Aloha Friday: 2011 SuperlativesPosted: December 30, 2011
Happy Aloha Friday (actually from Hawaii, woo!).
2011 was a year of highs and lows and an emotional rollercoaster to say the least. I’m ready to bid it adieu and start fresh with 2012, but first I thought I’d offer a brief look back over the past year. I saw a similar post on another blog and thought I’d do my own design spin on it.
Best iPhone App: Tie between Instagram and Hipstamatic (you can tell I think this, as around 80% of my photos have been through these)
Best iPad App: Twitter. Never thought I’d “tweet”, but the amazingly clean and functional design of this twitter app literally turned me into a tweeter. Check it out.
Best New (to my collection) Typeface: Museo. Clean lines, modern flow, a nice little, versatile font.
Best New TV Show: Homeland. Hands down. Have you seen it?? I confess I love my CW guilty pleasures, but Homeland is a legitimately great show with staying power. And if Claire Danes doesn’t win an Emmy or Golden Globe, I’ll be shocked.
Best Memory: Our wedding. This was definitely the high point of my year and I’m so fortunate to have so many amazing memories from the entire week with all our friends and family.
Best Book: Steve Jobs bio. A whole post to come on this next week, but if you have some free time, pick up this book.
Best New Website: Pinterest. This site has alleviated my need for the countless amounts of “inspiration” folders I had cluttering my desktop.
Hope everyone has a nice New Year’s and a fabulous start to the New Year!
