A year ago, I really wasn’t sure that I could come up with 365 different owls. I figured I’d come up with a few, burn out on the project well before the 365th owl, and move on to something else. I never imagined that when I finally posted my “last” owl, I wouldn’t want to stop, but that’s exactly the case.
This project has helped me keep my design sanity through a very interesting year–a year that has brought about a major change in my career. Effective Tuesday, June 25th at 5pm EST, I will no longer be a full time designer. I’ll be leaving behind my day job as a book designer for the most amazing job ever! On July 1, I’ll start as the first official full-time, paid staff person for the local Girls on the Run council. Of course, I’ll be doing some design work as part of my job, but I’ll also be doing some freelance design work for fun.
So during my last few weeks as a designer, I’m going to keep my daily owl project alive. No promises after July 1st, but for now you can plan on checking back each day for a new cooky retro owl.
