September 28th, 2012 | Picture of the Week

Creating “this month” in pictures is definitely one of my favorite blog posts to write. I get to look back at all the busy/fun/exciting times we’ve had and were able to capture on film.

We’re excited to keep the Fall season going strong and are eager to see what October has in store for us!

We want to…

September 26th, 2012 | Inspiration

On this date forty-three years ago (September 26, 1969), the Beatles released their Abbey Road album. That album cover design – with the famous image of the Beatles walking across Abbey Road – has become a timeless iconic classic. There is even a webcam set up at Abbey Road in London which live streams brave tourists and fans trying to recreate that famous crossing while frustrated drivers whiz by.

I love this Beatles website and here is a link to more background facts about the Abbey Road…

On Thursday, Elements joined forces with Connecticut Creatives and hosted an event for the launch of Amy and Ben’s book, Best Practices for Graphic Designer, Grids & Page Layouts. It was such a fun event with a mix of clients, vendors, old friends, new friends, and family. The party was hosted at Geronimo in New Haven and we had food, drinks, giveaways and a lot of fun! Here are a few candids that I snapped throughout the night. We appreciate everyone who came out to join us!

It’s hard to believe we are already into September, isn’t it? We hope you enjoyed this nice, extended holiday weekend.

I did my best to squeeze in a few of my favorite end-of-summer favorites: Today I am again running in the New Haven RoadRace 20k , I managed this weekend to sneak in one final boat trip and enjoyed a romantic nighttime bonfire while watching the sunset over the water with my sweetie on the beach.
