Mismatched Mess

of life, love, fashion, & forgetting to update

Design Love!



I love my day job, I really do. I get to work with great designers and web developers to create some cool retail websites. But most of what I do is oversee them. I critique, show them changes, assign them more work. Creatively, it’s not very hands-on. Plus, while I fell in love with web design (I was totally one of those people who created Xanga and Myspace ‘layouts’ for everyone in high school, then loved the web design classes in college even more), my true love will always lie in design work.

The flyer above is my latest project. I was asked to create this for a discussion at the university. The boxing theme was their idea and I absolutely love how it turned out. Vintage-inspired, intense, but in a cheesy way. It was a lot of fun to create. Now I miss designing. That why I create the quoteables and printables on this blog and I hope to add more!

I don’t have much time for taking on many assignments like the above flyer anymore, but I sure love putting my all into designing the images on these blog posts. It’s such a learning experience every time I start a new design project. This is my passion. I’ll never be sick of it. And to think I almost went to college for acting. psh.

P.S. The girl in that Senior Invitation is my little sis. If you like makeup and hair you should follow her on Instagram because she’s a pro!

I am an East Texan graphic designer living in Canterbury, Kent, UK with my husband. My favorite sport is rearranging my furniture. When I'm not writing blogs, you can find me making fun of myself on Snapchat or Twitter, or being hipster on Instagram. Coffee, vintage and The Office reruns for life.
