Heartfish Press Softly Launches…

It’s here! Happy 1.11.11! I sort of finished the new website and started preparing things for going live at 1:11pm… but of course, there are few problems (i.e URL — update: FIXED!) and I am still working working as of right now… but it’s out there now :) This is a really soft launch, though, and I was expecting some problems… so I’m not losing my mind or anything ;)

From the homepage, you can find that Heartfish Press is proud and excited to be showing at the National Stationery Show this year, that will be the big launch!

I still have so much to add for both my new shop and the custom gallery, I’ll just have to do the updates everyday this month… so please come back often :) The blog re-design is going to follow soon, too…! xo Hijiri

Bloomsberry & Co. Think Chocolate

Randy got me this chocolate from Bloomsberry & Co. and I love the packaging!

I like what it says on the box, too.

“Peace on earth. May this chocolate bring you peace (and quiet) these Holidays, if only for a moment.”

(it did, thank you.)

and how cute is this wrapping paper inside the box!

and after going to their website, I found out that they have all sorts of fun chocolates and their website is really fun to look around, too.

Eat me. chocolate:

and more on their website. I like how fun they are and each packaging is different and designed well. Chocolate always makes me happy so this is a double treat for me!


1 year ago today, December 29th, we moved to New York. It’s been exactly a year living in the city. I feel like I am officially settled…

JAQK Cellars

I passed by this cute window in SF and I was so drawn to the whole style of the graphics (it’s hard to see because of the reflection, but it says “JAQKCELLARS.COM” on the left side – click the image to view larger)

And when I visited their website, I saw a whole bunch of cool wine bottle designs! I love their website design, too. I also love the concept of the brand, very fun and playful, and each design is different, but suits the naming and the concept.

The homepage:

Each bottle has its own design that rotate through the homepage and here are some from the website:

Makes me wanna try everything!

Lilla Rogers Studio

Lilla Rogers Studio represents amazing artisits/illustrators and I really like their website, it’s playful, it’s fun, it’s fully illustated and it fits their brand perfectly.

I love eveyone‘s work represented by the studio, too! No matter where you click, you’ll find some inspirations!
