Betty Crocker Cookbook

A few photos of a beautiful vintage Betty Crocker cookbook I found a few months back. Love the 2-color illustrations and the quirky type. It’s interesting to see how vintage illustrators were able to use a single color in various different ways within the same illustration.

Mini Documentaries

Lately, I’ve been loving independent short documentaries. Specifically, Made by Hand. As a result, I’m really proud of my boyfriend (not that I’m biased or anything…), who recently worked on a similar format of documentary with a few of the W+K 12.7 members. There is a blog post here on the Wieden+Kennedy blog, but I’ve embedded the video below.

I love the idea of short docs. They allow for free creative exploration in terms of the actual look and feel of the films and also shine the spotlight on lesser-known people/places/jobs. Not to mention, this one reinforces why Portland is awesome.
