Avocado Toast That Kicks

April 15, 2014

I'm a little late to both the avocado toast and sriracha bandwagon. Don't get me wrong, I love avocado. In fact I'm pretty sure it's some kind of rule that if you live in California you have to put avocado on everything (which I do). But avocado smeared on bread didn't seem all that exciting to me and I'm really not all that into super spicy foods. Then one day I decided I would give it a try and see what the hype was all about. First I tried just plain avocado on toast and it was better than I could have ever imagined. The creamy avocado on a slice warm crunchy bread sounds so simple but I'm telling you, it's amazing! From there I went crazy and decided to add a few more ingredients to really make it kick: a little bit of lime, salt, and sriracha. And voilĂ  we have a masterpiece! I eat this baby morning, noon, and night. You really need to give it a try. You won't be sorry. 

1 slice of bread
1/2 of an avocado
1/2 of a lime

Toast your bread of choice. I really like Trader Joe's gluten free bread. It makes super great toast and adds great flavor to this recipe, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand. Next, score your avocado and scoop it out onto your toast. With a fork gently mash it up. Squeeze the lime juice out over the avocado, sprinkle with salt and squirt on some sriracha. Repeat every day!

New Cards coming soon!

April 10, 2014

Yep you heard right! 9 new cards are coming to our print shop soon. I spent yesterday prepping files for print and everything is ready to go. It's been so fun watching our ideas progress into some of my favorite work so far (and by watch I mean spend hours and hours designing) I can't wait to share them all with you!

In Motion: Inside The Edit

April 9, 2014

I came across this video today on Facebook. Not only does it tell the story of what a good editor actually has to do, it's also animated beautifully! This animation is exactly the kind of work I (Jake) love to do. And I also love to edit videos, so it gets a double thumbs up in my book!

This is Ground

April 7, 2014

Between the two of us Jake and I have a decent amount of tech. And with tech comes cords, lots of cords. Most of the time our earphones get "neatly"stuffed in our bag along with chargers and any other things we need. I don't know how it happens, but I'm pretty sure tiny little creatures find their way into our bags and tie knots in our earphones. I'm telling you, every time they get me. So when This is Ground emailed us asking if we would like to try out some of their products we jumped at the opportunity. They hand make the most perfect leather goods to keep all your stuff neat and tidy. 

I just can't get over the cuteness of the cord tacos! Isn't that the most perfect name for these little guys? Especially for a company based in a city that has a taco truck on every corner. #soLA

I particularly love their pencil roll. Literally right before they emailed us I was trying to find something that could easily hold all my pencils when I'm on the go. This is so perfect. I can just roll it up and toss it in my bag. 

Jake's a fan of the Cordita. It's great for keeping all his cords in one place and easy to take with him back and forth to work everyday. 

These couldn't have come at a more perfect time. We will be putting them to good use this year with all of our upcoming trips. Thanks This is Ground! We love everything!

Be sure to check out their site. They have so many good things. Not to mention Knick Knack Nachos! Can I have a side of guac with that?
