Are you okay?

September 10 (Thursday) is a day of action when we remind ourselves that every day is the day to ask, “are you okay?” if someone in your world is struggling with life’s ups and downs. 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone so continue to check in with your mates.

Some links this week that made me look.

Circumstances have made it even more important for us all to stay connected and, for those who are able, be willing to support those around us. This website has great resources on constructive ways to do exactly that.

Sharon Park
This week I discovered the work of Sharon Park and it’s the first time in a long while that I have been totally blown away by a personal portfolio website. It’s so fun and the projects on here are also incredible. When I’m not okay, one of my favourite things to do is swing, so that was another nice little surprise.

OK. Okay.
Isabel Castillo Guijarro tells Creative Boom ‘all will be okay in the end’ with a luscious set of typography postcards. Well okay then.

Have an okay week,

Been a while since I browsed some good old fashioned design blogs, to be honest! This one is a compilation of visual identities from hundreds of talented design studios around the world and had some projects on here that I had never seen before.
