And what you have all been waiting for…

The Ladies of Lattice process video!


We are the champions

A quick overview… 

Basically we won!  And both teams kicked ass.

Congrats to the ladies of lattice for all your hard work and everything we put into this project. I look forward to working with all of you, including team Kiwi in the near future, when we sit in on the creative meetings with Ryan and Sameunderneath.


Crunch time

Tomorrow is final pitch day. I’m sitting at at StudioBard, practicing like no other for tomorrow. And honestly, I’m scared shitless. First ever pitch to a real client… this isn’t some stupid class project where no one gives a rat’s ass. This is real life people!!!!

I am living and breathing and sleeping Sameunderneath now. I am in love with my pitch and all the awesome stuff we’ve designed.

Kiwi, you have some tough competition. Team Lattice is a strong group of women who love competition.

Best of luck to both teams, this has been an awesome six weeks. 


Remember to smile, it makes your butt tickle 🙂

First day at CMD

Today has already been crazy.  I’ve met like a bazillion people, and I’m pretty sure I’ve walked around in a couple of circles, trying to find my “cube.” This is the hugest agency…I’ve never been so overwhelmed. I’m sorry for the person who had to be here the very first two weeks… I would have cried because of all the info I had to pack into my brain.

But, on a more positive note… Ron who works in the audio/video department knows my mom and dad from the audio industry… He makes me feel a little more at home.  And Thorin, he is head of the interactive design department…he is great. He seems super down to earth. 

My only complaint is that I can’t figure out how to get on the email… or sync up to the calender program or any of that good stuff. Hopefully by tomorrow I can figure all that out. I can’t believe it’s almost lunch time. I’m starving…and I miss Carter (the love of my life).

I can’t wait to get settled and finish our design stuff for the pitch.


Last day at Asterix

I can’t even begin to say how sad I am to leave Ilona, the construction workers outside, and the smell of rotten fish from Masu the sushi restaurant next door. I love this building and everyone who works for the company. Chris is awesome, and I was so happy that I got to meet her in person when she flew in from San Fran.  Katherine and Stephen are great assets to the team and not to mention wonderful and very funny people. And of course, I’ve been working side by side, going to lunch and even doing some people watching with Ilona.  I will miss everyone dearly.

Thank you all for the opportunity of a lifetime.


So have you ever read the names of the vitamins you are taking? Well I found out some very interesting ones…

Would you take something called “Meno”……

Or how about “Prosflow”……

Both very interesting names… lol

Wow… it’s been way too long

It’s seriously probably been over a week since I’ve blogged. I’ve been so busy with SUN and my project that I’m working on at Asterix. I get no sleep anymore… I am working 24/7 and when I’m not working, I am thinking about work, and when I’m not thinking about work, I’m dreaming about layouts, and color guides, and typefaces… INSANE.

But this is what I love… I really do breathe, live, sleep, eat design…LITERALLY.

Day 1 at AsterixGroup

Group Meeting at ID Branding

Today Lattice and Kiwi met in our small groups, after a great presentation from ID branding.  We spent the day brainstorming and developing our marketing plan. We made some real progress as a group and I can’t wait to see what our creative minds will develop.

I start at Asterix group on Monday, and I heard there is a big project in store for me to work on when I get there… I CAN’T WAIT!!! I’m starting to network and make fabulous connections with people and hopefully form life-long friendships.

Live. Laugh. Love

Last day at HMH

So sad.. Today is my last day at HMH. I love this agency and I can totally see myself employed here in the future. Every single person here is friendly and every single person is willing to go the extra mile.  I heard a great little piece of advice from one of my fav people here…

She said “In this industry, it’s really hard to get your foot in the door, but that’s the most important part. It took me a long time to get my foot in the door, but let me tell you… this is the place where you WANT to get your foot in the door.”  

Note to self, my plan for after I graduate:  GET MY FOOT IN THE DOOR AT HMH.

Tomorrow we meet with Lattice, probably and hopefully we will start to finalize and make a project calender. Can’t wait to meet with the girls, and visit ID branding…

I will video blog for you tonight once I get home… since I haven’t been quite up to date with that because my stupid isight camera is broken.  

Love Life.
