Branding yourself is ridiculous. I really need to sit down and hash out what/how I want to represent myself, look at how I design etc. I have redesigned and played around with the blog and my folio site SO many times and I’m still not happy with it, so it sits there very shabby with very little new work on display at all.

It’s nice actually I think in the last little while at work I’ve loosened my grip on how things should always be and it’s freeing me up. I’m also finally noticing some kind of ‘Rebecca’ishness’ to my work – which is oddly nice and weird at the same time. I’ve had a huge variety of different formats lately from billboards to toilet paper and soon an annual report. I like challenging formats. The freelance work continues to roll in, which is great because they’re often jobs I really enjoy however the whole work again after you’ve worked a full day is a bit much at times.

My ideal little design world would consist of: Branding, Websites (Coding), Invitations and Photography. No DL brochures here Jeeves.

Heaven wheels above you, displaying to you her eternal glories, and still your eyes are on the ground – Dante Alighieri

It’s totally naff that the ‘heaven’ theme is number 7. I hate cliches.

We do walk around with our eyes on the ground. Sometimes I think that my eyes aren’t anywhere at all, so easy to get lost inside your own brain and wrapped in your own internal world.

The Word became flesh, and here then is some kind of heaven mashed with earth. It’s beautiful. It’s here yet not. My awareness is poorer than I might yearn for. Daily I hope to ask to be woken up. Daily I hope to ask. Over and over and over.

Hold on, hold on to your old ways
Or put off, put off every old face.
And I know, I know you are changed out.
And I hope, I hope you’re arranged out.
But I’m still asleep
And you woke me up again.

– Sufjan Stevens

Sometimes the rain and the cold makes heroes of blankets and tea.

But the rest of the time it just makes you want Spring. Spring I am ready for you.
