#GoodFriday was when they put Jesus on the cross. He gave himself to die for our sins. They did not know what they were doing. #lego #cross #jesus

So what do you expect with your iPhone taking a eclipse moon photo. I know there are better photos out there so this is just my fun try at getting something. I did wake up my doughter to see it. #moon #eclips #night #sky

I’ve always loves this photo. I made it for a #background of a cell phone. It’s just the main drag at the #Oceanside #beach. A little dark but love the colors and how it looks on my phone. #palmtree #clouds #sunset #sky

It’s fun being creative with what you find at Costco. I was inspired by someone else’s cart photo and then I have always loved the yellow line in front of the store it is so big and bold.  #costco #shopping

So every time I go shopping at Trader Joe’s I see this box and I have always had issues with the design. I picked out the Oatmeal box to show a better cookie box that was done right.

I always just go back to the basics. I think of it as my 1. 2. 3. process. What is the first second and third thing your eyes go to with any design or branding you find? Does your eyes bounce around the page not knowing what is the most important? What is the most important and why?

So these are some of the things I think about and for the Chocolate Chip Cookie box they made everything the same size and when I first saw it I had thought it was the back side of the box but then turned it over and found there was no title or headline so it must have been the front.

If I would have done this layout I would take the image from the back and place it on the front taking the body text on the left and put it under or to the side of the image some how working together with it. The tame would be first and the cookie would stand out as the main point. It helps to having the bag because they are cookies that come in a bag. 

The back side could be what is on the front so they can place as much text to explain their selves as they need.

The Oatmeal cookie box speaks for itself. You know what that is and it even has the same thing on the back. That helps those stocking to not even think about what way they are putting it up. The info we want more of is all on the side where we can learn more when we want it. We go to the store to buy the cookie not the story about the cookie.

At least my basic 1. 2. 3. is a start to keep designs focus. Let me know your thoughts.

I enjoy my running so that I can stay in shape but also do better in my work and family time. One of my favorite runs is to this beach on Oceanside. Because I have had some tight deadlines I have not been fortunate to get down there lately. #running #bisselldesign #stressrelease #oceanside #cassidybeach  (at Cassidy Street Beach, South O, CA)

This was a beer I really enjoyed. Also the label bought my eyes. It reminds me of 007 or a Hitchcock movie title. You can get it at your nearest Trader Joes.

Priority of #surfing is kind of low these days. Our friends made this cool wall mount for 6 of 14 decks. Well 8 completes. Helps out with the clutter. We will get wet soon. #skate #skatelife #oldmanskatesesh #skateboarding #bisselldesign
