I saw this over on Pia Jane Bijkerk’s blog and couldn’t help reposting. It is so cute. It has a very “Pooh-sticks” kind of nostalgia, no? All the boats are made by Lenny, who has a blog documenting all this, and who combs beaches and makes little boats with the found objects. This inspired Jeff … Continue reading

A+ (Adam + Amy’s invite booklet)

LOVE these wedding invite/booklet designed by Craig Duffney and letter pressed by Studio on Fire. The way both Amy and Adam had their own capital designed and used throughout (on their own and together as headers and footers) is just a really lovely touch. Also, I wish I saw this more often. I’m a story-teller … Continue reading

nobody puts baby in a corner (2)

I have no idea who did these posters. But I like them. Good job HBO. Anyone know who did them? (Sorry I didn’t do my research… SO busy!)


Heatherwick Studio’s design for the UK Pavilion for the Shanghai 2010 Expo is just nuts. I mean LOOK at it.

POSTER FRIDAY// curran hatleberg

I know it’s Tuesday, but this was literally my Poster Friday. And by that I mean  didn’t blog on Friday because I was traveling up to Yale to see the MFA photography thesis show—Specifically the work of Curran Hatleberg. There was a lot of work that I really loved (and some I really didn’t), but … Continue reading


Thanks to Zach I’m sitting around playing with color wheels when I should be sleeping. But hey, who doesn’t love color? The website, colorschemedesigner.com, breaks down the color wheel for you and provides hex codes for six different types of relationships (for the purpose of this demo we’ll start with a teal, and see how … Continue reading
