Designer’s Sabbatical: A Visual Tour, Part 1
After eleven years at Chronicle Books, I was fortunate enough to enjoy a three-month sabbatical. My hiatus led me to travel far and away. Germany, Spain, Morocco, Gibraltar, and England were my points of interest. Though I was removed from my day-to-day design responsibilities, the designer in me could not avoid embracing the beautiful design and whimsical typography inherent in these amazing countries. Feast your eyes on the first of a two-part series, starting in Berlin, with pictures that inspire and keep me smiling. Hope they do the same for you.
BERLIN: A humble city teeming with creative and quirky energy. Artists, writers, and designers are thriving in this eclectic, experimental, and tolerant urban haven.
In Berlin, I spent some time with a friend and author, Malin Elmlid, of The Bread Exchange. Here you can see pages from her beautiful, soon-to be released (FALL ’14) cookbook.
MADRID / BARCELONA / SEVILLA: Always laid-back, relaxing, and a culinary haven—Spain is a traveler’s dream. Bring on the tapas!
Relive the experience at home with two authentic cookbooks on Spanish cuisine. . .
And stay tuned for part two of my travels—Morocco, Gibraltar, and England—next week.
