And likes to take pictures. And is obsessed with Zooey Deschanel. And drinks good coffee and donuts from Four Barrel a lot. And there's other stuff about her that's cool.
Annie was also my maid of honor! But I told myself I wouldn't make this post about my wedding (even though I just had to post a picture of how adorable she looked at the wedding, which I hope she doesn't mind). After years of creating awesome designs and fine tuning who she is as a designer, she's started her own website. It's still in its beginning stages, but I can't wait to see how it grows! You can follow her likes and cool stuff like that on her blog, buy her designs on Minted.com, or follow her little sentences on Twitter.
It's the best thing to be surrounded by people that inspire you, are motivated to create, and have great style. Annie Clark is definitely all of that, plus a really great friend. I look at the designs she pumps out and get totally jealous that I didn't go to school to learn graphic design or have the patience to sit down and teach myself Photoshop. Luckily, my husband, another awesome graphic designer lets me sit behind him to try and learn while he designs (I like to call myself a backseat designer), but who am I kidding. I'll leave the designing to Annie and him. But the neat thing about being around Annie and her designs is that it's brought me to love the tiny details and differences in typefaces, spacing between letters, and the way colors can make a design brilliant or horrific. Although I'm not a graphic designer, I feel I look at the world as half of one because of the things I've learned from both Annie and Andres.
