waiting for something perfect to come along. There are a few pieces that won’t be a fit for every user, like the business planning section in the front and a few sections on each daily page, but they’re easy to overlook if you don’t need them.

That said, the Day Designer is brilliantly put together for the small business owner and freelancer. My favorite element is the split day schedule of an hourly timeline and a checklist. I also highly rely on the Due block at the top of each page and the big picture monthly calendar that starts each section for trip and project planning.

I just finished flipping through 2014 and can’t believe everything that I somehow managed to accomplish. I can hardly wait to see what’s in store for the new year!
