What We’re Reading Now / Fall Nights
Don’t Make Me Think, Revisited by Steve Krug : After working with design clients for years, I’m beginning to lend my skillset to content creation and web design as I collaborate with developers. It’s been a growing season as I navigate more conversations and negotiations than before. As a designer, I fall on the side of making things shiny and pretty rather than focusing on usability. This book is great for thinking about the usability and functionality of sites. It’s helpful for the strategic building of sites, thinking about stats, bounceback rates, and a site focused on specific calls to action.
Half Baked Harvest Cookbook by Tiegen Gerard: If you’ve followed the blog Half Baked Harvest, you’ll know these recipes through and through. From honey granola bars to homemade gnocchi, these dishes are stunning and approachable, perfect for weeknight dinners or casual, elegant gatherings.
The First Mess Cookbook by Laura Wright: With a focus on plant-based foods, The First Mess provides a creative and stunning perspective on meatless dishes. We love this cookbook for families that are hoping to incorporate a bit more nutrition in their diet.
Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity by David Allen: I love life-hacks. When it comes to getting things done, being able to use a variety of hacks to increase my efficiency and productivity adds an extra ounce of energy. With strategy from automation and batching, anything that David Allen writes is pure gold.
Weekday, Weekend by Emma Chapman and Elsie Larson: The concept behind this cookbook is one I absolutely love. For the weekday portion of the cookbook, there are healthy and simple weeknight meals. In the weekend section of the book, there’s slightly more indulgent recipes whether in time or as a special treat great for your family or for gatherings.
