Feeling a little Vintage today
It’s a rainy spring day in Philly. Contrary to popular belief its not ALWAYS sunny in Philadelphia.
I’ve come across a couple vintage ads that I find interesting. Here’s to the new (and last?) season of Mad Men in two weeks!
Thanks Handi Wrap! All the easier to smother him in his sleep!

It doesn’t get more Mad Men than Lucky Strike. Killing yourself, one happy stick at a time!

Number 1! (and the only number I’ll cover)
Well this is my design website, so I guess I should talk about
design related stuff…….right? A place to share inspiration, successes,
failures and all things design. An outlet, when nobody else wants to
hear about how terrible the kerning is on that burger joint’s sign.

this to be an outlet for both of those things.

something is quite is yet, but it’s something.
