Designite ~ matches for the mind has returned!
Welcome to those new to this design blog, and a big hearty hug to those returning to the site!
I honestly have to give credit to reubenmiller over at typepad for the inspiration to go back to the keyboard, I do miss the great big world of design.
The purpose of this site is to give inspiration not only to you, but to myself – a freetime designer.
I’ve been doing some planning, and there will be a few new projects on the horizon, which of course I will let you know about. My writing feels clunky, and I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. So bear with me as I gather myself together, and enjoy the new content.

God, there are one or two things that I simply hate in life. One of them is Gardening and the other is the feeling of something under your fingernails.

In between mumbling profanities, and planting frangipannies I managed to actually see how people enjoy gardening.
Though I prefer paper and pen, some would forgo this indoor pursuit for caloused hands, a sweaty brow and a nice row of tulips.
It might be dirty, and somewhat restricted to the over 40’s age group,
but its really just a different form of art.
while I pick the dirt out from under my fingers with a breadtag (1) (2) have a look at some Vertical gardens.
And before I start thinking about posting pictures of gnomes have a look at

In short wordle scans a site or text, provided by you for keywords and metadata.
and then using the words creates a giant colorful word cloud.

Ps. I’m a little in love with the font expressway free right now. I’m off to find the filezzzz. =)

I’ve always wondered what happened to obsolete technology.
Often they break the items down, and recycle them into all kinds of clever things, like astroturf for childrens playgrounds… (tyres not mobile phones!)
Why recycle, when you can ”REDESIGN”
