guest blogger: seesaw designs

Seesaw Designs is a local graphic design and letterpress studio run by three insanely talented ladies, Lindsay, Angela and Raquel. They are one of those companies where you just stare at their work and dream of being so creative (drool over these for a little while).
In addition to being an amazing local business, their blog is the loveliest and they have, possibly, the most perfect vintage etsy shop, seesaw vintage.
We are so very excited to have them here today to share some of their no. 1 favorite things about hot and wonderful Phoenix. So, if you don't know them already, we are happy to introduce you to the lovely ladies of seesaw designs...

Our five favorite things about Phoenix




We love everything about this neighborhood restaurant, from the mid-century Wendell Burnette space it occupies to it's amazing lunch and dinner offerings (the Forbidden Rice is a vegetarian's dream). Chef Aaron Chamberlain does an amazing job of creating delicious wood-fired cuisine, and we were thrilled to begin working with them on a brand new website (coming soon!)


2. Thrifting and Vintage Finds


Phoenix is chock-full of amazing vintage clothes and furniture, and who doesn't love a good treasure hunt? The three of us are compulsive thrifters and spend our evenings and weekends searching for goodies for our online vintage shop, seesaw vintage.


3. Mid Century Modern Architecture


The valley has been home to some amazing architects, among them Frank Lloyd Wright, Al Beadle and Ralph Haver. We love the many mid-century gems that you can find sprinkled throughout the city. Modern Phoenix is a great resource for learning more about these historic buildings and neighborhoods.


4. Phoenix's Growing Creative + Small Business Community


We think Phoenix is awesome, and are proud to know people and organizations that are working to unite the community and get the word out. Phoenix Design Week is a great event serving the design community that happens every fall. Local First Arizona is an organization that works year-round to bring attention to all of the great community gems in the Valley. They put out a "small wonders" map yearly, as well.


We love Georganne and all the lovely finds at Frances, her boutique on Central and Camelback. Plus, its next door to Smeeks, a great place to feed your sweet tooth.

Thank you so much to Seesaw Designs!
You can ooh and aww over their work for a while, pick out something from their fantastic vintage shop or just stop in to their lovely blog and say hello (tell them we sent you!).
And, of course, if you need anything by way of design, we think these are your girls.
We hope you are enjoying these guest bloggers as much as we are.
See you back here tomorrow!
