I have a very mixed relationship with asterisks. Namely because about 50% of the time I think about my blog’s name I wish I hadn’t used one. Thinking back I’m not sure why I really chose to put one in, but I regret it every time I do an interview and someone writes that I did it because it was trendy. I’m pretty sure I didn’t sit back and think “Hey, everyone’s using these, I should too”- namely because that’s not how I make design decisions. But hey, it’s there now and there’s no looking back.* So I’m ready to embrace this new asterisk print from Oddhero. Oddhero designed my favorite typography print and are responsible for probably the most talked about piece of artwork we have in our home now. Oddhero recently introduced a new series of prints that celebrate “the four unsung heroes of typography”: the ampersand, exclamation mark, asterisk and question mark. The asterisk is my favorite (above) but you can click here to join the punctuation celebration ($140 each). xo, grace
*Does anyone else wish they’d picked a cooler blog name back in the day? I think D*S is pretty fitting for me now, but I do spent an inordinate amount of my day saying the word “sponge”, so sometimes I wish I’d chosen something cooler. Although admittedly I’m not very cool, so I think D*S is probably appropriately dorky.
