Thanks to all the wonderful humans who made 24 Hours of 24 (i.e. my 24th birthday) the most special ever! As I’m getting up here in my twenties, more than figuring out my path in life and “getting my act together”, I believe it’s most important of all for me to just spend this time investing in my loved ones. And between the pie, sneaker exhibition viewings, harrowing/comical tales of our time together, kung fu movies, Doctor Who marathons, incremental anniversaries, nacho platters, dance parties, and brunches, I love you all so very much.
Flee is an online travel-recommendation engine and booking service which provide comprehensive travel guides on local venues for a growing list of cities. They contracted me to design a website for them which would be modern, elegant, and allow the photography to do a lot of the talking for them. The site is now live and currently sports a generous offering of content and features, both of which will be growing in the coming months.
These guys were super great to work with, and with a stellar product like this, I hope their service does well and that we can work together again soon! Click here to see more of the screens I designed.
One of the things that really stood out to me about Kendrick Lamar’s album good kid, m.A.A.d City, was the realness of struggle. In the lyrical content and skits (and even visual treatments for various songs), he explores his battles with cultural influences around him such as gang violence, drug abuse, alcoholism, and faith (Christianity, to be specific).
While I can’t vouch for the authenticity of any of it (who knows, maybe he’s just as gifted a fiction writer as he is a lyricist), this video for Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe is gorgeous and does a justice as a companion piece to the song.
What a wonderful and unexpected surprise for my birthday! The site I designed for my friends over at Flee launched yesterday! If you’re looking for a quick hip getaway, make this your go-to resource for travel guides and booking! Give ‘er a spin and let me know what you think/if everything’s in proper working order!
