Mentoring & inspiring @capuidea @ideanineteen students has been a pure joy, getting so much from them as I hope I’ve given in return. ❤️ Likewise, it’s been a huge honor being alongside @pmilelli whom I’ve been a fan of ever since I saw his first #VancouverOpera posters designed by Arlene Cotter at Karo. I’ve collected whatever I could find that he’s illustrated, including the #VictoriaOpera set designed by the Malahat Group. (Uncropped versions on my IG stories.) See how amazing this is @jominca.e.illustrations? I still have to find the other set designed by Herrainco, but even his book cover for Rainbow Bay.... ❤️😍🥰❤️#pascalmilelli #illustration #vancouverartist #capuidea #capilanouniversity #inspiration

Most designers write a reminder note. Not me. Few minutes with @ohnotypeco @futurefonts purchase + edited my logo. Font is called #Obviously. 😁 #notironic Printing now and sticking to bathroom wall. Back to work! 😎 #ohnotypeco #futurefonts #typography #fontfun #fontlover #typographic #designerlife #yesmydentistscoldedme #again

Friends that bleed together, feed together. 😄😎❤️ Saturdays are always fun giving it with @petepallett! #itsinyoutogive #giveblood

Always wanted a fuller, international #graphicdesign history education so this’ll do! 😍 Love this incredible retrospective look at so many #designschool heroes (Scher, Beirut, Chase, Fili, Brody), friends (Bantjes, BVD) and late discoveries (Kanchev, Apeloig, Kramer, Kamekura, SPIN). Great work @a5jensmueller @juliuswiedemann! Surprised (disappointed?) that @csadesign @duffydesignx weren’t included?! Love all 3 #Taschen collaborations...what’s next? 😎😄🙌 #graphic #design #designbooks #inspiration #designeducation #branddesign #logo #logodesign #branding

Photo 1: I can’t tell you how much the designer in me wants to redesign/replace this sign. Photo 2: Ditto. #nofilter #somewhereinvancouver

After posting the different Draplin portraits, I remembered the illo project done at Capilano pre- @capuidea program. We each picked a famous person (#McCartney was mine) and illustrated them in the style of 2 older ([2] Egon Schiele [3] Fernand Leger) and 2 contemporary ([4] Nancy Stahl & [1] Philip Burke) artists/illustrators. It was great to find these again and recall how hard/fun they were to do. Note my rough “sketch” using gouache on a scrap of treated acetate, and the pretentiously nerdy way of labeling each piece. 😊😎😆 #illustration #capuidea #studentwork

Look?👍🏻 Touch?👍🏻 Have?👎🏻 Want! 😍 @frenchpaperco @kchrey @brenda_cofield you are killing me! But I thank you all for the shortlived bliss. May @draplin and I be reunited again in #designerswag paper heaven, one bright and blessed day!🥰😭 I will gladly trade a limited edition #MitchellPress #Typography calendar for a mint copy of this beauty! 😎❤️ #draplin #draplindesignco #frenchpaper #graphicdesign #paperswag #graphicdesigner #printdesign #illustration

More from this morning when the sun, fog and #autumn trees were showing off their loveliness. 😍 #vancouverisawesome

Stumbled upon this covert photo I took at last @typecon. Refused to lose my marbles and kept my cool after seeing @jessicahische get out of the elevator with her daughter. I hop in, and then @louisefili joins us, making pleasant small talk. 😍 That’s one of many things I love every time I attend #Typecon. Keeping things real while in the presence of #graphicdesign royalty. 😊😄 #typecon2018

What are the chances that new books by two of the greatest #illustrators alive would arrive the same day? 😍 Thank you @jessicahische for sharing your beautiful #lettering #design @typecon! Thank you @oliverjeffers for encouraging me to stay curious, keep a #creative mind, and be thoughtful in everything I do or make. 😊❤️ My eyes are gonna have SO MUCH FUN this weekend! #graphicdesign #handlettering #typography #jessicahische #oliverjeffers #bebrave #keepdrawing #draw #graphic

Pretty sure our postman Manny will make a great father. He knows how to handle and deliver precious cargo! 😂😍 #uppercaselove #creativity #encyclopediaofinspiration #curious #graphicdesign #uppercase #design #uppercasemag
