I was looking for a sign, when it came to me, in the form of—a sign. This Haus Mirabelle sign once hung on my grandparents’ B&B in northern Germany, and now it lives with me. A graphic designer in Vancouver, I arrived here after circumnavigating a career in travel. I love to observe the designs that surround us, I wanted to blog, so I was in need of a name. With its DIN-like typography, its connection to the travel industry, and why, it even bears my name, it was a sign indeed.
And so my blog is born. To get this venture off properly, and in honour of my other grandmother, I have included in the picture a statuette of the Hindu elephant god Ganesh, the Lord of Success, for good luck. With HausMirabelleBlog, I would like to explore these ideas:
- Graphic design moments
- Travel and design
- And maybe elephants.
